(clears urethra) While it's true that I haven't actually heard the E4, e5 or Super.Fi 5 Pro (now with extra punctuation), I remain convinced that everything but the ER-4S sounds like transvestite boot mucous. I say this to show I'm at the age when people of my advanced vintage worship their own unresearched opinions and claim the benefit of experience. Soon, I'll weep over the fact that Young Nostril has inhaled all the E. L. Fudge; for now, I'll content myself with mentally squirting the juice of my retinal disorder into threads that happen to make me feel puny like an aphid.

Furthermore, I promise to impersonate a grinning troll if anyone happens to call me stupid or make light of my being upset. I also promise to complain about the seconds of my life that were wasted reading Jasper994's post. I will do this repeatedly, I vow, in a response that will take me forty-seven minutes to write.

Jasper994: Any chance that someone at the national meet will be personing an IEM table with a drawerful of tips so that we may all respond to your observations with something like personal experience? I’m only asking, of course, because I assume you have no way of knowing. (If we should happen to meet, do encourage me to demonstrate the anti-jitter benefits of my uvea-goo-filled cane.)
Well, hmmm I'm pretty sure that both vendors will be on hand, but if necessary I can send my E5 and a pack of tips with Edwood (who has the ER4s, SF5P, and E4). I don't have extra tips for the SF5P though... I'll try to get hold of both Sugarfried and Mike Dias from Shure and UE to see if this is necessary.

Mike from UE just confirmed that they would indeed have all of the Super.Fi line available for you to see/hear at the National Meet.

Just got a PM back from Sugarfried (Matt). Shure will have all of the current line up available for you to listen to at the National Meet including the new E500. ARGH! I wish I could be there!!!

Thanks and a tip of the flange for that head-felt offer (stop touching my fontanel, Mr. Ritter).

As was not to be expected at the National Please Be Quiet, Please, I listened to the E500, UE10, E4c, Super.Fi 5 Pro, E3c and E2c (in order of preference, with my personal pair of ER-4S appearing just after the E4c). Suffice to gasp that I came home and promptly used a J&R gift card to buy a pair of E4c, which I've been listening to for the past several hours; they sound cleaner than a baby's garter belt; the meet had that effect.

However, I can't imagine choosing the Super.Fi over these, as the masked detail and tactlessly emphatic bass would irritate me to the point of beating Pavoratti to death with a copy of Taming Your Chest-Beating Lows the Woodhouse Way.
