hey ljokerl, I'm not sure if someone asked this, but how would you compare the Westone 4 to the 1964 triples? I am still thoroughly debating between the two. I have custom tips for my sennheiser ie8s, so I'm a bit used to the whole customs process, but how would you compare the two in terms of sound, isolation, cost to value ratio, etc. Also, which one would you recommend more. Again, i'm sorry if someone has asked this before.
Noone has asked because that's what the sound, isolation, and value scores are for. They do have different signatures and I can't clearly recommend one of the other. The W4 is smoother, a bit thicker, more liquid-sounding. It covers the frequency spectrum a little better on the whole and has a more spacious soundstage. The 1964-T is faster, tighter, cleaner, and more accurate. Its midrange and treble are crisper and clearer and have more aggressive detailing without sounding overly analytical. Both earphones place a very realistic amount of weight on the notes, which is one of their big strengths compared to much of the competition.
