Overview

Westone UM PRO 50 Signature Series 5-Driver Earphones

Listening to the UM PRO 50 is pure bliss. Joss Stone plays wonderfully. It outputs a velvety sound that doesn't offend your ears.

Hello all, Flavio here. The sound signature of the UM series has a warm, big bottom and are the first earphones I now grab for long hours of listening. If I'm going on a trip or anything that will take more than 3 hours of listening, the UM PRO 50 is now my first choice. They are non-fatiguing, exceptional sounding earphones that play amazingly straight our of my iPhone. Definitely my favorite earphones for long sessions. About the Westone cables: the cables are the most comfortable cables we have ever tested. Note that the UM series comes witih the "UM" cables which are slightly different than the "W" cables. The soft arch behind the ear is very easy on the skin and they are not like the other forming wires used by the legacy W4R for example or the Shure SE series. They are trully the most comfortable to wear specially on those long overnight flights. 10-12 hours with the UM PRO 50 = NO PROBLEM!

The new UM PRO 50 Signature is the top-of-the-line in-ear earphones made by Westone for musicians and audiophiles. It features a 3-way crossover with 5 balanced armature drivers per earpiece. You can read an article written by Victor with the Comparison of Shure SE846 vs Westone UM PRO 50.

    Westone UM PRO 50 Signature Series 5-Driver Earphones Review by Earphone Solutions

    UM PRO 50 vs W60 by Steve from Algonquin, IL

    The UM PRO 50 has 5 drivers and Westone artfully uses all of of them. These offer a rich sound signature; plenty of bass - not boomy, not overwhelming but velvety and detailed. The mids come with a clarity that is borderline scary - you will notice the singer's voice like never before.

    The highs are in the right place and make for a very pleasant experience. It will be hard to find earphones more comfortable than these; they offer a flush fit and at times you will forget these are actually connected to cables. The Star Tips did a great job isolating and providing great seal; its soft silicone is plenty moldable and pliable.

    We recently stepped up to these "Westone UM PRO 50 Signature Series 5-Driver Earphones". We have been using various other earphones for our in-ear monitor system but wanted a more balanced sound and a better bass response. These do it all - the bass is really great and the overall sound is very true to what we expect to hear. We are playing strictly acoustic music through some very high quality mics & the Pro 50s sound very natural & smooth. All the instruments & vocals seem to have their own place in the mix. Everyone loves them & our double bass player is especially happy now!

    Great sound in a small and comfortable package! These have become my daily drivers. I have used Westone UM-2, Pro-20, Pro-30, W-60 before settling in on these Pro-50s. I must also be transparent and say I have used a pair of Shure 846's as a reference point. Although I absolutely love the 846's, for me the Pro-50's are a better overall balance of price/performance/comfort. Compared to the 846 I have found that with the exception of using the IEM's as a drummer or bass player, the Pro-50 is a clear winner. There is a significant difference between the Pro-20 and Pro-30. The jump to the Pro-50 was more subtle, but brought a greater balance and full sound. Small form factor is great for smaller ears - whether they belong to guys or gals. ES - Great partner in the evaluation and purchasing process. Thanks for your advice and coaching - you were spot on!

    I have auditioned a LOT of headphones and IEMs over the years. With most of the products I was usually disappointed by too much or too little bass, overly bright upper frequencies, small soundstage, etc. So, a few years ago I decided to try some IEMs made by people who actually design and manufacture hearing aids. I thought, "If they make hearing devices for the hearing impaired, they must make great IEM's." I was right. My Westone UM-2's were fantastic. I loved the natural sound, and I discovered that I could sit and listen to them all day without fatigue. During a recent trip out of town, I listened to my UM-2's quite a bit. I still loved the sound, but I wanted a little more definition and depth. After doing a little research on the Westone and Earphone Solutions web sites, I decided to fork over the coin for the UM Pro 50's. I'm very glad I did. The Pro 50's add depth and width to the soundstage I'm used to (from the UM-2's), along with greater definition and bass punch. Instruments and voices have greater separation. And the top end is smooth as silk. I can wear them all day in total comfort, thanks to the unique Star earpieces. I feel completely relaxed during my listening sessions. I have found my musical home! I will mention a couple of caveats. First (and foremost), proper fit is critical. The IEM MUST seat properly in the ear in order for you to experience the most that it has to offer. Make sure you pick the proper size and material for maximum comfort. Also, I use an outboard Oppo HA-2 DAC/headphone amp with the Pro 50's. Although the headphones sound great on their own (using iPhone, iPad, computer, etc.), the Oppo smooths and defines the sound even more. I recommend an outboard headphone amp in order to get the most out of these phones. Bottom line: if you are planning on spending up to $1K on headphones, and you like smooth, well-defined and spacious sound, look no further than the UM Pro 50's. Forget the big, ridiculous, heavy, over-the-ear phones, and treat your head to true audiophile sound!

    Summary
    The UM Pro 50s offer the best quality I have heard

    I've experienced near top-end earphones from both Shure and Westone over time and landed on the latter due purely to their enhanced comfort. For personal reasons I decided a few weeks ago it was time to upgrade to a top-end product and having shared my requirements and thoughts with Earphone Solutions, took their advice on the different options they proposed for my consideration.

    I took delivery of the Westone UM Pro 50s some 5 weeks ago and have been using them constantly since. First-off the comfort is right there as with other Westone products I've had and using these earphones for continued period (several hours) is not an issue at all. Years ago (again Earphone Solutions advice) I adopted a cut-down version of the triple flange which allows a perfect, snug fit into my ear and have used the same approach with the UM50s. Works very well for me.

    In terms of sound the UM50s offer the best quality I have heard from an in-ear, or over-ear product. Music that you've heard countless times previously takes on a new quality. Somehow the sound feel deeper, with more meaning and real resonance it forces you to listen in a more focused way.

    I'm unable to articulate if this is because the bass is deeper, the treble greater or something at the top end. Who knows? I honestly have no idea!

    All I know is that music is delivered into both ears in the most beautiful way imaginable. Because you listen to each song on a new way the experience is enriched and there is a real danger of 'just one more song' syndrome where time is easily lost as I've experienced more than once! I'm sure the UM50s deliver music as absolutely intended by the writer, musician, creator.

    I like to crank the volume as much as the next guy but have found that I haven't pursued this so much with the UM50s. I did at first and they deliver brilliantly on that front with very little distortion even at full tilt, but I find myself bringing the level back down more frequently as I pursue listening in a more active and intense way driven by these earphones.

    Would I recommend them? Hell yes! I'd wear 2 pairs at the same time if there was some way to do it. 5 stars from me.

    Couple of final points: the advice from ES was precise, to the point, had clearly heard my requirements and really helpful to me. I'd recommend you take advantage of real knowledge delivered by people who care very much about their customer.

    Finally - Ok these are not a cheap product. But surely anyone seriously thinking about spending this kind of money on earphones has made that mental leap already?. But they are great value - and having made that initial leap, I encourage anyone to make the 2nd leap too and buy the UM Pro50s. I'd be shocked if anyone was disappointed.

    Best regards,

    Chris Dale

    Yes

    Warm, thick, and romantic sounding earphone (with stock cable) with full bass (I am not a basshead). To me, an after market cable is a must if I want to keep them. They sound more like a LCD-2 version 1. Pros: They are very musical earphones, easy to listen to (never fatiguing), mid range is very forward and tonally correct, the boundary of soundstage is right at the edge of my ears, vocal is centered, there are nice bass attack and mid-bass, treble is there when the music is calling for it, very comfortable and light weight. Cons: Maybe sound too warm and thick for somebody, mid-bass hump with stock cable, may not be the last word of workmanship/quality.

    Would these work for a drummer or bass player? Playing live.

    Tech Support answered:
    Yes, most definitely because they offer a flat frequency response. They provide a well balanced and warm sound signature.
