So I tried my westone 4s for the first time today, I really expected the box to be a little bigger. Oh well.
Anyway I have been using the Sennheiser IE8 lately a lot, and the monster turbine pro copper. The Coppers really showed me the power of the IE8, it makes the coppers almost seem to be recessed a bit. Total lacking of the detail of the IE8 despite the mid hump.
But back to the 4s, it took me about 30 seconds to figure out how to put them in as it did when I owned the SE530s. But once I got them in, I tested them with some low bitrate metal. Bad idea haha, first thing I noticed, so I scrolled down to some Pink Floyd I have on FLAC (my PC mind you) and pushed play. Holy Hell, these things are ******* BLEEDING emotion. MASSIVE soundstage and Separation between instruments. Very Flat, almost perfect.
Total Different Beast compared to the IE8, Totally different! The Floyd Blew me away. I have to get use to the signature though imp use to the IE8's massive bass.
Idk how you guys feel, but I didn't know these things would be so emotional, better yet I didn't think the IE8 was lacking so much emotion.
