Vu sur headfi, un écouteur à driver dynamique, les photos c'est la boite de transport et la télécommande.

Westone et des drivers dynamiques... ok... fini la guerre des multi drivers à armature? Je m'attendais à un W6.... 8-)

Ils se sont enfin rendus compte que pour écouter de la musique, rien ne vaut un bon transducteur dynamique qu'à une flopée de drivers BA...

Quelques photos des écouteurs et un prix qui serait de 200 USD.

Perso un peu déçu car les écouteurs dans cette gamme de prix ne m’intéressent plus depuis longtemps, même si c'est dans cette fourchette que l'on trouve parfois le meilleur rapport qualité/prix (sans vouloir jouer à l'élitiste).  :/

Mais d'autres pourraient être intéressés...

Terrible cette concurrence dans le haut de gamme universel !!!

Par contre je suis très déçu par le design qui ne se démarque pas de la gamme inférieure, en tout cas la personnalisation arrive petit à petit et ça c'est une bonne chose :)

Je préfère le design des W4 W3... La série W*0 a un design un peu chinois à mon avis...
