An excellent bundle. Both products deliver.
Do not pay attention to the knuckle dragger who condemns the Etymotics because of the filters or the Lt. Uhura look.
If a modicum of care is exercised* the filters need never be changed; and if the earpieces are inserted PROPERLY they do no sit out of the ear any more other ear buds. And, frankly, far less than many others.
These earphones are to be inserted into the ear canal. The sound and experience will take your breath away (Given, of course, the quality of the recording.)
*a) Prior to insertion one should thoroughly clean one’s ears.
b) After use one should remove and wipe off the tips, then run a toothpick through them back to front.
Following this practice will obviate the need for new filters. (My last pair of Etymotics (ER.6i) lasted me five years without filter changes.)

I originally bought this combination for the Etymotic HF5 ear buds and thought the player would be a throw-away bonus item -- kinda like the prize in the box of cereal that is lost or broken 5 minutes after it's pulled out of the box. Now that I have had the chance to learn to use this in the best way to suit me, there is a lot to like about this little, digital audio player. For its size, it is able to process audio better than any iPod or MP3 player I have owned in the past. I took a song that I knew had a wide dynamic range of audio and played it on this player as well as one of my favorite iPods. In short, this player brought the song to life in a way that my iPod ever did. The digital to analog converter (DAC) in this player is by far one of the best I have ever heard in a portable player to date, and I didn't have to take out a second mortgage on the house in order to buy it.
In short, these are what I like and dislike about these items - Pros: - Can't...
