Can someone maybe compare these to the westone um50? I'm looking for something a little different to go along with the um50. Would these just be a side step or a down grade? I've always loved a dynamic Earphone and have used pretty much only BA'S or a hybrid.thanks and happy listening .
I once owned the Um pro50 (ie. twice) and I love them so much. Compared to the UM pro50, the FW01 has bigger images overall, a (lot)bigger soundstage, sound darker than the Um pro50 (even though the Um pro 50 is a very smooth iems) . The bass of the FW01 is as punchy as the Umpro50, but reach deeper and has more body.
If I do not wrongly remember, I think the Mid of the Um pro50 is a little bit more forward than the the FW01. Overall to my ear, the FW01 sound better than the UMpro50 and i would say it's an upgrade more or less.
But what did you mean by word "something a little different" how little is it ?
