I know the title sounds funny, but let me elaborate. Westone 4 has awesome reviews, that being said, the iem has the perfect amount of bass deep and punchy, not over exaggerated on the face boomy... they say the iem's bass is the way it shud be. Clarity and soundstage is top notch. Sound is crystal clear, lush and liquidy.. metallic beats sound gorgeous. Mids, highs, lows all sound too good with the w4.
I am not a bass head, but i atleast the IEM should be able to handle good bass whenever required, and should be as clear with good treble and soundstage as the RE0 or the HF5. And i know Westone 4 does this gracefully.
I plan to buy the westone as my next iem, probably after 3-4 months, but for now i am looking for an IEM that has the the above features, and helps me undestand and slowly adopt to a top tier iem.
Hence looking for an IEM as of now that is below 100 dollars.
I was looking at ljokerl's iem comparision thread.. and i would prefer a sound rating of atleast 8.5 and above, if it is in and around 9.. it be awesome. :)
My apologies if this is too much to ask.. pls guide.
P.S. I can add another 50 dollars max.. can spend 150 if there is something very similar to w4
