Westone 4 Appreciation Thread and Reviews (a.k.a. Westone 4 ?) - Page 2

The orange color matches the orange "iPod" icon on the iPad's screen. Hopefully this means I'll be able to get some used Westone 3's at a price I can afford etysmile.gif

I thought it was a just blur on the photo but looking closely now it really does look like a 4...Awesome!

The thing that makes me think it's a 4 is the angle of the black part that protrudes into the orange. On the W3s it's more rounded looking, plus the lines don't connect that deep into the red shape

Could someone use a software to blow the image and enhance the resolution somehow?

I'm sure someone on Head-fi would have the tools. My monitor is not helping either mad.gif

I'm almost positive it is  a 4....

I need these! At first I thought it could have been the limited edition W3's based on the colour but after double checking they look totally different.

 

I'd sell my 3's straight away for 4 drivers... could be waiting forever though!

Being that I just bought the W3, I'm not sure how to take this news. On the plus side though, I only use IEMs while commuting so the sound quality of a W4 would probably exceed my needs.

It's gonna take 4 years. lol

It definitely looks like a 4 to me.  I'm no expert, but just playing with some basic photo editing tools I was able to make the 4 more visible.

C'mon Flavio, You must have a contact at Westone that can confirm that a W4 is in the works.  We're counting on you to get to the bottom of this.  tongue_smile.gif

That looks much sharper now and it does look like a 4.

I do know people at Westone but wouldn't count on any of them to "deliver" their CEO unless they are authorized to disclose that. Manufacturers are very secretive about what they are working on until they feel "safe" to announce it.

Because of CES's being in early January I'd expect any announcement during that trade show. IF the product is "close enough" to be shipped by summer or something. Specially after the delays they had with the "3" I bet they'd be much more careful about making any announcements.

This is what I call fantastic marketing. Clever and disruptive! :p
