i just tried the westone 4r and i really like its lush thick sweet sound. But i find them uncomfortable, fiddly. Also i would like a bit more bass extension and a little less thump. Any suggestions in an alternative.

universal iem like westone 4r, more comfort, more extension
Gear mentioned in this thread:
Honestly IEMs with W4's shape is as comfy as it gets in my opinion. -- Unless you dislike over-the-ear cabling and prefer to run your cable straight down.
Sound wise I can only think of Sony EX-1000 -- it's definitely got deeper bass extension than W4 in my opinion -- but I doubt it's any more comfortable than W4.
In that case I think EarSonics SM3v2 will be right up your alley sound-wise -- But it has similar form factor to W4 lol.
