I have always been an Empire Ears person, and I still am....but the 64 Audio Fourte Blanc is amazing. It is up to the quality of my Evo's or Wraith. In fact, I think it surpasses the Wraith in all balance. It presents sound so clearly and distinctly. There is a separate area for the instruments in such a way, that it surprises me constantly. I always view an upgrade as successful, when I want to hear all my music all over again. The Fourte Blanc's do that for me. I also paired it with a substantial upgrade to a Electech Ode to Laura -- and it is just magic. I am totally impressed!
