I am fully aware that there are dozens of threads about this everywhere on the internet, but I am going to order one of these headphones by monday so i decided to come here to get some last minute advice.
i listen to mostly underground hip hop like madvillain ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2V0mPD6FhXQ ) but will also have the off listen to music such as bon iver, red hot chili peppers, animal collective and metric. keep in mind that i will be listening to mainly hip hop. A lot of instrumental stuff such as j dilla, madlib, etc.
I am leaning towards getting the westone 4r but i am also worried that the bass will be too little for me.
i would be coming from the bose ie2 (i know...)
I also had the etymotic er-4pt a couple of weeks ago but i sent them back due to the extreme lack of bass for my type of music although they did sound amazing with bon iver.
Please help me figure this out as i do not wish to regret my decision. etys also had very small soundstage.
Forgot to mention that i will be using these iems unamped with my iphone 4s.
