$449 Earphones Boast Four Driver Design

Paul Lilly

Westone Laboratories recently introduced what it claims is the world's first universal fit earphone with four balanced armature drivers.

"Four balanced armature drivers and a three-way crossover network deliver breathtaking clarity and realism," the company says. "Just as important, we were sure to keep our highest standards of ergonomics and comfort only found in the industry with Westone’s True-Fit technology. The dual bass, single mid and single high frequency driver system is the most dynamic sound available in a universal fit earphone."

The Westone 4 comes rated at:

  • Sensitivity: 118 dB SPL/mW
  • Frequency Response: 10 Hz - 18 kHz
  • Impedance: 31 ohms

Only serious audiophiles with deep pockets need apply. The Westone 4 will sell for $449 when it ships in the first quarter of 2011.
