    Reply to review by 'vesther' on item 'Etymotic ER4SR'

    This review proves that you don't need to cough up a high wad of cash for high accuracy earphones.  Etymotic proves that they're the most careful company when it comes to drivers.  While the bass tends to be weak in certain instances, they engineer their balanced armature drivers very carefully...

    Klipsch Has some new things?

    I did see the X7.  It's much like the X5 but was made for music phone compatibility.  I used to have the X10 but they were way too small for some.  I don't want to own too many IEMs, but I feel that I'd be willing to give the X7i a test-nod and/or check-out.  I've also seen reports of Klipsch...

    Which is better - Shure SCL4-K, SE310, E4c

    They actually have the same technology as with each other but the SE310 is more collapsable and more expandable with other "things" from Shure and is widely more available than the E4 or SCL4 although the E4/SCL4 has replaceable nozzles just in case you break them. It's very hard to say which...

    my se530s broke again and I need your help

    I've never seen so many complaints about the SE530 here in these forums--never saw a case this bad--For the record, I only had one broken nozzle incident with the E500 from using "Black Foam Sleeves"--that's because I neglected to clean the earphones. Personally I would use those Supersoft...

    newb audiophile....bose?

    Bose doesn't have too much experience in the Headphone field but they have more expertise in the speaker field. There are lower-profile audio makers who have far more audio experience than Bose overall. Headphones aren't Bose's forte so keep that in mind. While there are companies that...

    How to protect IEMs?

    Hard Cases are the way to go. Avoid cases with "hard edges" as your putting the IEM's wires at risk.

    E4c cord is breaking. need help

    That's what I don't like about the wires--I had that problem twice--the right cord "cracked" and it exposed the wire, and the left cord did the same thing. It could be my skin oil, but could it also be caused by excessive twisting of the wire? What I do to combat this phenomenon ever since is...

    They're the same product with the exception that the i4c adds cell phone support (One low-mass/high-energy balanced armature with internal vent, Shure VoicePort Microphone).
