    Anyone know where I can find a place to audition the Etymotic ER4SR in Kuala Lumpur or Singapore (I'm traveling to Sg in a couple of weeks)?

    I thought the plussound had bad memory effect and sound quality was ok.The Null audio wire memory must be really bad then. There are only like two or three different low end mmcx for the etymotics, that pretty much everyone uses. Which I'm not a fan of the quality or material of them. There is one made in Japan but literally cost an arm and a leg. About $100+.
    After looking at all my options for my etymotics, I settled on the pure silver Fiio which cost was about $100. The mmcx doesn't have a notch but fits nice and tight. It's also a single molded connector which feels and looks pretty high quality imo. Memory effect is excellent. Sound quality is excellent too

    Built this long before there is a ready-made MMCX connector for ER4SR/XR and it is perfectly usable (also designed to be somewhat locked into the notch so it won't free-spinning). rarely building this anymore as it is not the easiest to solder and take a lot of effort to make. But as far as length goes, it is definitely the shortest and least intrusive.


    You can find my short impression of UP2 (as well as W5 and BTR3) here. ER4S and 4SR are part of the IEM I used when writing those impression.

    After doing more tests since i get much better fit with stock flanges, the SR really fill's out with a 4dB 200Hz low shelf the thinness i got on stock is gone and there no mid/upper bass bleed.

    Do you mean an equalizer?
  6. Fuzzy789
    Yes, parametric one.

    has anyone checked the channel matching on the ER2 series? particularly on the low end, since I find that the balanced armature ER4 and ER3 earphones , which i have i bought and replaced several times, have inconsistent bass responses between each driver..... now , with my current pair of ER3XR's, I use Equalizer APO to selectively reduce the 40-60hz region by ~1.5db on the side with too much bass when I am listening to things on Windows

    Just got the er2xr in. They are tonally very similar to the Sony Ex800ST which kind of shocked me. I might sell them or send them back. Already own the Sonys.

    I would say spend some more time with them. Er2xr are far superior than ex800st. No peaks in the highs.

    They sound really similar. Ima listen to them for a few more hours.

    [edit] OK I hear what you are talking about. There is a certain mid peak that isnt here compared. So far I think these actually compare to both the 800 and KPE very well. Bass is.. good!

    I bet the Ety gives better isolation :)

    That isn't even close, lol. Form factor is very different.

    Listening more. Tried Dire Straights Money for Nothing. My god. That is the best I've ever heard this track. EVER!

    So far I think these beat the KPE. I'm a mid lover and these are so so good!

    I bought the ER4SR back in february, I like it, but I have issues with the fit. They sound ok right after I put them in, but a few seconds later, the sound decrease and sounds a bit muffled. I actually remember having this issue with the Brainwavz B2, so I bought Sure Foam Olives, and those were much better on the B2, and on the Etys they work better than the stock tips, but still I found that the sound is not that full. I don't know if this is an issue with the sealed IEMs and my ear canal. I don't recall having this issue with dynamic IEMs and even some BA like the Sony XBA-4/3/1 or Nuforce HEM-6 doesn't present this issue.

    Has anyone here had similar issues with the Etys?
