How many times have you contemplated purchasing Weston IEMs, but found the price point just a little out of reach? Well, the self-proclaimed “in-ear experts” have a solution for you. Meet Westone UM1.

New Release Westone UM1, Redesigned For You

Twenty years ago, the Colorado-based company released the world’s first ever high-performance IEM and will soon release a very affordable model for budgeting audiophiles.

The UM1 has been redesigned from the inside out. The new IEM is a universal fit in-ear solution featuring a single specially engineered balanced-armature driver. Like that of the UM Pro series, the UM1 is built with a MMCX connection, though the overhaul has modified the detachable cable for a rounded connector that ensures a secure and reliable connection every time. The Westone UM1 will also include both memory foam and silicone ear tips for users to find a better fit.

The IEM itself is ergonomically-shaped for a comfortable fit even during long listening sessions.

“The new UM1 is a professional grade, high-quality in-ear monitor that will satisfy the demanding needs of the musician, as well as those of the music lover at a price everyone can afford.” Blake Gaiser, Director of Product and Marketing at Westone explains. “Available for just $99.99 USD, the UM1 offers the most detailed and precise sound in its class while maintaining the same quality and performance that Westone customers come to expect. No other product at this price point compares with the UM1 in terms of the highly engineered balanced armature driver, the removable MMCX Audio cable, warm flat frequency response and ergonomic design.”

Westone UM1 will cost $99.99 and officially drop May 16.
