Should I get one over the other??? (High end IEM - fit ear/ westone)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Just getting back in the hobby right now, so I don't have any equipment right now. But I'm looking for a portable setup that I can bring anywhere(from my house to the library etc.)
So I'm kinda stuck with two or three options(Can't do custom iem):

Either get the
  • FitEar To Go 334 without a dac/amp and will be used on my laptop/desktop out: My laptop is a macbook air and I built a desktop a few years ago. This choice is really pushing my budget...
  • get the fitear f111 with a dac amp(probably the RSA intruder/ALO international)
  • or get the westone 4R with a dac/amp like above.


Any suggestions are welcome...
Thanks a bunch.


EDIT: I listen to a wide range of music (Jazz, classical, EDM, pop, and yes country)

No idea about the FitEars, but the W4R is a safe bet.

On what do you base your selection. We have no idea of your sound sig preferences. 334 are more bass heavy with thick mids while are supposedly flatter (I haven't heard them). There are many other options in universals Tralucent 1plus2, Flat-4 Kaede, Aurisonics ASG2, Heir 5.0, RE400 and RE600, IE800, etc.

For about $400 you can have the Etymotic ER4 with custom-fit ear tips.
