Westone UM2

Pros: Great sounding, Variety of tips, Removable Cable, Fantastic Isolation (Up to 25 DB)

Cons: Incredibly dodgy build quality

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 A400 AMP.   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. I personally like it. Cause it looks very professional, low profile and not in-your-face like Beats.

Excellent bass

Posted

Pros: Great bass, dual drivers

Cons: A little bulky, not cheap

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.  Warning: if you don't want to hear loud and clear bass that stands up in your ears, don't buy these headphones! or use an EQ.
