    Westone UM3X Thread

    They're brilliant for rock. Basically they are a very good all-rounder, except possibly for classical because of the slightly recessed treble. Coming from the TF10 you may miss the sparkle, but the mids will probably more than make up for it :)

    Westone UM3X Thread

    Quote:   Yeah I get what you mean, it's accurate but musical... a truly rare gem in the world of IEMs :) Yes, you expressed what I meant where you say that it keeps what's been recorded.. Binaural recordings sound brilliant, and well recorded/mastered albums like The Dark Side of the...

    JDSLabs C421 Preorder is live...

    Quote:   Ah yes, the HiFiMAN HM 60x, HM 80x and upcoming HM 901 also have line-outs, I think. But I doubt you'll be needing a separate dedicated amplifier on those players.

    Quote:   I believe the Sony Walkmans have a line-out, and the Sansa Fuze+ does as well. If I'm not mistaken there is a USB dock you can buy for your Samsung phone for line-level audio... although that may be desktop only.

    Just got the iphone 4s, what is the earphone equivalent of the HD600?

    The HD600 is pretty neutral so you should probably look into Etymotic for a more analytical sound.

    c421 vs O2 - home amp?

    Quote:  No hiss whatsoever. Completely (audibly) black. However there is some channel imbalance at low volumes.

    Earsonics SM3 vs UE TF 10 vs Westone 4

    Quote:   Fair enough, I figured that if you're listening to hip-hop and rap you probably love a coloured signature, as that seems to be the general consensus.  I don't listen to those genres.  :3 Guess he could go for the Ety route too.

    New Australian audio company Audiofly!

    Quote: Dunno, sort of like the UM3X I guess.  Slight midrange and bass bump while not exactly sacrificing highs

    New Australian audio company Audiofly!

    So what I gather is that the AF78 is warm, sort of like toned down Merlin?  Atttraaaaactive.

    Earsonics SM3 vs UE TF 10 vs Westone 4

    Quote: Melodic death metal with too much bass sounds like crap, indie rock is fine as it is (mostly acoustic).  By electronic I don't mean non-music like dubstep, it's more like Owl City.  For which you don't need too much bass for.  I don't use EQ anyway, and I love the sound signature of...

    Earsonics SM3 vs UE TF 10 vs Westone 4

    Quote:   I never had the  superfi 5 pro, I've only ever had the SuperFi 5 (single BA).  Also - tuning matters.  I have a pair of Ety mc3 - they have a single dynamic driver.  However they are fairly accurate and don't have much of the sub bass boom you seem so attracted to.  The EB in the...

    Earsonics SM3 vs UE TF 10 vs Westone 4

    Okay I'll stop my popcorn munching and chime in: Speakers, headphones, and IEMs are different. Period.  You can't just upscale a top-tier IEM to the physical size of a speaker and expect it to sound good.  Impedance, housing shape/size, sensitivity etc are all factors in creating an audio...

    Just got my c421/8620... imaging is superb, sound is lusher and clearer all around.  Treble has improved, and my UM3X are even more revealing and intolerant of bad quality files

    Multi-IEM Review - 352 IEMs compared (Pump Audio Earphones added 04/03/16 p. 1106)

    Quote: More drivers doesn't always mean better.  The single dynamic driver Future Sonics MG6 Pro is arguably just as good as the JH16, and while the Westone ES5 only has 5 drivers it is a worthy competitor too.

    Sennheiser IE800 IEM's

    I sort of highly doubt the 5 - 46,500 hz range.... I doubt Sennheiser would bs these statistics but it's just so absurd.

    New owner of UM3x: Did I buy the wrong earphones?

    The reason you're hearing the hiss is because of the high (56 ohm) impedance and the high sensitivity (125 db).  I'm using the Fiio E7 from my computer and it really mitigated the hiss.  Sound quality improved dramatically as well.

    Souls vs Beats vs Chambers

    It's funny because he's probably hasn't visited Head-Fi since his last post here bout a week ago and yet we're still joking about him....
