HEAD-DIRECT RE2 and Fiio E5 Combo - $39 ($48 shipped)

post #1 of 6

Just picked up this nice little combo because I wasn't getting enough isolation from the MDR-EX71. I know these aren't the very best for isolation, but I don't like to use expensive earphones on a day-to-day basis. I'm afraid I'll lose them. This seems like good bang for the buck in the isolation department. I can now listen to music on my motorcycle without worrying that I'm pushing my earphones (or ears) too hard.

Looks like a slight design change from what I saw in reviews. The RE2 now has a plastic L end instead of the straight end I saw in review.

I'm excited to have my first headphone amp, even if it's just a baby one.

First impression is a major drop in bass output, in exchange for a much cleaner and more detailed midrange. Also, I felt that while the RE2 produced less bass overall, the response was much more linear than the EX-71s. For example, I Like the Way You Move (OutKast) didn't have the sudden drop in volume at the deepest bass note that I've experienced elsewhere. Very pleasurable for listening to Rap, IMO.

Hoping for improvements as they burn in. Final conclusion: pretty kick-ass for $29.

I bought the combo also...expecting them to arrive sometime this week. Does the amp improve the SQ at all or does the RE2 work pretty well by itself?
