I have the Shure MPA and a pair of Etymotic ER.4s and the resulting cable situation is a real pain. So I was wondering whether the sound quality of the hf2s was really the same as the ER.4s?





It would also be nice to have an image of what these earphones look like while being worn. Not really for vanity reasons as I get odd looks already wearing my ER.4s, but it would be useful to see where the microphone placement is and how the clip works that was mentioned in the review. I know I could probably check Etymotic's site but hey, I'm lazy.

I also own a pair of hf2's Andy and obviously the ER4s are more expensive but I do believe (especially if using the foam inserts)the sound is close enough when playing high bitrate encoded music to make the extra convenience worth it.





Put it this way, I have both and I use the ER4s with my Sansa Clip at the gym and the hf2s are my default earphones with my iPhone. (The hf2s don't stick out as much as the ER4s!)

Having just lost my crap iPhone stock headset, where can I get my hands on a pair in the UK?!





I am loathed to pay another 㾿 for a replacement standard set!

@Toberman - hf2 stock seems surprisingly limited at the moment but I did find a link here: http://www.pjbox.co.uk/store/c...





If cash is tight I'd hold on for a week or so, there are usually 100s of retailers stocking the full range of Etymotic earphones.

Thanks Gordon. Any suggestions as to which retailers to keep an eye on?





Looking at them on eBay to import from the US... tempted!
