Yes, Newly Released by Westone® comes a new True-Fit IEM that should hopefully be a good contender in the $200-300 Range. It was just released November 27th, slightly after the well received Westone 1. From what I've read the Westone 2 is like the W1 being an overall improvement over the UM1 with a smaller, more comfortable body, better & more durable professional grade wire for little to no cable noise. As well as having a slightly longer nozzle for better & deeper insertion over the W3. My understanding from Westone & Earphone Solutions is the W2 has all the things & small size that made the W1 better than the UM1 or more comfortable I should say. So we'll see how the new and improved W2 stacks up to the UM2. Here's to hoping it will be very comfortable and sound great, as well as get us close to the W3 sound for much less cost.
It's a Dual Balanced Armature headphone with 1 BA for the lows, and 1 for the mid & higher frequencies. Built more for personal audio and portable listening like ipod, MP3, and CD player usage. Compared to the UM series that are built for studio use. The Westone 1, 2, & 3 should have a different, fun and more colored sound with added realism & punch over the studio UM series. The Westone 2 is being released starting at $249
Enough about that. Everyone here knows plenty about Westone! Mine will be here this week. So after some quality listening I'll be sure to give some input and impressions. Here's some links, and pictures. I'll update with Reviews when some turn up. Oh and I like the blue 2, over the spider look of the W3. I'm also happy to report The Westone 2 comes complete with an inline volume control, ¼” adapter, travel case, and ten different types of eartips to customize the fit to the anatomy of any ear.
