I can add to these:  RSA Mustang or Predator! Using Shure yellow foam tips, Westone Star tips (red)

Price range?

 

personally im using the ALO Audio RX MK2 / Cypher Labs Algorhythm Solo / ALO Audio SXC SOLO Cable Combo.... this is a exceptional setup that i feel synergizes with the W4R With Perfection.

 

im also using the BTG_Audio Sunrise Upgrade Cable..

 

i have also used the jds labs c421 and jds c5 and those are really good amps for the price.

Alo Continental V2 may be what you're looking for.

I get great results from the combination.

i agree. v1 to v3 the w4r seems to love. for whatever reason the w4 seems to shine with pretty much all alo audio amps they seem to have great synergy between the alo and w4/r

Agree with you.. Westone 4R with Null Audio's Aoede Series silver cable paired up with Alo Continental V2 is actually a set up where I can live with after I retire from the audio world..

I have to chip in here. An amp that makes the W4`s sound bang on? Less than $100? C&C BH. Flick the LF switch, bass is enhanced but also a little helping hand on the highs.

Combine that with the Comply tsx400 tips, a benchmark that is hard to beat. My mission is to find that in a universal. Only chance this year is the Stage diver 3.

 

Believe in cables? a Mundorf cable LOD. A Fii0 in comparison is super warm.

Digizoid is by far the best amp out there. Its size is what puts it above all other amps.

Glad you like it, I am actually selling an as new ZO2 at the minute. (UK)

Hi TwinQy,

how do you know that if iPhone 5 has higher impedance than iPhone 4S ? how do you tell that ?
because so far I've been using the W4 and W4R IEM connected to my Fiio E11 or not, I cannot tell the difference of any sound quality apart from higher sound volume.

The source that I use is the 320 kbps MP3 and FLAC.

Where the E11 is around 0.5 ohms, if I recall correctly (don't quote me on the number I'm probably wrong)

 

I think it's a good thing that you can't tell the difference. Now you'll probably have to spend less time worrying about DAPs/amps. Which is always good for the wallet.

I used my W4s with an IPC and JDS C5 for the time that I had them and they had great synergy. The transparent C5 added a little space and body to the sound. Great combination. And relatively inexpensive!

Thanks for the clarification man,

So in this case, the higher the impedance, means the higher to drive or higher SQ loss ?
therefore,AMP is needed to reduce the loss ?

Err, no, impedance curves on some IEMs (BAs mostly) mean that they react differently under different output impedances.
