No question the UE10's sound better. Better bass. More dynamic.

I HATE the way the cables hang from the ears or need to be tucked behind. I personally find that very uncomfortable.

I would recomend you get the custom ear molds made. It takes some effort but is worth it.

I also recomend you are really careful as the ends of the er4's EASILY break off. I have broken 2 pairs already.
