So I am in deep thoughts about iem. And is there reason for buying such iems for iPod classic? The very important factor is isolation and the sounstage. Westone 4r sounds perfect, but I have know opportunity listen to customs.
Many thanks for your answers.
Having owned many universals, and then jumping into a few customs, I have gone back to universals.
Comfort on customs is a personal preference you won't know until you drop the cash on it. It might work for you or it might not. I find many universals more comfortable than shoving giant chunks of acrylic up your ears. But that's just me. Hopefully you nail the fit the first time too.
I think there are many universals that are just as good or better than the best customs.
The W4 has a great soundstage, and great isolation. To top the quality, you're going to need to spend quite a bit more. What's your budget for a custom?
I don't think customs necessarily have better soundstages. They might isolate a bit better, however.
