I have enjoyed my Etys for five years now. A big improvement was getting custom fit ear molds done by an audiologist. This was done at the same time as when I had Musician Ear plug molds made. I really do love these IEMs. My biggest complaints are the straight barrels stick out so far, ER really should redesign these so they are flush like all the newer IEMs. Also, while I can get the wires to stay reasonably well over the ear, again I'd love to see a design like newer IEMs. I definitely can't fault them for sound, which is why I haven't strayed. Something to be said for their simplicity.
Quick question for you...
Is it the custom mold ear tips that make them stick out?
