  • Summary: I love these headphones. I switched from Shure E3's about 2 years and these are in a totally different league. Amazing clear and full sound. Westone is a great company and have been there with awesome customer support. I recently got a pair of the Westone UM56 custom tips, AMAZING! Highly recommend getting a pair of UM56 no matter what headphones you have.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Improves Sound Quality, Improves System Function, Versatile
  • Cons: No replacable cable

  • 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. I suffered severe tinnitus using these for the first time; I can only hope this was an isolated incident.

  • 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. They have more extended highs, cleaner mids, more extended bass, and most importantly, they are simply more dynamic and involving than the UM1s. About three months ago I upgraded to custom tips, the UM56s.

  • Summary: Notes about Westone UM2’s I deliberated about these phones for a while. I had to get over the sticker shock. Now—I’m over it and I’m glad. WOW! Serious sound. Clear, clean, and uncolored (if you want it to be). The 1st thing I noticed is the loudness. I like turning things way up. Well not on these. Not if I like my drums(ear). This is the first pair of ‘phones I have not had to turn way up high. Not at all.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Lightweight
  • Cons: Hmmm

  • 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. All IEMs I've owned have had some fatal flaw (ER4P with thin sound, E4c with flat, 2D sound) and the UM2 is no exception. Musical notes are a bit fuzzy around the edges, and lack sharpness (though to many this is a positive attribute). The main problem I had with my UM2s was the fit.

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. The 'Westone 2' is their normal series dual driver IEM. Also, the 'UM2 RC' is the version with removable cables, the standard UM2 does not have this feature. Sound: excellent.

  • Summary: simply amazing!! I was a bit hesitant with the price, but money well spent. Sound is incredible ALL round. Perfect amount of low-end. Once i put them on i knew how good they are. I have my iPhone at about 3/4 and its almost too loud. Volume is there if you need it that's for sure. I used the foam buds and it blocked every other sound out, amazing.
