If you still love Etymotic ER4, this is the thread for you... - Page 700

post #10486 of 10506
Got my ER4P/S in 2013, and while I have since purchased a pair of arguably 'higher end' ciems, I still find the ER4 part of my iem rotation. They're that good, and are built like a tank. I don't even place them in a case.

Seriously sounds too good to be true to save that much by sending them something that's been stashed away in a drawer for 3 years (since I got ER-4PT)

I would keep the ER4P if I were you because memories. $75 isnt enough to get the ER4P again if you wish to

I agree that I personally wouldn't trade in my ER4P's for the new ones. And that's without hearing the new ones. For me it's worth the $75 to keep a known good set of backups. YMMV.

 

Also I just bought an Apogee Groove. Has anyone else tried on of these with their Ety's? I'm pretty impressed. Dead black background. Seems to have more low end punch and possibly a wider soundstage, but honestly it's been a while since I listened to these. I've been a bit of prodigal son trying out others, but coming back to still appreciate how nice these are. But this little thing has some great synergy with these IMO.

I didn't trade in my only pair of ER-4's - I still have a lovely pair of ER-PTs that are my current primary.

Told you I'm an Ety lover

Hey, are any of you going to Axpona this year?  I'm going to be attending for a couple of days.

ER4P != ER4PT

Hey Dave, or anyone,
If I send in my old frayed cable blue, red, green er4p in for recabling, can it be changed to the S cable? I'd really hope to keep the same barrels/earpieces (is that what they're called?), but could use a new cable.

The serial numbers of my new er4b ends with 29 and 40. I remember those on my last er4s were next to each other. 

Is this also normal?

I believe so, I thought they were all channel matched, and consecutive serials are seldom matched.

This is correct.  Once in a while you'll find a set with consecutive numbers, but it's more common that they won't be.  The most important thing is the channel matching.

thanks for the reply

Folks, quick question - where do you guys source the adapters for the transducers to use them with standard stock replacement cables?

 

I noticed that the new style adapters with a more ergonomic style had come out (or at least the housings for them). Are the new shape on the market anywhere yet?

 

Sorry to be a pest - I'm forever looking to make marginal improvements as this is gonna forever be my travel/work rig (or should I say rigs plural).

Oh and also, ACS have stopped doing the custom tips - any idea who does them now? Anyone?

Snugs in the uk will at £179, or Custom Art in poland might.

I have Snugs tips (though for a different earphone), and I can attest they do quality work.
