Westone 2 v Westone UM2 v UE TripleFi 10

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi people

 

Looking for help from anyone with any experience on the Westone 2, the UM2, and UE TripleFi 10.

 

Little profile about me:

I listen to a range of music, but mostly rock, some pop, bit of jazz... not so much hiphop or RNB.

I enjoy listening to live recorded music and being able to get lost in it.

I'll be doing most of my listening from my iphone

 

I'm currently using the UE600. 

 

The situation is that its my birthday in a few days, and I want to treat myself. I've found places that are selling the UE TripleFi 10 for $200AU, Westone 2 for $250AU, and Westone UM2 (with replaceable cables, if that makes a difference) for $300AU. The Westones come with a free amp.

 

Would appreciate any help on which is the best value and if they are worth the upgrade from what I current use.

 

Thanks heaps.

I have owned all 3 extensively.

 

 

UM2 will be best without amp and perhaps best all-rounder.  I really like TF10 but the terrible ergonomics really are an obstacle.  W2 not bad but a little cold and neutral and edgy.  As a whole package UM2 wins out.  Search forum for my recent commnets on UM2 "forgotten classic" thread.
