I'd like to think from the sources listed on my profile at least one of them would of worked well? I think insane has different meanings to each individual and what gear a person has heard to form a bench mark or reference point will decide that. A well driven ER4S is much closer to insane than I ever heard Westone 4 or the 4R I owned, then again ASG-2 and 1plus2 take that word to its true meaning for me. I could go into the discovery thread and a find a member claiming a $50 FOTM sounds insane. Westone 4 was good but even something like H-200 at half the price walked over W4 to my ears.
very well said and point taken...i mean not everyone can afford the RSA SR-71B So my perception of the w4r with the 71b might not be what the average joe can afford.
and i agree with you, i have the etymotic er4P and MY GOD those sound stupid out of the 71b
i held off for a while on the w4r becuase so many said they were veiled or dark, but i get no darkness at all with my rig and the w4r, but i also am listening to them balanced with toxic cable silver point interconnects and cables and this might be why i dont perceive any kind of veiled or darkness. i actually listened a while today with the w4r and my rig, ive been using other iems like tf10/er4p/se535 with them, and they gave me a wow factor...i cant say more wow over the er4p though
