Is there any reason why you ordered three times for the same type ?

If the $57 cable sounds better than the stock, I wonder how great is this $300 + cable :-o

Only because I had x3 different earphones, at different time and sold them with the cables included. no durability issues.
The TF10 version did cause some fit problems, but not with the Westone version.
Yes, that $300 silver cable is very close to what Tralucent used to sell with 1Plus2 before they revised their cables. ;)

i contacted tralucent a while back on the silver cable they used for the 1plus2 and they quoted me 400.00 i thought that was a bit of money IMO

I love the fiio x3 paired with my w4r.

The fiio pairs great with the W4, with a narrower soundstage but more depth, and a very enjoyable sound.

Yes, I tend to hear amps making the soundstage more tunnelish or like you say, narrower.  Not sure I like it that way.  But overall clarity is surely a touch better.

I wouldn't resort to cables just to increase your bass. The audible differences are arguable as it is. Change your source or do hardware-based EQ if you can.

I find that the black foam tips that come with them gives me a little more bass.. But Ya a different source or a little bump in the eq would work.. Also after listening to them for a bit and letting your brain adjust will help hear the bass more.. Just opinion..

A new cable won't change the sound, doesn't matter if you spend 20, 50 or 400 dollars (a common measure of sound quality around here, LOL).

W4R is not exactly bass heavy, but maybe you are not reaching a good enough seal. Try a bigger tip, or a Shure Olive tip. EQ settings also may help!

Save your cable money for buying albums or for a future headphone upgrade. wink.gif

Supplied star tips plus "jazz" EQ setting on the iPod classic is outstanding. Tips the treble and bass just a little bit. Perfect!

Just got my W4R IEMs... wow, incredible upgrade coming from my SE425 IEMs. Bass is finally a thing in my IEM world again lol. Totally worth it!

Well said. Agree 100%.

I just got a pair of 4R's and I'm really not liking it.  The treble spike around 7-10k sounds really piercing to my ears.  I've tried the star tips, true fit, and shure olives and it doesn't help.  Maybe the 4R isn't for me?
