Westone’s Mach series are professional calibre earphones for everyone

Westone Audio has detailed their consumer range of wired in-ear monitors, taking their experience from audio engineering, and parlaying them into a series of earphones aimed at the consumer.

Westone Audio claims that Mach series (or MACH Series) is one of the most technologically advanced earphones on the market, leveraging over 35 years of knowledge about in-ear monitors to create what the company refers to as a “one-of-a-kind product focused on delivering sound in its purest form.”
