About the only review I could find. Short-take: dark sound. https://www.headfonia.com/westone...50-review/

check previous sales of people that tried real audio quality headphones,w e are talking headphones used by actual music people while practicing and playing on stage. It also has very good quality drivers, each one playing different types of sounds so you can get a clearer REAL sound like the one created by those crazy ones ... playing it

It might not be the sound people are used to in a $30 bluetooth thingy or a $300 bose, where sound is super equalized and compressed to be used with those because this will give you way more definition. I am not an sound pro but things like this will let you listen to instruments you might not even noticed or heard before, sometimes even the breathing of the singer and THEN si when you equalize sound, NOT before, just the one you want to filter. They usually separate high, lows and mids so each of the 3 drivers will be focused for different types of sound and , as I said give detail ... My surprise was lsitening to music with things I never heard before ... but then its up to what you want

If you like Bass Beats you might not like this

the B model instead of the W is more focused on Bass, but w seem to be more natural

The quality of the hard is really good and once you punt them in your ear they are made to stay ... even sleeping with them, which happened a couple of times :-)

The bluetooth they sell is really mediocre but you can change the cable for what u want ... and if you then add a bluetooth like EarStudio ES100 MK2-24bit you will probably listen to bluetooth audio the way people will tell you it can't happen

Again, its a matter of what you are looking for

I edited spelling mistakes, but also wanted to add the sound is NOT exactly the original that why some semi pros complain, but who knows which was the original one and that is where you see some discussion

Don't consider myself an audiophile by any means, but for this price I will try them out and see if if I like them.

FYI, free return shipping (cost refunded) should apply when using PayPal on this.

Bluetooth cable? I don't understand, are they wireless or not? Smilie Is it just short piece of cable connecting two phones together with battery/ bt module build into cable? But on pictures I see 3.5mm jack so I'm completely confused. Also are they good for running? I'm struggling to find ones that will stay in when I'm jogging...

Bluetooth cable.... - - They don't put anything other than the drivers in the earpiece. The battery, Bluetooth parts, and function controls are all in the cable. The cable does the Bluetooth connection to your phone, etc. https://westoneaudio.com/product/b30-earphones/

I wouldn't run with IEMs unless you don't mind the thumping that comes with every footstep. Also, these will block out ambient noise due to how they sit in your ear, so I definitely wouldn't if you run outdoors.

This earpiece comes with a standard MMCX connector (like many other of this quality) so you can use the included very good quality cable, or switch to others, with 2.5 or 3.5mm cable connectors, to a standard cable with battery and Bluetooth cable ( I wouldnt recommend the westone one ... regular audio) or add $90 and get the mentioned ES100 (wich will give you an very nice battery amplifier, hardware equalizer quality anad really good Bluetooth audio quality like most people will tell you its impossible on bbt
