These would probably be in the range of RE0.
Now i am confused as to go for these or RE0 ( thanksgiving sale ).The RE0 got 10/10 for value at 100 and now them being 80 it must be a steal.
My prorities are soundstage, detail and neutral. But i do want something with good build quality and the cyclones look suspect there.
I will be using them via Cowon D2. I mainly listen to classic rock like pink floyd, U2, metallica and sometimes house music.
Anyone can help me making the choice??
Both are steal at the current price. For soundstage the PR1's win hands down. The RE0 are more detailed. Both are quite neutral, with the RE0 a tad on the warm side. My music preferences are very similar to yours and both work great. The Cyclones will probably work better with house/trance because they do have more present bass (though they are still a long stretch from being bass-heavy).
I guess it comes down to the build. Mine are holding up fine under regular use but I guess only time will tell.
Edit: Also, I just gave the Cyclones a run using the iBasso D10 as an amp and they scale up admirably. I still wouldn't recommend getting an amp with them since that defeats the purpose of budget earphones, but they do have more potential than my Fuze can unlock.
