first post but have been doing a lot of reading over the last couple weeks. just wanted to write and say thanks for all the info. So, I am a long time music fan with a wide range in tastes from the Dead/CSN (classic hippie) rock to Reggae, modern rock (U2, Smiths, etc.), some trance ..... kind of all over the road. Well a few weeks ago the company I work for switched from Blackberry's (I would stream Pandora on it but had no down loaded music) to IPhones. I have never down loaded a piece of music in my life, though I have streamed quite a bit, so this whole ITunes thing caught my eye. Well, in the last 4 weeks I have most of my CD collection and numerous down loads loaded up on my IPhone and I am loving it except for the fact that I hated how the IPhone ear buds fell out of my ears all the time....it drove me nuts. So Google to the rescue and I found Head-fi. After doing some reading it looked like IEM's were the ticket so then i had to decide what to get. being a bit of a gear head in what ever I do I was looking at all the options and decided on the re0's. I just received them and all i can say is WOW.....while they are lacking bass compared to the Apple ear buds I can't believe how much more music there is to hear.....I mean it is night and day. Just listened to a couple "modern" Steve Winwood tracks, I have always felt that he really does a good job producing his music, and there are subtleties that I am not sure if i have ever heard before.....very cool.
So just a big thanks to Head-fi for my added listening pleasure.
