Kool Tools: Westone ES60 in-ear monitor for musicians
Westone's Elite Series ES60 is the newest in-ear monitor in the Elite Series of high performance earphones designed by musicians specifically for music professionals and audiophiles. It boasts Westone’s custom True-Fit technology, providing the musician with earpieces that are cast, sculpted and polished by hand from actual impressions of the individual’s ears.
The ES60 is handcrafted with six balanced armature drivers in each earphone and a multistage crossover design that yields impressive 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.
Other notable features of the ES60 custom in-ear monitor 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 monitor faceplates include exotic woods, laser engraving and additional carbon fiber selections. The Elite Series faceplates can be customized with thousands of new colors, materials and design combinations through Westone's online Customizer.
The ES60 is available at a base manufacturer's suggested retail price of US$1,299.99 (price varies based on custom materials and configurations selected) through authorized dealers and e-retailers. A portion of sales of the ES60 will be donated to Hearing Health Foundation as part of Westone’s ongoing support of music, hearing protection and research. For more info go to http://www.westone.com .
