New Bottle, Old Wine: Etymotic ER4PT

I would love to tell you that Etymotic finally creates a new flagship IEM 19 years after the ER4 series was released - No, unfortunately not. As far as I can tell, this new Etymotic, called the ER4PT, comes with two more things that are not included in the original ER4P: an airline adapter and a certificate of channels matching test. Now I suppose the airline adapter could be what is adding the T (as in 'Travel') to the new name, or maybe it is the sudden important emphasis on 'Testing'? Well, for what I know Etymotic has been doing channels matching on the ER4 series for a long time now, so adding a certificate really doesn't make it better than it is. All in all, I am really just seeing a marketing decision rather than a real change in the ER4 series. Don't get me wrong though, I still love the ER4 series - with T or not.

Beside getting free review samples, I don't work for or get paid by anyone to write anything on this website, or anywhere else in that matter. Also, free review samples are never sold for any financial gain. I do buy gears and review them, but for simplicity you (the reader) should always assume what I review is free sample in nature (and thus comes with all the bias). The website does have Google Ads and Amazon Associates enabled (which I have no direct control over their content) - though I don't write review for a living, nor does the ads generates enough money to cover my breakfast (in fact, not even one breakfast per week). Listening to music and playing with audio gears are purely hobby for me. In short, I am just an audiophiles who happens to have his own blog. Not a journalist who happens to be an audiophile. Oh, and excuse my writing as I am not a native English speaker and can't afford a proofreader. Also, just because I don't write in a negative tone doesn't mean I don't write down the negative aspect of a gear. Please read them carefully.
