Basically you get a free auto EQ lol :P.
Ok, well I hope this isn't a stupid question, but is the issue going to be the same if using the etymotic cable with the IEMs it was designed for, the ER4Ps? I have the ER4Ps and was intending to buy the cable anyway.
I'm in the UK so buying the RWAK100 becomes a far more costly and long winded process than i'd like, so I'm tempted to pick up the AK over here and only send it over to Vinnie if I really have to. I need new cans anyway, so I'm open to purchasing something with a higher impedence that will suite the AK.
Other than the Tzar 350s are there any other obvious IEM options available?
and has anyone worked out why IRiver are still promoting the Shure SE425s on there site?
Be gentle with me, I'm new! lol
