Overview

Our take on the Westone UM Pro30

During a performance, you don't want the crowd focusing on a bulky-looking set of headphones, and you definitely don't want dangling cords getting in your way. Westone gets it. For decades, the Colorado-based company has designed in-ear monitors for professional musicians. With their UM Pro30 earbuds, they've managed to fit three balanced-armature drivers with a passive 3-way crossover into each tiny earpiece. So you get crystal clear sound with fine-tuned stereo separation, and a "barely-there" look.

Sound isolation for live sound

Things get loud on-stage, and it's crucial to be able to focus on your specific instrument or vocal. Westone's decades of experience helped them create the UM series of universal earpieces, which provide terrific noise isolation for live music events and church services. With the ten included eartip options — five foam and five silicone — you should find a comfortable, secure fit that can block out up to 25dB of external noise while providing clear, detailed sound.

Detachable, wrap-around cable

These earbuds may be lightweight, but the included cable is heavy duty. It's a thin yet durable braided cord that detaches from the earpieces. Coil the stiff top part of the cable around your ear for a snug fit. This keeps the cord out of your way as you perform and stops sound from escaping and being picked up by live mics.

Features

Overview: The Westone UM Pro 30 in-ear monitors are built in Colorado Springs, CO for musicians. Equipped with three high-performance balanced-armature drivers and a passive 3-way crossover, the UM Pro 30s deliver clear, detailed sound over a wide frequency range. Ten pairs of ear tips in assorted sizes and materials provide comfort for all-day wear.

Three Balanced Armature Drivers: The UM Pro 30 headphones are equipped with three balanced armature drivers, which provide high performance over the entire frequency range. The passive 3-way crossover is matched to individual low, mid, and high frequency drivers, and provides a smooth and balanced mix. These ultra-efficient in-ear monitors (124dB sensitivity) deliver more power and control than traditional dynamic drivers.

EPIC Cable: The UM Pro 30 has a 50" replaceable braided EPIC cable, made of bifurcated, high-flex, ultra-low resistance tensile wire, and reinforced with a special aramid fiber. The proprietary audiophile connector allows you to easily replace the cable, if necessary.

True-Fit Technology: Five pairs of patented STAR Silicone Tips and five pairs of True-Fit Foam Tips are included with the headphones. The Up & Over cable routing helps keep the ear buds in the proper place and prevents the headphones from falling out. The STAR Silicone Tips and the True-Fit Foam Tips come in five sizes each, ensuring a superior fit and maximum comfort. With a proper fit, these in-ear headphones shut out external sounds, boasting a 25dB passive noise attenuation. For convenience, a wax removal tool is included to keep your ear tips clean and working at top efficiency.

Mini-monitor Vault: The UM Pro 30 in-ear monitors come with a waterproof mini-monitor vault to help store and protect your headphones and spare ear tips. The case has two loops that enable you to attach it to a backpack strap or belt loop with a carabiner or other device (not included).

  • Frequency Response: 20Hz - 18kHz
  • Sensitivity: 124 dB @ 1 mW
  • Impedance: 56Ω
