HiFiMAN RE-272 Review - Page 24

post #346 of 488
Thread Starter 

well the 272 was pretty bass light, nothing a bass boost button couldnt fix though.  still its resolution was just so phenomenaly good.  to dote ive not heard an IEM that can touch it.

But, the bass on the RE272 was deeper than its cousins, i think. I have heard bass (notice: 'heard') on the RE272 that i couldn't tell was there, when i listened using mt TF10s. The extension is better on the RE272. Another thing i noticed was, the RE272 performed phenomenally when powered properly, i.e, with an amp. I wasn't quite satisfied with the sound straight out of an iPod Nano 7G. Another thing is, the RE0, that i used to own, did not really have a character of its own. It always used to sound different on different sources....but for the RE272, they do have a character that stays the same over alot of sources. Detail retrieval was awesome on these. They sound more natural than any IEM i have heard.

i am using my 272 with an arrow 4G , and the bass boost on '1'

the amp tightens up the sound , and the bass boost beefs up the lows

 

i got a re400 , but i never listened to it - compared to the 272 it sounded grainy and anemic

whoever tried this baby , is lucky.

2 years and still going strong with this iem

I recieved mine about two weeks ago and let them burn in for about a week (on and off). After listening I almost immediately sold my 262's. What a lovely sound, I don't even know where to begin.

How does the 272 compare to the ER4S?

These 272s, are not that power hungry, as all the reviewers have said. But people who own these, do not underestimate the power of an amp. 

 

I am using the Mini^3 with my RE272s. The best presentation I have ever heard. Spacious. The clarity is superb. A little bit of power seems to help the 272s along way. The presentation becomes more powerful, the effects have more presence, and the placement of various instruments is also very clear. These are detailed. More so than the TF10s i have. It is nice how they let you hear sounds you have never heard before (Coming from the TF10s). Also, I like Miles Davis alot better on these. Basically jazz sounds awesome on these. Bass is ofcourse less on these, lesser than the conventional earphones, but i can let go of the base for all the things they let me hear and how well they do placement.

 

Regards

 

 

EDIT: Oh and Bon Iver is beautiful on these earphones. The TF10s in comparison overdo the thickness in his songs. But the RE272s, oh so delicate. People, these are awesome earphones, listen to them and you will be mesmerized. well some of you will be if not all.

 mind that not everyone heard them, i mean they arent the mythical perfect IEM but they were the absolute best at what they did.  the clarity and detail on them was insane.

 

what is sad though is that they and their siblings, the 252 and 262 and even the almighty and venerable RE-0 are no longer in production.  that is a real shame.

yeah , because people get fooled and end up spending money on overpriced/overated/hyped iems from major companies like shure / westone etc

 

marketing is a virus , bill hicks had some good points.....

well id not go so far as to say shure/westone are overpriced.  i could give over hyped to westone.  they and grado seem to get what id call fanboi-ism.  mostly they just are aiming for different things and i think mostly once you reach a abouve £100 then cost begins to not matter so much.  it begins to really be much more about what matches your needs and those willing to pay over that tend to not be so locked to price.

i have both and i think 272 is the one i grab more often , but 262 is no slouch either , especially when paired with my arrow 4G amp

 

compared to my EQ-5 , both 262/272 sound more laid back and comfy as a sonic image - i think EQ-5 has the mids too upfront and it is at times a bit tiring....
