    They both insert to equal depth, so I'm not really sure what's causing it!

    I'll say it is likely a change of decay (which affects thinkness) and probably a slight change of FR curve that caused the difference in perception.

    Finding out about the disadvantages of alternative feeders, many drivers decide not to buy such equipment at all. Do not take hasty decisions. The fact that such units cannot start a drained battery does not mean that they are useless for ex.this great article https://guruchoicelab.com/battery-chargers/will-a-solar-panel-charge-a-dead-battery/ . Their application area is just somewhat different.
    It is best to have a regular charger and supplement it with a solar unit. Place an absorbing plate on a dashboard and safely travel long distances, knowing that your battery will always be freshly charged. There will be no need to look for a power source, which is particularly challenging while visiting distant areas like forests, villages, and wild beaches.

    Probably, but headphone with little noise isolation which requires huge volume boost to overcome surrounding noise isn't exactly safe either, not to mention the high possibility of hearing damage.

    Has Etymotic changed the standard eartips? I just got an Er4sr and the tips were smaller, not as long and more narrow than the standard that came with Er3se. The new ones do not give the same seal, with less bass and general thinness to tone. When I used the old ones from the Er3 the sound all came together. Is this just variation or have the specs changed? I need more tips but I don't want the new ones if they are this way now. Anyone have suggestions to an equivalent from another source, if I can no longer get the same from Etymotic? Even small changes seem to make a difference with Etymotic, which speaks somewhat to the transparency. If the new ones are different I don't have tips that work at the moment other than the one pair from the Er3.

    Yes they changed the tip sizes. Only the foam tips work well for me now as they do not make the old gray bigger tips anymore.

    You haven't found an equivalent from another maker? not sure what to do now as the foamies don't work for me.
  11. panasonicst60
    I have not tried other alternatives from other makers so I can't comment. What's wrong with the foamies for you?

    I tried them a couple times and could not get a good sound compared to the regular tips, and just left them after that. not enough depth was the problem likely.

    There should be a pair of large tri-flanges also included in the package, no? To be clear, both smaller (now called 'standard') tri-flanges and larger (now called 'large') tri-flanges are included in the package - the only difference is, in the past, that Ety used to put the larger tri-flanges on the IEM and the smaller tri-flanges are in the box in the past; Now they put the smaller tri-flanges on the IEM while leaving the larger tri-flanges in the box.

    As far as I know, you can still place order on the older grey large tri-flanges from Etymotic.

    Is it better than the FiiO BTR1K (or the BTR3)? It's all touch and no volume operation on the unit, right?
