    Im not sure actually,haha that probably would have been easier. Oh well I have the new cable ordered now so may as well go down that route instead and see what happens.. Hopefully it will be ok!

    Yes it looks like that issue has improved with the new models. That was a problem on an older pair.(I’ve had 3 different pairs over the years). The problem I have now is the jack plug is worn,so the sound keeps cutting out unless you get it in just the right place! I was wondering if anyone...

    Hi guys, my beloved er4s have started to break at the connector. I don't have the money to buy new ones at the moment, but then i saw this replacement cable (that i can afford) on eBay!...Anyone tried these things...

    Etymotic ER4 with sub bass?

    Ah ok I see they have all changed now. Thanks for that. Are those the same as the er4p used to be? I had those many years ago before getting the er4s with an amp. I love the combination of er4s with jds labs c5 amp with bass boost. I don’t think the er4p was quite as good as that combination...

    The jack plug on my er4p has broken,so the sound keeps cutting out. After 13 years,I find myself always using the p to s converter cable,so I looked into getting the cable repaired and being made into er4s at the same time.. However being in the uk,with the labour plus shipping costs and customs...

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

    Yes, it sounds like perhaps you are more sensitive to noise and have super good hearing,and in combination with high gain,pre cutting 10db and quiet music,have a recipe for disaster! I do hear the noise when I max the volume on low gain,but that is way too loud for me!-(When the music goes loud...

    Quality EQ apps for ipod/iphone/ipad

    Yes I've tried that,the only thing is doesnt have gapless playback,which is a shame otherwise I would probably use that instead.(I listen to a lot of mix albums).

    Ipod classic - rockbox - its happening.

    Have a look at '3m dual lock', it's perfect for that!

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

    Got my C5 today, and it's amazing!   I really love the bass boost. I probably wouldn't have it on all the time i don't think, but for drum n bass and trance/edm it's a great option to have (seeing as thats mainly what i listen to!). I'm also using 'equalizer' on the ipod touch for eq as it...

    Quality EQ apps for ipod/iphone/ipad

    Which EQ app would best fit this criteria? ...   1. Gapless Playback 2. Library functions simliar to stock ipod player 3. great sound (obviously!)   I have accudio, sounds good but i don't like the interface much,too fiddly and buggy and no gapless playback. I also have the free...

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

    Thanks very much for that, i found it incredibly useful!   The ipod touch is so thin and light,it would be perfect, but i can't help feeling it's such a shame it needs to have that huge adapter sticking out the bottom!-For me, looking at those pictures, the classic actually seems to fit a...

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

    That would be great,thanks! The new touch looks really good,and eq apps would be useful too,but the 160gb storage of the classic,and the fact it just plays music is also tempting..(I already have an iPhone).Plus it still has the 30 pin dock,so no adapter needed. It all depends on the sound in...

    ipod classic line out vs Ipod touch

    Basically, I have the Etymotic ER4s, and would like to add a bit more bass, which is why i'm looking at amps with bass boost. I am pretty much settled on the ER4s, as i really love the detail and sound signature, but sometimes, if i'm listening to EDM, i would like to add a bit more sub bass...

    ipod classic line out vs Ipod touch

    Ok great,thank you very much. So,rather than an Apple product,what would you recommend as a portable source going to an amp?

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

    I do hope so! I don't have another one to compare it to anyway. My only concern is if it pushes the treble too far on the er4s.

    Thanks very much for that... Thats actually what i've been leaning towards recently, after trying out accudio.. Looks like that might be the one then! Reading through the reviews of the arrow and the C5 makes it so hard to choose! I'm sure they both sound great anyway,but the C5 is quite a...

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

    Ok after a lot of researching, i am still not sure about the best portable set up for the ER4s.   What i really want to do is have the most neutral sound, but with the option to boost the bass when needed, as i listen to lots of EDM too. What i've narrowed it down to so far:   Keeping...
