I'm starting to think something is wrong with me. After about 2 weeks, I returned a new pair of Westone 4's. They did everything well, from comfort to SQ. It's just that they didn't wow the heck out of me, and for about $500, I wanted them to. The way I described it in another post was that they were like a beautiful woman who does everything right, the kind that you should marry, and would probably make you happy for the rest of your life. But there's just no chemistry, no excitement. So I returned them. I really wanted to love them.
As I write this, I am listening to some Wayne Shorter (Speak No Evil) on a new pair of Klipsch X10i's. They are very small and lightweight, very comfortable, and I like the sound. (I did remove the silicon tips and put on Comply's) The only concern I have is that they seem to be a little flimsy. Let's see if I even keep them that long. I may. I may not. If I don't, I'm going to try the Senn IE8's, which, because they are discontinued are pretty cheap. Or I may try the Monster Miles Davis Tributes.
I'm looking for IEM's that sound like the combo in my sig - TTVJ Slim and Senn HD650's. Warm and wonderful. Colored even. I like that. Suggestions?
