I guess the Westone W4R that retails for $499.99 has zero quality cables. Why does one of the oldest and most reputable IEM makers choose this stupid kind of twisted cables on one of the best universal IEMs in the world?
Oh wait, this cable design is great. It is durable and reduces micro phonics. What was I thinking? Derp.
Honestly from memory these B2's recall the Ortofon EQ-5's I had but at half the cost. Nice product, cable gives pretty much ZERO confidence though, I'll be recabling or reshelling these if I keep them. Very detailed, I still prefer some of my others and I think the Vsonics are a better "deal" overall due to construction, but these are worth the $$. i'm going to try Ink's suggestion with Etymotic triflange and others. I wouldn't have guessed a silicone for treble attenuation, but it's worth a try. Foam usually works for me but I appreciate the longevity of a silicone. Best part of this hobby is the different flavors with nearly the same basic ingredients .
These are very detailed. I understand completely why Joker and others swear by them. Brings out subtle details like few others
