Yep. Many have tried to troll it up in here. We smile and ignore for the most part. When you're satisfied, there's no need to compensate or defend biggrin.gif

I'm sure its not trolling when one counters claims that are made in this thread.

It seems like anything that has more bass than the Ety is "bloated" and "muddy", or anyone who thinks there should be more bass is a basshead.

But what IS the standard?  What is the ultimate reference?  We argue that question/point all the time here, with no definitive answer.  Every single implement that produces sound (earphone, loud speaker, etc) is interpreting audio signals according to their own design and preference.

 

If you and others don't like the bass-lite sound of the Ety products, that's OK.  I'm pretty sure most people here already know that about Ety phones, so the point is settled.

Does anyone have the custom ear tips with their ER4? I keep looking at them and thinking it might be nice but I think I am one of the rare ones who actually find the three flange tips really comfortable. What does the custom option bring to the table in terms of sound?

I think they sound very realistic, the only thing that is perhaps detrating from the Ety compared to a real life instrument is dynamics and crossfeed.

Yeah, in the end though they didnt call it an equivalent. I dont think Etymotic would cannibalize their own product, they just created a cheaper product for the masses to generate revenue, without the due diligence involved with the ER-4 series.

In the end the author can't tell much of a difference between them. Read the comment section.

"... I can't tell the difference between ER-4P and HF-3 either. That is why I think HF-3 is a better deal for common listeners! And the channel matching is extremely good..

There's always a sub-bass roll off with ER-4 series, whatever the version it is. Even though the manufacturer says ER-4 is of Hi-Fidelity, as a matter of fact, it is not only missing a substantial amount of sub-bass response, but also the frequency response above 18 kHz."

Author can't discern between "successor" and "predecessor", and I could easily tell the difference between my HF5 and ER4 when I had both...
