Rawster can I ask that you compare the RE-Zero on a rockboxed clip+ and on original firmware?

If you can give me a good reason to since I don't know what the point of that would be.

I find that rockboxing the clip+ changes significantly the sound it puts out. You can also check how good/bad it responds to EQing.

I guess I should have stated that in the review. When listening to the clip+ for this review it was all done with Rockbox and not the OF. I can't be bothered to deal with the piece of crap sansa UI.

The RE252 is an outstanding earphohne, basically one of my favorites.  The RE0 was not one I particularly liked, but I unfortunately had it before I owned a robust enough amp to really drive it well.  The RE252 is quite a bit different than the RE0, significantly so.

I too wonder this.  It seems like an obvious move taking a good low ohm driver that's already available, tweaking the driver and enclosure, and creating a new product.  Frankly I wouldn't be mad if this was the case as I do quite like the RE252 driver.  Is this how the RE-ZERO was born?  I kind of doubt it.  I feel there's a little more freedom than that to really be constrained to and reuse a single driver through multiple products.  If anything, the RE262 that will eventually come out will be something along those lines.  Really anything at this point is just wild speculation.

Great , detailed review without sounding 'know-it-all'

 

I want to ask you something about the tips

 

Should i buy some from an internet retail or the ones included in the package will do fine ?

 

i ask because a friend is bringing it over from london in 20 days and if i should buy some tips , i have to do so via internet (where i live , tips are a joke)

 

if i should buy which ones would you suggest ?

 

i am no basshead so i dont mind getting extra bass and i am mostly into rock(classic 70s and grunge 90s ),triphop and miles davis electric 70s style jazz

 

 

any suggestions ?

 

 

if you want any more info on my listening style , plz go ahead.

It really comes down to you whether you want to get other tips or not. I can't tell you if they will fit properly or not. I do typically use triple flange tips from Monster but those are not available for sale. However there are fake Monster triples out there on ebay which are similar to the real thing. Lots of people also use sony hybrid tips or the fake on ebay since you can choose size on the fake ones. I find the smaller biflange tip very nice if biflange tips can work for your ears. I'd probably just get them first and then see if the stock tips work. If not I would go on ebay and buy some fake sony hybrid tips.

Assuming this signature is for you you should be in for a treat. These are quite enjoyable and easily my best universal earphone (although I don't own any top tier universals anymore) and quite the performer for $99.

Could you tell me where to find those fake Monster triple flanges on eBay? Been looking but couldn't find any. Thanks!

post #42 of 136

I am interest in trying the fake monster tips as well.

I dont want to use the adapters and amps

What is it like comparing Re0 and ReZero without the amps or adapters?
Is it really worth it spending another $20 for the ReZero?

The ebay seller is lostearbuds which also sells many tips as well. The fake ones are quite similar except in color and material. I compared them a while but but color wise the fake one has a lighter shade of black and is not as stiff as the Monster triple flange although neither are very stiff like a Shure triple flange. Sound wise they are same as it should be.

 

I no longer have the RE0 but I do enjoy the RE-Zero. I do not find the adapter a big problem and I found carrying an extra cable, amp and some kind of rubber band or similar to hold the dap and amp together a much bigger issue. I no longer amp my portable setup so if an earphone cannot be used straight out of my clip+ or J3 I do not get it. That said I found the RE0 and D2+ just fine. They are both good but since I do not have them both I cannot compare them but some people do have both. It's just a slightly different sound signature but both are good value buys. I sold my RE0 around 7-8 months ago so a valid comparison cannot be done by me.

Thanks rawrster, for the link!

 

So, about the RE-Zero, is this an improved version of the RE-0? I'm interested in the RE-0, but it looks like the RE-Zero is the best to get now?
