So I've been looking around alot, and even though my NE-6 have been serving me well, I'm having one of those impulse buy moments but figure I should post/ask around first. Anyways, the RE0s have piqued my interest because all of my past IEMs/headphones have had some sort of bass emphasis or other; I'm pretty curious as to what the RE0s, or a generally analytical-sounding/less bassy IEM would sound like, and how much I'd enjoy it (85% of my music is metal/rock), plus the RE0s have gotten good reviews for just about everything, almost, minus the bass-light-ness. Guess I'm going cold turkey on that, haha. Anyways, I have a few questions regarding the RE0
-is it pretty okay coming from an ipod nano 5th gen unamped? i've seen alot of posts about people using various amps to make up for their source deficiencies, so I'm just hoping if I do get em I won't be listening to just half their potential
-the pic on head-direct of the RE0 appears to be the straight plugged, fiber knit cloth version. is that what's being sold now or has it just not been updated to the PPE cabled, L-cable version?
-how do i justify getting a new pair of IEMs when my NE-6s are going strong? LOL
-if i do justify it, should i actually go for it, or wait and see if there're new things coming out that could be even better? eg. the new jays line coming this summer, or the maximo m790.
-while i know the RE0s will be basslight, will i at least be able to follow the bass guitars playing in metal/rock?
-is it physically possible for analytical IEMs like the RE0 to get fists pumping, feet tapping, heads banging?
-anyways i think that's it, thanks in advance :)
