    If you still love Etymotic ER4, this is the thread for you...

    My new cable arrived yesterday, and my broken ER4S are now working and sounding amazing again. Thank you so much to cliOS for the cable recommendation!-Really appreciate that. I actually have an old pair of ER4P that need a new cable too. Would that cable i bought turn them into ER4S because...

    Agh,I wasn't sure if i would get any replies,so i took the plunge and bought the cable anyway. I knew i should have waited,Am slighly worried now! I had an issue before with the nozzle part snapping off while changing the tips on an older pair but as i'm in the UK,when i contacted Etymotic they...

    Etymotic ER4 with sub bass?

    Just wondering Is there any alternatives that aren’t Etymotic? I remember the jh13 always used to be the best alternative,is that still the case or is there any others to look into?

    Etymotic ER4 with sub bass?

    Hello everyone, haven't been around for a while, but my etymotic er4s have started to break..I really love the sound, but am wondering if nowadays there is anything available that has the same detailed sound but with more sub bass extension? Thanks, Lewis.

      Thanks for that. Yes maybe i'll see if anyone wants to buy them instead..I've already spent too much on the new ones really, i shouldn't start spending on the old ones too!

    luisdent, just wondering, did you try a/b between the HO of ipod touch and line out to C5? I remember you mentioned about something weird going on with the high frequencies from the ipod or something?-Was it easier to tell with the a/b switch?

    I wonder why etymotic decided to go with the green filters as stock rather than red?-They must have decided at some point for a reason? I haven't heard the reds yet,but it sounds like they are a better match,from how they are described. (Not that I have any complaints with the greens of course!) .

    JDS Labs C5/C5D (pg96) portable amp/amp+DAC

    Ok so I just tried listening to 'the wedding' with the eq. Fortunately/unfortunately,I don't have the problem! Even with 10db precut,the volume was fine for me in low gain mode nowhere near maxed?-If I max the volume in the quiet part at -10db then I do hear noise,but at that volume,the loud...

    JDS Labs C5/C5D (pg96) portable amp/amp+DAC

    Hmm,might have to try a rockboxed fuze one day,thanks for the info. I have looked into it but went with the touch because it looks so good! I had a Hifiman HM801 before the iPod/c5,,and definitely prefer the iPod/c5. I haven't really listened to the HO actually because I bought it just plug...

    "Then you don't listen to the same music i do. :-P. and the irony is that i listen to music quieter than most people i know." Luisdent,if you dont mind,would you be able to give an example of a track that you find particularly problematic? I would like to download it and see. I'm asking because...

    Quality EQ apps for ipod/iphone/ipad

    Well I still use it as my main player at the moment,because I like to eq the sub bass,but if I didn't need eq,I would definitely go back to the stock player. It's quite similar to the stock player in terms of searching,but a bit more fiddly to use,and it has a tab in the middle that is too tall...

    JDS Labs C5/C5D (pg96) portable amp/amp+DAC

    Nice review, well done!   It reminded me that i had totally forgotten about the gain switch. Does higher gain sound better on some iems?-I have er4s, i tried to compare the gain settings but it's difficult because of the whole louder sounds better thing.   Anyone with ER4s out...
