[Pictorial Review] Head-Direct's RE2 - Page 5

post #61 of 103
I have RE2's also. The bi-flanges never fit. I'm using the large single flanges and they seal pretty well. As with most or all IEM's, seal is vital in order to get sufficient bass response.

I was using the large single flanges, but my ears got sore after a bit, the medium are working so far, but I may try some of the foam inserts i read about to stiffen them up a bit. not sure, I'm going to live with them like this for a bit, then try different. I've considered looking into the FiiO little amp a bit later for fun. supposed to increase bass as well as overall soundstage. cant go wrong for the bucks. we'll see

Speaking of which, how do you folks squeeze the damned single flanges on? I'm having an ass of a time trying to get mine to fit as I have only tried to swap out the bi-flanges recently. They're incredibly small...

I use the 135 degree approach: Put the nozzle and the flange ar an 135 degree angle of each other, push the nozzle in on one corner than turn it back to 180 degree.

Invert the flanges first then use clieos's method. Much easier that way. Though still difficult.

Wow, it worked.

I have RE2's a I think there great, with an added CMoY... damn its really good. What full-size headphones do you guys think have the most 'RE2-like' sound?
post #68 of 103
how do these compare to the um1's (sound sig)?

Hey guys, just bumping this thread as i don't wanna start another one.

I think I'm gonna get a pair of RE2s soon but i have some questions before i do so.

I love good mids/highs and soundstage, so the RE2s would probably suit me right? How about the etymotic ER6i? I've read that the RE2s are a step up from the ER6is and even though the ER6is have really clear highs, they tend to lack soundstage? Can anyone confirm this please?

Do you guys think there are any more phones that i should consider besides these two? My budget is around $80

Ohyea and i listen to mainly jazz, indie rock and classical and will be using my samsung t10 DAP with a cmoy.

Cheers

Umm..anyone? It would be great to get some insight.

The RE2's have quite a bit of soundstage from what i heard from my pair. I haven't heard the er6i's but i can tell you the RE2's are very good at the price they're at.

The only thing ER6i is clearly better than RE2, IMO, is isolation. I prefer RE2 over ER6i for all other things.

Agree with above.

The RE-02 get my full recommendation for IEMs under $100

Alright cool, thanks guys! I guess the RE2s are the phone for me then

Burning-in a pair that will hit 48 hours later this afternoon - will post a link to my review when the burn-in is done.

Initial impressions are that it is a detailed and forward sounding IEM without too much or too little bass. It is more forward but with slightly less bass than a Nuforce NE-7M, but with more bass than an NE-8 (which is a good thing). Kinda like the differences in a Grado RS-1 (less forward more bass) vs RS-2 (more forward less bass). Vocals and guitar with Jack Johnson are good. It will be interesting to see where they go as I complete burn-in.

The cable is now a 1 piece without extension, unlike the photos in post #1.
