Hi. I am getting Westone 4 Quad Driver Balanced Armature IEM for $100 in India. These were purchased by the seller in 2011 so around 12 years old. He claims he stored them in an airtight container free of moisture and humidity and Always cleaned before and after use. The accessory kit with the tips, cleaning tool and the volume attentuator would be provided.

Is it a good deal or not?

wow, the graph is...something...

I'd recommend going with something like Truthear Hexa instead

I don't know how to read the graph but I'm guessing it's... Bad?

Bloated bass leaking well into the mids, incredibly reduced treble, I'd avoid it unless you absolutely know you want that tuning.

pretty nice upper treble though not gonna lie lmao. everything else is horrendous though and you won’t even hear or appreciate the upper treble based on how the rest of the graph is

Seems a bit pricy. On the other hand, if he did take care of them they'll be fine. Do you want a quad BA?

Not really. Just thought it was a good deal.

Westone? No matter the price are not a good deal for the atrocities they do to midrange presence... You're better served with a Tripowin x HBB Olina SE u/Gobutobu

Yeah. The general consensus is largely negative on them. Got it.

I wouldn't pay 10 bucks.

Awful deal.
