It's really impressive. The same goes for the mh1. Many will knock it, but with a proper bass eq it sounds at the top of the list. *puts arm up to protect from rock throwing*
I don't use EQ, however not against it in anyway, I rely on different sources, cables, interconnects, amps, etc to try and bring the sound close as possible to my liking which really lessens your options. Westone 4 was good enough for me to buy a pair if that means anything, they do have a specific vibe to them, but the experience was short lived because I would A/B my T-Peos H-200 preferring their clarity and bass impact. Really my preference took control of the situation. All depends what you're looking for in signature, but having 4 drivers doesn't really make it particularly special from what I heard. ER4S could blow W4 across the room in raw detail extension imo. *boom*
My ER4S are on their back from Hawaii after being on audition, I've been without them for a month or two!
