Westone UM1 review (redux)

10 April 2013
  • Summary: I heartily gave my recommendation of the Westone UM1 a year ago, and flash forward to today, I still think it’s one of the best music headphones in my collection. The new color variants and cheaper price serves to make the UM1 even more attractive to music aficionados. Do yourself a favor and get yourself a pair, this one’s definitely a keeper.

Westone UM1 Earphones

20 January 2008
  • Summary: There is no doubt about it, the Westone UM1s are a great pair of earphones for the price. With an estimated retail price of only $109 these headphones are well suited to take on the competition in this price segment. Their balanced warm sound signature will be appealing to the majority of listeners. The UM1's bass performance is on par with most of the in-ears in its price tier and with a good midrange they are well worth the price of about $109.
  • Pros: Excellent fit, Superb comfort, Balanced mids, 50" cable, Copes well with micro phonics, Well suited sound signature for most music genres, Open sound, Bang for the buck, Detailed sound, Barely enough bass for most music types
  • Cons: Bass extension, Amount of bass, Treble detail

  • Summary: A decent IEM choice, but we’d recommend the Etymotic or Shure entry level models over the UM1 if you’re looking in this price bracket.
  • Pros: Above average sound
  • Cons: Doesn’t really keep pace with the competition

Expert Review

8 November 2006
  • Conclusion: First of all, these two Earphones produce vastly different, yet similar quality sound. There is no question that the UM2's produced consistently richer, fuller, more pronounced, cleaner sound with incredibly deep bass in every category tested. We have to remember the different price points of these two units.
  • Pros: Beautiful sound, comfortable, incredible sound isolation
  • Cons: Expensive (UM2's)
