Westone, an iconic brand name when it comes to in-ear-monitors, released the Westone 3 in-ear monitor, the world's first true 3-way in-ear monitors. Each bud includes three drivers as well as a proper 3-way crossover, with which low (bass), mid and high (treble) get an armature each. The drivers are mounted in a piggyback fashion that makes them phase-aligned, which could prevent abnormal distortions or reverberations. The set includes as many as 10 kinds of ear-tips that the user can select. These bits of technologies make the Westone 3 a revolutionary product in its category. The Westone 3 has reached retail channels, and comes at a MSRP of US $399. Press Release follows: Westone Music Products is proud to announce the release of the Westone 3 on November 28, 2008.
