Hi, my Westone UM1 was spoilt and I'm given the replacement upgrade option. Which of these IEMs should I choose?
I had listened to W40 and the only things I dislike are the vocals are a little veiled, has sounds placed a little further than I like though not a big issue and its annoyingly swivelling wire (I much prefer UM1 wire). I'm wondering if changing the cable will be able to solve the 3 problems listed especially the vocals part and wire as I really like every other thing about it. If so, any cable type recommendations?
I had also listened to the UM PRO 30 and I really liked the vocals part of it as it is placed much more forward and not veiled as compared W40, though I disliked the fact that I felt as if the singer is possessing my body and singing right inside my head or beside my ears. Otherwise, I felt that UM PRO 30 neglected the other aspects of the sound frequencies beside the vocals.
Westone has given me the replacement upgrade options to replace my spoilt UM1 with W1, W2, W3, W4R, Adventure series, Talk Series, UM1, UM3XRC, UM PRO 10, UM PRO 20, UM PRO 30, W10, W20 or W40. Choose one of them.
The genres I listened to are, Chinese POP, JPOP, KPOP, Instrumentals, Ballads. I like to enjoy hearing the singers' voices as they croon, the sound of the piano, violins, flute etc.
Disregarding the price, which should I choose?
