I only had a couple of hours listening last night and I will say I am impressed with this pairing. The W4R's opened up and never sounded better. FLAC files sound great and 320 sound good. So so on lesser quality. I am looking forward to spending more time tonight, and will continue to update this.

Obviously its about preference but i ONLY listen to  Flac or Lossless Files. i feel the westone are pretty reveiling, and when using lower quaility audio sound quality suffers too much imo

I agree and it is more aparent with the Fiio X3. I wish it wasn't such an undertaking to replace the rest of my collection.

The X3 is all I need for portable use. I'm sure some people will think otherwise but at the end of the day I have a Burson Conductor and some good full sized headphones for my reference system. I doubt whether adding an amp to the Fiio would make that much difference anyway as the X3 on high gain is more than ample. They sound great.

You prefer high gain over normal? Why?  I just got my X3 yesterday so I haven't really listened on high gain yet?

It was set to high gain when I received it. I listen with the volume set to about 20.

Just got some W4s yesterday and with the Fiio X3 they sound heavenly.
Almost as good as my HD800 with the Crack.
Those are my first IEMs and I am pleasantly surprised.
What would be a natural upgrade for the W4......the addiction is starting to kick in again!!!

I've got the W4Rs, and heard the HD800 on multiple occasions, and I think you might be on that crack you mentioned :beyersmile:

I prefer coffee.....!
It must be the New Toy Syndrome but they ARE really good out of the X3 or right now put of the WA6.
HD800 of course still beats them.....,I think?!

Yeah that 4R + X3 Combo is Heavenly. Can't ask for more on the go.

Is there a lot of advantage to put to high gain ?

I wouldn't have thought so, no.

do you think that the x3 would be much of a upgrade to my 7th Gen ipod classic? If any at all..

It's a big upgrade in terms of SQ.
