If you still love Etymotic ER4, this is the thread for you... - Page 301

Well, you know how I feel about value if you're read these threads. While it's not common, there are some surprising values that sound amazing. Things like the  re400 and the MH1.

 

However, I have to be completely honest, not even those compare to the unbelievable value of the zero audio tenores. I paid $55 for mine including shipping on an ebay store with great feedback. I've been listening to them non-stop since I got them (LITERALLY) Other than sleeping, but I listened to them as I fell asleep. haha

 

How do they sound? My pair sounds so much like the er4s, if I listen to lighter acoustic music it would be easy to forget I wasn't listening to the er4s with red filters. But when the music demands it, the tenores pull out perfect bass. I'm talking, excellent, high quality,  perfect quantity bass. So to me, these are EXACTLY what I've been looking for; an er4s with better bass/sub bass.

 

The bass doesn't bleed or mask at all. The treble extends even a bit higher than the er4s giving a little more air to things. For those who like such things, there is a graph floating on the zero thread that completely corroborates this. Needless to say, these sound just as good as the er4s in every way to my ears, and then improve upon the bass and treble extension. Time will tell how they hold up physically, etc. etc. But audio-wise, these are everything I've been looking for. I think my search is done.

 

I wish etymotic would take this iem and examine it and see what can be done with a single driver unit. Not everyone agrees on bass levels, etc. but this thing is almost like having an er4s with my bass eq, but it still sounds better, because the bass just sounds more detailed. Kick drums give off a realistic thwamp and kick that sound incredible but the midbass is beautifully open and clean. Not bloated like the mh1. I highly recommend these to anyone looking for an er4s alternative. Are they more accurate? That's hard to say. They meet the accuracy of the er4s to my ears and fix the things I find as flaws. But either way, they are the closest things to the er4s in neutrality and quality I've ever heard and are easily the closest alternative for those who value those traits...

I got all four of mine here:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/251515463227?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

 

The ebay seller seems nice and has good ratings, and my pair was excellent. I'l;l see how the next three sound. :-) He just got more in stock.

Yeah, i'm selling other iems. I NEED a backup or two of these. They're that good. And one for a gift or something later. :-)

I'm kind of nit picking here, but do they no longer come with an airline adapter? I just recieved my ER-4PT earlier fulfilled by Amazon, and I don't see it anywhere.

 

Not really that big of a deal, but I do want to know if I just missed it somewhere...

I received my ER4PT with the airline adapter. Try contacting Amazon regarding your missing adapter.

Etymotic will fix out of warranty ER4's for a fee, prices found here. Also recommend the Zero Audio Tenore as an ER4 replacement. It has very similar FR with more bass. They can be had for ~$60 including shipping usually.

Thanks a million gnarlsagan. The right bud has stopped working altogether now. Is it possible to get the earbuds terminated so that i can use a detachable cable with the ERs? I would prefer this over sending back to get the cable redone. OR would i need to find somebody in Ireland to do this work?

These better be as good as you guys are saying!

I need help people. The left piece of my ER4 got soaked up in my sweat when I carelessly put them inside my shirt when I was working today. When I wanted to listen to it after I finished my job, only about 10% of sound came out of the left earpiece. I used small, pointy things to clear up the filter and it got to about 40-50% of volume now but not fully recovered. Did I just killed my beloved ER4 or will it return to its best after being left dry for a few days?

Did you try new filters?

Definitely try new filters. I can't imagine sweat would get through them and damage the driver unless maybe you soaked them in a cup. :-P The filter probably dried a bit and the sound got better, but it's probably ruined. I would replace them.

Haven't tried yet, but I'll do it today. I'll let you people know when I done it. Thanks for now, people.

post #4514 of 5574

I switched to new filters today and my beloved ER4 is back to its best. Thank God. Thanks to you guys for reminding me of the filters. I don't know why I didn't thought of doing that. Probably I was to panicked that I could have killed it permanently. I'm still very thankful to this day that I got this for less than half the price when somebody was willing to sell it that cheap. I can never buy it in full price.
