    Do I need a AMP for Westone B30 IEM (impedance 110ohms) ?

    Hello everyone, I just bought Westone B30, the sound is not what I expected, and I am expecting strong bass & low end, but the sound is not ideal, it seems not so strong. I use iPhone lighting to 3.5 to play the music without any amp or dac, and I've checked the specs of B30, and the...

    Should I get my Westone E3X's rebuilt or buy new CIEM's?

    I've been using my E3X's for 14 years and they have served me well. I'm a church musician who plays sax and flute but for the past 5 years have migrated to mainly playing bass. My left ear drivers are no longer working properly and need the whole thing rebuilt. I know technology keeps moving...

    UE 5 Pro vs Westone EAS10 (or other CIEMs $500 or less)?

    Hey There, I'm looking to get a pair of budget CIEMs at $500 or less. I've heard good things about both the UE 5s and the Westone EAS10s. Does anyone have experience with both, or either? Additionally, does anyone have alternative recs for this price range? Thank you, the help is much appreciated.

    What happened to westone W80s?

    Went to their website: https://westoneaudio.com/, but no W80 showed up. They only have one line of universals now, which is the Pro X series, never heard of it before. Is the Pro X50 any good compared to their previous flagships like UM Pro 50? And is it still worth it to purchase the W80s or...

I know Shure and Westone make some MMCX compatible bluetooth cables, but I am trying to move everything I have to single cable charging and that means USB-C is a requirement for...

    Before you light those torches and sharpen those pitchforks, hear me out. I have the W40. The sound on these are AMAZING. At least when I used the cable. But I kept getting tired of apple's lightning-to-3.5mm adapter failing for whatever reason (went through a few of them. Thankfully, Apple's...

    Tips to prevent cables tangling?

    How do you prevent the cables from tangling? Some IEMs and cases are worse than others. For example, when the cable is heavier than the ear pieces, then I can more easily wrap and unwrap a coiled cable. This is true, say for many of the Shure IEMs. Less so for the Westone IEMs which...

    Westone ES Series Epic cables have epic failure rate?

    I have been using ES5 and then ES60 for 5 years now and I must have gone through more than 10 cables by now. It's almost every 6 months.

    Westone UM30 Pro Stopped Working

    Have had a set of Westone UM 30 Pros for about 4 years. The right earphone has stopped working. It was intermittent at first and it would work if the cable was turned a certain way, but eventually stopped working completely. Swapping the cable sides doesn't fix it and the left one works either...

    Universal IEM vs Custom IEM with balanced output and options

    Hi all! So, I've been merrily listening to my FiiO X5ii for a couple of years - firstly with some Fidue A73 IEMS, then my B&O H6, and finally with some Sony MDR-650AP in ears. The Fidues were great but started to get a little fatiguing treble wise (I think the X5ii can cause some sibilance if...
