Yes, you can. The mod is the same as RE1 treble mod I described before, and it is fully reversible. First, You need to be careful on removing the sticky filter so you can use it again. To remove the foam, just use a small pointy nose clip or anything similar to grab the foam and pull it out. Place the sticky filter and voila!

If you don't like what you head and want to place the foam back, just remember to stuff both foam in the same fashion so you won't make it too tight on one side. If you do, pull the foam out and try again.

Thanks for the review - I just read it and it looks like we came to the same conclusions about it. I am using the bi-flange tips, but some day will experiment more with the others.

You say RE252 is more in the mids than RE0. I found removing the foam on my REOs brought the mids forward. With this in mind, how would you compare RE0 without foam to RE252 with foam?

RE0 w/o foam has more upfront mid, but also introduce a little bit of sibilance. I'll say it is about on par RE252 w/ foam. Once both foam are removed, I think I'll still rate RE252 over RE0.
