Hi all,

First off, i'm not sure if i'm breaking any forum rules here by asking this question, so please go easy on the newbie


I'm currently shopping for either the Shure E4c or the Westone UM2, and was wondering what sites i should be looking at, and what the best prices are that people have found for these IEMs so far.

So far, the best site i have come across is www.earphonesolutions.com.

Post the cheapest prices you have come across for these phones here! (oh, and let us all know where from, too
)

i got mine for the price from ebay too...if its the same seller, he can definitely be trusted.

I never heard the e4c but i would be surprised indeed if it matched the performance of the UM2. i think a safe piece of advice to give is, if you can afford the UM2, go for it. I am personally very very happy with mine (been using it about 2 months now), esp with trace music, and some bass boost

You use bass boost with the UM-2s?

Actually American Techpushers 189.00 shipped. Although they make you email them to get the price.

Which in itself has probably been bass boosted to the outer edge of the human hearing threshold. Seriously there are times when I wonder how you bass heads can physically actually handle that much bass.

Im in pretty much the exact same position on purchasing the um2s or shure... almost a 100US (including shipping) difference between the two but i dont wanna end up wanting yet another earphone cause the e4's or um2's just miss out on delivering "THE SOUND".. although Im sure Westone and Shure have done a fairly nice job it's a bit scary spending that much on earphones.

Anyone know how long those comply foam tips actually last? (on average I guess if u clean ur ears out everyday for example)
