Today, Westone has expanded its in-ear product line to provide unparalleled sound quality for all on-stage musicians, as well as for casual listeners who want a high-fidelity sound experience.

Westone Story

Established in 1959 as a custom-fit earpiece manufacturer, Westone has become known worldwide as "The In-Ear Experts." From its roots of working with hearing health professionals to produce custom-fit products for hearing aids and protection, Westone has expanded into offering consumer audio products and is the world's premier designer of high performance in-ear musicians' monitors and earphones.

Westone became a master of audio technology as the result of requests from popular rock musicians in the early 1980s. They wanted the ability to hear specific instruments or vocals while on stage yet reduce overall stage volume to protect their hearing. As a solution, Westone created the first balanced armature driver in-ear monitor that became the standard for professional musicians.

I run almost everyday for an hour and have always been looking for a nice headphone that sticks in my ears. I will have to say that these headphones really are comfy and fit well. First 2 days of using it was heaven.

Day 3 was the day i started having issues on the right side. Volume was soft on that side and in some occasion there was no sound. And till today, i am still waiting for my replacement to come in. I am not sure i was purely unlucky with a lemon set or if it was damaged by sweat.

Just 2 days ago, i took it out again to try and found a bigger horror. My headphones smell like a damn smelly gym!!! See, the cables are not insulated by rubber but more fabric material (not sure what material it is) and while i wipe it down daily, it absorbs my sweat.

I will still keep my 1-1 exchange for traveling purpose but for events that makes me perspire lots, this is staying far away from it.

All this for less than 2 weeks of experience with a rather costly headphones......

I bought these headphones to run and liked the fact that they were supposed to be water/sweat proof and they had a built in remote. They are light, fit great, and have awesome bass and overall sound quality. I'd made the mistake in the past of running with headphones with an inline remote that were NOT for sweat and the remote stopped working almost immediately, as soon as it got wet. Unfortunately, I only got two runs in before the same fate befell these. Initially the volume kept dropping off without me touching the remote, then all the buttons stopped working. Since these are supposed to be weather resistant I can only assume this was a fluke and I plan to order a replacement pair. The sound and fit would have gotten these a 5 star rating if they had survived the sweat. If the next pair fails, which is a distinct possibility since the only other reviewer on here had eerily similar results, these will become a 1 star product...

*Update: I ordered a second pair of these headphones and after running in them twice, the inline remote stopped working again, because a bit of sweat dripped down the cable into the remote. This was identical to the experience with my first pair. While the sound quality is great, these are anything but weatherproof adventure headphones. Beware.

I've owned a set of custom molded Westone ES2 in-ear monitors for about 13 years, so I am familiar with the Westone sound and quality. I have recently started to travel quite a bit, and was in the market for a quality set of monitors in the $100 - $150 range. These sound almost as good as the $700 ES2! I am not happy with the cloth coated cable. The ES2 has a braided metal exterior, which is non absorbent, and much more flexible. Where I would never use these on-stage, they are a nice upgrade for those who demand more from a set of personal monitors, without getting into the custom fit models.

I replaced a set of Westone 3s with these after the 3s had run their very useful life. I like the cloth covered cables as they prevent the horrible tangles of all other rubber cords. The over ear shaped cord helps them stay in place along with the in ear design, and the silicone tips are the most comfortable I have every had. The volume and call answer buttons are placed on the right ear cable, which is appropriately placed if you like to run the cable under your shirt as the buttons remain reachable as opposed to below the Y. They are light weight and stay in place for a five mile run or an hour in the gym. The sound is not as deep and rich as the 3s, but the cost quite a bit less and the quality is still better than any other in ear earphones I have tried.

I bought these because they are supposedly for outdoor use, which means they are supposed to be able to handle moisture. However, the first pair I had very quickly immediately began cutting out when it was damp or if I was sweating. I assumed they were just defective so I exchanged them for a new pair. The second pair, after three months, has started doing the same thing. They are simply not durable or sturdy headphones and despite the claim of being weather resistant, they definitely are not. These were basically a rip off.

I can't say enough good things about these headphones. I still have a pair of Shure SE215, and although the sound quality is great, they are uncomfortable to use for long periods of time. I use earbuds when travelling and even a 1.5-hr flight was too much for the SE215s. I started looking for replacement earbuds some months ago these were my requirements:

- Sound quality similar or better than the SE215s.
- Great fit/comfort for long flights.
- Integrated microphone and volume/skip controls (these were more "nice to have" features).

I got the Westone Alphas as a recommendation from an Audiophile acquaintance, and I must say they exceeded my expectations. Sound quality is superb: nice and controlled bass, not overwhelming to drown other frequencies. Mid and high frequencies are perfectly balanced (I'm hearing details in songs that I hadn't heard before!).

In the comfort front, they are great. They come with several tips of different materials and sizes and the actual driver housing is smaller than the Shures. A week after buying them I went on a business trip to Asia (+16 hr flight) and I had no issues at all with them, no pain or soreness in my ears. That was truly impressive.

The design and construction quality is great. Although they are advertised as being rugged, they are not bulky and are discrete enough to be used in a business environment. The reflective cables are not disturbing either (that was one of my main concerns before buying them) so that I can use them in the office as well. Everything from the tips to the case is top quality.
