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.
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.
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.
