Westone 4R In-ear Headphone Sweepstakes

Register to win a set of Westone 4R In-ear Headphones (MSRP $599.99) we are giving away.

According to the company:

The Quad-Driver Westone 4R-Series with durable and removable EPIC cable take your listening experience to an entirely different level. Four symmetrically balanced armature drivers engineered into an advanced three-way crossover network deliver breathtaking clarity, realism, and imaging. Left and right earpiece responses are tested by each driver pack and matched to an extraordinarily tight +/- 2dB tolerance, delivering unparalleled balance and accuracy of sound-stage reproduction.

The 4Rs are made for high-performance listening through personal audio devices such as an iPod, media player, computer, game console, and headphone amplifier. 50+ years experience with in-ear applications has yielded a low-profile, lightweight, universal earpiece which delivers maximum comfort and in-ear coupling for dynamic transfer of sound.

4R-Series earphones ship with Westone’s new Monitor Vault. Designed specifically for transporting high-end earphones and manufactured in Colorado of a high-impact polymer, it’s the perfect size for travel and storage. Each Monitor Vault features a protective foam interior and weather resistant design.

actually westone 4R is not my 1st choice, but it's just fit my limited budget and would be better than XBA-40 that i am using, i would like to get a pair to work with my AK100.

As long as they're not the fall-out-of-my-ears-when-I-look-the-wrong-way kind of earbuds, which are every pair I've ever owned, so far.

Shike's picture

This would definitely help with the long workdays.


Thanks for the sweepstakes!

The huckster's picture

Once you are north of the $250 range, it's almost a sin to possess incredible sounding headphones, because you can't share the listening joy with your friends at the same time...

*Note: the word almost is used above*

WAF Warrior's picture
