Wow this looks so cool. I wish my Ety looks like this. I like the red and blue thingy like the good old days of Ety ER4S :D

post #3979 of 4231

Yep, looks very interesting but unfortunately Ety ER4S is not in Decibullz supported list

I'm using my er4p's with the ue900 airline adapter that came with the 900's does anyone here know how much resistance I'm adding to the er4's by using this adapter.? Is it more or less then the 75 ohm adapter that etymotic sells ? They sound great anyways 😃

Got my Comply Slim tips and have to applaud you guys are batting 4 for 4... they sound amazing and are very comfortable with the over the ears and the S converters and westone cable and red filters just keeps getting better.  The only trouble I had with them was pushing them onto the stem is very tight, almost felt I was damaging them just pushing them on.  And the foam tip projects about 2 mm past the end of the Ety plastic sound tubes. Do these need to be cut back a few mm to make them flush with the stems?  They sound great but i suspect part of the sound is getting pinched or absorbed by the foam on the way out and they don't fit in my ear as deep as I would expect for best sound.  They sound great with my WA7 and D100 though but then again there is plenty of power coming in.  How about with my ipod?

Nice! I definitely cut back the comply P when I used them. Keeps things a bit more clear imo.

I just purchased the Accudio Pro app and applied the ER4PT & ER4S reference EQ on my ER4 and I must say it does a damn fine job. Unfortunately that's my only praise for the app. You may read the rest of my rants in the thread below:

I'm curious: why are folks getting the Ps and cutting them back rather than just getting the Ts? Love my Ts and don't have to alter them (and the completely block outside noise).

Which model? Link please... would like to pick up some to compare.  After listening to the slims for about 3 hours my ears hurt very much the same as having the flanges in, but the sound is great still and it seams easier to get a good seal and similar left right fit every time.  Also it has removed the last of the microphonics.  Is much hard to judge how deep to insert them though.

just ordered the mixed sets of both the Ts and Tsx 100 in s/m/l to see which flavor suits me best.  Curious about the wax guard and if it affects sound.  Anyone know if these can be cleaned?  My original Ety foam tips got ugly quick and didn't work right after trying to clean them.

Anyone home??  Is the older ER-4S cable that had the blue and red highlights considered MORE microphonic than the newer twisted cables on the all-black models?

I just posted over there too but the Etys don't fit the rubber gasket that gets inserted into the mold. Plus as was stated above it's VERY shallow insertion so you wouldn't get the proper depth you need with Etys to sound good.

Yes, however the difference is supposed to be pretty small.  Both really benefit from over ear hacks or shirt clips...
