It was actually a joke, mate. You can't really compare them after all - one's an IEM, and the other's a can. One's purportedly a high-end earphone, and the other is nothing but an unabashed bass cannon. But to be frank, the XB500 is very, very comfortable for a headphone.

If anybody is interested, I just posted my review of W50: http://www.head-fi.org/products/westone-w50-five-driver-universal-fit-noise-isolating-earphones-78505/reviews/13490 including detailed comparison to W60, UM Pro 50, and SE846.

 

W50 can shine, but you absolutely need a quality low impedance source and a set of silver or silver-plated cables to get there.  In all seriousness, driving them from my Galaxy Note 4 with Epic cable and then from QA360 with Whiplash Pure Silver cable was Night'n'Day.

 

Btw, W50 is on sale for $599 right now on Earphonesolutions and HeadphonesCanada.  It's still pricey, but at that price more reasonable for 5-driver IEM.
