Our take on the Westone W60 Signature Series by Crutchfield's Jeff Miller
Top-of-the-line in-ear 'phones from Westone
Westone's decades of experience designing in-ear headphones are on display with their flagship W Series model, the W60s. In an impressive design feat, they've managed to pack six balanced-armature drivers into each tiny earbud— two each for the lows, mids, and highs.The W60s deliver even better detail, clarity, and bass response than other well-regarded models in the Westone lineup, for powerful yet balanced sound that has earned rave reviews among headphone fanatics and avid music listeners.
A total of six balanced-armature drivers fit inside each of the W60's tiny earbuds (pictured in metallic red, detached from the cable).
Professional-grade noise isolation
For serious music listening, it's nice to be able to shut out all distractions. Just as Westone's professional monitors isolate sound so live musicians can concentrate on their performances, their W series earbuds help reduce external noise around you.
With ten sets of included eartips — five foam and five silicone — you should be able to find a comfortable, secure fit that can block out up to 25dB of external noise. A tight seal also helps you get the clearest sound.
Two detachable cables and removable faceplates
You get two wrap-around-the-ear cables with the W60. One is braided and extra-durable. The other includes a rubberized three-button remote that gives you convenient iPhone® control. A built-in microphone also lets you take calls. Three sets of interchangeable metallic faceplates let you change up the style whenever you feel like it.

Overview: The Westone W60 Signature Series in-ear headphones are built using the same advanced technology as the iconic ES series. The W60s deliver clear detailed sound from the premier Six Driver System design. Ten pairs of ear tips in assorted sizes and materials provide maximum comfort for all-day wear. In addition, you get two interchangeable cables, including one with an in-line remote/microphone for music and phone call control.
Six Driver System: The W60s are equipped with a Six Driver System, consisting of 6 balanced armature drivers with a 3-way crossover network, for unprecedented sound. The W60s feature dual drivers for the high frequencies, midrange, and bass. These super-efficient in-ear headphones (117dB sensitivity) deliver more power and control than traditional dynamic drivers. Because the drivers are smaller, the ear buds fit snugly into your ear for comfort and in-ear coupling for best sound quality.
Two Cables: The W60 comes with a 55" MFI G2 cable with a 3-button remote control and microphone. The remote is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch for volume, tracking, phone answer/end, and Siri activation. Some functionality with other smartphones is possible. In addition, a 50" braided EPIC cable is included. The EPIC cable is made of bifurcated, high-flex, ultra-low resistance tensile wire, and reinforced with a special aramid fiber. The EPIC cable contains no remote or microphone. The proprietary audiophile connector on the ear buds allows you to easily exchange the cables whenever you like.
True-Fit Technology: Five pairs of patented STAR Silicone Tips and five pairs of True-Fit Foam Tips are included with the headphones. The Up & Over cable routing found on both cables helps keep the ear buds in the proper place and prevents the headphones from falling out. The STAR Silicone Tips and the True-Fit Foam Tips come in five sizes each, ensuring a superior fit and maximum comfort. With a proper fit, these in-ear headphones shut out external sounds, boasting a 25dB passive noise attenuation. For convenience, a wax removal tool is included to keep your ear tips clean and working at top efficiency.
Exchangeable Faceplates: The W60s include three pairs of interchangeable metallic faceplates: gold (installed on the ear buds out of the box), silver, and red. Each faceplate has the W60 logo on one side and the L or R designation to indicate the proper channels. A special tool is required to remove and attach the faceplates, and is included in the box.
Monitor Vault: The Westone W60 in-ear headphones come with a waterproof monitor vault to help store and protect your headphones, tools, and spare ear tips. The case has two loops that enable you to attach it to a backpack strap or belt loop with a carabiner or other device (not included).
