I will have to try the um3x also these are probly closer to the 535 then the w4

I recently bought the westone 4R and i would definately recommend these for dubstep type music and when it's paired with the Fiio E11 or any amp this powerful they sound absolutely Fantastic.

Shure SE535 or Westone 4R

- What IEM's [in you opinion] are suited for these sort of bands:

* Skrillex
* Coldplay
* Enter Shikari
* Nero
* Deftones
* Pendulum
* Florance + the Machine
* Lana Del Rey
* Adele
* Sigur Ros
* Portishead
* Telefon Tel Aviv
* Machine Head
* Evanescence

Thank you :)

Other IEM's which you know might be best suited for the bands listed above could be: Grado: GR10/Phonak: Audéo PFE 232/Sennheiser IE8i


Again... better for me is not assured better for you!  You have to thrust your own ears. Best is to get access to these iem in store you likes and test by yourself!  Personely, am in love with Adele, Sarah Mc...land, Krall, Deepforest, Delerium jazz, soft rock, electro.. and am very satisfied with my SE535+UM56.   My next step will be W4r + Baldur cable, and last step will be to go for custom IEM.  Goodluck... choose wisely!!!!wink_face.gif

Certainly it would be more effective if you tried to describe what you expect when you hear music, with your own words.

Examples: do you expect strong bass, forward vocals, do you like drums ? Do you want music to sound very close to you, or do you prefer more a concert-like sound ?

Things like this will help us to propose IEMs... at the moment people are just throwing everything they have used to listen music in your list. wink.gif

 

 

And just a remark: if you're willing to invest in a very expensive pair of Westone 4R, you could afford the Special Edition of SE535s, which will be nicer than standard SE535s. I'm not saying you should choose one or the other. Westone UM3X could also be another alternative, they're not technically inferior to 4Rs or SE535SE, they just have a different sound signature.

Why spend so much money on IEM? Direct go for CIEM is a better choice.

For hard guitar genres UM3X and Etymotic ER4p are the greatest. From dynamics GR07 and Sony EX600.
