    FS Mayflower O2 + ODAC Combo Unit w/ original and upgraded AC power supplies

    Selling my O2/ODAC combo unit just because I upgraded to a big boy balanced setup. This is the original Mayflower model based on the original O2/ODAC designs. Everything works perfectly, and with the original PSU I'm including an upgraded one that gives wide voltage and amperage swings, allowing...

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

    IMO I am a little disappointed by the ER3SR/XR series. It sounds like a lower-resolution version of the ER4SR/XR, a direct downgrade for less money, which makes fiscal business sense but doesn't impress me as a collector and lover of music. The ER3 are still very technically competent compared...

    No, they don't sound the same. I've used the ER4S for over 6 years, and the ER4SR for a few months. To my ears, my main takeaways are ER4S is a little more pronounced/forward, where the ER4SR takes a few steps back in its presentation (not to be confused with increased sound stage depth) ER4S...

    Etymotic ER4SR "Assembled in Vietnam"

    I really hope Etymotic doesn't turn into a historic case of a corporate race to the bottom after going defunct in a few years. They were for a long time the premier brand in portable earphones and have still been for decades one of the top. Really sad to no see, at the very least, a clear...

    I remember testing EtyKids, MC5, MK3, and MK5 in the past, which were all previous attempts at dynamic driver topology while meeting the Etymotic house sound. While EtyKids can be discounted as a special use case, all three of the M-series were really just awful. They sounded like the standard...

    I love Shure Olives, but I need something similar that is "longer"

    I slowly slide the silicone stem straight down over the IEM stem -- luckily newer Etymotics have stainless steel tubes so there's no worry about damaging those thin stalks. I do not roll or twist them at all, just slowly push. Then, when they're on the IEM stem, I gently compress the tips...

    I love Shure Olives, but I need something similar that is "longer"

    I've been using Westone True-Fit Foam ear tips for all my Etymotics and Westones for about 5 years, and have never once had the inner core come unattached from the foam. Are you buying genuine ones? I've seen lots of fakes on eBay and Alieexpress etc.
