Westone releasing AC2 new Custom Monitor

post #1 of 11

Westone is releasing a new Custom for those of us on a budget.  http://www.westonemusicproducts.com/westone/2010/10/introducing-the-ac2.html

post #2 of 11

I was wondering when Westone would do something like that. I expected something much earlier considering JH and UE have a custom priced there as well. I wonder how it will sound however.

Heh, only on headfi would a $400 IEM be considered as being aimed for "those of us on a budget."

Agreed I would like to see it compared with the JH5 and UE4 clash of the Pee Wees.

I don't know why but the UE4 never appealed to me. The JH5 did and these could be tempting. For some reason I'm such a sucker for anything that looks like a good deal.

Yeahs its ES5 or JH3A.  Unless Future Sonics pulls off a home run w/ their new baby.

Except for the bass quantity, this seems like a winner.

According to Westone the AC2's sound signature falls between the UM2 and ES2.

and, having heard the prototype...i can tell you it blows the UE4's out of the water....no contest.
