  • Summary: These are my initial impressions after a week of use, with a 2011 Macbook Air & RSA Shadow. Value: 5/5 Value is relative, so I'm defining this value as relative to the top end IEM market. I don't have any experience with other top end IEM such as the JH13/16 or UE11/18 so I can only compare price.

  • Summary: In the realm of über high-end in-ears where the Westone ES5s roam there are only three real competitors, the JH AUDIO JH|16PROs (8 driver design) and the Ultimate Ears 18 Pros (6 driver design). The Westone ES5s beats them both when it comes to price.

  • Cons: Memory wire not an option, High price ($950), Exotic front plate upgrade option is $125, Oto-Ease is essential with the vinyl tips
