Westone W40 In-Ear Moving Iron Headphones Evaluation

The Weston W40 in-ear headphones are a four-unit moving iron headset that is part of the updated line of Wisdom headsets in 2013. We have previously reviewed the 2013 update of the UM Pro10 and Pro30. Weston. The name of the moving iron headphones is very intuitive. The number in the model corresponds to the number of units. The W40 is the meaning of the 4 unit moving iron. Because it belongs to the W series, it is generally considered to be the upgraded model of the W series 4R [Westone 4R, W4R]. Currently different channels The price of the W40 is ranging from 2,600 yuan to 2,900 yuan, which is 300-400 yuan higher than the W4R price.

The Weston W40 follows the traditional Westone moving iron earphone design. The 2013 update pays more attention to the appearance of fashion, adding a variety of colors, in the W series this relatively professional series, W40 also joined a Change the design of the outer casing. The earphones provide three pairs of different color shells, blue, red and black, which can be replaced at will. Although there is such a decorative design, many readers still say that the appearance of the W40 seems to be worse than the W4R. Careful comparison, only the material of the outer shell plastic is different. Whether it is W4R or W40, this plastic material, even the words printed on the plastic shell, can't be refined. The appearance does not seem to have its own low face. The UM Pro 10 is doing well.
From the appearance point of view, the W40's headphone cavity is definitely different from the W4R, but the specific difference can only be observed through the picture comparison. From the official parameters, there is no difference between the two. The same is 31 ohm impedance. Sensitivity of 108dB[@1kHz, 1mW]. There is no difference in the appearance of the earphones. It is estimated that the wires of Westone have not changed over the years. The rubber plugs and sponge plugs of the earphones are exactly the same.

However, the W40 has also undergone some changes compared to the W4R. First, although the W4R is also a changeable line design, this design should be the reason for too long. The W4R also uses a two-pin plug-and-drop design, and the work of Westone does not. Too delicate, plugging and unplugging is very inconvenient, and the plugging and unplugging interface looks very rough. Even if compared with the early UE headset, there is no small gap [workmanship]. And W40 uses the now popular coaxial connection. The method is simple, easy to install, and easy to rotate. It is easy to wear. In addition to the standard headphone cable, the W40 is also equipped with a MFI [Made for iPod/iOS] certified remote microphone cable. In addition, W40 The storage box [Westone's commonly used orange three-proof storage box] has also been updated to the latest version, and the box has been added with a screw-on attachment extension.

Overall, the W40 changes very little compared to the W4R, and many materials say that the four-unit configuration of the W40 is changed from a high-pitched and a low-pitched two-tone unit in the W4R period to a high-pitched, mid-range and two-bass. Dividing method. We did not find the official information.
Since we have evaluated the Westone W4R headphones last year, and I personally like it, and then bought one, I have been using W4R, and I am very familiar with its performance. In subjective comparison, we choose Monitor 06 MX, FIIO X5 player, HiFiMAN HM-901 player, vivo Xplay3s, iPhone 5s mobile phone, etc. as a reference.

Overall, the sound style of the W4R and W40 is highly consistent. Under the same setting of the same player, the loudness that can be obtained is almost the same, and the dynamic performance is very close. In terms of detail, the W40 has different degrees compared to the W4R. Subtle changes in style and style.
High frequency : The high frequency sound of W40 is slightly more delicate than W4R, which can be felt in all levels of sound source. Its high frequency is more stretched, the air feels better at very high frequency, and the sound details are big dynamic. More abundant, the control is slightly better. The middle and high frequency connection parts are very different from the W4R, but still show a slightly softer side.
IF : In the middle frequency, the sound of the W40 is much thicker than the W4R. Of course, many people don't like the overly neutral style of the Westone. The W40 is more intense than the W4R sound, but the degree of this change is very small. It is impossible to achieve the dynamics and thickness of the Shure SE535, nor will it be the style of the UE900. The vocal performance, the W40 is also more stretched, the sound is thicker, and the mid-low frequency part is more slack. The difference in the intermediate frequency affects the human voice. Everyone sounds more obvious. But it is still not very different.
Low frequency : The low frequency of the W40 is slightly looser than the W4R sound, and the sense of volume is slightly more. It brings a slight full and thicker sound change in the middle and low frequency parts, but the low frequency dive, dynamic performance, almost no Differences. Especially on mobile phone level sources, the difference is smaller.
Overall, the W40 has a slight improvement in sound compared to the W4R. Its entire sound is more stretched, the extreme high frequency is more delicate, the intermediate frequency is relatively more obvious, and the sound is more full and stretched [still more neutral, biased iron Headphone style, slightly rigid], the dynamic is also slightly improved. The low-frequency volume is mainly improved in the middle and low frequency parts, the sound is slightly looser than the W4R, and the dynamic and dive are basically unchanged.
