What I like the most.
1. Best service and warranty I've ever seen
2. Most comfortable and isolating IEM's that I've tried
3. One of the most silent and sturdy cable design
Now 1,2,3 applies to all westone products
I find them quite good for Rock. They are colored and fun, but the sound is natural and never sibilant. These are the only ones I can listen for hours without ever getting tired. For my other phones like UE TF 10's, K701, or even the ever neutral RE0 I find myself getting tired just after a while.
For Rock, Pop, Alternative, Electronic, House, Jazz, they are just outstanding. The only one I have trouble with is classical, it just doesn't have the clarity or the instrument separation like the RE0 or the K701 that I own. For Rock, I think they're great. If you want something more neutral you should go for the westone 4
