“ These were my first real earphones, and I bought them entirely because they'd been spreading like a plague on a forum I used. Upon first hearing them I was disappointed, but over time they grew on me, and until upgrading to the ER4, they were a firm favourite. Some of my friends couldn't get the fuss, nor understand why anybody would spend a hundred bucks on iPod earphones, but then again...” --BBBS

“After I bought the HD 598s, I was soon looking for a portable set of headphones or IEMs for casual use on the bus or outside. Sure enough, I found the lauded HifiMAN RE-400 to be an interesting option and even with concerns of durability and the possibility that a neutral sound signature wasn't for me, I bit the bullet. Were they worth it? Comfort, Design and Accessories: ...” --Garraty
“ Thanks to the folks at HiFiMan for sending me a sample of their latest IEM to review. Well, let’s get right to it. This is HiFiMan’s in ear monitor flagship, the RE-600 “Songbird”. Replacing the previous flagships, the RE-262 and RE-272, the RE-600 has some big shoes to fill, and with a $399 price tag attached, higher than either of its predecessors, it’s certainly got its...” --TheGame21x
“ I'm not great at writing reviews, but I'm bored right now and I thought I'd take the time to "honor" the RE0's. I've bought/sold/heard many IEM's in the past, stuff like: IE8, W3, PFE, SE530, TF10, X10 etc. Before the RE0's went on that $99 sale, I came to the conclusion that the W3's were the IEM's for me, X10 and SE530 came in a close second, but anyway, my point is, I was quite satisfied...” --koven
“ Thanks to Nankai, aka Fang for the RE272 Loaner opportunity. Pros: Clarity, detail, packaging Cons: Bass, too analytical Equipment Used Sources: MacBook Pro, iPod Classic Amp/DACs: iBasso D-Zero Packaging Luxury. That's the first thing I thought when I saw...” --keanex

“ First off let me preface by stating that I bought these on a whim. I had read many things about Etymotic's penchant for accurate reproduction. The initial impressions I got from these were a mixed bag. First off, I love the isolation factor, putting these on in the middle of a crowded communal area was like stepping into a library. I tried the various silicone...” --Exarch
“ Introduction First, I’d like to thank Fang at Head-Direct once again for generously providing me with a RE-262 review sample. HiFiMan has come a long way in just a few short years. Priding themselves on offering exceptional sound quality for a relatively low price, Their RE line of in ear monitors has been a perennial favorite at forums such as Head-Fi for their very high...” --TheGame21x
