Twister 6 posted a review of the custom Weston ES80 8BA driver IEM over on Head-Fi.  From the review it sounds like Westone is moving away from laid back sound signature to a more audiophile neutral.

Review of DUNU DK-3001 Hybrid IEM

George Dobrescu posted an extensive review of the DK-3001 over on Head-Fi.  From the review it sounds like a great 3BA/1dynamic driver IEM.  Priced around $500, it is middle of the road for a quad-driver IEM.

Pros – Relaxed Signature, Smooth Sound, Strong Bass, Large Soundstage, Good Instrument Separation, Good Comfort, Large Number of Accessories Included, Useful Carrying Case, Great Value, Musical, Romantic, Natural
Cons – A tad too polite for metal music, The sound Might be too relaxed for some.

Pros – Stunningly balanced, Exceptionally linear bass and midrange, Very detailed, Great soundstage depth and imaging, Perfect comfort

Etymotic ER4-XR & ER4-SR IEM Review

Lieven posted a review of the newish ER4-XR and SR IEM over on Headfonia.  They have a bit of a bass boost from the original ER4-S.  Read the review of the for your by clicking the link below.  Personally, I’m sticking with my 2003 ER4-S and if I need more bass I’ll EQ it.   Interestingly, the original S and P models are going for about the same price as the XR and ST models.

Havi B3 Pro II IEM Review

B9Scrambler posted on Head-Fi a review of the updated IEM Havi B3 Pro called the Pro II.  The Pro II has a bit more bass than the originals but from the review it sounds like the change didn’t overpower the positives of the original.  However, if you are looking for a neutralish treble forward IEM the Pro is likely your choice.

Pros – Punchy low end – Excellent clarity and detail – Immersive soundstage
Cons – At their best when amped
