Westone 4R In-ears

techPowerUp!
25 January 2012
  • Summary: The Westone 4R does exactly the same as the original 4 model, but has a few extra tricks up its sleeves. The user replaceable cable is definitely interesting for all performers and audiophiles. Besides that the inclusion of a hard carrying case is definitely a nice addition. The price difference between the new 4Rs and non-Rs is around $50 which is fair considering what the 4Rs bring to the table.
  • Pros: Excellent performance across the board, Exchangeable cable, Small for a quad driver in-ear, Good fit, Very detailed sound, Great sound stage performance, Superb bundle, Memory wire (preference)
  • Cons: Price ($50 more expensive than the Westone 4s), Memory wire (preference)

Westone TrueFit 4 Universal-Fit In-Ear Headphones (Playback 41)

  • Excerpt: ), but we also understand that some music lovers would prefer to go with universal-fit in-ear ‘phones rather than going down the custom-fit path. Part of this has to do, we think, with some listeners’ reluctance to have custom ear-mold impressions taken (a process that admittedly looks a bit scary and feels weird for first-timers, but that actually doesn’t hurt a bit), and part has to do with price (since custom-fit monitors cost not just a little but a

Westone 4 Quad-Driver Earphone Review

The Gadgeteer
17 April 2011
  • Excerpt: When I first saw the press release announcing the Westone 4 , my first thought was, “OK, now, it’s getting a bit silly.” After all, I’ve owned the Westone 3 for a year now and I love them. The bass is a little forward, but so what?  The mids and highs are comfortable. So what is the Westone 4 going to bring to the table that the Westone 3 doesn’t … more bass? Please, spare me.
  • Pros: One of the best soundings earphones available, Very comfortable, Almost totally isolating, Microphonics-free cable
  • Cons: This kind of isolation can be dangerous on the street, Can be a hassle inserting and removing in an office setting, Pricey

Westone 4 In-ears

techPowerUp!
24 January 2011
  • Summary: Westone have struck gold with the Westone 4 design. It corrects the main deficits of the Westone 3s' design both sonically and durability wise. The price of $449 is a bit on the high side for many. For the avid music listener the sound quality of the Westone 4s makes them good value since you would have to venture on into custom in-ears in order to get anything better at the moment, and those things have zero resale value.
  • Pros: Sound stage, Tight bass with good extension, Treble extension and detail, Excellent bundle, Comfortable to wear, Sound great with a multitude of tips, Excellent cable, Very neutral presentation (preference)
  • Cons: Expensive, Not the most musical in-ears out there (preference)

Westone 4 earphones in Review

  • Conclusion: My scalp starts to itch when I’ve nothing negative to say about an earphone. But in the Westone 4’s case, I’ll have to contend myself with scratching and scratching. Detailed, well made, well accessorised, and good sounding, it is an excellent earphone for the audiophile and the consumer alike. And where the 3 sort of splayed out wildly, chasing away some good-intentioned musicians, the 4 will probably find space in the ear of your favourite musician.

  • Summary: There are not many renowned brands in the earphone category yet there remain a few who are trying their best to come up with innovative and proper earphones. One such name is Westone. The company lacks proper recognition but makes up for the same in terms of quality. There are many earphones in the market which claim a substantial amount of money but fail to deliver.
