Saving up my money for these headphones.  Had the UM2s for a bit, and if the Westone 3’s are even better, I’m sold.

They are priced higher than the Shure SE530’s, which are very, very good headphones.  I wonder whether these are better?

Otaku2, these are not priced higher.  The Shure SE530’s retail price is $499 ($549 with PTH control) and these Westone’s will retail for $399.

FINALLY!  I heard these at MacWorld almost two years ago…they were fantastic…however six months ago I gave up and bought the Shure SE530s.  They’re great, but maybe not as musical as the Westone 3s.  I’d still consider getting them…but the current economy isn’t a great time to be late in rolling a pricey product.

@HB:  The SE530PTH is $388 brand new at Amazon.  I’m guessing it will be a while before the Westones are discounted.
