The 21st Century is redefining the way we listen and appreciate music. We spend more time listening through headphones or earphones than from speakers. Yet, speakers often have multiple drivers whereas headphones usually have only one. Is there a sonic loss? Most headphones have frequency responses spanning from below 20Hz to more than 20,000Hz. Best human hearing is about 30Hz to 19,000Hz if you’re a typical young adult. Westone develops the 4R and doesn’t push frequency specs.
Westone 4R doesn’t have to. It employs a balanced armature technology that allows it to emulate a 3-way 4-driver speaker system – as an earphone!
Frequency response can often be misleading. It’s not the attainable frequencies that count. It’s about the accuracy and precise way music is delivered to your ear. Speaker technology has been aware that large speakers are better at lows, another speaker is for midrange, and a tiny speaker promotes definitive highs. How can earphone achieve this? Virtually all earphones only have one driver. The Westone 4R earphone has four drivers through its exclusive armature technology. Add a 3-way crossover, earphone sound experience elevates to a higher plane. Shift from the common to the rare.
The Westone 4R brings four symmetrically balanced armature drivers engineered into an advanced three-way crossover network to deliver radical clarity, realism and imaging for your listening pleasure. It definitely sets a new benchmark for the most discernible audiophile. It is ideal for active individuals that don’t want to compromise comfort and superb audio quality.
When you’re at this price bracket for earphones, dollars paid don’t necessarily define satisfaction. Go for the technology and sound delivery system. The Westone 4R is an earphone that finally captures the broad, fine sound of large, floor-standing speakers and takes it directly to your ear. The best of 20th Century speaker technology moves directly to your ear at the 21st Century. It’s something to really consider.
