Westone 4r + Ipod classic?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Good evening, 

Now I have ipod classic ( alac) + westone 4r

So, I am in strong doubt, is it worth to change the ipod for something else?

Next week I'm going for Listening and I need your advise. I've listened westone 4r with hifiman 602, but I am not impressed with it, sincerely I don't like this player.  

To what worth listening to? Or it completely useless with westone?

Definitely worth the change to a higher end DAP. After listening to my 4R with an AK120 (don't own one myself) and just now a DX50, I've found a new appreciation for my Westones. It just brings them to a new level. Don't give up on them just yet.

Definitely! This post taken from the 'Pictures of your portable rig' thread:

Perhaps you could ask this user for more detailed information. I've only had brief listening time with both, but they suit quite well from memory.

You could also look into the iBasso DX50. Sounds just as good for half the price.

Cowon Z2 + W4R is a great combo. The Z2 has many eq settings to play with if you dont like it without.
