Westone UM PRO Series Thread - Page 25

So, TL;DR: if I like the UERM and am after something similar in a universal package, the UM Pro 50 is not it.

You could always get the UM Pro 50 and change the cable with a custom silver one, that should get you more detail

It should be obvious that Westone house sound has never been analytical.

You can consider the Etymotic er4s.

I love etys, but bass :( My headphones are DT770s, so etys will just sound thin after that. I'm using TF10 now which I love, but I keep craving a bigger soundstage and better mids. Been thinking about some PFE232s and the Fostex TE-05.

Have you heard the UERM before? It is no way like the DT770 and TF10.

I have. It was basically exactly how I wanted to hear music. Slightly bright, huge soundstage, well-extended bass with great texture, mids that aren't forward or recessed. It sounded "just right;" when I heard the UE18 demo right after, I was totally unimpressed.

The CK100Pro and TE-05 may be worth a look.

Yeah that's the way I've been leaning.

Has anyone managed to find any compatible custom replacement cables for the UM pro series?

post #370 of 667
Galaxy Plus cable is the most suitable with pro50 so far. It adds perfect highs and mids, while reduce some bass.
post #371 of 667

are those silver plated copper or solid core silver?

post #372 of 667

EarphoneSolutions.com sent out my replacement on Friday; just received it. Everything seems good. No wobble in connection, and no DOA or anything for that matter, so far.

Just ordered UM Pro 50, I hope they are better than LCD-2 V1. I had. I am going after something does not require amp to shine.

So you are comparing  full size cans with in ear, I have nothing against this if you can isolate the soundstage effect. After doing that I find the UM pro 50 to be more towards the HD650 signature and less towards the Audeze signature. I love warmth and musicality provided that the  high still ring long enough to trigger my brain for those details,

 

The LCD 2 is more audiophile compared to the UM Pro 50. but you cant beat a great IEM fit, its feels light, free energetic, and The UM Pro50 adds full sound to that.... you cant beat that.

post #375 of 667

I am not comparing per see, just in general. I do aware what I gain and lose with IEM. That is why I don't want to spend 2K for custom IEM too. LCD-2/3 are not very comfortable and I am moving away from full size setup UNLESS something new in the market can really grab my heart. ;) I intend to use UM Pro 50 for my Mackbook to watch movie or other general use. I found your review was very helpful, thanks.
