I too think they're not going to have as good a fit as the real Vibes, since the original's nozzle is quite a bit longer and ends in an angled, cylindric plate.
The bi-flanged tips fits damn well. With that bi-flanged tips, only the tips go into the ear anyway, the ergonomics of the phones don't really play a part.

v-moda must have used dfkt's ears as a base when they built the vibes.... he swears by their comfort. and part of that is wearing them like IEMs, not canalphones. I find them comfortable, but my etys are for me more comfortable. I'd imagine the RE biflanges would also be comfy.

The sensitivity of the 64 Ohm driver is lower than that of the 150 Ohm in the RE1s, so you need almost the exact same amount of juice to run the RE0s as the RE1s.

Are they still dynamic drivers?

I don't see holes in the back for air !

There is one unblocked hole in the back, however, it is very small.

Unlike the RE1 and RE2 (which are semi-closed), I think RE0 is fully closed. What looks like vent holes on the back of the earpieces have very little impact on the SQ when blocked. More on this topic will be included in the review.

Can we also expect a review from you? I enjoy reading yours as well, and I also like the pictures that you take for them.

Me too I often find myself sharing a very close taste with Frederik on headphone after reading his review on TPU.

The review is finally finished.

A very nicely written review. Thanks!

I'd like to point out that the RE1 and RE0 pretty much tied in everything with your current rating system (except for soundstage, which RE1 won) so yeah, I guess this is partially why you are going to revise your rating system?

Anyways, another great review. I'm having a hard choice deciding between the RE2 and RE1 still lol.
