The ER4S are only for those that can stand to have tiny earbuds drilled carefully into their ears. The HD600 offer the same and/or slightly better sound quality without being jammed into your ears.

Just did a brief listen on SHA-1 (Sylvania 7308's), comparing HD-600/Cardas, HP-1, and R10.
This was a quick listen, not any kind of review. I'm impressed by the HD-600/Melos combo. It's flawed, but the flaws don't interfere with the music. The HP-1 is better still. This is the headphone the SHA-1 was designed for, and it shows. The R10 did all the right things, but the brightness flaw is a nasty one, as it draws attention away from the music.

But aren't you really saying that the flaw lies in the Melos? Does this same flaw follow the R10 from amp to amp? With your impressive selection of amplifiers, you might have a unique perspective on this.

...I suggest that this “brightness” come out from another thing, not from the cans, certainly! I don’t know: the source or the amp used, or even the cables or power conditioner if installed. I repeat one time more: the R-10 needs a dedicated amplifier and a very Hi class source and cables. If not you cannot speak of this fabulous object correctly.

Now that they've caught the sniper (we both live in the area), maybe he'll have us back again sometime.
