From the manufacturer
The 'W' Series is specifically designed for optimized personal listening, because Westone believes that music lovers should hear what the artist and producer intended when they listen to an artist's recording. Each W Series earphone contains from one to eight drivers, depending on the model, for the absolute best sensory listening experience imaginable. The patented ear tips use an ergonomic design incorporating lessons learned on fit and design gathered over the last five decades of manufacturing millions of products for the human ear. Along with providing extreme comfort, the ear tips isolate ambient noise to provide the utmost clarity.
Choose From W10, W20, W30 or W40
Using a unique single balanced armature driver, the W10 is a universal-fit in-ear monitor that is tuned specifically for listening to mastered, recorded music. It is a great first-level option and a perfect upgrade to unlock the potential of your music device. The W10 uses the same advanced technology found in Westone's iconic ES Series and delivers extraordinary detail.
A true dual-driver in-ear monitor tuned for listening to mastered, recorded music, the W20 is the world's smallest dual driver design. A separate bass and high frequency balanced armature drivers enhance your listening experience with incredible detail and dynamics.
With a triple driver design, the W30 uses separate bass, mid-range and high frequency balanced armature drivers in conjunction with an advanced 3-way crossover for a truly awesome personal listening experience. Based on the W3, the world's first universal-fit 3-way, 3-driver earpiece, the W30 has been redesigned to provide extraordinary quality sound and exceptional comfort from our silicone or foam ear tips.
The Westone W40 Quad-Driver in-ear headphone will take your listening experience to an entirely new level. Four balanced armature drivers and a 3-way crossover network deliver breathtaking clarity and realism. Westone's ear tip technology provides superior ergonomics and comfort. Westone's 50+ years of 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. Westone's balanced armature drivers are significantly more compact and efficient than traditional dynamic drivers. By combining multiple balanced armature drivers with sophisticated crossover networks, Westone earphones provide enhanced sonic detail and a frequency range that extends well beyond typical in-ear solutions.

Today, Westone has expanded its in-ear product line to provide unparalleled sound quality for all on-stage musicians, as well as for casual listeners who want a high-fidelity sound experience.
Established in 1959 as a custom-fit earpiece manufacturer, Westone has become known worldwide as 'The In-Ear Experts.' From its roots of working with hearing health professionals to produce custom-fit products for hearing aids and protection, Westone has expanded into offering consumer audio products and is the world's premier designer of high performance in-ear musicians' monitors and earphones.
Westone became a master of audio technology as the result of requests from popular rock musicians in the early 1990s. They wanted the ability to hear specific instruments or vocals while on stage yet reduce overall stage volume to protect their hearing. As a solution, Westone created the first balanced armature driver in-ear monitor that became the standard for professional musicians.

The Quad-Driver Westone W40 in-ear headphone will take your listening experience to an entirely new level. Four balanced armature drivers and a three-way crossover network deliver breathtaking clarity and realism. Westone’s True-Fit technology provides superior ergonomics and comfort. Westone's 50+ years of 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. A replaceable cable connection includes the braided EPIC cable and round MFi cable with 3-button Apple Control System and mic function, including volume +/- , tracking +/- , phone answer, and Siri activation. Westone's balanced armature drivers are significantly more compact and efficient than traditional dynamic drivers. By combining multiple balanced armature drivers with sophisticated crossover networks, Westone earphones provide enhanced sonic detail and a frequency range that extends well beyond typical in-ear solutions. Exchangeable black, blue and red color faceplates are included with secure attachment. Each set of W40 earphones comes with an EPIC replaceable cable and MFi G2 cable, premium comfort tips, mini-monitor vault, cleaning tool, and 2-year warranty. The Mini Monitor Vault is constructed of a high-impact polymer and is the perfect size for travel and storage. It features a protective foam interior and weather resistant design. The Westone W40s are ideal for classic and hard rock, heavy metal, alternative, classical, vocal, jazz, and acoustic music, delivering stunning audio in a quad-driver design. Make sure you try all the eartips provided to find the correct fit and comfort for you. If the eartip is too small and doesn’t create a complete seal inside your ear canal you will lose low end frequencies. Choose the largest tip that is still comfortable for you. You may even need a different size tip for each ear. Make sure the right earpiece is worn on the right ear and the left earpiece on the left ear. The earpieces are marked, and when worn the cable should point to your front and wrap around to the back of your ear.

This review is strictly based on my opinion and tastes in sound and music. I am 53 years old and have lost the ability (happens as you get older) to hear certain hi frequencies, that those of you who are a fair bit younger can still hear and enjoy. The point being that I may not be overly affected by what some describe as high frequency screechiness or sibilance ( I prefer clear detailed highs, mids and lows in their natural form to overpowered low detailed highs and muddy thumping bass).
Tested on iPad, with and without Oppo h2 Dac and Chord Mojo also on AV receiver.
Each unit was left to burn in 24/7 for seven days and listened to before and after. The Fostex, Beyerdynamics, Sennheisers and HIFIMAN became smoother, warmer and IMO more enjoyable after the burn in. The other units mentioned did not seem to change radically or become any more enjoyable.
I have had the following headphones and returned them over the last 4 months ( some tested for 2 weeks, others for almost a month with music from techno, rock, pop and all the way to classical and opera (also used a audio reference cd for more comparisons).
Sennheiser 598( good sound but feel like cheap plastic and ear cups are shallow) - Shure 1540 ( smooth sound, wide soundstage fore closed back and very comfortable sent the back when the Fostex arrived) - Beyerdynamics 990 pro 250 Ohm( most comfortable earpads of all and close in sound to the t90) - master & dynamic M40 ( very nice build and sound, but earpads are to narrow and have a high clamping force) - Blue Lola ( sound ok but heavy and awkward) - Audio Technica M50 and Vmoda 100 ( both ok for the price, just not in the same league as the keepers).
Fostex TH900 ( my favourite of all for sound, looks and comfort)
Hifiman 400i ( wide soundstage, great sound and comfort) - Oppo pm3 ( great all-around sound and comfort also can't get them out of my wife's hands) - Beyerdynamic t90(crisp, clear, detailed and comfortable) - Bowers and Wilkins P7 ( awesome build quality, fantastic sound - a little on the smaller side in earpads).
These 2 have very positive reviews across the web and I really can't add anything significant to what has already been said.
IEMs - Westone W40 - great comfort with a ton of tips to choose from. Sound is clear and detailed and they are so comfortable that you forget they are in your ears.
Shure SE846 - a noticeable step above the W40s in build quality and sound.extremely well regarded across the web for these
Sound is detailed, clear and solid. They come with three different types of exchangeable tubes so that you can adjust for bright, neutral or more bassy sound. I wasn't as fond of the ear tips that came with these but end up using the silicon 12mm from the Westones thus solving the comfort issue. After testing, I went back to the neutral tubes and have enjoyed these ever since.
Sent from my iPad
The separate drivers and crossovers really cleans up the audio quality. Noticed a big difference on the mids and highs, so much cleaner with less distortion, the acoustic guitar sounded great, and the cymbals on the electric drum kit sounded MUCH better. Improved bass response compared to the UW10, but for me I wouldn't mind a bit more on the low end. Being a drummer I really want to hear my kick drum, but that's a personal preference. I can get plenty of volume without getting too distorted even while playing my acoustic drums, and the isolation is so good I can hardly hear my very loud acoustic kit. This has helped make my practice sessions much more productive by being able to actually hear the songs I'm playing along with.
Overall this is a good buy if you're in the market for some quality IEMs. Great isolation, clean balanced audio, and it comes with many in-ear tips to ensure a solid and comfortable fit. If you're considering a single driver model and looking for quality audio reproduction, I highly recommend stepping up to something with multiple drivers like this.
