That does not make sense. Post #173 is his own post.

Whoops I just now caught that and it's a questionable post indeed.

Perhaps he misunderstood the discussion of the 846's bass and thought it was about the w60

Be nice for him to reply having made the comment ;-)

Guys, I'm desperate to hear some feedback about the UM pro 50 and W40s. I'm looking for new earbuds which provide textured, "soft", yet thumping bass with soundstage and clarity. I'm not sure which model would provide this to me. I listen to house/electronic/classic/indie mostly. I'm not a bass head but for electronic music whenever there's bass, there also must be bass in headphones too. So can anyone recommend which one I should go with. Or should I wait for W50?

Isn't W40 and W4r the same thing with difference connector?

 

btw I have seen W50 in a hong Kong shop....

I haven't heard the Um 50's but I'm thinking they might more up your alley. The W40's are fantastic but possibly a TINY bit lean in bass. I think the UM series in general has a little more bottom end.

The W30 is much better than the W40 for the music you listed. The W30 has huge thumpy bass, and a forward treble, the classic BMM TSS sound for electronic music. While the W40 is tuned to be very flat and neutral, more for classical, jazz, acoustic type stuff. I personally own the W3 and it is insanely good for electronic music, pop, rap etc. I'm considering upgrading to the new W60, or W50, or UM 50, but I havent done enough research on them to know if they have plenty bass like the W3, if they don't then I will stick to my trust W3.

Seems like pro 50s are to go for bass. Almost everyone says that including customer service I talked to. But since I also listen to other genres, people recommended to go for w40 but yet I couldn't persuade myself for that. I am counting days for w50 and will see how bass will be compared to w40s and then decide. I don't think I will get um prp50s. I've asked one of pro50 users here to listen to one of my favorite house songs and he owns both. He said pro 50s though had more bass, it overpowered the rest of spectrum but w40 had decent refined bass. This is important. My hope is bass will only get better with w50.

Do we know for what spectrum will each driver be dedicated to? Hope bass gets two.

Is there anyone else counting days for w50 like me?

I'm counting days to W60! :biggrin: I just wish I knew how long I'll be counting. :confused:  Will be a nice surprise when it finally gets here.

No because I've finally got the Fiio X5 today, and the W40s have come to life in a really BIG way!

 

I bought these the day after they appeared in the UK after having a shop demo, but have only had an iPhone to play through while awaiting my DAP(s!). Yes, an improvement over a few sub-£100 earphones I had but not a match for my hifi I was looking for (not surprising considering iPhone is not designed as a music player). I found Foam tips supplied (and similar Complys) too bassy and the Silicon supplied much better.

 

With the X5, they have surpassed my expectations, either tip sounds great now, bass perfect on a well recorded track, not too much, not too little, but as far as I can gauge, what I would expect of my hifi which cost many K more.

Same here, have the w40 and waiting for a decent dap other than my 5s, which I don't like using it as a dap cause it drains the battery :S

 

What music format do you use?

Never mind draining the battery, it really doesn't utilise the Westones!

I use mp3, flac, 24/176, 24/192 and have a few untested DSD! I will copy a few listening observations I made in Fiio thread when I get home, because they are as much a review of the W40 as of the X5, both being new to me.

Edit: oops wrong thread, will post in other new Westone one
