New iem's?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi guys. Just looking for any input from you guys...

I currently have a set of etymotic er4p's. They are the older style. Have sounded awesome for years. Recently the left channel quit working. Here is I am wondering... Should I

1. Send the er4p's back to etymotic for reconditioning?

Or

2. Buy a set of Klipsch?

Here's a little more info... I o lyrics use them when in airports or on airplanes traveling for work. I like a lot of acoustic style music, country, classical and jazz. I like my ety's and never had a complaint about them (even though most say they are weak in the low end... I do diagram but it has never bothered me either. The natural sound and the Soundstage more than make up for lack of bass...)

Also, I can get a CONSIDERABLE discount on anything Klipsch makes, so if considering the Klipsch option then price is no object.

Any opinions?

It's always better to buy new ones, as you can have a new experience with different things.

Agreed, but I also believe if it ain't broke don't fix it :-) was hoping someone has Compared both side by side and could highlight the bonuses of each. I've never heard Klipsch being compared to anything ety makes and would hate to buy a new set and hate them.

Which Klipsch model are you referring to? They have different sound signature for different IEMs.

Again, doesn't matter. For personal use I can get anything they make at a wicked discount... I have always loved my ety's so maybe someone experienced with Klipsch and also heard the ety's can recommend one that has a similar sound? Maybe a little more low end would be a nice addition which Klipsch does wonderfully in most of their other product lines. My KMC3 blue tooth speaker continues to impress me with the quality and amount of sound that comes out of that relatively small device :-)

Try sending it back.  I've sent a pair with a snapped tube and they replaced it and balanced the drivers for free.  Best customer service ever.  :etysmile:

I like the Klispch X11i. They have a rather flat sound signature. If you want more bass, then I guess the X7 or X10 would work better.

Lol that would be nice, however these are about 6 or 7 years old. Doubt they even have parts to rebuild these anymore, would probably just charge the 179 for a replacement set.

Are the x11i similar sound signature to the ety's?

Well I don't have the ety's anymore but from memory, the X11i sounds heavier on the bass. Recommend you to try them first before buying.smily_headphones1.gif

X7 does NOT have more bass. In fact it has the least bass amongst all the X series. The difference between X11i and X10 is very minute in terms of sound, with the bass being a little tighter. Other than that the other difference will be the square cables they use and the change in colour

Sorry, it should be X4. Thanks for pointing this out.
