Mockingbird copy, It's likely Chinese/indonesian made, and would have been marketed through a German company who got rights to the westone name.
There are previous postings about them.

If you're happy with it then great, however if it was sold to you as a matsumoko / Japanese westone then ask for your money back and keep an eye out for a thunder or spectrum - they pop up regularly and can still be had for a reasonable price.

Hi BLP

It is a recent inexpensive Chinese Mockingbird copy and unfortunately has no association with the Matsumoku or indeed the later Korean models dealt with on this site.

I hope that I haven't pissed on your parade!

Yeah I thought the tone was just a bit too gloomy, but I managed to redeem the situation by adding a smiley.

Hoax cheers

That's the great thing about this site. Quick response, and a great crowd with lots of (sometimes) useful tips, and nobody takes them self too seriously. Stick around.
