Westone 4R with Removable Cables Reviewed

HiFiChris posted a review on Head-Fi of the Westone 4R IEMs.   I am very surprised that this is the first review of the Westone since starting this site.  These were one of the first IEMs I purchased when I started getting back into IEMs.  I still use them regularly today and love them.



Pros: superb resolution, very wide soundstage, quick bass, comfort, case, accessories, cable, relaxed presentation if you’re into that
Cons: soundstage has got about no depth, 5 kHz dip makes the presentation very relaxed, sound signature not for everybody, short memory wire

RIVA S – High Performance Mobile Speaker

Moedawg140 has an extensive review of the RIVA S bluetooth mobile speaker on Head-Fi.  One of the interesting differentiators between RIVA S and other bluetooth speakers is that if you happen to have two  RIVA S speakers you can dedicated each RIVA S unit to a channel. Thereby, creating a true stereo effect.  It has all of the other features you would expect in a higher end mobile speaker including iOS remote control apps (Android coming), speakerphone capability and >10 hour battery time.
