Please help with a replacement cable for my ER4P

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I need a new cable for my out-of-warranty ER4P. I think I have narrowed it down to two choices.

 

- An actual ER4P cable for $85:

or

 

- A Shure cable for $30:

- and the adapters for $34:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/ETYMOTIC-ER4-IN-EARPHONE-CABLE-ADAPTOR-P-SHURE-CABLE-VERSION-/290630811020?pt=US_Audio_Cables_Adapters&hash=item43aaf23d8c

 

I'm saving $20 with the Shure cable and the adapter, but I am adding more splices in my signal path.

 

Does anyone know anything about these products or the sellers?

Any opinions?

 

Thanks

Why not an Etymotic Service and cable for 50 bucks plus freight?

Are the new Ety cables better than they were 2 years ago? Mine has always been so stiff and noisy. I have thought about upgrading for a while now.

There were three versions that I am aware of.

 

The latest, Have a twisted two pair of wires going to each ear piece.

 

Repair, and sell if you are tired of them...
