Etymotic Eartips

Hey Head-fiers,

 

I'm in need of a pair of medium triple-flange tips. Anyone have a pair they'd be willing to let go of?

 

Thanks!

Thanks for the link, but I'm not really interested on having several pairs of the same thing.

As an owner of an Etymotic ER-4p and Er-6i, there is a reason they sell these guys in ten packs (or more than one pair). After extended use, the silicon tips wear out where they attach to the earphone. Once worn out, when you remove the earphone, the silicone tip stays attached to your ear but separates from the earphone. 

 

Simply put, over time, the silicone tips lose their ability to stay attached to the earphones.

Agreed. Random question, but why do you have both the ER4-P and Er-6i? I have had the ER4P/PT/B/S but never the ER6i. Wondering what the sonic differences are and what benefits you see in them vs. the ER4s.

 

Thanks.

The ER-6i were the somewhat inexpensive headphones that I never really cared about breaking. I own them for use at the gym and they're very comfortable to use while lying down (they have a very low profile). When I bought them, I didn't own the ER-4P, and due to their sound signature, they were my reason for buying ER-4P. 

 

I'm not great at explaining sound characteristics, which is probably one reason why I'm not not more active on these forums, but I'll try. I don't have my ER-6i with me right now for a side by side comparison, though i'll give it a shot from memory. The ER-6i, when compared to the ER-4p, has a veiled sound signature. The two sound fairly similar through the vocal range, but after that the ER-6i drops off a bit, taking one a veiled characteristic. The ER-4P seems very transparent next to the ER-6i and is the clear winner. Either way, the ER-6i has been out of production for a few years now.
