The way to improve my normal earphone dramatically.

投稿日:Wednesday April 5th, 2017 更新日:

I surprised when I try this first.
So the conclusion is change the ear-tips to ETYMOTIC RESEARCH‘s one.

Now the newest series are ER4SRs. The legend ER4 series are amazing and famous earphones which is featured deep insert canal type ear tip.

It’s sounds like input the real sounds into my brain directly. It is so accurate and flat. It’s getting big support not only from the audiophile but also the sound engineer. I also bought ER4S few year’s before and loved it so much.

But unfortunately, 2yeas ago it was broken because of disconnection. And I leave it since then. (They didn’t sell the genuine cable…)

On the other hand, I have Sony’s earphone MDR-XB41EX especially for my using  on jogging and exercising. (I got it from my friend, it was about $20,I guess. ) But I lost the ear tips of it.

So then I conceived using the 3Flange Eartips for this normal Sony earphone.

At a glance, the hole of ER4S’s ear tips looked too small to fit in…


I inserted by force slowly and they connected!.

So the thing is sound, it’s so amazing!
Primary sound insulation is so high. I feel it’s like almost same with ER4S about insulation. (But sorry I cannot compare them since my ER4S is broken)

Of course I guess it less sound quality than real ER4S, but totally different sound up until now. When I use it in the train, I don’t need turn volume up so much, because of the high isolation.

3Flange Eartips is sold as a single unit. I recommend to combine with Sony’s earphone and it.

Oh, sorry but I’m not sure the hole size are same or not between mine and current sony’s one.

But I guess it’s not changed because genuine ear tips of my Sony earphone are available for current new series. (Although checked in Japanese Sony Web, but I will not bear full responsibility for that. )

5 popular headphones tested review and I bought FOCAL Spirit Pro

My earphones Etymotic Research ER4S was broken after having used long time. After that I didn’t use headphones or earphones for a while. And I used only GENELEC 8010 when I make music in my room. But still, it’s bit difficult to make music completely without headphones, then I bought it.

Genelec 8010APM review after 3 years using

When I had moved to Germany, the music equipment first I bought was Genelec 8010APM. Sponsored Links Because it was still soon from coming from Japan, I didn’t have enough money. But I thought I had to get the monitor speakers as soon as possible, since I came here to make music. Then I bought it. At the time, most of my colleagues who are going to music school  or are about to start his life as a composer in Berlin had Yamaha HS5 or KRK RP5. I thought that I also buy one of them. But the problem was I was not sure …

Around 1 years before, I found this setting of Massive at somewhere in Internet. I don’t remember it was whether preset of itself or article to make it. But I cannot find this anywhere in internet at this time. So I will hand down it.


Now a days on EDM and HipHop, the DUCKING and Side-chain compression is inevitable elements. I introduce ”KICKSTART” of NICKY ROMRO for that. Sponsored Links In the first place, what is ducking and side chain compression? It’s commonly used technique in EDM, Dubstep or HIPHOP. Mainly (for example), Bass or synths would be less when Kick’s on. Originally it was sake for make less dynamics to make whole output sounds level bigger. Then it become to be used for more vigorous sound design now. In conclusion, you can feel the effect that the music is like expanding and close continiously. Although my LOGIC …
