Hey guys, I just received my V2 and I think it's pretty awesome. One thing's for sure, they really sound flat. The soundstage's pretty wide though I tend to think they are abit soft on my iPhone 4 and iPod Touch so much that I thought my ears were starting to fail me.
I played Muse and Bon Iver and thought they were horrible at the beginning then I started realizing the Xcape is really special. They make music sound pretty realistic as IEMs. The bass of the Xcape also isn't strong but it's there when it's needed.
Very good for the price.
The cables feel like they might break anytime though.
I've had 3 hours on them. They just keep getting better.
I have my Xcape v2 with me for a few days but didn't have chance to fully burn them in. It has been 38 hours so far so and I haven't noticed any improvement. But as it is recommended by the seller, they need 150 hours to be fully burned in. So I still have a long way to go.
I also have received my RE0 this morning. I can say that build quality of the Xcape v2 is not better than the RE0. I have the latest version of RE0 with L-shaped plug and it looks quite solid where Xcape v2 gives me the impression that it is more fragile. The cable on the RE0 is very slightly thicker than Xcape.
As both the RE0 and Xcape v2 are pretty new. I don't think it would be convenient to make any comments or a comparison about their sound signature. And I didn't hear the Xcape v1 before so I can't make any comparison among v1 and v2 as well. Sorry about that.
Very interesting, from what I have gathered, the RE0's are notorious for breaking @ the jack, and with the introduction of the new jack on the Xcapes... you'd think that they would be better than the RE0's.
I have narrowed down my next IEMs to the REOs or the V2 Xcapes. Looks like it will be a while before the two are reviewed.
