So I am new owner of a pair of UM2 RC with the removable cable. I just got them yesterday and have done some experimenting with tips, i found the the stock foam tips that came on them had the best seal and overall bass quantity, but the mids and highs were lacking, i switched to the triple flange (modified to a bi-flange) and this brought the highs and mids to life still have a good seal cause i can't hear much with the music off, but it seems like the bass took a back seat too the highs and mids now, what is the best way to get the most balanced sound out of the UM2 as far as a tip selection goes.
Westone UM2 questions.

I have to say these are a well balanced iem I am very impressed with my first pair of Westones.

It's 6 of one half dozen of the other.
I have tried all the tips(the sizes that fit me rather) that came with my UM2 RC and by far prefer the comply.
The treble on UM2 is just rolled off. That's their sound signature and one thing I love about them. It gives them a lush, warm sound and I find the mids to be dead on. I could literally listen to them all day without fatigue.
I was entertaining the idea of selling them when my customs come it, but if the new customs don't live up to my expectations the UM2s wont be going anywhere.
By the way thugs mansion (acoustic) by 2pac sounds amazing. The guitar in the beginning and his voice are just absolutely phenomenal. These are just a joy to listen to its been too long since I've had my E5cs but I think these have a bit more detail and are overall better balanced.
