I haven't heard the HF5s myself, but chances are the issues you had with it you may still have with the ER4S. I think, for instance, you'd enjoy the ASG-2s more, or even a lot more perhaps. The ER4S signature is one that will not please everyone, or many people even (hence my comment last night of likening the 4S to KC). BUT, if you appreciate this type of signature, with stunningly good mids & treble, and very decent low end, you may really start to dig these phones, or they may be a compliment to your ASG2s. The ER4S, for instance, will not be my main IEM, but it sure will be used quite a bit by our grumpy friend.
As an aside, I'm happy to report fit is even easier / better this morning, a piece of cake, in fact (still not the most comfy IEM, but not having comfort issues). I think I'm rather fortunate in that sense because I can easily see these IEMs causing discomfort to other people.
Oh, nearly forgot, have I mentioned the midrange?
luisdent, I won't be EQ'ing my 4S until you declare the PFs are some of the best sounding IEMs out there — white lies have never hurt anyone, you know. Joking aside, I'm still really appreciating the 4S as is, possibly because many of the albums I enjoy are very well recorded and/or mastered. Might try some EQ'ing at a later stage, and when I do I'll report my findings.
