If you still love Etymotic ER4, this is the thread for you... - Page 72

A little math equation:  ER-4S + C5 + BT's "This Binary Universe" = Amazing.

I can't find the info! Maybe it's what the guy at etymotic told me when I called, I can't remember exactly. For what it's worth the photo on etymotic's own web page for the ER4 shows the all black cable and updated packaging.

Also thought I'd post some fit photos as a general reference for depth. With a full triple flange this sort of depth wasn't possible for me without a lot of pain. Cutting it to a double feels much better, and makes it possible to run, exercise, etc. without them coming loose.

Does that further improve the bass being closer to the eardrum?  My little mod, ha, is this:

 

 

AppleMark

 

Cut a small piece of notecard and wrapped it snugly around the two cables.  Wrapped tape around that a few times to make it thick and tough.  It works just as good as any cord sliding thing I've ever used.  It never slides on its own and helps reduce cable noise a bit.  With that and the shirt clip I have no cable noise, but I do most listening sitting.

That is awesome. I've been trying to figure out how to make a good slider since I got the ER4, and this never occurred to me!

 

As long as the nozzle gets to the second bend, the bass should be 100%.

I have really gained a whole new appreciation for my 4S's since getting my HM-801. The stock amp module in that drives them really well and it just all sounds so natural and vibrant. Loving it.

No matter what other isolating IEM's I have owned I still end up coming back to my venerable ER4S's!

Yeah, I was surprised at how it doesn't slide at all without being pulled on.  It works so well I forget I made it ;) haha.  How did you cut the flange off?  Knife, scissors?  I assume you want it as smooth as possible to not aggravate the ear?

A very small pocket knife with the scissor attachment works very well for small cuts. It's been quite handy for this hobby.

Does anyone know what type and quality resistors are used in the ER4S or the adapter cable for the ER4S/PT? The reason I ask is that I am contemplating getting the ER4PT, cutting off the 3.5mm plug and soldering my own 1/4" plug complete with the resistors (which I assume are simply in series for each of the channels). I can't helping thinking that by doing it myself, I will get a better connection to the amplifier's 1/4" stereo jack, since I would likely be using a better quality resistors that I can hand match, as well as dispensing with the 3.5mm to 1/4" adapter.

This is the Y-Split of an ER4P. (Some Korean guy opened it up).

Excellent. Thank you. Looking at that, I don't think it would be very hard at all to get better sound with a DIY approach.

Use Etys "Special Purchase" trade in plan. Significant savings...

Try for a used set on Amazon and use your own tips or course.
