Hello head-fiers! This is my first post here, and I want to ask for your thoughts on the aforementioned in-ear monitors.
As a high school student graduating in a year, I am really looking forward to upgrading my current headset, the Klipsch Image S4i. I really love it, but I can clearly tell where it can be improved.
Now, it might strike you that I didn't list any of the top-tier multiple balanced armature monitors in the title. My reasoning is really silly; now that the Westone 4s have been released, I'm somewhat waiting to see how other manufacturers respond (EarSonics, Shure, JAYS, Westone UM series, etc.). However, comments on these are welcome. Also, I am not quite ready for customs. Perhaps I'll consider them in a few years.
As for my musical preferences, I listen pretty much exclusively to classical music. More specifically, I listen almost solely to solo piano repertoire, along with some piano concertos and the occasional symphonic work. An avid pianist myself, I greatly value clarity and detail. With the piano concertos and symphonies, it is also very important to have a wide soundstage, powerful (but not skull-shattering) bass, and a good response over all frequencies.
It would be preferable to have replies from people who own two or more of these monitors, but helpful accounts and opinions on any one of them are appreciated too!
Thank you in advance for taking the time to help me out!!!
