Premium In-Ear Monitors

Westone W60 In-Ear Monitors

The Westone W60 audiophile grade in-ear monitors are designed for an extremely comfortable fit to go along with the outstanding sound quality Westone has become synonymous with. The W60 monitors, a Digital Trends Best of CES award winner, are a direct result of Westone's 50+ years of experience producing in-ear headphone applications. Incredibly light weight, you'll be able to wear these headphones for hours on end without the slightest hint of discomfort. To drive the incredible sound experience, the W60's feature a six balanced armature driver system that works in conjunction with an incredibly sophisticated 3-way crossover network. This combination of multiple drivers and the crossover network allow the monitors to produce enhanced sonic detail and a frequency range that extends well beyond your average in-ear headphone.

Headphone Amplifier Specifications

Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC)

Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the amplifier will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
10 - 20,000 Hz
Input Connection
This is the manner in which the headphone amplifiers receive an input audio signal.
Output Connection
This is the manner in which the headphone amplifier will output the audio signal.
3.5mm Mini-Jack
Number of Outputs
Some headphone amplifiers have a built-in splitter so multiple pairs of headphones can be connected to it. The number specified here is the number of headphones that can be connected to the amplifier.
