  • Summary: I bought Westone IEMs in Hearing Aids Center. It came with its own traveling bag, tiny brush, headphone cable holder, and many cushions. In the first days of my use Westone UM2, I used soft rubber cushions.

  • Summary: The Westone UM2 can lead you on a long journey to find the perfect way to augment the sound, whether through amps or equailzation. The warm bass comes close to sounding like "bass-boost," even when indiviidual songs give you hope for a more accurate sound.

  • Summary: I had the UM1s, which I used with the long Complys for about seven months before I upgraded to the the UM2s which I used with the same tips. Everything the UM1s do well, the UM2s do significantly better.

  • Summary: The UM2s are very much a "fun" sound when compared to some of its immediate competitors the Etymotic ER4P and Shure E4c. The bass is very present, and the impact rivals some full-sized cans.

Fabulous

  • Summary: This is the first time that I have spent this much on a pair of earphones. I was nervous, particulary when I 'fessed up to the other half! These are worth every penny. The sound is astounding. I now realise how much you miss when using cheaper audio products.

Highly recommended IEMs (if you can afford them).

  • Summary: When I decided to downsize from my Pioneer HDJ-2000 headphones, sorting through all the different in-ear monitors (IEMs) was a daunting task. In the end, between Shure and Westone, I chose the Westone UM2 based on reviews around the net. Note that the UM series is Westone's "studio monitor" series.
