DVD, & SACD audio enthusiast; 5.1 ROCKS!
The best is never cheapWas using ER 6i's, for 3 years. 6 months ago, a professional audio/video installer recommended the ER 4P.
DO NOT PURCHASE THESE UNLESS YOU FIT THEM PROPERLY!
It takes several turns before they REALLY fit. It reminds me of the old Volkswagen Beetle; (airtight).
Once you filter out the outside world; WOW!
I listen to these M-F on the NYC subway. The majority of my IPod's 2,200 songs are Classic Rock; Beatles, Stones, Who, Clapton, etc.
If you want THUMPING bass, don't purchase; but if you want NATURAL bass, & GREAT midrange, these are exemplary.
New Beatles re-masters, downloaded on ITunes 9.0.2,sound incredible, without ear deafening volume.
You'll hear nuances, that you never knew existed.

Best In-Ear Earphones AroundThese buds are absolutely fantastic. The clarity is utterly unmatched by any other in-ear phones on the market today. The replacement ear tips are also greatly appreciated. The price may be a bit steep for some, but these are WELL worth the money.

small wonderI bought my Etymotic ER-4p with converter cable to -4S about 18 months ago. In the first few weeks I had trouble accepting the earplugs into my ears. Slowly, slowly I'm getting used to it and now I'm useing it as my primarily listening device. Before this, I used Grado Labs SR-60 with HeadRoom's Little Version Headphone Amplifier for many years and before that I used Stax Electrostatic Ear Speaker SR-X. Now those headphones are left in the storage bin. Needless to say that I'm happy with this true, clean,clear sound from ER-4P/-4R earphones especially when its used along with the afore-mentioned Headphone Amplifier. That seems to sweeten out the harsh tone from digital recording. The price is high but the reward is worth it.
