In the re-400 portion, you mention a zippered carrying case, but my package of my own re-400s did not include one. Where did you hear of this case?

Several months ago someone mentioned that they bought an RE-400 and got a case. I confirmed with HiFiMan that all RE-400s were shipping with them now (not in the packaging, but on the side). I didn't get a chance to add the info until recently. Might only apply to those RE-400s purchased directly from Head-Direct. Where did you get yours?

Huh? I got my RE-400 last week from Head Direct, and there was no case. No cable winder either, though that doesn't bother me in the slightest.

I didn't think that I got the cable winder either until I turned that foam packing material upside down.   It was underneath.

 

No case though, and I too bought mine from Head Direct fulfilled by Amazon.

Yeah, I got mine directly from Head Direct and I didn't get a case. I did get a cable winder but it's kind of unwieldy.

I guess I will ask about it again and see if you all should've received carrying cases redface.gif

Let me show you my perfect seal with my DIY multi flanges for RE-400. Prefer silicone than foams.

 

Earcanaleus Giganticus.

The small ones are.   The big one isn't.  ;)

More importantly, the Philips IEMs are a little brighter. I would recommend you try them first because I can see the treble being at the limit of someone's tolerance but they are definitely not as "hot" up top as the GR07. 

 

There is just not enough reviews for philips in-ears, and waterline is for now my choice number one, i went trough your review once more and as waterline is missing that top end something, i found 10 other in-ears that are all missing something, but more or less fit the description of what i want: 

VSonic R02 Silver

Head-Direct RE0

Head-Direct (HiFiMan) RE-ZERO

Sunrise SW-Xcape v. 1

VSonic GR06

VSonic VC02

HiFiMan RE-400 Waterline

HiFiMan RE262

 Rock-It Sounds R-50

VSonic GR01

Fischer Audio DBA-02 mkII

 

What would be most analytic but not fatiguing and musical, most extended and flat headphone in both ways, with neither bass or highs overshadowing mids, and without mid bass hump? It can definitly lean more towards analytic, but just not all the way, cuz it is my only pair for now.

Also, if there is the need, if there is tremendous difference i can go up to 200, but since this is just a temporary solution, i would like to buy cheapest one that fits the description.

 

Thank you for your reviews, they are very helpful, its not like im lazy and just want u to chew up and spit the answer for me, i have red the reviews several times, but im still a bit confused about what the best in ear for me would be at the moment, because i still have to live with it for at least 6 months if not a year or more.

One off the top of my head is the Hifman RE-272. For cheaper, you could also do the RE400.

How do they compare to Hisoundaudio Golden Crystal, or Shure SE315?
