    Pros: I was desperately in need of some new ear buds. I was surfing the net and came across this site. Took a chance and looked for ear buds. What luck, found these read reviews, decided to take that chance, free shipping a BIG plus! Received them in the time that was set, the packing was good, the actual box was different than any I had ever seen. Received a carry case along with extra ear buds for that perfect fit. The actual cord is very durable. Tried them that very day. Love, love them. Thank you
    Cons: None
    Other Comments: Will recommend these to family and friends

    4 out of 5 stars   Great sound and isolation
    By ChrisB (Boulder, CO) June 12, 2014
    Review submitted for Westone Adventure Series ALPHA High Performance Cross-Over In-Ear Earphones (WST78400)
    Verified Reviewer
    Pros: I've found these earphones to have really nice full spectrum sound, without significant emphasis or loss in any segment. Sensitivity is good enough to allow for driving to reasonably high volume. Plus the isolation provided by the foam pads is amazing, which means you can actually hear the music *without* having to push the volume to extremes.
    Cons: The over-ear routing of the cables takes a little getting used to.

    3 out of 5 stars   great if you like heavy bass
    By MarcM June 02, 2014
    Review submitted for Westone Adventure Series ALPHA High Performance Cross-Over In-Ear Earphones (WST78400)
    Verified Reviewer
    Pros: Heavy but not muddy bass. Good isolation. Good for outdoor activities.
    Cons: Mids are recessed and not a lot of seperation. Soundstage is very inside your head.
    Other Comments: Not bad if you get them on sale. I would not pay full price for them. I feel there are better options in the $100+ range. I expected more from Westone anf was slightly dissapointed.

    4 out of 5 stars   Great overall earphones for the price
    May 23, 2014
    Review submitted for Westone Adventure Series ALPHA High Performance Cross-Over In-Ear Earphones (WST78400)
    Verified Reviewer
    Pros: These earphones have excellent overall sound quality and great bass presence without being too heavy. I seem to be lucky that all earphones I've purchased fit perfectly without changing the tips, and these are no different. They are among the most comfortable of any I've used. The in-line controls are a great convenience (if it works with your electronics). They pair well with an amp like the Fiio products. The rubber cord cover that goes over the ear prevents a typical discomfort from long-term used I've experienced with other earphones and it will probably lengthen the lifetime of the cords - the main reason I was purchasing a replacement set is because my previous pair (Shure 210) wore down to bare wire right at the top curve over my ear. The sweat-resistant cord is a nice touch though I didn't buy for it specifically. The hard cover case is great for transport.
    Cons: While the in-line controls are great, they don't work with many of the electronics I have used these earphones with. The play/pause works for most items, but I have yet to find anything that can utilize the volume up/down buttons. My iPod classic can't recognize any of the buttons, so check their compatibility if that is a major selling point for you. Since I use these most often with a laptop playing web-based players like YouTube/Pandora etc, the controls are not useful for me. The rubber cord cover at the top also makes the cord keep its curved shape, for better or worse. On mine, one cord is perfectly shaped to follow the curve to route behind my ear properly, while the other one is way too high of a curve and barely touches the very top of my ear. This makes it very annoying if I am exercising and using these headphones - the one side will flop around on the front side of my ear.
    Other Comments: These were a great purchase at a discount price. I do prefer the greater bass presence than my previous pairs but some may consider this "boomy" as I have read elsewhere. It may just be me, but it feels like I really have to cram them into the travel case. For this reason, I guess it is a good thing the cords keep their curved shape well.

    Pros: Great sound. Good bass. Good highs. Well made. Large variety of ear insert sizes.
    Cons: None yet
    Other Comments: I have had many other ear buds and these are hands down the best I have had. Destroys the power beats I have and is every bit as good as the tours I had but better for working out with. Very happy I tried these.

    Pros:
    Cons:
    Other Comments: Don't think they're worth $80. Sound is no better than buds at 20% of that. Gave em to my son as a birthday present and haven't seen him switch from his cheaper ones.Expensive reminder that just because you pay more,you don't always get a better product

    3 out of 5 stars   Above average product, doesn''t fit well though
    By BTL (Boston, MA) April 27, 2014
    Review submitted for Westone Adventure Series ALPHA High Performance Cross-Over In-Ear Earphones (WST78400)
    Verified Reviewer
    Pros: Decent construction, better than average. Sound quality pretty good, not much bass, but well balanced. Interesting concept having waterproof cords, although haven't fully tested that aspect.
    Cons: The rubber part that hangs over your ears only works if you have a larger sized head, otherwise, doesn't fit well. Because I'd have to pay return shipping, it wasn't worth it to send it back.
    Other Comments: If you have an above average sized head, these are not recommended.
