    Hello

    I've been looking for a new pair of headphones for a while; I've considered the Shure E2C (SCL2), Bose in-ear UE Super.fi 3, and Westone UM1.

    I am almost certain I want the Westone, they fit, they're durable, they look cool, the only problem is, based on many reviews and the descriptions, they don't have the exact sound I'm looking for, most of the headphones that do are beyond my price range ($100).

    The sound I want is clear, detailed mids and highs, and bassy/thumpy lows. With the frequency range and balanced armature of the UM1, it has more of a natural, balanced sound - not exactly what I'm looking for. So my question is: could the iPod equalizer (on Bass Booster) compensate for this lack of bass in the Westone UM1?

    Thanks in advance
