Had some etymologics a few years back, and although the sound was good the durability was absolutely awful. Luckily got them from the Apple store and they replaced 3 of 4 pairs before I gave up on them. Each one lasted 6 months or less before the cables gave in. Good sound, awful quality
Years ago, my ER4P lasted me 3 years before I had to get the cable replaced (wrapping and uncoiling it twice every single work day for the commute took it’s toll). I now have both the ER4SR and ER4XR in addition to my replacement ER4P and love each of them. I even rate their bluetooth cable highly so am a fan of the brand. I would be intrigued to try the Evo but if I’m honest can’t think of a sensible reason to part with the cash until my current Etys cease to work. Maybe one day they’ll make a true wireless.
Every set of earphones I own, if you can change the cable, I do. Some are just not that good or you can basically get better/nicer. However, none of the original cables seems to be as bad as these. They massively cheaped out on these
