I have been searching for quite a while now. Does anyone know of an IEM with better bang for buck than the Westone 4R, just so you know. This will be my first entry level IEM to BAs.
I read earlier on in the thread someone preferred the 4R to the JH13 o.O.
Seems to me around this price range is where the law of diminishing returns really kicks in and although there is no sonic improvement it is just a matter of preference to different sound signatures, am I right in thinking this?
Other than the 4R, what other IEMs would you recommend bearing in mind my headphone inventory (sub 50)?
the guy who prefers w4r to jh13 probably just likes the westone warm sound, jh13 are significantly better technically.
As for other iems I suggest looking into the ATH im series thread, the series has a brighter signature, and in my opinion (someone that prefer a brighter sound to the warm/smooth westone sound) the im50 competes with the w4r, better highs, and significantly better bass. W4r has more details and smooth vocals. The problem with the ATH im series is that they are quiet big.
