Adding to the cable discussion.  I made my cables just for comfort and elimination of microphonics.  However I do notice that I get better channel separation and wider soundstage.  It probably has to do with crosstalk difference between the two cables.   I can't say I understand it but I think it has to do with the signal from one side of the output amp bleeding into the other side's output amp path to ground through the ground wire.  So in theory if we have separate...
No difference in sound, but a whole lot more comfortable.  
You would have to put them in series on the signal side which is the thin post and the ground is the thicker post.  Use 25 Ohms for a ER4PT sound or a 100 Ohms for the ER4S sound.  The tip of the jack is the left channel, middle is the right channel and the outside is ground. Look at my post on http://www.head-fi.org/t/538615/if-you-still-love-etymotic-er4-this-is-the-thread-for-you/5610#post_11411686  about where I got the resistors and what cable I used. I really love...
The thin pin is the signal wire while the fat pin is the ground.
The ER4S has a 100ohms resistor in the cable while the ER4PT cable has a 25ohm.  The adapter that converts the ER4PT into a ER4S has a 75ohms therefore bringing the total resistance to 100ohms.     There is a ground and signal wires pair going to each bud.  You put the resistor on the signal wire in series going into the bud.  The tip of the 3.5mm jack is the left channel, the middle is the right channel, while the outside is ground which is common for both...
Hi All   I finish building a cable for my er4-pt with imbedded 100ohms resistors.  I got a set or Male Headset Pins from http://www.lunashops.com/goods.php?id=4079   The holes were not completely aligned with the ER4-PT, I had to drill to widen one of them so that the will align.    I got the 100 ohm resistor from digikey http://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/0/985-1291-1-ND Soldered the resistor on one of the pads .    The cable I got from...
HiDo you have a link for getting the westone cable?
Hi all I just got an EX1000. Sounds really good but the right side is louder than the left. Do you think burn in will fix this or should I get warranty repair from Sony?
I used have the SE530 for many years and now I have had the SM3 V1 for about three years.  The sound signature is quite similar; however, there is more bass and treble extension and more instrumentation separation.  I had to re-rip all my 128kb tracks to 320kb because SM3 is much more detailed.    However, the SM3 V1 build quality is not that great.  I think the V2 is better. 
That is genius!  Thanks
