Westone UM2 Earphones

 

With a price of around $300 you can expect quite some performance from the Westone UM2 Earphones. They are designed as in-ear-monitors and feature two high-end drivers aimed at people that are not willing to accept compromise.

Dual-driver solution, Excellent fit, Superb comfort, Bass and midbass performance, Balanced mids, 50" cable, Copes well with microphonics, Well suited sound signature for most music genres, Sound stage, Open sound, Well worth the price, Detailed sound,...

Pricey

The Westone UM2s strike me as being a good and thoroughly thought out design. Considering the price of nearly $300 these earphones are only suited for audiophiles and perhaps musicians that crave high quality. I think that the Westone UM2s are worth...

Very Nice Headphones

 

Coming from the Etymotic research ER-6i, I decided to go straight for the UM2's and bypassed the UM1's.  They are sweet to the ears let me say.  The bass that I always wanted in my ety's but could never get.  The sound overall is very full and rich.  I...

Great sound without being fussy with proper seal

Definitely among the Worlds best Audio!!!

 

On a recent visit to Canada, I had a chance to give it a try at one of those pro-sound retail shop, Toronto. The Quality of Sound on this UM2 was mind-blowing and could not resist the temptation to buy it.

Light Weight, Comfortable wearing, High Quality Passive Crossover Wiring and Unbelievable

Not for Nursery Rhymes

Westone UM2 IEMs

 

From a UM1 user perspective, the bass seems so much more in terms of quantity and depth. However, the treble seems to have disappeared a little, but its still alright. The superbly rich mids makes listening not fatiguing.

Warm Mids Strong punchy bass Accurate sound stage

Westone UM2 Ultra Fantastic Earphones

 

After previously being extremely disappointed with other ear-bud headphones which command a high price for mediocre sound, I let Mike at Freq City Sound talk me into giving the Westone UM2's a try.

I had high expectations for new earphones, and the UM2's clearly met them

None. I'm very pleased

Westone UM2 Headphone

 

I had the UM1s, which I used with the long Complys for about seven months before I upgraded to the the UM2s which I used with the same tips. Everything the UM1s do well, the UM2s do significantly better. They have more extended highs, cleaner mids,...
