Both sound very natural to me. ER2 is more realistic for some of the instruments I play. The hd600 is slightly bassy/darker, and the vocal is just slightly recessed. So if you feel HD600 is intimate, this IEM may surprise you. The ER2 is a bit sibilant compared to hd600, though itself is definitely not. I prefer male vocal on the hd600 because it sounds fuller, and I prefer female vocal on the Ety because it sounds sweeter. Here is how I would describe it. If the brightest headphone is like the noon, and the darkest headphone is the midnight. Then ER2 is like the dawn, a little energetic, while hd600 is like the dusk, very relaxing. Although the lighting is similar, the feeling is different.
HD600 has a larger soundstage and is inoffensive. There is a tendency to forget it is on my head after a while. Transient seems to be better on ER2. Everything feels faster. I seriously doubt I heard much detail difference. HD600 is a little more detailed? But ER2 has at least 90% of details I heard on the hd600 at normal listening volume. However, ER2 is only one-third of that price (Let's exclude amp and dac here...) Good job Etymotic. The soundstage is not very wide but there is no feeling of congestion. Instrument separation is still better on HD600.
The form factor is of course very different. When I switched to my ER2 while hd600 still playing, the sound leakage from hd600 and every other noise from outside world is suddenly blocked. And when I put on my hd600 while ER2 playing. I can even hear the sound leakage from ER2 on my desk clearly.
The new package comes with four double-flange tips. These are my favorites, miles ahead of triple-flange ones comfort wise. It is easy to insert and feels more secure than single-flange. Insert depth affects sound very little because of the new dynamic driver. One side note is that a good seal is necessary for this IEM to shine. Otherwise there can be weird peaks in the FR that isn't supposed to be there as well as detail loss.
There's an app in the Play Store called USB Audio Player Pro (UAPP) that has a parametric EQ add-in. On reddit, there's an audio expert (oratory1990) who measures and provides corrective EQ settings for the Etymotics to achieve the Harman target. The ER2SE sounds quite neutral now and compliments my Sennheiser HD 6XXs very well, with both tracking my preferred target nearly the same.
My suggestion for potential owners of ER2s is to buy whichever is the cheapest and EQ them to taste. The XR model provides enough bass boost to satisfy most of today's listeners but either can be EQ'd to sound nearly the exact same. Deep ear insertion isn't for everyone but once you are used to that they become very comfortable and block out enough outside sound to equal the expensive noise cancelling headphones on the market and provide superior sound.
Isolation is of course fantastic.
Build quality is good, I can't find any faults. The cable is nice and soft. Comes with a nice pouch and the iems themselves have a nice sturdy feel to them.
First the isolation: when no music is playing I can still hear the AC if I get close enough. Once something starts playing, nothing. The downside is that you won't hear it if someone's trying to talk to you, so one should be careful using it outdoors or anywhere situational awareness is required.
The sound: absolutely outstanding. I really can't find any weaknesses. Everything is natural and balanced. The timbre of instruments and voices is natural and there's enough bass, as much as can be expected from IEMs which can't produce the visceral bass of speakers, anyway. The spatial qualities of the sound are as good as can be expected from IEMs but again don't compare to speakers of course. Other things such as detail, balance between treble and mids etc are outstanding.
Comfort: for the first couple of days my ear canals got itchy after about an hour or so but now they've accommodated and I can wear them without any discomfort. They are pretty light and the included case is pretty small.
Value: Amazon had them for 125 before the holidays and they are outstanding value for money. They seem to be well built and should last quite a while unless mistreated.

Only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is they can be a little difficult to drive from portable devices
Wer sich für Kopfhörer von Etymotic interessiert, weiß, daß sie großen Wert auf Neutralität legen, mehr als auf kräftigen Baß.
Dafür sind die Höhen ohne Sibilanten oder einen unangenehmen Peak sehr fein gezeichnet. Ebenso die Mitten, die meiner Meinung nach wesentlich über ihrer Preisklasse spielen.
Stimmen sind eine Stärke des Kopfhöreres, wenn der Song allerdings Baß erfordert, muß schonmal mit einem Equalizer nachgeholfen werden, auf den der ER2SE allerdings sehr gut reagiert.
Eigentlich hat der Etymotic nur einen Nachteil. Er muß sehr tief in das Ohr geschoben werden, was Anfänglich ungewohnt und auch unangenehm sein kann. Allerdings gewöhnt man sich ziemlich schnell daran.
Der Vorteil ist eine ziemlich gute Isolation gegenüber Umgebungsgeräuschen, weshalb man die Kopfhörer nicht unbedingt sehr laut eingestellt werden müssen.
Ingesamt ein ziemlich fein zeichnender Hörer für gehobene Ansprüche an die Musik, der den Vergleich mit deutlich teureren In Ear Kopfhörern sicher nicht scheuen braucht.
