  OK, yeah I think I understand what you're talking about. Let me ask you, do you think this adds to the overall SQ somewhat (of course, this must be a stupid question, right? I'm sure it must add to it, otherwise you wouldn't do it --- LOL)!!   I'll have to try that some time   @Mad Max:  That sounds like a plan (the Sony Hybrids, that is). . .do you know if one can purchase just the hybrid tips from Sony (or elsewhere, online)?   Thanks!  
Oh, wait a minute. . .when you say "smaller biglange tips", are you referring to the shure olive foam tips? Sorry, if I misunderstood you. But I thought you meant the small ones included with the RE0s'. . .sorry if I misunderstood you. But the ones that came with the RE0's are what I'm using though.   Maybe I should try the Shures?
I think you have a great point about not having the bass drown everything else out. My other pair of IE's (at the moment) are a pair of V-Moda VIBES. They pack a very good, strong 'punch' of bass for the money. But until I tried the UE-700's, I didn't know what I was missing in the other frequencies (from the VIBES). But for as great as the UE's might have been, I really wasn't all that impressed. I don't know, I was just missing something. They sound kind phony to me,...
Well, I've got to wonder if the ones who state such a hatred of these must either not be getting a good seal, OR they are so used to bass-heavy equipment, and are expecting these to be also. I am NOT a basshead, but I DO like to hear the bass when its there. So far these RE0's have not disappointed --- sure the bass could be a little more forward, but I don't really feel like I'm missing much, though. . .if anything maybe it was this balance that I've been looking for...
OK, cool. . .thanks for that clarification/info  
  Hi,   Forgive me for my ignorance, but I honestly do not know what 'LOD' means. Are you referring to a type of equalizer (or something similar)?   Reason I ask is, like you I just traded for a pair of RE0's and received them today. I had posted elsewhere here (ironically, in the RE0 disappointment thread --- something I really should have posted in THIS thread instead, since I am anything BUT disappointed with them thus far) that I was very happy with the sound thus...
EDIT:   OK, well I'm sorry to have to inform everyone that, now after 200 hours of burn-in the right-side earpiece on the RE0's is completely dead.   I'm speechless, and not sure what to do now. My guess is that they are still under warranty, however I know of at least one other person this has happened to with the RE0's. So exchanging them for another pair might not make the best sense.   Does anyone have any ideas about this. What would you do if you were...
Do you mind if I ask you why you warn against using pink/white noise to burn these in?
Thanks very much for this info. It's very helpful to me. Right now I own two pairs of IE's (and no OE's, as I prefer the IE's, instead). I've got a pair of VIBES and a pair of UE 700's. The 700's are newer, and have just shy of about 200 hours of burn-in. For a long time I had been thinking that the VIBES blew away the 700's, because the bass is so much better, more detailed, tighter and more punchy, and way more evident than on the 700's. Plus the 700's have had this...
Hey meyameya,   I appreciate your review of the RE0's very much. I have been thinking very seriously about getting some for a while now.   Do you mind if I ask you a couple of questions. . .what is your source component you are using (is it an iPod or an MP3 player, or something like that)?, and. . .what are the different types or kinds of music you are listening to in making your determination about your RE0's?]   Thanks a lot!
