This is one of those "If you know, then you want them" kind of deal.
If you’re after resolution rather than cheap thrills, Etymotic is one of the first earphone brands to check out.
Not only does the name Etymotic Research Inc sound just like a science lab, but its new ER4SR headphones build on the success of the classic ER4 and ER4PT in-ears.
The Etymotic ER4SR are, alongside the ER4XR, one half of a new duo of Etymotic earphones. These are the ultra-accurate option, the SR standing for ‘studio response’.
There’s almost nothing to dislike about the Etymotic ER4SRs' sound. It’s not clinical, nor as cold as some of Etymotic’s classic models.
Bass detail is fantastic, its control is perfect - both taut and fast. It’s a little reserved though, meaning bass obsessives may want to look for something with greater low-end power.
At times it’s possible to regard the bass almost as an intellectual exercise, rather than as an assault on the eardrums, but it’s easy to analyse the anatomy of it.
For the ER4SRs the midrange is the strongest area, and a reminder of why spending over £300 on something that weighs just a few grammes (and isn't made of gold) isn’t automatically madness.
Detail is superb, without ending up in the potentially caustic granularity some headphones with supposedly revealing mids can be guilty of. It's the aural equivalent of an over-sharpened photo, but it's not something the Etymotics are prey to.

They probably meant wired. Even with BT module, it's still not true wireless.
