Ditto, that certainly would be a welcome inclusion to a standard retail package. Although, i wonder just how much stock we can put in it.
Oh and I love my ck10s. They are my go to pair for classical and soundtracks. Never heard the Etys tho so must say I am suprised you feel they dont match up. Perhaps if it was the ER-4s you impression would be different?
I'll receive the adapter which converts the ER-4P to the ER-4S soon, so we'll see, I don't really want to comment on Ety until I get a good seal and everything =(, I need to try the different tips, but initially I'm surprised at how sibilant they are, and the lack of imaging.
I just opened up my RE0 box, I've listened to 10 or 11 songs so far, but my initial impressions are much higher than with the ER-4PT.
Everything is better than expected so far with the RE0, the cable, the housing (solid, metal), the included tips (I'm using the stiffish shure olive looking ones), and the sound, they sound like soft pillows, like running headlong into a wall of soft, delicate, high quality pillows. These are not a weaker ck10 to me, I can immediately hear qualities of a dynamic driver I sought after in the ck10 at times. The softness and delicate highs (like you want to tap them) are so nice, they just sound like exploding red flowers, or a girl with perfect satin-soft skin, with perfume drinking gin. Yeah, these sonic sine waves are touching the violin strings to my heart quickly.
p.s. I just went to the post-office and got all my new stuff and the X1051 wasn't there, user High_Q ripped me off, he has my ck10, what an idiot, hey Paul Park I bet you're reading this thread, I have your address and all your details you know... Currawong can you unban him please?
back to RE0.... just realised I have my Teclast T51 on max volume.... hmm these need some juice to sound good.... but the sound is really melting in my ears and dripping onto my soul strings. Kinda worried what the J-phonic will sound like now Lol.....
Edit: wow if the line between sibilance and clarity is a thin one the RE0 is walking on it, what a perfect treble, jeez I didn't expect this... just goes to show 1000 travel books are not worth the journey.
