Customer Reviews

Sound is incredible both treble and bass are very good.
J. Klokkers
The ear cups that come with the product are outstanding, and you have options like the form fitting foam, the rubber/silicone rounded tips, or even a triple coned tip.
C. Cunningham
Bass response extends very low, mids are smooth and present, and the highs sparkle when they should.

When I decided to purchase my first pair of pristine-quality headphones, I tried the Shure SE310s, Shure SE530s, and these Westone 3s. The first and primary thing I noticed was that both of the Shures were focused on clarity and precision with defined mids and medium highs and lows. When you hear a voice with the Shures, it's like the singer is right there singing to you, but the basses and highs are there, but not as focused. The Westone 3s on the other hand have a very sensational sound with very clear highs and lots of bass. The focus on these headphones are the ups and downs of the music. They make the listening experience a roller coaster ride of "wow". In my opinion, if you are listening to rock or pop, then get these. If you are listening to jazz, classical guitar, or musicals, get the Shures. These Westones and the Shure 530s are of comparable quality, but with different focuses.

After the novelty of the Shure SE530s wore off on me, I began to realize that their sound was very consistent, but rarely did I find myself wanting to sing/rap along or dance uncontrollably. In other words, the sound of the 530s was smooth and rich, almost to a fault. I listen to a lot of house and hip-hop music, and the bass frequencies were there, but lacked any visceral impact. With rock music, the cymbal crashes were muffled and the drums didn't resonate or slam like I thought they should.

So while I would have been content to live with the Shures and assume that they were the best, I started reading user impressions on [...] about other high-end universal earphones, namely the Westone 3, Westone UM3x, Sennheiser IE8, and Ultimate Ears Triple.fi. Most users seem to agree that these models have surpassed the 530s. I read that the Westone 3s, Sennheiser IE8s and Triple.fis offered what I was looking for: a more "U"-shaped sound, with the treble and bass accentuated.

After a few months, I gave in and got a pair of the Westone 3s ("W3"), and after 3 days of near non-stop listening, I know I have stepped up in class. The W3 don't get marketed as heavily as the Shures, which in my view is unfortunate because they are of exceptionally high quality and Westone offers great customer service.

Build Quality and Comfort:
The Shure 530s, while well-built, always stuck out of my ears even with the deepest insertion of tips. I haven't had problems with the cable fraying after 3 months of use, but the cable's thickness produced microphonics whenever the cable brushed up against my shirt or hit my chest. These problems are things of the past now that I have the W3. The thin cable is light and hardly makes any noise even when I run.

I also own the Shure SE530 in ear headphones. I never found the Shures to be enjoyable to listen to and these Westones certainly are. The bass is astounding driving the songs along and the treble is satisfying. The big downfall of these headphones is the midrange. I play only lossless files through a Mac laptop, an iPhone and though a Pico Headphone DAC/amp. I have a wide range of music with huge presence such as Mary Chain Carpenter, Jennifer Warnes, Eurythmics and many more. Not once have I heard any presense through the Westones. The midrange is recessed and if you turn up the volume to hear the midrange then the bass pounds your skull into smithereens. I hope that Westone can adjust the voicing or choose another midrange driver for the next incarnation of this product. If you have the money I recommend the product but it's not perfect.

Update:

Now that these headphones have worn in and I have experimented finding the optimal inserts I now get that presence I was missing before. Very impressive.

I have been a musician all my life and have spent years looking for the perfect sound source. Having spent many hours in front of expensive studio monitors, I have always searched for a headphone that will provide that moment experienced by musicians when they walk into the control booth to hear what they've just recorded. I have used many studio headphones, have listened to mid-range and high-range Grado's and Sennheiser's, have spent many hours with the UE triple-fi 10 pro's and the Shure SE 530's, and have agonized over what is missing in all of these headphones and in-ear monitors. The Grado's and Sennheiser's are not exactly appropriate for portable listening and provide little or no sound isolation. The Shure's provide a very flat response but are weak in treble and bass presence. Although seemingly sonically accurate, they provide a compressed sound spectrum, and thus aren't accurate as regards the high and low and presence found in good studio monitors. The Triple-fi 10 pros provide a lot of bass and treble but are muddy in the mid-range and don't allow the listener to hear all the details of the music. The Westone 3's are perhaps not as accurate as the Shure's but they are the closest to the overall musical presence found in the best studio monitors. The treble has wonderful extension and presence. The bass is rich and warm without being overwhelming. The mid-range is crystal clear and each instrument stands out. I can say that they are simply the best sound I have ever experienced from any headphone or in-ear monitor. Moreover they sound just as great whether you are listening to classical, jazz, pop, rock, metal, hip-hop, or world music. And they are the most comfortable of any of the in-ear monitors I have used. A bargain at any price!!
