I was concerned about the fit of these, but they’re surprisingly comfortable. I usually don’t like foam tips, but the included ones work well for me, and actually helps with the comfort.

Has anyone directly compared the SE and XR? I can't decide which is right for me.

Feel free to go with XR, there is a "thump" in the very low end if music has it, but it is very controlled, doesn't extend into the mids and doesn't "mud" up the reproduction at all. I know it says it's extra bass, but I can only parrot what Etymotic website states, around 2-3db push, not more.
I got the er3xr from drop's warehouse site where a lot of items went on discount to get rid of some older inventory (including a 1070ti that I lucked out on getting for about 250 USD in November 2019). Some months after there was a channel imbalance on one side that swapping out the filters for newer ones couldn't fix. Etymotic service was quite helpful in getting a replacement and now I have a pair that has yet to develop any issues. On top of that, they really do sound good and have a decent build quality. They're my go-to when I have to do video calls and I want to focus perfectly on the person I'm talking to or whenever I just want to listen to the music and nothing else since the 35-42db noise isolation will easily block out a LOT of noise. And once the music plays on top of the isolation, it's like you're in your own world. The only con I'd say these have is the nearly non-existent soundstage that barely gets out of your head at times, but it is to be expected due to the deep insertion.

It just makes zero sense that they cant bring these up to at least the [alleged] minimum 20 kHz of a human hearing range - Why leave off 4kHz ? Its great they can isolate and bring audio right into my ear but if they cannot give me at a bare minimum 20kHz (in terms of work) these are a no - go. Such a shame as their tonality can actually be useful at times :/

Full audio range is 10 octaves. The last octave, or 1/10 of the audio range as perceived, is 10kHz to 20kHz. Since the scale is logarythmic, 4kHz is actually less than 2/5 of that last octave. Look at a log scale, it's actually closer to 1/3. Use a DSP tool of some sort to sharply filter out audio below 10kHz to see what the last octave is. It's swishy hissy sounds. It's the least important octave. So above 16kHz, if you can even hear it, is a fraction of the least important octave of the audio spectrum. Also it can be fatiguing and annoying so it is often EQ'd down in music production and live sound systems. There's nothing important up there, the last octave is trash.

The thought of listening to just that range is enough to give me a headache

Hey, Ety, i just looked at Amazon and eBay, and they want crazy amounts of shipping. Drop seemingly has found the best shipping costs to the rest of the world, so please, do a drop soon!

Received a notification today that in order to receive my Etymotics I have to pay a hefty £32 ! That's ridiculous as during DROP's checkout I was re-assured there will be no other charges or fees and eventualy placed my order based on this info. Sorry to say, this is the last time I'm dealing with Drop. I'm out of this joke!

You have to complain to her majesty instead of Drop when it comes to import VAT

Excited to get these. I had the ER4P in the past but found them sterile and eventually sold them. I'm hoping the slight bass emphasis on these will do it for me this time. Any recommendations for after market tips as from memory, I couldn't get used to the triple-flanged stock ones. Thinking about getting the CP800 Spinfits.
