Ok I'll make it short. I came down to those 2 IEM's i dont care about any other than those . I love powerful vocals , guitar and clarity. I hate when the sound gets muddy etc. Which one of those will be better for casual listenig to f.e. Florence + The machine, Arctic Monkeys etc. . I dont think i would really mind the soundstage being small , but i have never had a high end IEM so if it does make a difference than id like to know. + I dont care about the price, dont look at that. I would buy the Westone 4 but does it handl EQ well ? Im buying a Fiio X3 so Hardware Treble/Bass adjustment can make the W4s sound actually fun and engaging ?
UM3X , Westone 4

I'm not sure about EQ. The UM3X is much more of a stage monitor with rolled off treble and an unpleasant mid bass hump, though it does do vocals and guitars well. It's great for rock. The W4 has a wider soundstage and is great for rock, plus all the other genres! It is technically better, imo.
