Which is the better iem for rock: Westone 2 or um2?

post #1 of 3

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!

The Westone 2's are more open sounding, more musical and have better treble detail.  The UM2's are more closed in sounding, warmer with a smaller soundstage.  I defininitely preferred the W2.
