Sorry about that anaxilus, that was a bit of a sweeping statement i made!-I take it back.
I am sure there are loads of universals that do compete on different levels.
I really like the ER4 sound, and then heard that recabling them makes them sound even better, so i tried it.
I never said they were perfect though, thats why i'm wondering where to go next.
JH13 have got really good reviews,and most people seem to agree,which is very unusual!
From what i have read,they seem to be the next real step up from ER4, which is what i'm after really.
Although, unfortunately WAY more than i can afford at the moment!
I think i should just be happy with what i have for now! ...
