I have these exact earphones and I remembered buying them for $399 + tax. Today while I was checking, I noticed that they got a price drop. Even though its probably the official price from now on, still seems like a really great deal to me. These are equivalent to Shure 530. Keep in mind that the warranty and customer service are not as good as Shure.

Edit: Apparently they have a new redesigned model for $399. That's why. https://www.westone.com/store/mus...-earphones

Bought these a couple of years ago at $310. Fantastic in-ears. The cable is replaceable, sturdy, and thin with no microphonics issues. Smallest comfort tip is great for people with small ear canals; the Shure SE215-CL are also good in-ears but their smallest sleeve is still a bit large for me. Westone is a reputable earphone engineering and manufacturing company among other things. Needless to say, the audio quality is great!

Frequency Response: 20 Hz - 18 kHz
Impedance: 56 Ohms @ 1 kHz

That! I wish these have better build quality. A few years ago, I bought my UM3RX (the older model) and they broke so I got a free replacement from Westone for UM 30 Pro. And after 2-3 years one side sometimes doesn't have sound which is annoying. Still, I really like them and I'm considering getting another pair or go for the Shure 535(which has a much better customer support imo).

While I like my AirPods as well, Westone are one of the best brands in professional IEMs.

Very different sound. UM 30 is pretty balanced. Has a very organic Westone house sound. I have their custom ES60. Love it to death.

I have the Um pro 20 and from reviews this is a big step up. Had the noble x briefly and sold it because of fit issues. If you are looking for something better fitting this will be way better than noble x. Noble X sound > Um pro 20. But without a good fit I couldn't use it.

Thanks for the reply, I mainly focus on sound quality.

Agree. Just saying without a good fit I couldn't get a better sound out of Noble X. I easily lost seal.

You comparing your AirPods to Westone is like comparing an Avalon to a mid-range Bentley
