The Westone 4 is an excellent earphone but I still prefer the SM3. Drier presentation, faster feeling treble with a tiny bit of sparkle, and bass like a dynamic.

I was in the same position as you are. I went to over-ears. Well, not quiet, but over-ears does perform better.

Have you considered customs? That might be the only way to go at this point.

The upcoming ASG-2 might be worth considering.  It's out around the end of January I believe.

Jvc fxz200 is worth a look, it has a very rich sound not to mention a built in sub.
