    Alternatives to the Shure se215 for stage monitoring?

    I am a touring drum technician and need some IEMs for live stage performances. I am not playing so i don't need the whole mix only the drums and for people to speak to me through them.   The Shures are in budget and look to do the job but was was wondering if there are any alternatives i...

    Budget £350. Lots of requirements :-/

    I'm currently using a pair of Westone 2. The sound quality is great but I've already had to glue them back together on both buds. I seem to have bad luck with iems as I've had a similar problem with a previous pair of UE SuperFi Pros. I also need a mic. I'm using a galaxy note 2 and I don't...

    Advice for new tips + portable amp?

    I have a pair of westone 2's, which I gleefully purchased after being satisfied for a year or so with my W1's, and can't be happier. It's about time for new tips. My comply foam tips are pretty worn out, and I need to go ahead and order some new ones. So my first question is: are there any...

    Westone 1 or Westone 2 or IE60

    Hi, I am a new member of this forum and my pair of se215 has been broken recently. This is my second pair of shure earphones, which was broken because of the wire issues. I will not consider buying another set of IEM from shure due to the durability of the wires.   Recently, I went to a...

    Westone UM Pro 10 or Klipsch X10? (or Westone 2's for $50 more)

    I've been using a pair of Klipsch X10's for about 2 years now with my Sansa Clip Zip (40GB & FLAC files only) along with my FiiO E11 while I'm out and about and last weekend the X10's were destroyed by our new puppy. I have a pair of Westone 4R's, Klipsch X5's and S2's but I was planning on...

    Westone W20's vs Westone 2

    Westone customer service says that the drivers are identical in the W20 and 2. Has anyone compared these?  Did you find the sound identical or different?  Much obliged, Ken

    My IEM Problem...six pairs in my hands now, and feel just "eh" about all of them. Mini-reviews on each inside.

    So, I've been looking for a pair of IEMs for a while...actually a few pairs, but that's beside the point. I've gone through a few of these things and the best I've thought about any of them is "hey, this isn't bad" which is not exactly a glowing endorsement. Anyway, I thought y'all folks might...

    Can W2 (Westone 2) be used as a stage monitor?

    It's just a simple question as the subject. Is W2 capable to be used as on-stage monitor for a contemporary worship/rock band connected with Avion A16 monitoring system?   I have used Shure SE315 for the same purpose and was quite satisfied.   Does anyone have experience on using for...

    Need new daily use IEMs

    I lost my klipsch x10 which I liked, so I need to get another pair:   - 100-300$, probably not more, probably. - not custom fitted - comfort and isolation are important, I'll be wearing them for hours every day, and they should shut out noises well. The klipsch was good for these; maybe...

    Which is better in terms of isolation, comfort and build quality?   I am looking to buy one of these. I listen to mainly pop and alternative rock and a little of other genres. Which one will suit me better?   Thanks :)

    Do Westone UMX3's Have The Same Fit As Westone 2's?

    Hello, and thanks in advance for any help.  I own and much enjoy a pair of Westone 2's, finding them extremely comfortable.  I was thinking of upgrading to Westone UMX3's (from everything I've read the Westone 3's seem a bit too bass heavy for my taste), but I'm worried that they won't fit as...

    How to demo IEM's

    When I got my speakers a couple years ago, I read a LOT of reviews on forums, online magazines, etc.   I also demoed five pairs in my home, and countless others in various stores.  I drove an hour away sometimes to hear a particular speaker.  With IEM's it doesn't seem to be that easy. I used a...

    IE7s vs. Westone 2?

    I have some IE7s already and while I love the sound and soundstage, they do not fit me very well. Those stock foam pads are pretty horrible and none of my plastic tips really fit me either.   I was thinking I could try the Westone 2 which get raving reviews, and are right within my budget...
