    I of course can't speak for other dealers but we strongly believe that 399.00 will be the final price. If it is lower we will of course charge the lower price.

    Looks great in gloss black, Doug.

    Still think the design could be pushed more, but that's just the industrial designer in me talking. [​IMG]

    The conversion of 399 USD at the current exchange rate to GBP is £205. That means they cost approx £240 +vat!! For us in the UK this is approx the price of the UM2s. Are we being ripped off in the UK? As this is meant to be a superior product!!! [​IMG]

    you're ripped off on pretty much every single thing in the UK compared to the US, it's an expensive place [​IMG] but most places outside the US worse prices so you're not alone ;p

    I've yet to see a single IEM that didn't cost more in the UK.

    Is this going to be the actual price or are they assuming it?




    That is the ballpark figure we gave to the dealers. It is not set in stone yet. I would expect it to stay there though.

    You should outline the "3" a little more. I didn't even know what it was till someone pointed it out. I thought it was a new logo in red. [​IMG]

    It's called negative space. It's like those images where if you look quickly you see one thing and if you really look at it you see another. [​IMG]

    They will come with 3 sets of grey "mushroom tips", 3 sets of clear "bullet tips", 3 sets of comply tips, 1 set of tri-flange tips. This may change, but that's what I've been told.




    That's 10 pairs of tips I'll never use. How 'bout a "pro" version that comes without tips for UM56 owners, at a discount, of course.
    BTW if "P0wderh0und23" means what I think it means, I hope you made it to Summit County last weekend, INSANE powder at Breck.
     
  10. p0wderh0und23
    Yeah that prolly will not happen. Good idea though.

    Yes it does and yes I did. Breck is the fav !

    A powderhoud is a nickname given to skiers/boarders who live to cut fresh powder after an epic dump of freshies in the high country.

    How different are your new non-Comply tips from Shure's tips? I use the Shure grey soft flexes with my UM2 and would be interesting in trying yours if they're any different. Have you been able to compare them, and can you comment on sound and fit?

    P.S. - So which is it, skiing or boarding? I was boarding this weekend (Monday classes are overrated).
     
  14. p0wderh0und23
    They are pretty much the "same". I have honestly not done serious A/B with them as I personally do not like the mushroom tips (my ears are weird.. who knows). I'll ask one of the other guys if he has done any serious A/B.

    I'm a two-planker. Tried boarding.. just didn't do it for me.

    Hmm. Wow. $399 is steep. I was debating UM2 vs. E500 for awhile until news of the Westone 3 emerged--which made me want to wait. Was hoping these would be more like $300-$350.

    That will complicate my purchase. Will I be willing to spend almost twice as much for the new Westone 3 when used UM2s and E500s sell for about half of $399? That's a tough call as as of yet I haven't heard any of these.
