Headphone Design

Headphone Type

Headphone type refers to the construction of the headphones.

Around the Ear means that the headphones wrap around the ear to provide a secure fit. This is most often seen in active and sports headphones.

Around the Neck means that the headphones wrap around the neck. This is also seen in active and sports headphones.

Earbuds means that the right and left sides of the headphones are separated and will fit securely into the ear. These are small, compact, and user friendly.

Over the Head headphones mean that the right and left speakers are connected with a support that goes over the head and rests on top. This is the typical headphone type.

Earbuds
Earpiece Design

This is the design of the earpieces on the headphones. Some headphones go inside the ear, while others rest on the outside of the ear. This helps you know exactly what type of headphones you will be receiving.

In-Ear: The ear buds go into the ear. Most often, the right and left ear buds are two separate pieces.

Enclosed-Ear: Usually are found on the larger headphones. They rest on top of the ear and have padding for comfort, as well as enclosing the ear to the speaker. This type of headphone helps to filter out surrounding noise.

On-Ear: This type of headphone involves the speaker sitting gently on the ear without going in the ear or sealing it off.

General Features

Noise-Canceling
Noise Reduction technology removes unwanted noise from a signal. Background or ambient noise can be removed to produce clearer speech and enhanced hearing. Typically these Active Noise Canceling (ANC) headphones are powered and use batteries to activate the noise canceling technology. Also referred to as Noise Reduction or Noise Cancellation.
No
Headphone Connection
This is how the headphones connect to the audio source.

Corded means that the headphones use a cord to transfer the audio signal.

Wireless means that the audio signal is transmitted wirelessly to the headphones.

Corded
1/4" Stereo Jack Adapter
Some headphones will come with a 1/4" stereo jack adapter to connect the usual 3.5mm jack to a 1/4" stereo plug.

1/4" Stereo jack is a larger audio jack that select electronics have.

Yes
Volume Adjustment
Volume Adjustment means that the headphone (independent of the source) can adjust the playback volume. Many headphones and ear buds have in-line volume control, which allows adjusting the audible volume from a switch on the headphones cord. Other headphones have a volume knob on the headphone can.
No
Built-In Microphone
This means that the headphones or earbuds have a built-in microphone. This can be a microphone on the cord, built into the headphone, or even a boom microphone. These mics can be used for music devices like iPods, for Smartphones to make and receive calls, or for gaming purposes.
No
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
20 - 16000 Hz
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
114 dB
Impedance
The opposition to electric current, a higher impedance means a higher electrical resistance. This is measured in ohms.
25 ohms
Primary Color
This is the main color of the item.
Smoke

WESTONE UM1 FIT

September 18, 2013

I must have small ear canals as the Westone are too big even after trying all the included ear pieces. They don't seal well and hurt my ear canals. When I can get them to seal they sound ok . Also the cable feels a little thin and flimsy. They were a great deal here and shipping was quick.
Disappointing for me.

Impressed !!

September 17, 2013

After trying various other brands of in ear monitors, I kind of gave up finding one that had great full range sound, were easy to insert in my ears, and the cords didn't break after a few months of use. As a last resort, I bought the Westone UM1 in ear monitors. And I'm happy to say that overall I'm impressed with not only the sound quality, but the construction quality as well. The only issue I have is that they don't seem to fit in my ear canal very well. I've tried all the tips and either they are too fat or too long. The tips I'm using now take a lot of work to get them in deep enough to block out the external noise on stage and to get that deep rich bass sound from my electric guitar. Once I get them in, I hate having to take them out to talk to someone because it takes so much effort to get them seated back in my ears. (This may only be an issue for me. You may not have the same problem.) They are very comfortable once they are in and I've not had any issues with ear fatigue. The sound quality is excellent and the wires to each unit appear sturdy. I get good clear bottom end without a lot of boominess when playing Bass and great clean and distortion sounds on my various guitars. I use these with my church worship team and in my home studio. I've been playing Bass and Guitar for over 40 years. Wish these had been available when I started back in the 70's. The price that I got them for from Sonic Electronix was too good to pass up. I've purchased other items from Sonic Electronix and have been very happy with the price, speed of shipping, and quality of their products. I'd recommend buying the Westone UM1. Especially from these guys.
