Westone + (2 + 3) = 50 Years of Glory

Not surprisingly, Westone announced the release of Westone 2 (or W2 for short) after Westone 1 hit the market just months ago. As the name implies, W2 will be a dual driver tuned toward personal listening (as opposite to UM2's stage monitor tuning). It seems Westone has really dedicated on keeping their Pro-user orientated UM series separated from the more Pop-user orientated W series. You can expect to see it on the street at 27th of this month. Want to keep one? That will be US$249 of your pocket change.

Specifications:
Sensitivity: 117 dB SPL @1kHz
Frequency response: 20 Hz -18 kHz
Impedance: 33 ohms @1kHz
Driver: Dual balanced armatures; 1 low & 1 high frequency
Features: Deluxe travel pouch, ten different eartips, and wax loop for cleaning.
Standard Color: Black

On a side news, Westone also makes available 333 set of limited edition Westone 3 for a cool US$503 each to cerebrate the company's 50th anniversary. Beside a golden printing on the side of the earpiece (normally red), you also get a few more accessories. For that kind of price, this one is reserved for the real hardcore fan.

Beside getting free review samples, I don't work for or get paid by anyone to write anything on this website, or anywhere else in that matter. Also, free review samples are never sold for any financial gain. I do buy gears and review them, but for simplicity you (the reader) should always assume what I review is free sample in nature (and thus comes with all the bias). The website does have Google Ads and Amazon Associates enabled (which I have no direct control over their content) - though I don't write review for a living, nor does the ads generates enough money to cover my breakfast (in fact, not even one breakfast per week). Listening to music and playing with audio gears are purely hobby for me. In short, I am just an audiophiles who happens to have his own blog. Not a journalist who happens to be an audiophile. Oh, and excuse my writing as I am not a native English speaker and can't afford a proofreader. Also, just because I don't write in a negative tone doesn't mean I don't write down the negative aspect of a gear. Please read them carefully.
