1 hour into the flight, I went back to my broken Etimotyc Reserarch earphones.

Another thing that REALLY bugs me about the UE10's is the wires need to be draped off the back of your ears. The Etimotycs come stright out of the ear molds and I find them to be WAY more comfortable.

Note: Not everyone has the mold issues I do with my ears. You can stick many types on in-ear monitors right in and they work.
I had a friend that vactioned in London and said he had a screaming kid on the plane all the way home. He finally said something to the Flight Attendant but was told to calm down. We only half kidded him that he's probably on a no-fly list with the FBI now.

Well there's not much you can do about a screaming baby, hopefully your warranty will get you a new mold so you can wear the things!

Is it a design that the wires must go over the ears or can you have the wires molded in the earpieces so they come straight out?

I currently have the Etymotic Research ER4's and am very interested in hearing your opinions on the differences between them and the UE-10's, both in terms of sound quality and comfort. I use the ER4's for noise isolation on long flights and also for mixing sound recordings. I don't have ear molds for the ER4's.

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.

Thumbs up Re: $1,000 in-ear headphones? Have I lost my mind....

Jerry,

I`m glad you finally found some phones that you enjoy. Especially after the issues you have had prior with the E4s. It seems if you make this kind of investment, it makes sense to get the ear molds. For both quality and ultimately comfort.
Now, that you have had them for a minute, can you compare whether the sound quality is better through in ear phones, or the more conventional headphones placed on or over the ear headphones? I`ve always found that the conventional type where better. But, I`ve never demoed anything as good as your new phones.
