The obvious and closest alternative seems to be the CK10, though this shall be my last IEM purchase for a while and so I'm contemplating other choices. Cost is secondary to sound.
I definitely want BA based 'phones.
The W4 intrigues.
A few questions:
1. I suppose W4 is a more of a mid-centric balanced IEM? And the CK10 is more of an analytical IEM?
Balanced or analytical: I'm not sure which I want... I want a flat response curve. Which is that?
2. which is "faster"?
3. which has better bass extension? Which has cleaner bass?
4. which more excels on the top end? More extension?
5. are there any alternatives I should be considering?
