If you still love Etymotic ER4, this is the thread for you... - Page 270

Yes luisdent, very very practical way. I'm off to get myself an Altoid today.
post #4037 of 5029

Love the altoids tin idea... will switch to using that for sure.  Especially with the over the ear adapters andwestone cable it no longer fits in the soft puch very well and I don't want to have to constantly re-bend the cable around the ears.

Yeah, it's been working great for me.  In fact....

ER4S on the left, PFE112 on the right. :-P haha  You should see the included pfe case.  It's smaller than the er4s pouch. :-o

Comply Ts100 arrived and the small fits both the stem and my ear very well.  a bit fatter then the slims but doesn't cause more ear pressure inside, just more foam seems to fit snug and not having to cut them back they are sized perfectly to allow the nozzle of the stem to avoid the foam.  Perfect fit actually.  Still have not received the wax filter Tsx versions yet but very happy with the Ts100 small.  Wish I would have gotten 3 of these instead of mixed.

Sorry, I am sure you have mentioned this before, but what programs are you using?

post #4044 of 5029
Any good eq app should sound the same if you use the correct bandwidth/q type. I use a bunch. Accudio has an amazing quality eq. You don't need to buy it or use the headphone sims. You can make one custom eq or buy it and make more. I used to use denon eq, but it isn't easy to enter values, and i don't think they use a standard db scale. On the mac i use the mac audio units. I think one is called band pass eq or something. I use an eq in logic pro, i use the rockbox eq. I've tried other apps on both ipod and mac, but i find these the simplest and best. The audio unit lets me use the eq system-wide on the mac...

So I dove on a pair finally :) Hopefully my X3 will like them!

 

Now I'm looking at these nifty right angle Ety/Westone adapters, anyone tried them?

post #4046 of 5029

They're good out of the x3 - I've been using the ER4S on high gain and enjoying it a lot.

 

On another note, does anyone have suggestions for Custom IEMs that have a similar signature to the ER4? I know about the UERM but what others are out there?

I'm using custom ear tips for the ER4 as ordered through their website.  I'm quite happy with the fit from the audiologist, just wishing the ER4 was a better form factor, more like custom IEMs.

 

 In other news, I just sent my back to the mothership for repair (love that that is even an option since they are 7 years old!), I managed to crack one of the tubes trying to get a filter out.

Epic etymotic service strikes again!

Quick Question all: I've read that the ER4PT has better driver matching than the ER4S. I currently have both a sealed ER4S and a ER4PT and obviously will only keep one. I've been bouncing back and forth. What do you think is the ultimate in sound quality: the better matched drivers of the ER4PT but using the P to S adapter when amped, which would be almost always, or the ER4S, which doesn't need the P to S cable but may not have as closely matched drivers. Thanks for any advice!

The ER4S is matched just like the ER4PT,just the ER4PT has the included graph. Where did you hear the ER4S is not as accurately matched?
