You guys can add the 75Ohm resistor to these and get 'close' to ER4S performance. Cant do with ER3XX but detachable cable aaaand... twice the price.

Hey guys, how would you compare this to the Alpha & Delta D6. Already joined that drop, wondering if it'd be worthwhile to join this as well?

What's the difference between these and the ER4 series that they are most known for?

Having had both, these are lower impedance, so will sound fine from any source. The ER4 series benefits from a better source.
These are rubbery plastic with a fixed wire. Many people seem to break them after a year or two. The ER4s have detachable cables and a metal body. They are very sturdy.
Sound wise, these lack some extension in the treble. Cymbals sound like someone has their hand on it. More mid-bass, but less quality. The base sound is very similar though, same kind of tight soundstage and good separation. Maybe a little less detailed depending on your source.
The ER4s are better overall, but cost 5 times the price. If you have a noisy commute though, the HF5 is like magic if deep insertion works for you. I returned my HF5 and got the ER4XR because I was looking for something I would use forever.

The jack plug on these is very fragile. The first bent after falling from 50cm above the ground, the (excellent) support replaced it for me for free, and the same thing happened to the second one. Otherwise they are excellent.

I had these for about a year. The isolation on these is phenomenal. The sound was pretty flat and clear. No bass. Unfortunately, the wire coating easily ripped/wore away after a few months. I had them replaced thru Ety and the replacements wore away as well. I sold the new replacements and purchased some Shure SE215s.

also, with as tiny as these are, comply foam tips are a great compliment. i was always too sweaty/itchy with the triple flanges for extended periods of use.

decent price (roughly $25 off). i've had the er6i for almost 10 years and is what i still compare pretty much everything to. while single balanced is not a bass machine, you'll have a hard time trying to find a more natural & detailed iem.
