The Westone 3 is the first and only (as of November 2009) true 3-way triple driver earphones designed specifically for personal listening. Inside each one of the Westone 3 earpieces there are 3 balanced armature drivers. Similar to the Shure SE530 and Ultimate Ears Triple-fi, except that the Shure and the UE models have a 2-way crossover configuration with 2 identical drivers for mids and highs and 1 driver to handle the low frequency.
Westone 3 Configuration:
- Driver I: Highs
- Driver II: Mids
- Driver III: Lows
This allows for a better frequency distribution much like your home stereo speaker. These balanced armature drivers do not move air like most inexpensive dynamic drivers such as the ones that come with the Apple iPod. Because balanced armature drivers don’t move air, you need a perfect fit in order to get the bass. This is true for all high-end in-ear earphones with balanced armature drivers. The reward of this type of driver is a much more immerse experience. It’s much like the music is playing inside your head, instead of coming from left and right. It also takes you somewhere else so these make a great option for meditation, yoga, flying, commuting and ay other situations where you don’t need or don’t want to interact with the outside world. Westone 3 is the first True 3-Way 3-Driver universal fit earphones. The Westone 3's crossover splits the frequency range in 3 and sends to the 3 distinct drivers housed inside each of the Westone 3 earpiece casing.
Hear your music, movies and games like never before. The Westone 3 is the first true universal fit three-way earphone designed for personal listening. Its balanced armature drivers and three-way crossover network add incredible realism and punch to your listening experiences. The 3’s ergonomic fit provides unmatched comfort, outstanding sound isolation, and accurate reproduction that will satisfy the most demanding listener.
