Well, I'll try to dedicate some time for the review and hopefully finish it this week. I did lose time waiting for some tips and the Ortofon ones kinda caught me off guard coz now I have to take into account how they make the N4 sound. Also, I was kinda split between which tips to use with the N4 - the stock dark blue ones or the ortofon ones but in the end I should take advantage of the option to change the sound and use them both depending on my mood.
Now, I haven't heard F111 but I know it's supposed to be an er4s tribute (if I'm not wrong it uses the same drivers) but judging by its measurement it has more bass and more laid back and lower on sparkle highs. The N4 with the stock tips has a weightier and thicker low end and a bit thicker and more realistic overall sound than er4s while still highly detailed might be what you're looking. You can also get the ortofon tips and turn the N4 into a more analytical iem with leaner and cooler sound and more transparent and rawer presentation if transparency and clarity are your main priority. Either way, the N4 is a fine iem that is easily driven and sounds great.
