That is why I said W4 is better off having 2 driver of mid range instead of 2 drivers of bass......since W3 mid was quite inferior to UM3X

Question, how are they gonna shove 4 drivers into it, the w3 is already like

Sounds interesting. Hopefully they're not as sibilant as the W3 - I sold them because of that issue and went to UM3X (although I prefered the fit of W3).

Well Westone was faster than Jays. I wonder when the x-Jays will come out..
post #82 of 5326

I agree. Let's hope they add a replaceable cable for the W4.

The picture looks blurry and we don't know if he let this cat out of the bag by accident or if the camera color is completely off and rendered the red an orange, but I'm almost sure I can read a "4" on those earpieces:

 

Westone 4 ?!?

 

I guess it could be a Westone 3 :(



I don't know what's wrong with the link above, but as I read from the tease: it's claimed that Westone 4 has dual bass + 1 mid + 1 high. However, on the link http://www.earphonesolutions.com/westone-4-headphones.html, earphonesolutions claimed that:

The Westone Four could still have a 3-way crossover but have 2 drivers handling mids, 1 driver handling lows and another driver handling highs.

 

So, which one is TRUE?

post #84 of 5326

Yea,  I would have much prefered an extra midrange or even tweeter driver.  While the extra bass driver may not necessarily mean more bass it should certainly mean a "fuller weightier" sound which, again, the W3 does not need and may certainly may cause it to reveal less treble.  We will just have to wait and find out.

 

Looks identical to W2 and W3 but with different artwork.

Yes, these look good, but the price is steep. The price for my quad customs from 1964 EARS is about the same price. My custom quad, by the way, is dual bass, 1 mid and 1 treble. The bass isn't too bloated, but the extension is incredible. They're the best IEM I've heard thus far, and I've heard many. It will be interesting to find out if the universal W4 can match up. I guess they tune that fourth driver anyway they want. As for stuffing them in the shell, not all drivers are the same size, so they might be able to stuff four in there together with no complications.

Don't be silly mate - you'll get bored of the 1964s in about a week and be saving for the Westone 4's soon after. This is the Law Of Eric.
