Hi, I was looking to go up the IEM tier from my GR07 MK2 and was wondering if the Westone 4R would be worth the upgrade. I can get the Westones for 320 dollars new.
Additionally, any information on the difference in soundstage/ sound quality (warmth, bass, mids treble etc) between the two would be appreciated.
I don't know if the following information would help, but...
I've had the HiFIMan RE0, which was good, but the bass had too little impact. Maybe almost too balanced
The GR07 has treated me very well, and I really do like it. The bass is quite fine, but the low base could be a bit more impactful. The mid to high treble seem to be perfect.
I also have a Sennheiser HD598 for over the ear, which I also really like.
If I had to say, I would prefer a bit of darkness over it being too bright.
Lastly, I listen to all types of music except country. My current trend is Jpop, trance, alternative and a bit of melodic death metal.
