Summary: Really supurb. Best buds I have owned. The fitting is initially tricky but I am sure I will master it. Tried my Shure buds for comparison and they were disposed of very quickly. These are well worth the extra cost.
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.
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.
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...
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.
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.
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.
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. 5 stars
Summary: Ive had the Westone 2's for 3 weeks now and I'm very happy with them. For the last year Ive been using the Senn IE8's which are in complete contrast to these. Where as the IE8's are huge on bottom end frequencies and rolled off on the high end, the Westone 2's are much more balanced.
