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.
  • 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)

  • Summary: I'd bought these from a head-fier. My purchase was off to a rough start unfortunately, The left channel used to die out after half an hour of listening. Luckily, they were covered under warranty and I was able to secure a replacement.
  • Pros: Great fit and comfort, excellent cable and build quality, unmatched details, instrument separation, smooth midrange, SUPERB customer service
  • Cons: Greatly tip dependent due to short nozzle, tame highs with some tips, Price.

  • Pros: SQ, Accessories, Fit, Cable, Isolation

  • Summary: I had these for about 3 months now. I can say that this is an eye-opener for me. I had lower tier IEMs before, namely Sennheiser CX-300, Beats Tour (aweful build quality), Klipsch II, Brainwavz M3 etc. and I liked the sound of those for their price, except for the Beats.
  • Pros: Awesome sound quality, excellent isolation
