Slightly dark with really tight bass, probably not the most fun IEM, but I like it with just about any genre.
Thanks, I'm glad I did not order these to soon.

What kind of kpop/jpop do you listen to? I personally like Kara/SNSD, and I personally feel that the Westone 4R is best out of my headphone collection for this type of music. I think it costs $499, but not 100% sure.
Just getting into the genre but I like Kara, Utada etc. Still I want these to work for other genres too. Electronic, classical( strings mainly some piano), rock, alternative. Granted I do like my bass, but like to have a nice amount of treble/mids and highs. I will look into some of the suggestions and see what else is posted. I feel like a complete noob right now with IEMs compared to headphones.
(also If you have some J/k pop you like let me know ^_^)
If I need to I can put a bit more in if customs will be comfy and sound better overall. Maybe the Heir 3/4 A?
