    Will the Etymotic ER-4S Or ER-4P Be A Better Match for my Cowon D2?

    The ER4S is slightly more accurate than the ER4P. The ER4S needs a amp to shine. You will definitely need a warm sounding portable amplifier since the Cowon D2 is a cold sounding player along with the ER4 series which are cold earphones. You will get a freezing sound.

    Shure SE530? Is it still a top ranking IEM?

    The Shure SE530's really need a EQ.

    I guess I pretty much learned what treble is. All the triple flanges did was give me a full and clear sound in each ear which seemed to open up the treble. Really it didn't. The foam tips just weren't for my ear canals. I have my SE530's hooked up to my laptop right now. I have found the perfect...

    TRANCE/HOUSE fans only!!

    I listen to alot of trance to. Mostly ATB. I have the Zune 120gb and the Shure SE530's and they pair wondefully. Deep, powerful and tight bass. Amazingly precise midrange. Also the treble is a bit low on volume but the detail is all there.

    Shure SE530? Is it still a top ranking IEM?

    Pair them up with a RSA tomahawk portable amplifier and the highs will be bought out. Try my mod and the highs will be brought out. EQ them and the highs will be bought out.

    IEM's and air pressure inside the ears

    Occasionally I'll raise my ears without touching them just using my face muscles. The seal from my Shure SE530's breaks and air escapes resulting in a fuller sound. This will always happen if something is blocking your ear canal since air pressure will build up quickly.
