You're killing me ;-)
Still in may though? :-)
etydave discussed this a bit and it sounds to me as though the additional accuracy may be more subjective than objective. I don't mean that in a bad way, but it sounded as though they tried to improve the perceived accuracy by changing where aspects of the sound lay. We have no real details, but it was described as being better in one area at the cost of another possibly. Such as lowering a peak most might find objectionable at the cost of making the actual treble response...
If you like "synergy" that's cool. Sometimes, certain traits are preferred by certain listeners. I have a few nice desktop amps, such as my main apogee duet that is considered reference quality in the recording world, and i use a jds c5 amp for portable. I've a/b'd them extensively, and they are almost identical except the 32ohm duet might give a slight impression on being a touch more airy. But that's the impedance most likely shifting the treble, and it's incredibly...
I think i know what you mean. You could take away more bass but refine the upper treble. So the overall accuracy is the same, but some may think it's even more bass light and not as good... One treble peak isn't as objectionable as another treble peak, etc...As long as it doesn't sound any worse than the er4s....... ;-) see what i did there? :-P
I wasn't very clear throwing that in there, but I meant purely graph wise. The er4s claims to be 92% accurate with the er4p being 86%. I don't know how etymotic quantifies that, but i always assumed it was how close to the perfect target response graphing curve the actual measured response was.So i just meant that the new er4 was said to be "closer to the target response", so what percentage, by etymotic's standards used for the er4s, is the new er4 target accuracy? 93%?...
Can you comment on any other aspects of the sound improvement? You mentioned the new reference model is closer to your target, but the graph (i realize it isn't finalized) looks almost identical. Was it only a very minuscule 1% improvement? Or is there another area besides raw frequency response that has been improved?   Should we expect to hear a wider stereo image? It sounds like the harmonic distortion is comparable. Is there some other fancy audible improvement we...
Awesome. Thanks. The more info and high res graphs the better ;-) and honestly, thanks a million for taking your time up to talk to us here. It is really appreciated.I'm the most curious if it will feel cold in your ear when it's winter for instance. I assume the metal will conduct temperature more and need to be warmed up in such cases. But maybe it's not enough metal to make a difference? Or you won't feel it because the tip makes all of the contact with your ears and...
Will the new models, specifically the reference model, come with a frequency graph/channel matching compliance graph? And please make sure those graphs you're releasing are nice and high quality ;-) I'm sure this was already answered, but can i safely buy some foam tips for my current er4s, and know that they are exactly the same as what comes with the new models for when i get them?
I'm also curious how exact the two kidels are in the treble. As they are different drivers i would assume they aren't identical. But it will be interesting to compare them..
