Westone recently introduced its Westone 4 earbuds, which are being boasted as the "world's first four driver balanced armature universal fit earphones."

The Westone 4 headset is targeted towards someone who is "serious audiophile and music enthusiast" (so probably a professional musician or someone in the industry given the $449 price tag).

Along with some durable cables intended to reduce vibration and other elements that would damage the audio quality, the earbuds are made with Westone's signature True-Fit technology for improved comfort and a lightweight design.

Set to be officially unveiled at CES 2011 in Las Vegas next month, the Westone 4 will start shipping during the first quarter of 2011.
