Hello everyone, haven't been around for a while, but my etymotic er4s have started to break..I really love the sound, but am wondering if nowadays there is anything available that has the same detailed sound but with more sub bass extension?

Thanks,

Lewis.

Etymotic has exactly what you are looking for, and it is called ER4XR.

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 from memory..well the bass anyway!

No, ER4XR is not an ER4P look-alike nor does it works the same way. ER4P gets more bass by reducing treble, The new ER4 series, on the other hand, uses brand new drivers. ER4XR has the treble extension of an ER4S with about 3~4dB boost in the sub-bass region.

Just wondering Is there any alternatives that aren’t Etymotic?
I remember the jh13 always used to be the best alternative,is that still the case or is there any others to look into?
