I ordered mine today. It will be replacing my depoded IM716. I broke its cable. I will use it unamped with my iPod Touch. Looking forward to it.

I just got my pair of re2's and I have to say I'm disappointed after the great reviews on this forum. While I wouldn't classify myself as an audiophile, the sound coming from my pair just sound really cheap... The best way to describe it is that there is no depth to the music. I think the biggest reason is that there doesn't seem to be any bass whatsoever? (And I'm not a huge bass person)
I tried them off my laptop as well as a creative zen v plus and the sound is about the same on both. No bass, and the highs are really harsh. I'll try to get my friend who is more of an audiophile then I am to take a look at them and see what he thinks, but so far, the ep-630s sound way better then this one.
I'm thinking either I got a bad pair or maybe my hearing sucks... but I'll report back in after fiddling with them a bit more.
Sorry to bump this thread but I'm not sure about a little piece of the review. Are the default biflange tips that come with the RE2 more isolating than the ER6i biflange tips (and thus written more bass) or the other way around? Also just how isolating are the Comply T400 tips with the RE2? Any changes to sound? Worth upgrading it from the default RE2 biflange tips or not? TIA.
