The main differences in the sound would be that the UM3X has slightly less bass, more forward mids, more accurate highs and much better separation. Don't get me wrong, the BA200 are great, and they do sound quite similar. However, comparing it to UM3X(and i'm being critical here), the westones win. As for your preference with the bass, I wouldn't recommend the UM3X so if the lower end is your priority, you can cross that off your list.


I think the um3x have slightly more bass or at least equal bass quantity to the ba200. The um3x is slightly more forward in the mids than the ba200 is. The ba200, although still warm and smooth, sounds a little more neutral (and slightly thinner) overall. The um3x is indeed an upgrade.

I got the um3x and coppers. The coppers were muddy and not very clear without eq. The um3x is definitely an upgrade but sounds very similar to the ba200. It is warmer and more mid forward.

Did you get these; http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/181347026589?lpid=82

 

I've never had westones, but heard they are very comfortable.  I currently have a custom AS2, which kicks the bass, but definately not the brightest of mids and highs, that being said, it does have a very full 3D sound that is very unique.  I also have the 7550, which is a definate step down from my AS2 in terms of resolution.
