HiFiMAN RE-272 Review - Page 25

post #361 of 450

so my beloved 272 started losing sound from one ear (bad cabling perhaps?) and i had to send it over at Hifiman HQ

They are still covered by warranty , so all is fine I guess and I am covered

Did anyone got a replacement 272 back lately ? I am wondering if there are any 272s in stock for such cases as mine - or i may have to receive another model of theirs as a replacement which is not what i had in mind - i really loved my 272

I don't know if anyone has any in stock anywhere.  A quick search didn't turn up anything.  I went ahead and ordered a second pair a few months ago and put them back in case something happens to my original pair.

my guess is , if hifiman has run out of stock on 272 , they will probably provide me with a re600

i will keep you guys posted

its fairly typical for companies to keep a few around but you never know, it would be silly to have tons sitting just in case.

 

not sure what youd make a 600 though, you did love the 262 too didnt you?

i tried the re600 for 15 days , it is very nice , like an improved 262 but i already have 2 pairs of 262 so i 'd rather get a new 272 as a replacement for the faulty one as it has been my favourite iem thrse last 3 years

anyway i will let you know what happens once they receive the faulty one

anyone else in here in love with this iem ? judging that it has been discontinued and it never had the hype that other iems enjoy , i don't think there are many 272 jedis left around here :p

I am enjoying my pair since i got the replacement from Hifiman. Some artists just sound otherworldly with these IEMs as i have stated in the past...not straight out of the iPod though, i use a mini^3 amp, and it does make a difference that is good to my ears...

yeah a good amp beefs them up quite nice - i par them with my arrow amp

 

I also have re262 and eq5 and as much as enjoy both of them, there is something magic in how 'non-fat' re272 sounds like

lean,mean and eager to please :p

These 272s are detailed. And do not really hide bad mastering, hence, a bit choose-ey. You would be amazed at how many albums are badly mastered. But then i guess, for every 10 bad mastered albums there is one awesomely mastered album. I have found nicely done almubs, liked some, did not like some (Genere preference based choice)Edit1. 

Beck, The Doors, Ben Howard, Bon Iver sound otherworldly on my setup. I heard the songs that are on chesky's albums, and i was amazed at what I could hear. The RE272 IEM is out of the league, but i would want to compare it against an RE0 and RE-ZERO, as i was impressed by them too.....

thankfully i am not into the current pop **** stuff but into GOOD music and i have managed to find very good-to-great vinyl rips for almost 95% of my favourite albums (and these VR kick the ass of all this 'audiophile' cd versions)

so yeah 272 + vinyl rips = very nice sound.

 

i also had the re-zero and the re272 blows it out of the water , but i was very pleased with it - for the same price as re400 (99$) i liked the re-zero waaaaaay much more than the re400

hifiman is a killer company soundwise/bang-for buck , all criticism drives from material problems (cables etc)

i wish they bring 272 back in production , i think it nails the kind of sound i like.

All it needed was a better cable, that's it!  I'd buy a 5 Re-272's at a time.  The price is so good, it quenches my ever hungering thirst for customs.

1st bold : you can always have them recables (vesper audio for instance) - i am gonna do so when my pair breaks down

2nd bold : ditto for my upgraditis , i don't think there are many better iems for 200$

post #373 of 450

It looks like HIfiman has some 272s in stock - i got back my replacement pair , i was afraid they would send me a 400/600 instead

This is one hell of an analytical/balanced IEM , i will never sell my pair (unless i buy a 1000$ custom iem :p )

Great job Hifiman :beerchug:

I'm still greatly in love with my RE-272's, can't listen to any other IEM's anymore :etysmile: That leads me to the following question. I'm looking to get a headphone (over ear/on ear/open/closed) that has the same sound signature of the RE-272's. The only thing they may have a bit more is the bass you can feel but I guess that's a given with full sized cans since there's just a lot more air moving. I looked at the HE-400's an 500's but the 400 is v-shaped and the 500 isn't really good for portable use since I'm going to be using a DX90 solely for playback. So is anybody with more experience able to help me find a good suited headphone for me?

I am no expert on headphones , but i think the HD600 is kinda 272-ish

if i had money to buy an budget HP , this seems like a good choice - anyway do some research or ask in the headphones thread
