Has anyone used an ER6 or ER6i with their Etymotic musicians earplugs? I have ER15 earplugs and this has made me reconsider if I should be getting the ER6 instead of other brands.

How does the ER6 sound like with the ER molds compared to foam tips or flanges? Is the bass significantly better? Thanks

Bass is perhaps a touch better than with foamies; I found the sound seemed a bit clearer and positioning improved a little. The biggest improvements are in comfort and ease of cleaning/not needing to change filters very often.

I have never heard them, but am also curious as I also have musicians earplugs. However, they place the driver much further away from the eardrum, meaning that the amount of air to be driven is greatly increased. This is likely to reduce bass response. That has certainly been reported to be the case with custom moulds for the ER-4p and s.
