Yeah the ER4 does sound unnaturally thin, for about half the genres of music. But it sounds perfect for the other half, especially live recordings and instrumentals.    When I put on some orchestral music, there shouldn't be boomy sounds from the cello and bass drum. It should should exactly like a cello and bass drum as you would expect to hear it in real life. 
I just got my set yesterday after coming from years of loving the etymotics. I wanted something a bit more bottom heavy. I have to say that I got way more than I bargained for. These are definitely bass monsters. The dynamic driver hits hard. Unfortunately, the bass amplification extends to the upper bass frequencies ~ 150Hz+ and it sounds overly boomy in many tracks. For rock and pop, they sound spectacular. Lots of detail, great instrument separation, with the hard...
I'm using these cables.http://www.ebay.com/itm/1-2M-Silver-Plated-Upgrade-Cable-Replacement-for-Shure-SE535-SE425-315-215-UE900-/171979530743?hash=item280ac761f7 I also bought some $60 6N OCC cables. It sounded the same to my ears. *shrugs*http://www.ebay.com/itm/6N-OCC-Hybrid-Copper-and-Silver-Plated-Cable-for-Shure-215-315-425-535-and-UE900-/221925530576?hash=item33abcadbd0:g:ZsAAAMXQAx9RLy7UThere was a double blind test done with cables and very few people could tell...
It costs me $50+shipping everytime I need to get the cable replaced. It breaks about once or twice a year for me. I ended up getting the right angle adapters from AWAN on ebay and a shure cable. I think the 90 degree angle is much more durable when I'm laying on the side and wearing it wrapped around my ear. A replacement shure cable only costs $20 on ebay, so if it breaks, it's a lot cheaper to replace. 
This guy is a genius at creating a spatial soundscape of sounds into music. It sounds amazing with the sublime separation and imaging of the etys. :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10Lan4tLZQA

$50 for a recabling.   I went the shure 90 degree angle adapter on ebay with a $20 silver plated cable after my stock one broke twice in a year. It's much better for wearing around the ears too.
I bought a custom cable on eBay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/321657056922?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT   One of the connectors is much looser than the other and the connection breaks apart easily. It takes about 1/3rd of the force to pull that connector off compared to the other side.   Has anyone had this happen to them? Did you come up with or find a fix?   Thanks.
The cables don't have a resistor, only the adapters do. I really enjoy the combo and would recommend it if you like to wear the earphones over your ears.
Do you guys hear crosstalk in this test? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTvJoYnpeRQ   I heard about 10% crosstalk with the stock Etymotic cable. I just bought these cables with the Shure MMXC adapters from AWWAN and there's ZERO crosstalk. http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?campid=5337413452&toolid=10001&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fitm%2F321657056922%3F_trksid%3Dp2057872.m2749.l2649%26ssPageName%3DSTRK%253AMEBIDX%253AIT It makes me wonder if...
