Returned New Westone 4's - Trying Klipsch X10i's - Page 4

post #46 of 51

Have just tried the HD650, reminds me a lot of the Westone 4, I would say they are similar in sound signature with HD650 have a wider soundstage(pretty obvious) and has more energy. The IE80 has more bass emphasis and less neutral, but sounds quite fun in return. Soundstage is wider than the W4.

This is funny, I'm thinking about ditching my x10s and getting w4's

 

I have literally had my x10s replaced by Klipsch twice and I just put them in the mail today to have them replaced for the third time.....

 

The strain relief problem is obviously yet to be solved for me. I happens very quickly and then I just live with the defect until it gets bad enough to send them in. 

 

I will say that the X10i would be outstanding headphones at around a $200 price point and if they would actually not break. I suppose at least one of these is true now.

Nope, they do seem to need an amp, but since I don't like using amps, I guess it doesn't get my vote much.

For the price point, the TF10 can do better, but the fit just isn't as good and comfortable.

I'm really liking my X10's, having had them for about two weeks now, but I am afraid they will break, as they do seem susceptible to cable failure. But damn are they comfy!
