Instead of speaking about an earphone you haven't heard yourself, which you happen to label as "pretty terrible", perhaps it'd be (much) more helpful, objective and rigorous on your part to tell the original poster (OP) there are plenty of people who happen to love the SM64, but that just over 24 hrs ago there were some measurements published (using a defective set, BTW) that the OP should be aware of.
Might also be worth reminding the OP that the ER-4S requires a very deep insertion to get the best SQ and that many find such type of fit terribly uncomfortable, and that an amp seems to be required for the 4S (but not for the 4P).
I'd also ask the OP which phone of the ones he owns he enjoys the most.

That said, if I was the OP, I'd probably get the ER-4S (not the 4P), simply because it's a legendary IEM that is still considered a reference IEM by many. But, I'd also warn the OP that in the end he may not be all that impressed, that he may find himself enjoying some of the IEMs already in his possession (much) more, as there are plenty of people who, no matter how reference / legendary the ER-4S may be, they prefer other phones because they found the ER-4S too analytical, cold, treble-happy and bass light.
