I stand by my comments and weight the natural sound of the DBA over the more clinical and technical performance of the ER4. If you can provide a philosophic basis for how you weight one metric over another feel free. Many phones excel at putting checks in boxes. My highest weighted criteria is how a phone sounds compared to how my ears hear without phones.
I think ER4 is just really revealing. Pair it with a high quality warm, musical source and it will sound warm and musical.
