Westone 3 True-Fit review

 

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. That has to be one of our favorite expressions here at CNET, and the hearing professionals who head up Westone clearly abide by it. In 2006, we got our hands on the company's only two pairs of consumer earphones--the...

The Westone 3 True-Fit Earphones offer exceptional sound quality, useful accessories, and a durable design.

The Westone 3 True-Fit Earphones are expensive, and the earpieces are large and may not fit securely.

The Westone 3 True-Fit Earphones feature top-of-the-line sound to go with their top-of-the-line price tag; they should be a top choice for audiophiles who desire ultraportable headphones.

Westone UM1 Single Driver True Fit Earphones

The Westone UM1 Single Driver True Fit Earphones offer excellent clarity and ample low-end response. The headphones are also attractively designed.

The Westone UM1's earpiece covers aren't always as secure as they should be.

Westone's UM1 Single Driver True Fit Earphones are a fantastic set of in-ear headphones for audiophiles who lack the money (or desire) to buy an ultra-high-end model.

Westone 3 Earphones

 

Westone's long awaited 3-series earphones deliver as promised, uncompromised sound quality, and they effectively set a new standard for high end in-ears. Compared to the old UM2s these new 3s are light years ahead in terms of sound quality. If you...

Westone 3 True-Fit Earphones review

 

The promise of personal re-creation of a music experience is the long-sought holy grail for both listeners and those who want to provide the tools to listen to that experience. Those hopes took a big step closer with the release of the Westone 3...

It is bass, not base. Quit relying on your spell-checker and proof read your article.

Reviews: Westone Westone 3 Three-Way Speaker Earphones

 

Thanks to manufacturing difficulties, nearly two years passed between the announcement and the first shipments of Westone 3, which commenced in the past month. Yet the world of triple-driver earphones hasn't changed that much. It is still dominated by...

For audiophiles, the choice between Westone's, Shure's, and UE's highest-end in-canal earphones is pretty clear. If you're looking for neutral triple-driver canalphones, Ultimate Ears' Triple.fi 10 Pro offers that, at the lowest current entry price...

Consumer review (head-fi.org)

If you can overlook its boomy/muddy bass. . ..

 

I don't like to buy headphones solely based on people's recommendations without auditioning them first, but the reality is, you often have to because you just don't have the opportunity to audition exactly the models you are interested in due to where...

Very comfortable, great cable, slick design

Bass is way too boomy/muddy, upp-mids too bright, treble a bit recessed
