I currently use ER-4Ps straight out of my Droid when on the go. I'm not satisfied at all. A number of years ago I used an airhead connected to a discman which sounded so much better.

I could stretch a little but I really don't want things to get out of control. I listen to a wide variety of music from classical to classic rock to metal. I'm also open to getting the "S" adapter if it can fit in my...
ER4-P were my first "real" phones and I have yet to find anything that sound as good. Once you get used to the precise and neutral (and very deep) bass extension everything else sounds bloated and fake. I also agree that getting the insertion right is key but doing so is trivial once you get the hang of it. The first time I put these on I was like "so THIS is what I've been missing!" So so good.   In addition, the Etymotic customer service is exceptional. Similar to...
