The Westone 4 is an excellent earphone but I still prefer the SM3. Drier presentation, faster feeling treble with a tiny bit of sparkle, and bass like a dynamic.

I was in the same position as you are. I went to over-ears. Well, not quiet, but over-ears does perform better.

Have you considered customs? That might be the only way to go at this point.

Any suggestion of portable headphones? i think custom great but i'm just young and the ears might change shape , i will not make a custom until 18

The upcoming ASG-2 might be worth considering.  It's out around the end of January I believe.
