Yes, the resistor is in the Y split of the cables.

Mind if I ask how you know this?

This is the Y-Split of an ER4P. (Some Korean guy opened it up).

Why does it say ER4P and there is SMD(I'm assuming those are the resistors?) on the path?  Maybe you can commission sombody to make you a cable or take the resistors out.  It shouldn't be difficult.

The resistor is only 7 ohms or something like that.

I don't know why they added 7ohms to the cable.  I wonder what it would do if you take the 7ohms out?  Anyhow I guess the different versions have different impedance value in the cable which adjust the FR.  It's not hard to take the 75ohms out and put in the 7ohms, just take time.  Of course, you need somebody that has worked with wiring and soldered before.

This would be very easy. If you're not worried about the middle section being a little "diy" in appearance you could easily make a cable. The hard thing to find is er4 driver adapters that don't suck.

I say, take the out 100ohms or whatever that's in there, and make the wire straight through and lift the bass lightly.  People keep saying raise the bass slightly and this would shut them up.  :D

 

Anybody every try taking the 7ohms out?  I would think it would lift the bass.

 

ER4B has the most treble lift and it's a bit complex to implement although can be done.  It's a network of 100ohm resistor and a capacitor to create a high pass filter.  I'm guessing this filter boosts the power output to the certain high frequency range.

The 4P is 18 ohms in added resistance. The FitEar F111 is an ED-29689 without resistance added (and the horn, of course).

Placed my order for my first ever ER-4PT.  I'm excited.  This will be my second (and hopefully last) set or IEMs.  :)  First was Re-Zeroes.

always use the s adapter. :-)  always. p isn't good enough ;) ;)

I hope the P to S adpater comes with it.  Ordered from Amazon and it wasn't very clear.

post #4633 of 4669

For my pair it was included.

Guys I've come back to my beloved ER4S. I don't know what came over me, but I'll never take her lovely consistency and linear benevolence for granted ever again. I'm sorry.

Bah! Er4 power!
