    Etymotic Research ER4XR reviews

    ER4XR In-Ear Extended Response Earphones is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from G.K As usual Etymotic Research didn't disappoint with its flagship, clear response in all three frequencies, all in its place!. listening almost any genres of hi-res music on the go, at home... I'll not compare them with different gear but I will say having a not small experience with high and SE846--Astell&Kern AK T1p and a few more in ear-over the head headphones.. this model of etimotics is not to far in quality example... I love se846 for every day basis but is kinda hard to use in winter time, i the car, under the coat, when snowboarding, but great for summer time photography (no wires in front of you ;) I'm photographer so the guys with same (disease:D) will understand what I'm talking about... I used to have ER-4PT which I lost it somehow, one more thing I want to mention: if it's used with synthetic clothing you may experience a little microphonic effects (not that critical) now eartips: since I have a previous model eartips was my biggest concern, they didn't work for me, except foam tips... Best tips I had used with phones they were Shure EABKF1-10M... Sorry if made some written mistake, new year days so... :D Happy new year! Cheers

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good ... First pair arrived with faulty cable-driver connection, was exchanged by B&H without issue. I just had those for ~2 weeks, so still experimenting. For my ears, the three flange tips work fine but also got some Comply compression foam tips to try. Noise insulation is fine, but have not tried them in challenging environment (airplane). Sound changes quite a bit with insertion level and precise position of IEM in ear canal. Frequency response is pleasing to me, not too bass heavy, and that is why I chose these.  Cable noise is quite pronounced if I let the cords dangle straight down, but is reduced to almost nothing if I run the cable over the ears and down behind them.  An upgraded DAC (dragonfly red) improves sound quality off a laptop, particularly tight bass, as does a better software interface (pure music on top of iTunes). I also tried them on a Woo WA6-SE tube headphone amp, and it sounds cleaner than off the headphone out of a Rotel RA1572. Still looking for some decent cans for the WA6. I have yet to get the ER4s onto the iPhone, got Vox as a FLAC player and the camera adapter to connect the dragonfly red to the iPhone. So far so good, but still lots of options to try to get the best out of those IEM. Other IEMs used, mainly B&O H2 or H3. The ER4s sound cleaner with tighter bass, and producing much getter soundstage.
