Compared with the ER-6, I find the ER-4s alot more comfortable, easier to seal & get used to. I got used to it after only 2 days use on the silicone tips . I haven't tried the foam tips yet though.
I don't need to lubricate the tips before insertion, however I do gently twist them in slightly in order to get a good seal which works for me.
One thing I don't appreciate though is the 'microphonic' effect which is really annoying to me & is a distraction to the great sound.

The microphonic effect is something that I've learned to accept if I use my ER-4P's for walking, although the "thump, thump" occlusion effect is a bit more disturbing. Of course, if I try anything else around noisy traffic, I don't get isolation.
It's a case of taking what little bad there is when using the Etys for moving with a LOT that's great when you have them inserted into your ears.
I think ER designed these to be used more for stationary situations moreso than active wear. Still, I'm in love.

The ER4 (P and S) sound much better than the ER-6; however, I find the ER-6 to be much more comfortable because of the smaller tips, and they are definitely not as microphonic.
