    My new cable arrived yesterday, and my broken ER4S are now working and sounding amazing again. Thank you so much to cliOS for the cable recommendation!-Really appreciate that. I actually have an old pair of ER4P that need a new cable too. Would that cable i bought turn them into ER4S because...

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

    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...

    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...

      Thanks for that. Yes maybe i'll see if anyone wants to buy them instead..I've already spent too much on the new ones really, i shouldn't start spending on the old ones too!

    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...

    luisdent, just wondering, did you try a/b between the HO of ipod touch and line out to C5? I remember you mentioned about something weird going on with the high frequencies from the ipod or something?-Was it easier to tell with the a/b switch?

    I wonder why etymotic decided to go with the green filters as stock rather than red?-They must have decided at some point for a reason? I haven't heard the reds yet,but it sounds like they are a better match,from how they are described. (Not that I have any complaints with the greens of course!) .

    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...

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

    Hmm,might have to try a rockboxed fuze one day,thanks for the info. I have looked into it but went with the touch because it looks so good! I had a Hifiman HM801 before the iPod/c5,,and definitely prefer the iPod/c5. I haven't really listened to the HO actually because I bought it just plug...
