What customers say about "Key Specs"
Westone W20 IEM Earphones with Detachable Cable
  • The highs are laid back without sounding muffled or dark.
  • It's easy to listen to these for extended periods of time without fatigue.
  • The sound is wonderful. Highly recommend.
  • They provide incredibly crisp sound throughout the highs and mids.
  • Amazingly detailed and smooth sound.
Shure SE425-CL-EFS Sound Isolating Earphones
  • The sound quality is brilliant, richer and deeper compared to the other, the noise isolating is as good.
  • Excellent quality of sound and good noise isolation allows for a very enjoyable experience.
  • Sound quality is unlike anything I've previously heard with superb highs and mids however may be slightly lacking in bass depending on your personal preferences.
  • The isolation is amazing, the soundstage feels unexpectedly large and definitely out of head.
  • I received a pair where the right driver had an issue on some frequencies.

What customers say about "Features"
Westone W20 IEM Earphones with Detachable Cable
  • Very nice product. These fit reasonably well and sound very good.
  • Beautifully made and amazing sounding earphones.
  • The extra ear tips are great - I found the right fit for me in the selection. They really help a lot.
  • Amazing comfort, great choice of tips and detachable cables.
  • The fit in my (small) ears is really good, and because the cord wraps around the ear they hardly ever get pulled out of your ears.
Shure SE425-CL-EFS Sound Isolating Earphones
  • You get your selection of great tips/plugs and can get a really great fit which will help isolate from ambient noise.
  • Gold-plated MMCX connector has a lock-snap mechanism allowing 360-degree rotation for a comfortable fit.
  • The detachable cable is an excellent feature and something that is rarely seen at this price.
  • If your cable fail on you, it can easily be replaced with minimum fuss because the cable has an excellent feature as the detachable cable.
  • There is not enough volume control and pause on the headphones themselves. You have to always use the phone.
