“let's keep this short, simple and sweet-just like the earphones being reviewed. Why are these things so good?? could it be the superb balance between lows, mids and highs? or the excellent isolation, that lets you enjoy your music at lower volumes while not skipping any of the details?? Are they deserving of the near-legendary status that has kept these phones relevant in today's $1000...” --dxps26
“ Etymotic Research HF5 Review The hf5 didn't fit well with my ears. I believe this is due to the long armature shafts and ear tip combo. Essentially, the sound port needed to be pointing at precisely the direct path of my ears to get a good sound, but this didn't happen with the normal fit position. This seems to be rare for most, but just something to note. ...” --luisdent

Bass/Fit: There...” --Racer24
“ For 20$ this is quite ridiculous. Balanced armatures are sweet EDIT-ok spending more time with these the sound is really something special. I'm not even using any fancy amps, heck this audio output is straight from my laptop(nice soundcard). Every note just begins and ends perfectly. Comfort is better with the stock "small" tip. Really the biggest turnoff for any person would be the...” --wafflezz

“ Nothing, not even a full-sized headphone, comes close to ER-4B in terms of tonal accuracy(diffuse-field). How accurate is it? Its target response is almost same as the one from the most up-to date study on the eardrum response in a diffuse-field. Although this product is advertised for binaural recordings only, it is basically same as ER-4S with the lack of room attenuation at the high...” --udauda
