None of the five tip sets included give me decent results.

I took the tips from my MDR-EX75 et voilà !

Now I can enjoy these RE0.

 

Thank guys for the idea,

 

Sony Hybrids work wonders on the RE0.  They make the bass nice and punchy and tame the highs.

I don't know how far the tips can change the sound, but they don't lack bass IMHO.

For top quality sound, it requires an airtight seal (or as close to one as possible), nothing too hard, but also not too soft.  Each tip makes a dfferent seal with your ear, some good, some bad, but one great/perfect.

And people like me can need different Tips for both ears..... I am still learning about tips....tips that create perfect vaccum can kill the SQ of some phones....looking forward to custom tips from Etymotics......

And yeah, one of the things with the RE0s is, tips help u get the SQ or if u say, improve the SQ a bit/to ur liking....they always do...but u have to experiment a lot with tips to get the best of the IEMs.

And over that, AMP an RE0....u'd love what u get. U'd get all the bass u were missing.....

Perfect vaccum = no air = no sound (sound needs to travel through air).  If you get a perfect vacuum, you want it to equalize out afterwards (let air pressure get back in without destroying the seal.

How could i just forget that, but by perfect vaccum, i never meant perfect vaccum....it was like relatively comparable air pressure, which is the lowest when compared to others, substantially kills the SQ.

Yeah, the low air pressure is due to to the low amount of air molecules, which doesn't give sound enough to travel through, so that does make sense.  This can also be a cause of driver flex as well (so both of those playing in to create bad SQ).  You still want a great seal, but an acoustic seal (with air pressure; but the outside is sealed off like the vacuum seal).  That would be the best seal possible.

aaaaand... back to the original topic :)

 

For a while i was so impressed with the RE0s.. As time passed though, it did get kinda boring being so neutral. I guess I like some coloration in my sound =P

@meyameya, that happens with me and my RE-ZEROs alot....to a point that i start hating them.....

post #55 of 56
I don't think the ZEROs are neutral, not enough bass on them and treble too peaky for my tastes.

Standard advice would be to:
1. give it more burn-in, maybe around 30 hours at least.
2. use different tips, I use Sony hybrids
3. these improve A LOT with proper amping, so maybe give portable amps a thought
4. maybe the sound of RE0 just isn't your cup of tea (they are quite light on the bass afterall)


Personally I think the Re0 is just not his thing. None of the first three steps are going to really drastically alter the sound, except the tips which by far have the largest impact on an IEM's sound.
