“I've used several earphones by several companies and at price points ranging from $50-$400 but I use these while commuting by train in Tokyo. I bought mine in Japan for ￥4500 or about $50 retail after listening to them after having read in Hi-Fi + magazine. I tried various earphones at the store but failed to find a pair that surpassed them at the price point. I prefer a crisp...” --gdbk
“ This a relatively solid case, well cushioned, good sized and very functional. Given that - I am at a complete loss as to why the closure is so poorly made. I bought 2 of these and within 60 days BOTH case latches developed a lateral crack running along the clasp left to right - in one instance it broke off completely. I had bought them from Sweetwater and they replaced both of them...” --Lifter59

The sound of the UM series is very good, but the WESTONE 4R is the closest I have come to the sound of my FOCAL speakers. While the sound was pleasing when using the COMPLY foam tips, the UM56 custom tips took everything up a level. ...” --psych_major

“ Disclaimer I bought these about 3 years ago, used them a lot and got to "know" them well. The (sort of a) good thing is: They still perform as good as they did when I first tried them on. But that was not too good. Back then I felt disenchanted: they somehow sounded unimpressive, which left me confused. I mean, I based my decision to buy the most expensive earphones I had ever owned solely...” --Checkbox G
