EDIT: Can anyone comment on etymotic's customer service? Are they friendly?

 

Maybe you should use the tri-flanges (LOL). Anyway it's not because they need an amp that's why the punch and impact is weak. The ER-4P doesn't need an amp but it is weak as well. I guess the ER-4 are meant to take accuracy over bass and impact. So that's the sound signature of them. But then again, I think the HF5's impact is stronger.

I absolutely find these to be one of the best headphones ever made.  If you amp the ER4-S, you might as well put on the nicest pair of over-ear cans you think off.  They are perfect.  I am using my e11 and it more than suffices for the amount of power these hogs draw.  They sound is unlike anything I've ever heard.  The soundstage is HUGE... the bass is punchy and has some rumble now that I have the bass eq'd to make up for the loss.  The gain makes them sound like the fullest sounding earphone ever. I have never loved an item.  But I may love these.

Well, glad to see you like them. Cool how they have soundstage when they are amped, because the soundstage seems very close. The UM3x however, is closer to my ears.

Well, not is still the "honeymoon" stage. You would have to take some time to determine if you will get bored of them or not.

they are infact in Britain.  How do demos work?? They keep your credit card on file??? So they charge you if you dont give them back? I would never steal them. But the whole system is misty to me.
