I had a pair of UE Triple.Fi 10 and I thought they sounded superb.

However, they are NOT comfortable or easy to fit!! I had to use the trick of switching the cables round (ie L in R and R in L ear without losing original stereo) to get a good seal.

However, I guess I used them on a cold day and the housing cracked. Cable feels horrible as well, really thick! Insane microphonics!

So, I somewhat reluctantly, dropped £320 on some Westone 4's!!

There is a definite increase in sound quality over the UE's. Separation is outstanding. Bass sounds phenomenal. Super comfortable and easy to get a good seal. Cable is nice and relatively low on microphonics (nothing is perfect).

Overall, even with the price tag, I'd say the Westone 4 experience gives way better value for money compared to the UE Triple.Fi 10's.

(I doubt anyone has ears good enough to tell the difference between the 4's and the 4R's but the removable cable option is always useful)
