Colorado Springs, Colorado (PRWEB) April 29, 2014
Westone announced today that their newest custom in-ear monitor (IEM), the Elite Series ES60, is now available by special order through authorized audiologists and dealers. The ES60 high performance in-earphones are designed for music professionals and audiophiles and feature Westone’s legendary Custom-Fit technology, providing the musician with earpieces that are cast, sculpted and finished by hand from impressions of the individual’s ears. This precise customization provides the world’s most accurate and comfortable fit and the best acoustic seal possible, resulting in the best audio performance of any in-ear monitor on the market.
The ES60 is handcrafted with six balanced armature drivers in each earphone and a multistage crossover design that yields unrivaled sonic purity. Westone's Dual Bore technology allows for the IEM's high and low frequency sound components to be channeled through separate passages in the sound port and sum within the user's ear canal instead of the earpiece. This approach results in a more convincing and transparent transition between frequency ranges.
The ES60 is the ultimate custom in-ear monitor and shares many of the same internal components as the W60, the Westone audiophile earphone that was named Digital Trends’ CES 2014 “Best in Show” headphone winner. Other notable features of the ES60 include a two material approach to the monitor design consisting of a flex canal, a body temperature-reactive, semisoft earpiece canal additive that offers the user increased comfort and acoustic seal for incredible noise isolation. The cold-pour acrylic earpiece housing provides increased durability and enclosure stability.
Unique custom ES60 options range from real abalone shell to sleek carbon fiber faceplates. Additional materials for the ES60 in-ear monitors include exotic woods, laser engraving, custom art and additional carbon fiber selections. The ES60 faceplates can be customized at http://www.westoneaudio.com with thousands of new colors, materials and design combinations. Each ES60 is meticulously handcrafted over a period of 7 – 10 days by a team of artisans and expert technicians at Westone Laboratories in Colorado Springs, CO. Westone combines 55 years of experience with in-ear applications that yield a low-profile, lightweight, universal earpiece which delivers maximum comfort and in-ear coupling for dynamic music monitoring.
Each E-Series in-ear monitor is supplied with Westone's robust EPIC cable constructed of bifurcated, high-flex, ultra-low resistance tinsel wire, reinforced with a special aramid fiber. The new EPIC cable is removable and attached to the IEM by a single connector allowing for use with other premium cables from Westone.
