  • Summary: This is my first review and I'm not an audiophile so bear with me. And due to my incredibly bad writing, this could be short. I had this earphone for about 2 weeks now. And during those 2 weeks, I've been listening to Jazz, Rock, Pop, Indie, Techno, and a little Dubstep via a ROTEL CD Player to a PIONEER A400AMP.   Design Ok, the design is a love it or hate it thing (In my opinion). They were meant for the Studio use. Its a clear shell and with the driver exposed.
  • Pros: Great sounding, Variety of tips, Removable Cable, Fantastic Isolation (Up to 25 dB)
  • Cons: Incredibly dodgy build quality

  • Summary: I lost these on the train, and boy was I sad.   UM2 are good phones, the best thing about Westone is their almost legendary build quality. Make no mistake, these puppies are built to last: strain relief out the woozah, and a thick plastic housing that looks and feels tough. Westone's braided cables are also the best cables I've used; low microphonic and very tangle free.
  • Pros: built like a brick shithouse, good soundstage
  • Cons: isolation, price

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Сравнивал по звучанию с Westone 2, Westone UM3X и Westone 4. Между двумя последними и UM2 разницы не обнаружил(своим ухом)? решил не переплачивать. Спасибо ребятам из ***(ищите в инете по запросу "наушники послушать", обязательно уточните по теелефону, можно ли, в действительности послушать затычки...), у них можно послушать любые(!) наушники из тех, что в наличии. Да и цены у них более, чем демократичные.
  • Pros: Мне они подошли по удобству-эргономике идеально, охват частот широчайший при высоком качестве. Громкость просто чумовая. Звукоизоляция лучше чем у KOSS the Plug(субъективно) Микрофонный эффект не заметил. Производство USA
  • Cons: Ну, цена, прежде всего. Купил за 10460. Не сменный кабель, нет микрофона. Штекер толстоват - не вставляется в samsung 900x, да и не надо, все ровно сплошные помехи оттуда. Модель взял прозрачную - через пластик виден клей. Недостатки не влияют на качество, громкость и удобство. Пока не знаю, может и не достаток вовсе, но кабель не отсоединяется
