Yes I had 2 pairs and gave one away. I use the last one as spare. Sadly for me I use them for commuting and therefore looks do count. I have set them as spare after aquiring a UM2 and subsequently an ES2. Etymotic will really have to do something about the goofy look. I'd pay for twice the money but sadly some companies are set in their ways! A low profile stage usable Etymotic is clearly a endless pit of cash but how come they cant see? It really disappoints me.
