Pros: Diffuse-field accuracy

Cons: Comfort

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 frequencies. ER-4B should be little too bright for normal recordings, but once you figure out how to utilize this with a binaural simulator, you'll see ER-4B is not in the league of headphones anymore, rather in the league of hi-fi speakers.

Etymotic Research ER4B MicroPro Binaural In-Ear Earphones
Description:

The ER-4 MicroPro earphones are the next best thing to live music, with noise isolation far surpassing that of active noise-canceling earphones. The ER-4s require no batteries, and can be plugged into any audio source. Their external noise exclusion - 35 dB with 3-flange eartips, 42 dB with foam eartips - allows you to hear the full dynamic range of recordings without having to play them at unnaturally high and unsafe levels.
