UM Pro Series
The UM (Universal-fit Monitor) Pro Series was designed for the on-stage musician to isolate specific instruments or vocals, as well as provide hearing protection (25 dB) from extremely loud environments. Using the same concepts as the custom-fit Elite Series, the UMs deliver extraordinary detail and clarity in a compact ergonomic package. The design is based on knowledge gained during the construction of millions of custom-fit earpieces that make the UM Series the most comfortable and best fitting solution of any universal-fit earpiece available.

Today, Westone has expanded its in-ear product line to provide unparalleled sound quality for all on-stage musicians, as well as for casual listeners who want a high-fidelity sound experience.
Established in 1959 as a custom-fit earpiece manufacturer, Westone has become known worldwide as "The In-Ear Experts." From its roots of working with hearing health professionals to produce custom-fit products for hearing aids and protection, Westone has expanded into offering consumer audio products and is the world's premier designer of high performance in-ear musicians' monitors and earphones.
Westone became a master of audio technology as the result of requests from popular rock musicians in the early 1980s. They wanted the ability to hear specific instruments or vocals while on stage yet reduce overall stage volume to protect their hearing. As a solution, Westone created the first balanced armature driver in-ear monitor that became the standard for professional musicians.

They feel great in my ears and I'm not having any bad rubbing or hot spots. I'm giving it a 5 rating because although there are better ones out there, these are 100% what they advertise and are great for me.
Over the past couple of years, I've been using both the Westone UM Pro10s and the Shure SE215s regularly, and I've formed some pretty solid opinions on both.
SOUND: The Westones offer a flat, full-range response with crisp, detailed clarity. The Shures offer the same clarity, but they are brighter... almost bordering on unpleasantly bright. They seem to have a frequency output similar to a smiley-faced graphic EQ. If you like a more natural, flatter frequency response, you'll like the Westones. If you want a touch more bass and treble, you'll like the Shures.
FIT: Right out of the box, the Westones fit my ear like a glove. I was impressed. I can pop them in and out with ease and they stay perfectly snug in my ears. The Shure's came with too large of an earpad, so I put a much smaller set on. That helped, but the Shures, in general, are comparatively clunky to wear... kind of like a 1970's hearing aid. Just turning my head or yawning can cause them to wiggle loose in my ear.
WIRES: The Westones' soft wires easily drape backward behind my ears. The Shures' wires, by comparison, are annoyingly rigid. You can bend them somewhat like a coat hanger, but they're too rigid to unobtrusively tuck behind your ears. Occasionally they may even swivel themselves away from your head. On the plus side, the Shures wires are a little longer, which I like because it allows me to clip my headphone amp to my trap case when I'm drumming.
NOISE REJECTION: Maybe it's because of their bulkier size, but the Shures offer better sound isolation... except for when they wiggle loose, which they do rather often. The Westones stay put, so even though they don't reject as much ambient noise, at least they reject it more consistently.
RELIABILITY: The Shure SE215s win hands down. I've only had to send in my Shures once for warranty repair so far. My Westones have gone in four times already. After only the third or fourth time I used my Westone UM Pro10s, the left monitor fizzled out and died in the middle of a gig. I sent them in for warranty repair. Two months later, the same thing happened in the middle of a song, and once again I sent them in for warranty repair. About a month later, it happened again -- the left monitor slowly fizzled out and died in the middle of a gig. I bought a second pair of UM Pro10's to use as a backup, and I've already had to send them in once for warranty repair.
I don't drive my IEMs loud at all, nor do I use them more than three or four times a month. On stage, I monitor just lead instruments (no bass or drums) at a relatively low volume via a Behringer P1 personal monitor amplifier, so I can't imagine there's anything about the way I used the UM Pro10s that contributed to their ongoing failures. They just keep crapping out for no apparent reason.
I give the UM Pro10s the highest marks for design, comfort, and sound, however, they've also earned the distinction of literally being the single most unreliable piece of audio gear I've ever purchased. Judging by the number of positive reviews, I'm guessing that Westone must have inadvertently manufactured a bad batch of these monitors at some point, and I must have been unlucky enough to keep getting warranty replacements from that batch.
Over all it is the best solution I ever tried. It provides a great sound, specially for sports, It sits and hold perfectly in the ears - there are many different ear-tips that are compatible and work great. Finally, it doesn't protrude from the ear lobe, so there is no annoying air turbulence caused by running and wind, if one routes the cables smartly.
IMHO the value cannot be matched or beat until W10 or Bluetooth 5.0 cable adapter gets here.
I use them for listening to the music that I mix, so I need frequency response to be true. The response curve is very close to my reference monitors and my over ear headphones. These give different detail, so they are nice to have to compare - plus I can use them in bed or on a walk.
I have compared them to my friend's Westone 3-driver and these have a flatter response; the bass and treble are not boosted like most consumer headphones. His a better for him; mine are better for me. If you just want them for listening pleasure, you should get a consumer frequency response as it will give a more pleasing sound with bass and bright detail. Of course you could just change the response curve with an EQ in your app and get the same effect.
If you're a price-conscious particular audiophile (oxymoron or audio-moron) looking for true sound at an affordable price, these are fantastic - nice and clear.
Minus one star because there is a square edge molded in that rubs my left ear - my ears must be different because both earpieces are the same. This was easy to round off with a nail file. So, now they fit well. They are low profile enough and comfortable enough for me to sleep in ear down on the pillow. However peoples ears are very different, so I don't know if you could sleep in them or not.
