Yes I know and I`m going to compare these two - REO and R-50 for semi-portable use because at home I`m perfectly fine with HD600 :)

Re0 is still a surprising iem. It's been so long since I took these out from my old iem pile. I gave it a whirl with my AK100, being a dynamic and notoriously known for sounding best amped. It sounds damn good. What an old new surprise if I may say. Ak100 and Re0 makes an odd good couple, one being a somewhat new premium player, the other an old school previous bang-for-buck iems.

If interested, I have a pair of used RE0s. The left side doesn't play sound any more.

If you can recable, you can probably fix this gem. Unfortunately, I don't have the faculty to do these type of mods.

PM me if interested. Would prefer to trade for another pair of IEMs.

Hey all,

 

Just wanted to chime in here again.  I had grabbed a spare set of RE0 when they were clearing them out just in case mine went south.  well, my originals are still going strong, so, thought I'd go a little crazy.  

 

I had my extra RE0 terminated with a balanced RSA connector.

 

I am now sitting here listening to:  Balanced CD Player --> RSA Lightning fully balanced amp --> Balanced RE0

 

Holy crap.  Truly astounding performance.  I have not heard Hifimans most recent flagship, but it would take a Lot to dethrone this setup.  I Love these earbuds.  they continue to blow my mind every time I put them in, and I've heard a LOT of high end setups.  

 

Thanks, just wanted to gush a little bit.

you should probably try RE-272 , which is made for balanced listening and it is a top-notch analytical iem even in standard listening setup

i also have 262 , and i had zero/252 in the past

hifiman may be the greatest 'under the radar' universal iem company at the moment.

Someone posted elsewhere you can pick up the re0 for $50? Does anyone know where? I'd love to get a pair, and I'm pretty sure they are still the best sounding iem at that price point.

post #457 of 458

Since the RE-0's are discontinued, is there anything else at a similar price range that is neutral and otherwise as great as these were?  If they are indeed selling for $50 somewhere, I would also indeed like to know.  Thanks!

post #458 of 458

I think they were $50 when on clearance.  I've seen them for sale used a few times.  Post a want to buy.  I've not heard the new RE series.  but I've heard that they are quite good as well.  might be worth a try.
