The Unbelievable Stereo System
After seven years of development work, we succeeded in making a product that sets new limits for compact sound reproduction. The WestendXFi Unbelievable is not just a compact bluetooth player, but a portable stereo system with unbelievable sound. “Then I have to say that I’m really amazed.. How can it play so well?”
Designed for listening to music
Our first product, WestendXFi Unbelievable, has been created using the same principles that have been used for centuries in instrument product development: By listening by ear through trial and error, with consistent reasoning and persistence. Our purpose was to make a product that would reproduce music played and sung with real instruments as well as nicely as possible. As in the design of musical instruments, the final sound experience is created by the combined effect of the sound source and the listening space. Westend 3D Sound Imaging, is a technology that brings a realistic sense of space, sound accuracy and presence to a level that is hard to believe. In our opinion, the listening experience is better than just stereo. We named it XFi. (Extreme Fidelity)
These are the reasons Unbelievable is so incredible.
The Westend XFi Concertmaster headphones were our first product in the TWS (true wireless stereo) headphone category. We immediately wanted to make headphones whose sound quality meets even the most demanding wishes. We succeeded.
The sound of the Concertmasters is accurate and balanced without overemphasized bass. That is exactly why they are used by industry professionals. (We warmly recommend listening to Jukka Haavisto’s album Reflections.)
The body of the Concertmasters is epoxy casting and they have a Bluetooth chip from Qualcomm. Codecs Aptx, AAC and SBC. You get the best sound when listening with Aptx combined with a high resolution streaming service like Qobuz, Tidal, etc.
Most of the headphones sold on the market are affordable. Although the main focus of our design is on high-end devices, we decided to use our know-how in a more affordable price category as well. Westend G100 are so-called operating headphones with special attention paid to versatile functions and excellent sound reproduction for its price.
13mm membrane elements and top-class microphones offer good performance in every situation.
The earcups have tactile switches for all functions. Answering calls, volume, changing songs, etc. They are light, so you can use them all day.
You can listen to music or talk on the phone continuously for approx. 7-8 hours. With the help of the battery in the transport box, the headphones can be fully charged 4-5 times. The headphones connect to both headphones directly, and the technology also supports the use of both headphones on their own. In this case, the connection changes from stereo to mono and the sound also improves.
The sound world of the headphones is designed to be as neutral as possible, but thanks to advanced technology, the headphones obey the sound settings of most phones. A pleasant tone of voice is easily found. Excellent headphones for use.
Westend G69ANC bring anti-noise reduction technology to affordable headphones. There are three modes to choose from: counter noise, so-called transparent mode, (where attenuation is less) and traditional undamped mode. These features can be adjusted from the touch switch on the headset. With anti-noise technology, the quality of calls improves significantly, for example outside in the wind or in the middle of traffic. The noise reduction can also be used to exclude disturbing sounds when you want to concentrate on something. The headphones connect to both headphones directly, and the technology also supports the use of both headphones on their own. The shape of the earphone fits exceptionally well in the ear and 3 silicone plugs of different sizes are included.
The 10mm membrane element guarantees good bass reproduction and the A2DP, SBC, AAC bluetooth codecs guarantee excellent data transfer. Bluetooth BT5.1 technology guarantees a long range to the sound source. You can listen to music or talk on the phone continuously for 7-8 hours. With the fast charging in the transport box, the headphones can be fully charged 4-5 times. The earpieces have tactile functions that allow you to control the anti-noise features, answer the phone, end the call, increase the volume, move from one song to another, etc.
NOVELTY. COMING JANUARY 2024
Westend Radio is a digital technology radio with an antenna solution designed by Westend (Kim Kaisti). Our purpose was to create a small, affordable and beautiful radio that is suitable for all kinds of use. On the bedside table or, for example, on the cottage porch.
Westend Radio works with both mains power and a built-in battery. You can also use it as a bluetooth speaker.
The outer shell of the radio is made of 10 mm thick beech and the inner structure is ABS plastic. The grates are aluminum. The entire structure is assembled with screws without adhesives and is completely repairable.
Our idea was to make an environmentally friendly product that can be repaired and easily disassembled into recyclable materials at the end of its life cycle. There are several color options and we will start with four colors first. Maybe more colors later.
Size 8 x 8 x 16 cm
The speaker elements are Westend’s own design, as are the passive radiators at the ends. The product must of course be fully repaired and recycled at the end of its life cycle. The color options will be the light one in the picture and another color that we will decide during the spring. Do you want to join the waiting list? You will be among the first to receive the product.
Westend Sport are headphones intended for sports and leisure time exercise, which function as so-called With Air Conduction technology. The sound of the speaker is directed to the ear from outside and there is no need to put anything inside the ear canal. You can talk on the phone wirelessly or listen to music and still hear what is happening around you. This is an important safety factor when moving around by bike, running, walking, walking the dog, etc. It also works perfectly, for example, on the way to work.
The headphones stay well on your head with the help of a strap that goes around the neck, and you can wear a bike helmet at the same time. The headphones are IPX5 water resistant. You can practically do anything but swim with headphones on.
The headphones are not intended for HiFi use, so the sound quality is not up to the same level as, for example at the Westend Concertmasters. However, the sound quality is excellent for listening to the radio or music while exercising.
The telephone sound is then in a class of its own. The headphones have ENC (Environmental Noise Cancelling) technology, which enhances the sound spoken into the microphone and separates it from background noise. The other party can hear your voice very well. A great feature when you talk while cycling or jogging, for example. Westend Sports are the number one headphones for people on the move.
