I thought Etymotic can do better than that with out-of-warranty iem. Unless they changed their policy, I was able to be a brand new, retail version (all accessories and sealed box) of the ER4S (I was able to specifically choose the ER4S from the ER4PT) for the out-of-warranty program price of $179+shipping when my out-of-warranty HF2 got damaged early last year. I didn't ask about the warranty on the ER4S, but since it was brand new and sealed, directly from Etymotic, I assumed it carried the usual 2-year warranty.

Gear mentioned in this thread:
The warranty (or lack of one) on the replaced item surprised me a bit too. She said that the warranty was for two years from the date of original purchase. I hope the replacement (that they still consider an out of warranty repair) works properly, but even if it doesn't I don't expect any difficulty getting any issue resolved with Etymotic.
You could buy all the accessories for not much more. :-) you must stll have yours too though anyway right? :-o
Certianly hear a difference with ER4S between 16bit and 24bit, they're detail monsters.
plz not the 16 vs 24bit troll again. most of the differences are due to different masterings not to 8more bits of silence.
but yeah the er4 is a detail monster, that is very true.
Its difficult to get a picture in my mind about the level of detail these iems have, not being able to demo then myself. I wasn't intending my post as a troll.
Once my ears gets used to the er4s sound, every other iems/headphones sound so much coloured it is not even funny. I can almost visualize the peaks and valleys in their frequency response relative to the flat er4s.
I have tried/owned many iems so far and nothing can compete in terms of clarity/cohesiveness/resolution with er4s. The only iem which did better was the NT6 pro demo, but that's a different level of playing field altogether, right?
I also seem to be the odd one out in that I find the triple flange fit quite well fitting and comfortable enough for really long stretches of listening periods :-)
As reference i mix and master music. I've done a lot of resampling. The biggest improvement is during the recording process and even then it is small.
Regarding flatness once i'm used to my eq setting the er4s sounds colored ;-). At least in that it lacks sub bass a bit and a bit of openness. I can't go back. Ha. But it's the flattest thing out there which is why eq works so well with it.,,

I decided to try the 'slim' comply P tips, since the medium where still a little uncomfortable after a while. Finally a comfortable fit with the best sound possible. With these tips they almost disappear (in sight and comfort).
slim comply P's, wearing down, using the shirt clip, a little EQ- finally satisfaction.
