Hey for those interested, I was browsing the head-direct website and saw that the RE272 is finally available for purchase: http://head-direct.com/product_detail.php?p=105#

Nice. Though at $250, a bit of a tough market point as the early reviews I've read deem it as a better built, slightly improved 262. With the likes of the GR07, Sony EX600, and others popping up recently for considerably less, not sure if it priced itself out of the market.
I'll be watching the feedback, reviews and comments with great interest. I've had the RE262 for a few weeks now, and while I'm holding off making a definitive judgement until I've had more time and figured out how to get the best fit, I do like them a lot. However I have been wondering if the promised improved treble might make the RE272 a more engaging listen.
Head-Direct will probably drop the price to around $200 sometime in the future, which would probably be perfect from the looks of the reviews. Even at $250 it can be a competitive product, any improvement on the 262 makes for a very good IEM.
they arent comparable in any way other than they are both bright. the UE700 is a display in how the screw up a dual driver BA. the 272 is a display in making a dynamic driver that can spit out more detail than and ER4 with ease.
