  • Summary: Upgraded from the EP-630 and found them much better (in every aspect listed up there). The build quality of the driver shell itself is rather good, though the wire at the edge of the headphone jack is rather poorly cut, resulting in extra pieces of plastic sticking out. Although this should not affect the listening experience in anyway, it simply doesn't look good. Isolation is great with comply tips and it is really comfortable.

  • Summary: I moved onto these from a pair of Sony EX81's and I have not been completely happy. The plus points for me are definitely their comfort and isolation. I can happily wear them all day, and I felt they are a much better fit than UE Super.Fi 5 pro's. As for the sound I found it a little flat and uninvolving. Bass extension is limited, and improves only slightly with amplification. While detail is good, the highs are rolled off with only the mids really standing out.

  • Summary: Having upgraded from relatively cheap KOSS PLUGs and Audio Technica CK32s, naturally I was expecting improvement in the order of at least a magnitude, and truth be told I wasn't disappointed. But first the not so good news. Bass in the UM1 is tight, well controlled and responsive, but to those used to earbuds or headphones, they would find the impact of the bass inadequate, lacking that 'thump' that adds somewhat to the fun quotient in pop/rock tracks.

  • Excerpt: Плохое соотношение цена/качество
  • Pros: Беруши из пены в комплекте создают хорошую звукоизоляцию, в общем неплохое воспроизведение аудио.
  • Cons: Очень мало басов. На седьмом месяце использования отошел контакт от правого наушника.

  • Excerpt: Сравнивал Westone 1 c Creative Aurvana in-ear 2 они аналогичны. Вот только Creative на много живее играют гораздо интереснее, сочно, да и выглядят куда дороже и качественнее да не только выглядят а таковыми и являются.
  • Pros: 1.Удобно сидят в ушах. 2.Низкое полное сопротивление. 3.Подойдут ко многим переносным аудио устройствам. 4.Хорошая комплектация.
  • Cons: Всё же не оправдали ожиданий. Высокие зарезаны,середина провалена, низы прослушать не удаётся. При чём практически в любом жанре.
