Yes, it was already confirmed by a few people that W40 doesn't sound the same as W4R, and it has improved bass quantity.
Regarding UE900 vs W40 especially for hip-hop head, as you describe yourself - no question about W40 having an advantage of better bass, warmer sound, and overall smoother non-fatigue listening experience over extended period of time. You will still get all the details and transparency, and vocals sounds great! Beside, W40 has a better build quality and more ergonomic design. Nobody knows what's going on with UE900 since it looks like they are being phased out with either replacement or something else. The whole UE900 thread has been nothing but complains rather than appreciation.
