Summary: i am very much an amateur noob. my first impression are, 1. very light and very good fit. 2. compared to tf10 i felt the signature of westone to be a little warm(very little). this may be because tf 10 has a bit forward highs. also tf 10 has a larger sound stage then these. 3.
Summary: I was debating for awhile between these and the W3s and IE8s. I settled on these based on what I had read of the 3s being muddy and the IE8s being not as detailed. I like to keep reviews short because I hate reading lengthy reviews.
Pros: Cool design, great detail and transparency, amazing detail in bass, great fit
Summary: Lows are precise & natural sounding, no roll-off but no over-emphasis. Mids live up to the Westone reputation & produce amazing sound & clarity with good depth & space, slightly sweet & warm, definitely not 'in your face' but still intimate.
Westone W40 (Updated model) Review - Great sound and accessories!
20 May 2014
Summary: The sound isn't immediately wow-inducing, but over a short time, you will come to realise the exceptional detail in these IEMs. Sound: It has a very balanced sound signature, with a slight midbass bump which really boosts the impact, however at the expense of some of the clarity in the lower mids.
Summary: I bought these to replace my Shure 535's that were lost/stolen at Paris CDG airport to use with my Cowon J3. At first I was very disappointed - the sound was cloudy, indistinct and the complex orchestral music I like sounded worse than an ipod.
Summary: First of all, I am a audiophile. I NEED to have the best quality sound. I enjoy purchasing high end gear for people like myself who NEED absolution in sound. I decided to purchase the WESTONE 4R SERIES because after reading many reviews, these were regarded as the BEST neutral sounding earphones...
Summary: *I listened to the Westone 4Rs using iPhone 4S and the latest iPod Classic (6th Generation). The below sums up my listening experience from these sources only.* The Westone 4Rs fit my ears better than any other earphones.
Summary: I enjoy using these as they produce good balanced sound. The removable cables mean that you can prolong their life by purchasing a replacement cable. The earbuds provided are uncomfortable and I did find the right fit.
Summary: My original intention was to purchase the Shure SE535. While reviewing the option on Amazon I glanced the reviews on Westone 4R and became intrigued and then finally purchased purely based on the reviews I read! My initial reaction is the sound staging and spatiality of the earphones is astounding.
