 I too am perplexed by the Daft generation. The stuff reminds me of what they thought future music was going to sound like in soundracks from 70's B scifi.

 

I'm proudly uncool about this.

Express your opinion that you don't like it if you want, but you could do it with a bit more consideration for the opinions of others...

Express your opinion that you don't like it if you want, but keep the rude comments to yourself please.


Now hold on just a minute here. Both expressions were opinions and If you wish to play censor go start your own forum somewhere. Rude, well that would be the person attempting to exert some form of authority to censor posts where in fact, they have none. If you think there is some grievous harm done in the previous posts report them to a mod.

 

Once again thank god for the ignore user buttonbiggrin.gif

Wow, I immediately edited that post as I realized it probably "sounded" too harsh.  But nonetheless, you proved me right in the fact that you are a bigot.  They were opinions that anyone who didn't like the music was stupid.  That is not the appropriate type of opinion for a forum about music.  The appropriate opinion would be one of the music itself.  "I don't like it" or even "it sucks" would be fine.  Even better, explaining "why" you don't like it and be constructive or helpful.

 

"You can't teach people how to choose wisely" means they are not wise if they choose to listen to daft punk.  The opposite of wise is unwise, foolish, stupid, etc.  So you are saying that anyone who chooses to listen to daft punk is stupid?  Very mature.  Very intelligent.  I congratulate you on your superior music intellect.  "You're proudly uncool about it?"  Keep up the helpful "opinions" that you indeed "spout".

Thats a pretty narrow-minded POV in my opinion.

 

I don't like all types of music, but I don't judge anyone based on their taste.

 

I suspect that if you learned more about certain genres, you might actually gain an appreciation for them.

So many open minded people around, yet others still feel the need to ridicule. 

 

Oh well, you can't teach common courtesy/respect for fellow music lovers.

I'm starting to feel bad for these guys ;)  Let's start talking about the er4s again! :-)

 

The reason I mentioned that album in the first place is how great it sounds with them.  If you haven't heard it, it's a mix of 70's disco and modern electronic with some digitized vocals, some real vocals and a LOT of funky guitars! And the guitars sound so clear and distinct.  There are great kick drums that have a nice touch to them and the snares and cymbals are crisp but not overly bright.  Track two for instance have very realistic metallic cymbals in the intro.  There is some nice reverb on the snares and toms on that track that has a lot of depth.  I think they did an excellent job with the recording.  It isn't overly compressed like so much music today.  It's like they made it as loud as it needed to be and left it at that.

 

It has some great catchy beats and melodies and the mixing and production is very good.  There's a piano track in there, and as a pianist I'm very impressed with how intimate and realistic the piano sounds in the intro with the er4s.  It has such a real tone.  I highly recommend it to anyone who is willing to give it a chance.  It's like a throwback to the 70s while maintaining a modern touch.  I love the accompanying album art and theme they have with it too.  The comical helmets with nice suits.  ha.  Classic.

Guys I have to confess that I have recently been seeing another iem. Her name is ASG-2. She's really hot with a pretty round back side, but she doesn't have the brains of ER4S. I'm sorry I ever left and I want to come back.

Also luisdent I agree RAM sounds great on the ER4S.

What is this treachery?!?  hahaha.  kidding.  Have you heard the BASS in "doing it right?"  Wow.  The er4s hits some pretty low extended sub notes in my ears.  Crazy.

With some gentle nudging with an equalizer, sub notes become even more palpable... although I don't really care for sub-bass much.

Hi, I am new to this place so I hope it´s okay I post in this thread for a question. I´ve had my ER4 for more than 15 years but one channel is not working properly. Can anyone advice me if it is possible to repair them and if so which company. Many thanks in advance.

Welcome!

How about Etymotic Research themselves? I never had a chance to, but I hear their customer service is top notch. Even though yours is more than 15 years old, I think Etymotic will give you some kind of solution.

I can speak first hand for their service. I had my ER4S's repaired and the process was quite painless. Either email them or call and they will get you handled.

Have you tried changed the filters out? I know when I first got mine way back, my entire right channel went out at one point, and all I needed to do was replace the filter. If it's a more serious issue, then Etymotic is your best best.

The older ER4 suffered from a weak connection from cable to driver (mine are close to 20 years old now) so this is not an unusual issue. That said It will not hurt to change (or even just remove for test) the filters.
