Which is the better iem for rock: the Westone 2 or the um2? Think Breaking Benjamin, Linkin Park, Nine Inch Nails, Tool, etc. I will be using them for other types of music as well, but the vast majority of it will be rock, and so I am most interested in getting iems that will have a suitable sound signature. Thanks!
