i2ehan.... brilliant.... that's all I have to say.... If those other headphones are giving the W4s a run for their money, you must be in heaven! lol. I picked mine up yesterday from FedEx, and so far I've got about 6hours on them I would guess. No burn in, just straight into some music. With lossless files they are performing absolutely fantastic! In comparison to my others they seem to have a thicker note, while at the same time having very near the separation of my hf3s.

It seems to me that my hf3s separate the bass guitar from the drums more than either my Custom 3s or the W4s. That being said however the fullness with the thicker note from the W4 on most every track, makes me feel almost like I'm sitting back in my chair in a concert band, it's a very intimate sounding phone!
