What customers say about "Key Specs"
Westone W40 Quad-Driver True-Fit Earphones with 3 Button MFi Cable with Microphone and MMCX Audio Cable
  • VERY clear and detailed. Very comfortable. Not as "bassy" / muddy as the Sure 8's yet still pack a punch.
  • Secure fit does wonders for sound. Might be reason for quality sound. Worth the price...can't answer. Just hope durability is there.
  • I've never used anything like this before, but I was impressed at the comfort and noise isolation this model offered.
  • The foam ear tips that come with the set, are very isolating, so they are very suitable for air travel.
  • It fits really good. But sounds was not that good than what I expected.
