I would say probably not. You might hear some change as the silicon tips soften and you achieve a better fit or seal though, but primarily in bass response.

Anyone got a link to the red filters for the ER-4 with a good price? Seems like Etymotic's site is the only reputable place to get it.

Yeah I saw some grads and dads promo discounts, so I just brought the hf5s, some ear plugs, and the filters for about 150 USD. Thanks.

So, I need a new cable (sound cuts out if the cable is touched), since I'm in the UK If I return the drivers and cable (they refuse to just send a cable) to etymotic for replacement; cable + shipping + customs tax works out around £100-130, I've had several cables replaced over the years by them, there must be better options!

 

I know 5-6 years ago the Apuresound cables were considered a good option but I'm not sure they are still operating? (and they look quite weak, can anyone comment?), I've found two other options but I haven't found much info about them:

 

The "Silver Seagull" er4 upgrade cable (http://www.oyaide.com/zephone/ETYMOTIC/ee_4.html), anyone heard of these or even have one of these? 

 

Then aparantly Forz Audioworks will recable, i have only found this: http://www.soundbsessive.com/room/review-forza-audioworks-recable-for-etymotic-er4/ anyone else had them recable er4s?

 

I want to avoid the AWWAN adaptors, I had those on an old pair of er4s and I found them not to be very secure - I think this would be my last resort...

Recently got a pair of Zero Audio Tenores. Initial comparison vs. ER4S is very positive. We'll see how close it actually gets.

i understand you would need the awwan adaptor in order to use the westone cable, which is very easy but i found the adaptors to be a pain, they occasionally got loose and i found the more they came out and had to be reattached the looser the connection got - i ended up using some superglue.

funny how oyaide uses neutriks plug for their cable :/
post #4557 of 4761

I received my ER4S back today after an extended loan to Melbourne for about 1.5 months.

What a pleasure it is to hear their sound again.  :beerchug: All the time they were gone I had songs I'd been wanting to hear with them.

Here's the first one I played this morning.

Point me to some adapters, and I'll make you a similar cable with silver wire and the same neutrik connector cheaper. :-P

Quite a funny story to tell from this afternoon.

Having received my ER4S back from a long loan period I'd placed some new foam tips on and of course wanting to enjoy them had been listening from Tralucents DacAmp One (which sounds amazing btw). There I was happily listening away to Andrea Bocelli, browsing Head-fi without a care in the world. Though on the outside not to far away my flatmate had arrived home to a locked door knocking and knocking to get inside, he started kicking the door which of course got him no-where.

After that failed he went out the front and started screaming on the front lawn to let him in. Obviously with ER4S deeply in my ears and level of isolation I couldn't hear a damn thing. He was locked outside for a good 45 minutes before I finally took them off and discovered him absolutely furious! it was quite a strange sensation seeing him so infuriated when I'd been switched off the whole time.

Took him a good hour or two to get over it too.
