Westone just introduced their Adventure Series (ADV) Alpha in-ear headphones, designed for the active user looking for exceptional audio performance, fit and design in any environment. The earphones come with a weather resistant travel case, include inline controls for iPhone, and are built with a magnesium unibody.
With IPX-3 water resistance, the Adventure Series earphones are protected against spraying water and adverse conditions for everyday use, rain or shine. Westone’s first-ever Adventure Warning and Control System (AWACS Reflective Cable) allows for improved visibility in low-light conditions with a reflective, replaceable cable along with the MFi (Made for iPhone, iPad, iPod) system with three-button volume control and inline microphone. The earphone is constructed from a magnesium uni-body, which allows for durability and unmatched design performance.
Keeping sound quality a priority, Westone integrated their rich heritage of signature driver technologies into the Adventure Series Alpha. A proprietary extended range 6.5mm micro driver with PST (Precision Surface Tuning), 20Hz -18kHz frequency response, and impedance of 21 ohms, delivers sonic accuracy with extended bass.

- The MFi control allows the listener to rewind, fast-forward, skip songs, play/pause, activate Siri interface and answer/hang-up calls without interruption of the their activity.
