“Bass response doesn't bleed to the vocals or any other frequency whatsoever, thin lightweight cable with no microphonics and small plug to connect to portable devices. Some people called holographic sound but I would say it's more like a de-phase between armature drivers. Westone star tips are excellent, I use them for almost all my IEMs, I think the ” --squallkiercosa
“ These were my first real earphones, and I bought them entirely because they'd been spreading like a plague on a forum I used. Upon first hearing them I was disappointed, but over time they grew on me, and until upgrading to the ER4, they were a firm favourite. Some of my friends couldn't get the fuss, nor understand why anybody would spend a hundred bucks on iPod earphones, but then again...” --BBBS
“I bought these as an upgrade from the W3, which while extremely fun, I soon became disappointed in, due to mid bass bleed into the midrange. This caused vocals to become too chesty and distortion rock guitar notes too rounded instead of hard edged. Enter the W4. Fit and Isolation: Westone 4 is extremely comfortable. I love their size and weight. They only...” --shotgunshane

“ I personally prefer the sound of the "Westone" series to the "UM" products. I use my IEM's for listening to pre-recorded music. The sound of the UM series is very good, but the WESTONE 4R is the closest I have come to the sound of my FOCAL speakers. While the sound was pleasing when using the COMPLY foam tips, the UM56 custom tips took everything up a level. ...” --psych_major

“It was midnight and I was surfing ebay for fun like I normally do and saw these headphones on sale from a reputable USA seller. The deal was ending in 20minutes and there was only 1 pair left... 40 seconds of thought, debate, and action take place and next think I know ive spend $60 on headphones I dont need. I already have a pair of Shure SE315s that I love so I spent the next week waiting for...” --Mitchell4500
“ Disclaimer I bought these about 3 years ago, used them a lot and got to "know" them well. The (sort of a) good thing is: They still perform as good as they did when I first tried them on. But that was not too good. Back then I felt disenchanted: they somehow sounded unimpressive, which left me confused. I mean, I based my decision to buy the most expensive earphones I had ever owned solely...” --Checkbox G

“ First off let me preface by stating that I bought these on a whim. I had read many things about Etymotic's penchant for accurate reproduction. The initial impressions I got from these were a mixed bag. First off, I love the isolation factor, putting these on in the middle of a crowded communal area was like stepping into a library. I tried the various silicone...” --Exarch
