Auditioned some Etymotics yesterday!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I was REALLY surprised to find one of my fellow students wearing the ER4S, especially since the Ety's are not available here.
These are simply incredible. The isolation is awesome, the sound is even better and they're very comfortable (with foam).

I think I will let go my plans of buying a Beyer DT770 or Senn HD580 and save all the way up for the Ety 4P's. Based on Daniel Pumphrey's reccomendations I will power them with a high-quality cmoy with an output-resistor (to get 4S sound).

Does anyone know where to get them in Europe? (my classmate's dad bought his on a trip to the US)

There are several in Europe. Try this link. We have a web site database problem but the static pages still work.

hm, only Denmark and Sweden..

and you'll need to get new green filters, tips etc when they wear out. lotsa hassle.

at more than twice the price of a HD580, they should be damn great IMO.

I'd love to hear them tho, but maybe not after someone else has been using them

Hey wab...what does your classmate listen to the ER4S through?

Have you tried hooking up your Cmoy to his Ety's? Maybe you shouldn't heh, Ety withdrawal can be a bad thing.

I can see the problem with geography...especially since its already such a niche product anyhow. But you really don't need to order any extra stuff often at all.

Also, UK and Italy
I could order some replacements along with'em so I wouldn't run out anytime soon. Trust me, they are very good. I think at least in the same league as the 580's and I really like their small size, isolation and portability.

He used a Panasonic PCDP. I had my cmoy with me so we tried the ety's with it from the line-out. The improvement was noticable, the sound became a lot cleaner.
