Selling my Heir Audio IEMs and have been offered the LS4 as a trade option. I already have the UM Mage and am not sure how much different the LS4 is.

Is there any major difference between the two?

Is it worth getting the Rooth?

I wouldn't worry; they should be quite different. The LS4 is thicker in the bass, and slightly relaxed in the treble, while being more prominent and upfront in the midrange. I'd say the midrange is more accurate than the Mage's..

 

You should have the Mage FR, right? This is an example of the LS4:

 

 

I actually quite enjoy the LS4 for its type of signature.

 

The Mage is, well, let's just say I think the Miracle sounds nicer.

Tom, your are a legend.

Now if you don't mind me asking you one last question, what would you recommend between the new Dunu DN2000 and $100 or the Rooth LS4 in exchange for my Heir Audio 5.0s?

I've heard that the Dunu sounds like a tad more bassy Westone 4 (which I have never heard but want to thanks to its reputation).

Any suggestions there?

The Dunu DN-1000 is better than the W4 IMO, with more bass and better clarity, but the DN-2000 completely destroys it.

Sorry, can't help you here; I haven't heard the DN-2000. I do like the DN-1000, though.

 

I also haven't heard the 5.0, so it's difficult for me to make any recommendation one way or another.

 

Average_Joe also has impressions of the LS4, so you can consult that to help you make a decision as well.
