    FLC8N replacement / ~$300 IEMs

    I am looking for a replacement for the FLC8N that I lost. Should I just get another FLC8N or are there better options now? My gripes with FLC8N were the comfort and the isolation. I am considering Etymotic ER4XR but I never tried Etymotics so I have no idea how they fare in terms of...

    Has anyone been able to compare the isolation between the ER2XR/etc and Magaosi K5/X3/etc with foam tips?

    My MA750i is dying, and with fireworks season approaching I'm in need of a new IEM that sounds good and isolates well. ER2XR seems to be the obvious choice for this, but apparently Magaosi IEM's also isolate well, and I'm interested in multi-BA IEM's because I liked the treble, detail and...

    Could use some IEM advice!!

    Lately for whatever reason I've become interested in IEMs. Probably because I'm happy with my full-sized setup and this is my favorite hobby so I need to keep myself entertained lol! Hopefully, I don't just have upgrade-itis here... Anyway, for headphones I own Focal Clear (primary open back)...

    The story behind Etymotic Music Pro

    Rationale for electronic musicians earplugs Music is dynamic, and changes in loudness. There are short intense periods and sometimes loud sound is sustained for minutes. In between there are softer passages. Music Pro High-fidelity Electronic Musicians Earplugs were designed for musicians who...

    Etymotic EVO

    The Evo is taking a big departure from the well-known precision machined, anodized and laser-etched aluminum bodies look of our ER line. Metal injection molding allowed us to take a different direction. Metal powder and resin are mixed together, then precisely poured into metal molding, heated...

    Etymotic & Westone - Discussion & Impressions (index in 1st post)

    I have recently obtained 3 Etymotic IEMs: ER3SE, ER3XR and ER4SR. I was surprised to see there is so little discussion on Etymotic and its products here, so this is my attempt to change that! This is my vision of the purpose for this thread: Discuss Etymotic current and upcoming products Post...

    Etymotic er2xr vs er3xr

    Hi, I'm looking for a good, isolating, non fatiguing iem under 200. After some research I've came down to the Etymotic er2xr, er3xr, and the er4xr. I plan on using these during study sessions in my school library and stationary listening. These will be plugged into my phone (iphone 11) for...

    What's the advantage of multi balanced armatures designs versus singles ones?

    I was looking for concrete information about the advantages of multi balanced armatures designs for IEMs versus single armature ones when I came across this video posted by Knowles, which explains a lot of things: I thought I would share it here since it's very educational. The video contains...

    Do Etymotic IEMs still offer the very best passive noise isolation possible?

    I'm looking to buy another pair of IEMs. I have two MK5s already but one has just started making a hissing sound (probably a bad cable). Is Etymotic with triple flanges still the undisputed king of passive noise isolation or are there other options that have come on the market since I last...

    IEM for Etymotic HD15

    Hello everyone, After lurking for so long, i am now taking the leap forward into the IEM world. I've been using etymotic's HD15 earplugs for work and hunting, but lately i have stopped using them because i hate ear tips that never made the right seals perfectly each time. When it's in...

    Moving on from ER4PT?

    I've been loving my Etymotic for years now. Been loving them so much, that after breaking one cable and i couldn't find a new one; just ordered a new pair. This cable broke too (both at the Y split), and believe me that i'm damn cautious about handeling and storing my IEM's. It's just too sad...

    ER4XR twice the normal resistance, extremely quiet, no low end. Possible to fix?

    A week ago I sniped a pair of broken ER4XRs on eBay for 80€. The seller said that one side didn't play and I was hoping that a simple cable swap would fix the issue. Sadly, it wasn't the cable's fault and instead the driver's. With my multimeter I measured 45 ohm for the working driver and 90...

    Sony MDR-7550 or Etymotic ER4XR or Massdrop Plus

    Hi gurus, I had a hifiman RE400 and I am looking for an upgrade. This is actually my first real audiophile earphone. I will prefer something clear, accurate, comfortable and neutral sounding. Something I can plug into my office computer and listen for long hours.

    Etymotic ER2SE - A Reference Headphone for your Ears and Your Couplers

    After some discussion with fellow headfi measurement enthusiasts, I thought it would be helpful to send a pair of Etymotic ER2SE dynamic driver IEMs out on a world tour. The aim isn't to produce a set of reviews for these headphones (and I'm not going to give them marks out of 5 here), but...

    Deep insert earbud like etymotic?

    I'm a fan of etymotic's deep insert earbud style. ER4XR was great but it lacked bass I craved. Any other earbud that has similar deep insert style like etymotic?

    Which Etymotic triple flanges to buy?

    I have the Etymotic MK5s. They're pretty much single-handedly responsible for allowing me to get any work done in my current open office environment. After a couple of near misses with the flanges getting disconnected while in my ear, I've vowed to take replacing them every so often more...

    ER3XR or IT01 or...?

    Hi all! New here. I am looking to replace my old HF3 Etys (Cables are going out) with something new. I am looking to spend under $200. I can get a pair of HR3XR for under 140 - but I have also read a lot of hype about the iBasso IT01. Can someone help me compare the two, and/or recommend...

    Etymotic ER4p or ER4XR?

    Does anyone have experience with both IEMs? I tried Googling and looked here on Head-fi, but I can't seem to find if the new XR is a big improvement over the older 4p. I can get Er4P new for $200 and Er4XR new for $300. Is the $100 US worth the upgrade? The 4P come with an adapter that turns...
