Either the TS model or Shure black foam.

Sounds about right, the clear tips have the best clarity, although I use the grey silicons the most since they seem to have the best mids and fit.

i bought the tx ones and the high seem so much better because of the wax guard  for some reason

It seems like w4 having a big competition with new UE900s...  i thought ue900 was sm kind of a small improvement over the triple-fi's... turn out to be not.  Subscribed to Tinyman392.

Do note that I haven't heard the TF10s.  So I can't comment on that one.  I do have to say that I'm quite impressed with what Logitech did with it though.

hmm,,,  i really enjoyed my tf10's until i bought the w4s..  after 2 hrs i felt like what the *****? with that experience i though ue900 will be sm what  the same... I pretty much dnt knw what kind of music that u are referring to , but with ( death metal , Black metal , Dub step ) w4 gives a unforgettable experience. specially when it comes to death metal i really didn't liked the TF10s... dnt knw hw it is on 900s

I'd never considered that (matching tip to bore hole). But strangely I get the best results with the large grey silicone buttons.

Anyone know if Unique Melody is willing to reshell the W4's along with additional driver upgrades (to 8 drivers, for example)? They list the W3/UM3X, but I see nothing about the W4s.  Would they still do it if I asked?

How is that possible ? to insert additional drivers / BA into the existing casing ?

http://www.custom-iem.com/reshell-upgrade-to-8-drivers-p-631.html. It probably won't sound as coherent as a true custom, but I'm willing to take one for the team, as nobody's piped up about how they sound.

Is $380 a good price for a brand new Westone 4 ?

I exclusively use the P-series (large), with the tips trimmed so there is no foam overhanging the core.

Remember that Westone is nazi about their varranty unless it's from an authorized dealer, you'll get 2 years if u register on Westone after buying from one. Worth a couple of bucks if u ask me.
