    Personally I see no issue for as long as the quality that Etymotic is known for is maintained.

    Craft Ears Reviews/Impressions Thread

    If you mean IEMs my daily driver is the Hidition Viento but I do rotate with the rest in my profile. The CE6 is interesting because of their supposed "True Load" and "Rasen Bass". The former is something that is quite rare in the IEM world and the latter tells me CraftEars is pushing for...

    Shure AONIC 50 -

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

    I will agree to disagree. My biggest problem is with the Homunculus. The bass sounds like it is positioned in front of the entire sound, and the tonality is weird.

    For portable my go-to is the DP-S1 / DX160. But I normally use my etys at home (ER4S / ER4B) with the ifi Micro Black Label, which has been working wonderfully for me.

    Beautiful! Was it built ground up or a "reshell" of an existing Ety?

    QDC - Discussion and Impressions Thread

    That price point is like a breath of fresh air in today's market. Hoping to try it as soon as the demo is available.
