  • Summary: I upgraded from a pair of UM1s because they didn't deliver the bass I wanted.  I used these while practicing the bass and listening to my iPOD.  The dual drivers really deliver a high fidelity sound with hard to believe bass for the size.
  • Pros: Great bass, dual drivers
  • Cons: A little bulky, not cheap

  • Summary: Intro: I must say the UM2 sounds better than the UM3x which I sold shortly after few months. In short; it sounds more articulate,airy and more expansive. The UM3x sounded too bloated,closed in and collapsed to me; the soundstage was too narrow and the UM2 doesn't share the same trait which is great.
  • Pros: Good separation, pleasing midrange. Airy and engaging
  • Cons: Highs roll off

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.

A perfect balance of sound and comfort

8 May 2012
  • Summary: For many years I have tried dozens of earphones across inexpensive and high end brands looking for a balance of comfort and sound quality. I can report that these earphones achieve the perfect balance and are far beyond other earphones including equivalent double armature sets such as Q-Jays by...

its simple

Mr. J. C. Brown, Amazon

  • 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.

The Music Speaks For Itself

  • Summary: The dynamic range means that as long as you have a suitably good sound source - an iPod Classic and 320kbps bitrate is what I'm using - these give detail that I've not heard before using earphones.

Westone UM2

  • Summary: Well, I don't usually bother with writing a review and this is my first one, so bear with me. First a bit of background. I have purchased these as a replacement for my Westone UM1's, which I will now be using for in-ear monitoring in my capacity as a professional drummer.

UM2 earphones

FogbadTheBad, Amazon
6 July 2011
  • Summary: Absolutley loved these ever since I got them out of the box. They fit perfectly and are very comfortable. The sound quality is exceptional. They are just a joy to use. Of course the sound source has to be good and it depends on the owners hearing , but I think these are as good as it gets.
