    Yeah, I know. But there apparently one of the best mid to high level monitors. When I get my job back these will probably be the first things I will buy.

    I've never heard of Westone...anyways the feedback seems good. If you want something to compare them to, they seem similar in quality to my Super.fi 5 p.ros (check my sig for link)

    And, I can't remember what people have said about the UM2s, since everyone has gone for the Westone 3's now

    . Check head-fi for reviews about them.

    Also, they're not expensive

    I've heard of them, but I've never heard anything about them. And the list price is $300, which is why I asked for a comparison to my Super.fi 5's of similar price.

    I would say wait till the UM3x's are released, wait for some reviews (Comparing the UM3x's to the W3's), and maybe see which could suit your needs. I'm pretty sure W3's have sibilance to some people, and some fit issues. You could also look at the Shure SE420 and Sennheiser IE7. They are both reported to be neutral. Also, what types of music do you listen?

    0.0 List price $400....expencive, would it really be worth it just for sound quality and stuff?
