World's First Four Driver Universal Fit Earphone
Westone Laboratories, Inc. introduced the Westone 4, the world's first four driver balanced armature universal fit in-ear headphone designed specifically for the serious audiophile and music enthusiast.
Pushing the limits of both technology and ergonomics, the Westone 4 uses a four driver balanced armature design with 3-way crossover to achieve breathtaking clarity and realism. The EPIC Cable (Earphone Precision Interconnect Cable) is both durable and guards against microphonics. Westone's exclusive True-Fit technology, based on over 50 years of experience with in-ear applications, results in an earphone that is extremely comfortable, lightweight and compact.
“Developing the first universal four driver product is a statement of our commitment to leading the market with products that are superior in both sound and quality.”
— Lynn Kehler, President & CEO, Westone
“For the audiophile it's pure heaven, gamers will feel like the action is surrounding them, we've even had exceptional feedback from the home and field recording community as an alternative to bulky over-the-ear headphones and difficult to use near field monitors.”
— David Slepak, Manager of Marketing, Westone
