Ya. Seems like just a repackage of the UM series. I believe the UM Pro 30 will feature 3 drivers just like the UM3X. Seems to me the cable connector is same as shure but without rotations.

Not sure why Westone is focusing on the Low to Mid price range rather than come up with a new flagship which they can charge $1,299+ for.

Not a lot of ppl willing to fork out that much... imagine 1000+ for low-mid vs <100 for high end... low-mid range can cater to the masses.

"The new audiophile connector makes this cable solution conveniently user-removable, upgradeable and replaceable."

The way they say conveniently upgradeable makes me think it's definitely the Shure connectors.
but they say EPIC cable sia.. means EPIC cable also kena revised?

Ya. Seems like just a repackage of the UM series. I believe the UM Pro 30 will feature 3 drivers just like the UM3X. Seems to me the cable connector is same as shure but without rotations.
like confirm will rotate unless got locking mechanism.

I would prefer new innovations to IEMs than just re-tuning and re-marketing of same products.

I guess I expected Westone to be able to afford R&D.
