Well said, it is important to use gels that don't isolate too much, it helps a lot. I would still not recommend them to those who seek balanced sound and high details with precision. With the right gels they are a lot of fun to listen and produce a good sound-stage.

I dont have the etymotic's but i got the Senn's. The IE8's don't have bass interferrering with other frequencies. Ive never tried, but apparently if you turn the Bass Tuner right up to highest, then you MAY notice a slight loss in mids cause of MASSIVE bass. But yeah these IEM's take anything you through at them!

The IE8s veiled the mids at any bass level for me.

Talk about bringing a thread back from the dead. 

 

I've had both, but my personal preference was that of the IE8's. The ER4's sounded amazing, but they weren't fun. The IE8's does do everything very well, from electro to folk it sounds amazing.

Even on the lowest setting the bass is veiled. But yeh this thread has been dead for 3 years
