I had E500s a while back, the W3 is significantly narrower.

Yes I do. I keep switching tips trying to find a better fit/sound. To me, the medium Shure olives are too short. I cut the tri-flange to a single flange, but find it is a bit too big and uncomfortable. I'm currently trying out the medium clear silicon tips.

Can we see pics of them in the ear (westone 3's) also, I'd be interested to see how flush these appear. - Thanks.

I have both here in my office and the W3 is smaller than the SE530. They are close, but the W3 is a little smaller.

Thanks - they seem to fit in the ear quite well (could do with a front view so-to-speak i.e. person facing the camera - shot with Shure's in ear then another with the Westone's in...)

Appreciate the link though

Ever since the incident, my wife doesn't let me post pictures of myself on the web.

Just to clarify, you mean the W3's tips (the part the foamies or flanges slide over) are too short right?
I noticed that they seem shorter than the Shures...
