Advice on Westone UM2 RC

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi Guys,

 

I recently bought westone um2 rc some 10 days back. As I keep hearing them with my galaxy S3, I am rarely getting to hear pianos and guitars, while the bass and trebles are good!! Pianos virtually exist, so inaudible that I am recognizing them only bcoz i heard the same songs with diff set of earphones (brainwavz m2).

 

Has anyone faced similar issue? Can I do something to get it right?

The earphones have gone through around 30-40hrs listening. Does burning out the earphones in a proper way help? If so, please guide me in doing that.

 

Thanks in advance,

Pradeep

It's probably the iems showing up your source and or bitrate on the mp3s.  Try getting some Flac on there and see if that makes a difference.

UM2 midrange is very good so something seems wrong her with the source or the files.

Its also very recessed mids. Partly why I bought the UM3X after owning the UM2 less than a month. I am about to open my parcel now and try them.

??  So you hate the bass and midrange of the UM2??  (which I think are fantastic)

 

Yet the treble is probably it's weakest characteristic.

 

Okay....

Thanks for the replies......I was listening to flac's and 320kbps (acd rips)....I am not using any equalizer, but tried it with diff players on my laptop and diff players on my galaxy s3... it looked strange for me too

True, bass is more... but I liked the way these doesnt overlap with mids/treble with westone um2
