Westone 4 Driver miss match... should be disscused!

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 

Guys i gt my w4s one week ago.... and they were pretty fine... but just frm the begining i knew smthing isnt right abt theas.... and yesterday i figured out that their is a little driver miss match on mine.... its mostly about the bass punch!  im not an a audio pro.. but the bass seems to be not centerized in theas... they seems quite panned to a bit left... i would say if 0 is the balance point, its about 0.7 or 0.8 % panned to the left side... thats quite annoying for metal and sm other music as well

 

i recently found that few people also seems to suffering out frm this issue as well... so just to be clear out can any other uses speak up??  is it ment to be this way by default or are theas defective ones........   any ways still im doubting to claim the warrenty or nt... cuz frm my country they take 6 weeks to get a replacement back...   ph34r.gif deadhorse.gif

take it from me sometimes people are looking for problems and fool themselves into believing something isnt right, try to enjoy your music more, make sure it is all high quality stuff and the player is not EQ'd badly, and use decent equipment where possible, if all else fails and you are still sure theres a problem ask westone for an exchange, if you receive another pair and its the same sell them and move onto something else mate.

This has happened before to folks with multi-driver BA iems, send it back.

I would have thought that this is more than likely a fit / seal issue with your right ear tip. If the seal isn't perfect, the sound with be significantly affected, particularly the bass.

 

Experiment with different ear tips.

 

Also, speak to Westone 4 users in the appropriate threads.

When I bought my W2's I had some issues - I felt that something clearly was not right with the right driver.

Bass was all over the place (for BA drivers too)

 

Then sent them back, and they said: Yup you were right, right driver had blown.

 

lol - these were BRAND NEW pair - so you could have, like me, had a bad batch.

yup + had a bloated "driver" almost muddy, or almost like a £10 pair of apple earphones type of bass.

That died down after 10hrs - but burn-in in BA's doesn't really exist.

 

After 20hrs, I heard less bass impact coming from one of the drivers.

Sent it back, when i got it back, right out the box = no problems bass was brilliant.

 

Sometimes things like this happen.

1. wow talk about aggressive i was only trying to suggest some things you could do, by implying you should try to enjoy your music i was simply saying its easy to listen very closely almost too close and you can ask yourself if theres a problem or is that just how it is. anyway whatever your problem if you arent happy with taking advice then dont come on here and ask for it. oh right thats right you didnt ask...

 

2. how do you know for a fact it isnt a source problem, if you dismiss a possible problem just because you dont like it why you here.

 

3. im not a bully was trying to lend some help and advice into figuring out if there could be a problem elsewhere apart from the headphones but you clearly dont want to hear about any other possible problems, my bad i should have guessed you didnt actually want help.

 

no need to reply just leave it there just didnt want you getting the wrong idea i was just trying to help.

Jinx's advice was sound. It's only normal trouble shooting procedure. You've been through a few sets in the last months and returned and waited several times already. Jinx is just trying to help you avoid the need to do so again in case it is a fit or source issue. Try from you computer and with some different tips. If they sound the same with any other tip, then you'll know you simply need to work a bit more on the fit with whatever you favor. If not, do as Kunlun said and return. Don't be so sensitive about possibly making 1 mistake that you steer yourself into make 2. Good luck.

I think theres nothing wrong with ur headphones, I had the same issue where I did the same mistake and im in Canada, but it was for nothing, Just use different types of tips and check your earphones for wax buildup, thats the only way your away from actually listening to the music.
