    Westone 3 and Klipsch X10

    Hey guys, Can anyone tell me if the Westone 3's are going to be a huge step up over the X10's? I love the X10's(probably my favorite of the iem's that i own). They have great clarity, build, and overall sound, but I've been itching to try out a pair of Westone's, and the 3's are currently at a...

    UE 900 detail but with more bass

    I've been searching for the perfect IEMs for a long time.  I currently own a pair of UE 900s that are superb but for the fact that they have a very subdued low end.  I am a bit of a bass head but I also love the clarity of the 900s.  I also recently tried out the Bowers & Wilkins C5s which, to...

    Most comfortable for lying on my side?

    I seek headphones/earbuds specifically for listening to binaural beats and relaxation programs while lying in bed, which will inevitably include lying on my side, head on a pillow. Would you be so kind as to suggest some models with this specific attribute? My budget is flexible and sound...

    Dear nonpro audiophiles, need your help to choose armature.

    I decide to buy armature for my ipod 4g. I own Brainwavz M2, but sound is very deep and highs are not clear too.(I dont know how to describe it). Meanwhile, Senheiser IE 4 sounds better: cleaner and closer, but only at Huawei (smartphone). On ipod it sounds a bit better that M2. I chose...

    Looking for some IEMs with deep bass (<$350)

    Hey guys, so I've gotten a lot of use out of my Westome UM2s and am ready to upgrade. I'm looking for some IEMs that deliver deep bass that hits hard but doesnt take over the music (ya know, like the b word). I can sacrifice some mids, but trebles and highs would be ideal to keep (I listen to...

    Westone 3's headphones for repairs

    Hi,     Bought these earphones in August 2009 and they've never been outside - turns out that apparently the left cable is cut at a stress point (?) and they can't repair it.  How long do Westone 3's usually last?  I was expecting a lifetime a little longer than 4 years for 350$ earphones...

    Westone 3 vs. Westone 4, ahhh

    I'm thinking about saying bye bye to my SE535's. I have read too many positive things about Westone. Only challenge left is W3 vs. W4. Music I listen to is metal and hard rock but I also listen to prog and bands that can really play (like Rush, Dream Theater, etc...) so I like some instrument...

    Preference over Westone's Universal IEMs

    I FINALLY registered and became a member after all these years of reading threads, reviews and articles on all kinds of things. From In Ear Monitors to Full Sized Headphones, portable amps to Desktop Amps and all sorts.   My place got robbed just a few weeks ago. So, a majority of my gadgets...

    Ferrari of IEM's?

    Hi,   So I'm by no means an expert audiophile or anything of the sort but am slowly becoming obsessed..   I live alone, and easily spend 12-14 hours a day listening to music using in ear headphones. I previously owned the Kilpsch S4's which I lost, and ended up buying some UE 900's from...

    Westone 3 vs Gr07 vs Sm3 vs Fx700 vs Ie8 vs Ex1000 for electronic music

    I know these IEM's have been compared a lot already, but I cant really find which are best for electronic music.  I love bass, but dont want it to recess mids and highs.

    New to high quality audio, and do not want to waste my money.

    After browsing around all day and looking at recommendations and impression threads of high quality IEMs I just can't make my mind up about which IEM would be the best for my musical tastes and with a price range of $200-$300 I am not looking on blowing my money on something I'll be disappointed...

    I lost my TF10s two days ago and after two days of intense crying I've decided to pick up the pieces and carry on.   As a college student, I'm going to have to starve for a month and a half to recuperate my losses, but I'd like suggestions on what to do now.   I bought my TF10s for...

    Westone 3 Vs. Westone UM3X for Trance and Rap

    Hi guys, as the title says, I'm trying to decide between these 2 for a new pair of IEMs.  Any opinions?   -edit- Dont know if this changes anything but, I have (and plan to keep) a pair of TF 10's. Also, W4s are an option as well.

    Another new buyer

    Hello,   I am looking to get some in in ear headphones. I listen to mostly electronic music, more specifically house and dubstep. Price is not an issue. I have always purchased cheap earbuds and I am tired of them breaking. As such, durability is very important to me. Most of their use would...

    D5000 equivalent IEMs

    I'm looking for an IEM which is the closest thing to the Denon D5000s as possible, since I like that sound so much. Is there such a thing? These will be paired with a Cowon X9, if that helps with synergy...   It would also help if it's one that fits well and doesn't require much tweaking and...
