Summary: I bought the W40's to get something with more range and clarity than my Shure SE425's. Do they get the job done in a word, YES! I had the opportunity to try out the Westone UM3r's, W3's and the W4r, the predecessor to the W40's. The W4r / W40's have the most balanced and musical tone of the three.
Pros: Musical. comfortable. Work well with a wide range of music. With the appropriate source, the W40's are very reveling. Feed them the best you can you will be rewarded.
Cons: A little spend y, But worth it. The W40's could be a little bright or have an edge with low quality sources. The MFI cable did not work well in my computer.

After researching the different brands of IEM’s available in the market for several months, via the internet and in stores, I purchased a pair of Westone W40...
Summary: I don't normally write a review but I really want to tell someone about my opinion about this earphone. (Sorry for my english). I been using westone earphones for years, I had w3, um3x, umpro 30, adv alpha for exercise then the w40 and recently I have shure 846.
Summary: I wasn't sure if I was going to get it because there's not many reviews online. But these earphones are AMAZING. I listen to more mainstream music, a mix of pop/live/EDM. While it certainly lacks the bass (it did tighten after 48 hours of playback music), it's definitely an amazing pair of...

Summary: Truth of the matter is ive owned nunerous high end headphones and besides the sony ex1000 in ears these are my absolute favourite. tbe sony were a little tighter sounding and clinical but less fun. my most recent ones before these were ue900 and truth be told these blow them away for me.
