Good luck with that then. The lowest I have seen the 4 (and not the r) is a b stock £281 at iheadphones. Keep an eye on earphonesolutions, they occasionally do a 20-25% off which could bring it down.

I probably should have recommended something else to him, though.
Was he shocked when you mentioned the price of the w4r's lol

Surprisingly, no. I made sure to take advantage of one of those 25% discounts from earphonesolutions.com, but it's still pricey. I think he already has exposure to this kind of stuff, but he doesn't have a high-end IEM yet.

It's almost the historical low too. I guess $325 will be the standard for a good deal now.

Yep, that date is about right. I ordered mine on Aug 17 when I saw the price an returned my W4 (bought from third party fulfilled by Amazon for $320). The newer version plus the full warranty at almost the same price was a huge plus!

 

I had originally bought the W4 because it was much cheaper and was under a 1 year warranty because it was still "fulfilled by Amazon" (according to the amazon rep I chatted with)

post #4554 of 5282
That would not be true. Only sold by amazon not fulfilled will entitle you to the warranty, as far as I know. But who knows maybe something has changed.

The anazon rep had said only a one year warranty rather than full two year. Either way, I'm glad I returned them and got the 4r for the same price... sold by amazon to get the full two year warranty.

Exactly yes, Westone Customer service is very great :-)
I hope that you are happy with the W4R same as me here as I'm listening my music with them browsing this forum.

eager to hear your opinions and impressions on the earportz.

Just got home (8:40 pm bleh) but they came in the mail today. :)

 

I'll post impressions this week, hopefully tonight, but I'm pretty tuckered out, so we'll see haha.

Got my SE-535's in. Yikes, what a massive change in sound from the Westone 4R's. (If you missed my earlier post, I got both IEM's to try them out at the same time). The SE-535 sounds kind of thin, shrill and sharp. It has a lot of detail, and is quick as hell. But at least for my ears, these are missing a lot of body/weight/warmth that I enjoyed in the 4R's. I'm not saying the 535's are bad, and maybe my description of them are 100% off for someone else (it's just my own subjective taste in sound signatures, and my own hearing).

 

I'm going to keep listening to the SE-535s, and try to see if I can get used to them. I like the physical build much better on these than the 4R. But so far, I much prefer the 4R sound. Kind of surprised at the jump in sound signature from the SE-215s as well. 

 

Going to mess around with tips. I've been told they change the sound quite a bit on these.
