    I've got a pair of barely used (used at church 3 times) Westone IEM's. I'm selling these because I've decided to go with custom IEM's. These are literally in like-new condition. I even have a new set of ear cushions that come standard on them so they won't even have been used from that sense.

    These are the removable cord version.

    All the packaging goodies will be included.
    -Multi-sized cushions
    -1/4in adapter and iphone volume controler
    -carrying case
    -original packaging
    -comes with registration card so you can still register for warranty

    (All contents are packaged in the carrying case in the pic)

    I'll post pictures later tonight/tomorrow morning.

    Price: 300 shipped.

    I'm looking for some higher end IEMs now... these look pretty nice from the reviews I've read. Can OP give me your personal take on them? The IEMs I presently use are severely lacking in the low mids and bass department, so it's hard to use them for myself... looking for something I can mostly get drums, bass front and center, with the other instruments faded back a bit.

    These are indeed triple driver IEM's. As far as the sound, well, I'm no audiophile but I can tell you these have great bass response, and mids and treble are spot on. I was looking for headphones that could handle a good amount of bass and not crackle, pop or distort with a nice open E or low B string and these fit the bill perfectly. The key, like any IEM is getting a good seal; these come with an abundant amount of tips to find just the ones for you. I read that these IEM's were made with the stage musician in mind, and I couldn't be more pleased just looking to upgrade to custom, otherwise I'd be keeping them.

    Let me know if you have any other questions. Updating post with pics tomorrow.

    I have used mine with Shure triple flange tips every week for about 3-1/2 years. I have thought about getting custom molds but am afraid that I won't like them since I am so used to the sound of the Westones.
    These are great for bass. Excellent bass response without hyped boomy bass like you get with alot of in-ears. Mids & highs are balanced so they are good if you sing also.
    They also have great sensitivity so you can listen to music from an Ipod or phone and it will drive them just fine.
    Can you tell I like them???
    Whoever gets these will be happy!

    Thanks Bfisher. You are correct about the sensitivity. I really enjoyed using them with my iphone brought out parts of music I had never heard prior to using these. Made the music come alive.

    I have these monitors as well and they're fantastic. Articulate across the entire spectrum with a little bump in the lows and midrange.

    These are worth it. Excellent sound reproduction with bass. You can dial in the whole stage and get the entire picture. No mud no loss. Going fully custom is the only reason to spend more.
