Can Monsters Gel Tips fit the RE0's?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

Hi I was just wondering if the monster gel tips can fit the RE0's and if they can can you just tell me please?                                      Thanks in advanced

I've not personally tried, but I'd wager they do fit. Both nozzles are near the same size.

I own both of the monster foam and gel tips, and yes they fit the re0 perfectly.

Thanks, do you have the RE0's and how do they sound with the monster gels?

 

Oh and how long does the Monster Super Gels and Foamies last for?

 

Cheers

Yes I have the re0s and they sound great with the monster gels, bass was slightly punchier than the foams.

 

I didn't use mine all that long, I preferred the sony hybrids, so I cannot exactly determine the lifespan of the monster tips. However, they seem to be very well made. They should last for quite for sometime, definitely longer than stock tips.

Oh, i have Sony hybrids, does the RE0's fit them well and are they good?

Yes, the Sony hybrids fit the RE0s perfectly and provide great isolation as well as sound. I find them superior than the monster tips, but that's a matter of personal preference.

Cheers,

 

Are they hard to hard to put in into the driver unit, or?

 

And do you recommend the RE0's with Hybrids over the Sennheiser CX680's, CX500's or the Klipsch S2's?

No, they aren't difficult.

 

I haven't heard the Sennheiser CX680's, CX500's, nor the Klipsch S2's. So I can't really be the Judge.

From what I've gathered, I would assume that the RE0's are better.

Thanks for the information but theres just two question left, does the highs distort or are to harsh on about medium - high volume and can the RE0's reach it's full potential with an Ipod Nano 4g and maybe paired with a Fiio E5?

 

Cheers

On my iPod 5.5g and nano 2g it does have some distortion on high volume, not on medium volume, however. I'd say distortion starts at about 70% volume level.

A Fiio E5 may improve the re0, but not to it's fullest potential.

So do you use your RE0's often and you use them with a Nano?

 

Cheers

I do use my re0's quite often, even though the left driver has become a little bit defective, I used scotch tape to fix it as I wait for my next IEMs.

I don't use them with my nano often, but have enough to know I prefer them paired with my Sansa Fuze or Zune 120.

Is the sound quality a huge difference or?

 

Thanks

I prefer using UE and sony hybrid tips for my re0. UE gives a more neutral response and the hybrids gives it a slightly warmer presentation.

 

The Gel sounds pretty nice, nice bass response but the mids and highs are slightly drowned out. The design also makes the housing stick out more than it should.

 

Personally I like using the UE tips the best, but a lot of people have hard time getting a good seal with them, so YMMV.
