Really enjoying the sound on my new RE262s, but what the hell is with the short cables ? Wear them over-the-ear and you feel like you have a chinstrap with the Y-cable sitting so high - I get annoyed with the ludicrously long cables on phones like the AD900, but they suddenly make sense next to the RE262's crazy short cabling. HiFiMan need to spend less on the 'display case' and more on the cabling ;)
From a sonic POV, I can relate to impressions from Joker and others - its not hard to see why this earphone wouldnt make the purists happy. Whatever - the 262s like to party and so do I !
