  • Summary: It has taken me many years to finally give up using over the ear headphones. I just could not believe there was any "stick it in your ear" phone that had the quality I have grown used to. Well, how wrong I was! Maybe I shouldn't admit to this but I picked up a new set of Etymotics ER6i's on an internet auction for $3. I figured this would be a good time for me to try a pair and if they did not live up to my standards I could just give them to one of my kids.

  • Summary: Being a tight Yorkshireman I was alittle reluctant to pay nearly as much for my earphones as I did for my MP3 player, but...... Having read reviews of these little gems and borrowing a pair of ER6's I decided to break the bank. All I can say about the 'microphoning' of the cord is turn the volume up !!! Yes it is evident when listening to quiet pieces of material if your a bit of a shuffle butt.

  • Summary: Get them and stick with them. You'll likely end up with a strong appreciation for them, unable to accept any substitute.
  • Pros: Great sound, clarity. Comfortable (when you get used to them). Easy to pack/carry.
  • Cons: Need to clean after every use. Expensive filters.

  • Summary: Buy them, they compare to very expensive speaker systems and you can take them anywhere you need to hear a ruler flat frequency response in total isolation.
  • Pros: Tone balance, isolation, extension, silky highs, smooth mids, price.
  • Cons: Narrow sound stage, physical cable noise.

Etymotic ER-4P In-Ear Earphones

  • Summary: First, I'll give you some background. I'm a student, a former music major (now Biomed engineer). I take my music and the quality of my experience very seriously. (I.e. - nothing under a 320 bit rate and no ipods) now, it's not all classical music - but all sorts. you name it, i probably have it. Here are my two cents about this piece. I myself am one of those people who need the foam piece to get a proper, comfortable fit.

Etymotic ER-4P In-Ear Earphones

  • Summary: Before I bought these, I did a LOT of research into the various headphones out there. I wanted something that offered great sound, provided complete noise isolation to the outside world, was portable, durable, and didn't cost $1000. I picked these, have had them over a year now, and am very happy with them. I listen to many types of music: rock, classical, rap, vocal, acoustic, etc. and they have been great.

Etymotic ER-4P In-Ear Earphones

28 October 2008
  • Summary: I recently thought I had lost my ER-4Ps, so went through the process of looking at the Shure 530s and the Ultimate Ear Triple.fi 10vi's. At first, the bass in these two competitors wowed me. But after listening to both for a while and then going to my replacement ER-4P's I remembered what had attracted me to the Ety's in the first place. They are smooth, they are light weight, and just plain comfortable in the ears. I don't think you can go wrong with these.

  • Summary: Nobody's likely to steal these based on their looks alone, which are kind of stylish in a teutonic minimalist sort of way, but it's disappointing when people wearing neon pink plastic get more compliments that you. The plus, of course, is the amazing sound quality. If you don't mind getting hit by the bus you didn't hear, these are the best choice for amped or unamped portable sound; even an iPod can drive them acceptably, and better players like the Sony X can drive...
  • Pros: Probably the best single armature IEM
  • Cons: They're are more stylish options

  • Summary: These headphones give a great fit and outstanding isolation, the sound is very detailed and analytical, perfect if you need to work on tracks in a busy/noisy environment. However, I would not recommend them for casual listening as something like the vsonic gr07 or brainwavz b2 gives a much more enjoyable sound.
  • Pros: Isolation is second to none, Sound is very clear and detailed, good build quality and secure fit
  • Cons: Sound is very analytical, can be uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time.
