I still switch back between the PRO 50s and the W4Rs as a sanity check. They're both good in their own ways, but the PRO 50s are way more comfortable.
Well, whether is was burn-in or my ears/head becoming less messed up, my UM Pro 50's appeared to have evened out. It really did take about 3 weeks for burn-in if that's what fixed it. I am liking the sound now. I guess I won't return it anymore. If there is a problem later, I can take advantage of the warranty. I should be back in the USA next year.
If I decide to keep my Pro 50's a little longer, I don't think I want to keep on listening to them. If anything, I guess I'll burn them in by playing them through my Fiio X3 while I sleep.   If I end up getting a different IEM, I might get the overpriced Shure IEMs instead of the W60...
Hmmmm...I find that I'm not liking the Pro 50's as much as I wanted to. Besides the issue I described, it seems that oomph it provides is a bit much. My Westone 4R's seem like an overall much safer option that works with all genres. I listen to a variety of music so I really don't like to constantly switch out IEM's.    Someone suggested to just get the W60. I might do that...but I need to mentally convince myself that it's a good idea first.
I just visited the Lotte Mall at Jamsil (Seoul), South Korea. There were a lot of headphones and IEMs in their electronics store. They had a bunch of Westone IEMs, along with Beyerdynamic and Sennheiser headphones. I was pleasantly surprised. Granted, buying online is a cheaper option, but at least the gear is getting some exposure here.
I think I need to just have some people other people listen to my IEMs to verify whether or not I am going insane. It would be a nice if I knew any audiophiles here, particularly someone who has actually tried the UM Pro 50's.   I think the sound is starting to even out now, but maybe that's my confused brain. I will give them a few more days before I seriously start to return them. 
There were no obstructions. I bought it new....   Anyway, I tried burning it over night. I _think_ the left side is getting better, but it might just be wishful thinking. An imbalance is still there. It's a shame since I have the Westone 2 and Westone 4R, but I have not experienced this before. Going back to the 4R doesn't feel right anymore because it lacks the "oomph" that the Pro 50's seem to have...at least out of the right side. It makes me all kinds of paranoid...
It doesn't appear to be helping. Like I said, I tried switching the channels so I removed and re-connected both the left and right pieces. I have not had an issue with the right side yet. It's a shame because judging by the right side's sound, I'm liking it more than the 4R. If only I could get the left side to cooperate...
I just got the UM Pro 50's and unfortunately, I'm disappointed so far. I have Westone 4R and was looking for something different, but still an overall upgrade. The problem I am seeming to have is...the left driver seems to be lower in volume and lacking detail. I thought it was the wiring or my connection to my Fiio X3, but crossing the channels results in the same thing. It's really weird when the right side sounds detailed and the left side sounds like crummy stock...
I have been on a university exchange program since August. Because of that, my desktop has been locked away in my aunt's garage for a while. I have a laptop which is fine for getting homework done, but things aren't the same.   I miss my desktop. The fiber optic internet at the school here is 1 Gbps, but my laptop chokes at 650 Mbps/500 Mbps. How am I going to tap into that few hundred Mbps that I don't need?
