Ane Brun + ER4S + Studio V
Not far from the damn truth! Love my Ety's!
I wouldn't say a basshead's phone. :-P Maybe a critical listener who prefers bass over perfect treble accuracy though.... Anyone want to send me a pair to sample? ;) hehehe
Here's a few photos, because I'm a geek. What can I say? These two things made my trip so much more awesome...
Rockbox gives me the crazy eyes! Because it's so awesome. (That's an 8gb clip zip with a 64gb card working flawlessly. Roughly 72gb of awesome!)
A stupid meme for ER4S lovers. haha...
How I've been listening to the ER4S portably. Clipped to my sling pack strap. Very awesome. Now I just need the cord wrapper to tidy up the excess cable... For now I tucked it under the strap...
I use ER4S with custom molds, Jan Meir Corda 2Stepdance, modded A&K100 or an imod 5.5 gen ipod.
I love these IEMs, I travel a lot and rather not fly without them. Good bye screaming kids, talkative passengers and annoying others, no need for noise reduction distortion. I just insert these IEMs and I am off to the land of music. I red the LinkWitz Eq of 2.5kHz and 7.5kHz, a very subjective paper. I have played with the notch filtering a bit, and find that the 7.5kHz (A#8) does take some of the sharp highs down, but I don't find it is needed, for me it is only about 3dB high. I don't hear the 2.5kHz peak he talked about. I listen to AIF's, FLAC and lots of HD music, even after many years of use, I am still amazed at how wonderful these ER4S really are. I have also wrapped the cable over my ears and use the clip to reduct the microphonics, but I wish the cables were a bit shorter, softer and more flexible. I have wasted to much money and time on lesser IEMs and have concluded that my ER4S IEMs are all I need and want for my travels. I find that I even listen to them at home, as they compete for my us with a collection of many fine headphones. I find that I like them with a bit of cross feed filtering too, not to reduce fatigue but to just widen the stage moderately. I never use them without an amp, if they are not driven correctly they loose stage, presence and overall quality of sound, IMHO.
Very interesting. I ordered a set of ER-4PT from AccessoryJack about a week ago. Very surprised to find a P-S adaptor in the package as well. I thought you had to buy to as a separate accessory?
