Whichever version sounds best is very subjective in a way. Someone like Brian Eno, who is a very experimental producer, did a lot of unconventional things for the production of U2's LPs, like fading in the intro of a song in mono and using a lot of lo fi techniques. The remasters could be technically better but not necessarily better artistically. An example would be the 25th anniversary surround mix of Queen's 'A Night At the Opera', of course technically, it's superior...
I have them both, I didn't like the SE846 fit at first and the cables are so stiff, but after tightening up with the cable tie, they fit well and are quite comfortable. W60 are better of course but the SE846 don't suck at all, better than the Roxanne and way way better the the Noble K10 IMO.
Most monitors are neutral but unfortunately most listening environments aren't , so studios do EQ thier monitors, and most monitors have built in EQ and calibration system nowadays. Having said that, I'd rather not need to EQ my headphones if I don't have to.
Same here, had 5 different pairs of um3x/RC and now the Pro 30. Maybe something else can beat them in terms of clarity, details or soundstage, but nothing can beat the SE846 in terms of bass, not K3003, not IE800, not Noble K10U, not Roxanne, not W60, not LCD-2/3, not K812.Yeah, like the Pro 50 which have a lot of sub bass than sub bass, all it does is making them very muddy sounding. The W60 can produce slightly lower sub bass I found, maybe 1 or 2 Hz lower but they don't...
SE846 can produce super low and punchy sub bass which the um3x can never do in a million years. The SE846 sub bass is better and punchier than any IEMs or full size headphones I've encountered, Audeze, Roxanne W60 etc, in fact they sound as good as many speakers system with subwoofers. I love my um3x but saying the bass is of same quality as the SE846 is a bit much.
I will try do that this week, I think I have done so before but couldn't remember the result. But since the W4 and W4r are neatly packed back into their boxes I assumed I liked the W60 a lot more.
For me, I love the SQ of all the Westone IEMs I owned, from UM2 to W60, I have W4 and W4r but not heard the W40, and Pro 50 are the only one I really disliked although the W50 do sound better, I've demoed them in many occasions at different shops and they all ended with the same conclusion for me. Since you ordered them already, I hope you like them, maybe it's just me.
I can't rememeber using any other brand of headphones for tracking in recording studios apart from AKG before the midn90s. I had a singer complained to me once that the K240 were obstructing her jaw movements while she sang, I'm sure there wouldn't be too many singers being happy with the LCD-XC for tracking though. Nowadays I prefer to use the hd25 for tracking, they don't leak much sound, and won't obstruct jaw movements.
I had dead drivers with 3 pairs of my um3x/um3xRC, but so far my Pro 30 have been fine, so maybe Westone has improved their quality control since the new lines.
