Recabled ER4P Or monster cable Turbine pro copper? - Page 2

post #16 of 21
Thread Starter 

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!  etysmile.gif ...

Spent yesterday evening using ER4P and UE Reference monitors, the ER4P are still a fantastic option for those that want to stay <$200.

Hm I have an idea if you're bored, get a triple fi, have them reshelled by Fischer to mold to your ear, and get upgraded cables for them?

You'd basically have a 3 armature custom-molded IEM, with silver wired cables and a Neutrik plug of your choice, not only that but they would be the best looking IEM's on the block since Fischer does graphics and offers your shells in any color you want?

The original triple fi is the most balanced earphone I've ever listened to before I got into any fancy boutique brands that are out today. I'm sure others will chime in.

Balanced like a 'V'  with one note bass and recessed mids if that's what you mean.  That idea is still around a $400 proposition (iem, reshell, cable, connector).  Just get a JH5 or 1964 ears custom.

Yeah I've been out of the head-fi game for a while. I think I dropped off right as JH audio was getting popular, I think that would be a much better option with much more support if anything goes wrong...

I should give those a try then!

You may end up liking the sound, but it is also possible that after the etys the MTPC will be too bass heavy for your tastes. Whether you like the new set of earphones is going to be a gamble.


"Purposely reduces bass in order to artifically boost detail?" Sorry, but I think you're way off base on that. Since when does not having a boosted mid & sub-bass = bass reduction & artificial detail? Trust me, the ER4's have plenty of bass that's of excellent quality w/ no roll-off whatsoever, unlike the MTPs & TF10s.
