No. RE272 has other wow factors of its own. Read this.

the conclusion that i got from this review is that RE272 does not have that X-factor that RE262 have,its more analytical and not musical or enjoyable.

Enjoyable is quite a very personal thing. Analytical and musical can both be enjoyable to different person. But in between the two, I'll say RE262 is probably more easy going than RE272 regarding sound signature. Personally, I enjoy both.

if you have to choose between both of them which one will you choose and why??

 

post #6 of 28

RE272, because I am more of an analytical listener.

b/w both of them which one excels in vocals both male and female.

If your focus is about vocal, then definitely choose 262.. as it's mid is thick and detailed...

Vocal is a strength of RE262

does RE262 soundstage gives out of head or real like feeling in a concert ????

post #11 of 28

Even some of the best soundstage I have heard in IEM (HifiMan RE1 with a well matched amp, TF10 and DDM) doesn't actually go out-of-head like a full size cans.

I've auditioned 262 last week.. If compared to other IEM, I can say that the soundstage is huge...

My preference might be differ than yours... and if you can, do a little audition on 262 before you purchase it...

@ClieOS does that give a feeling that i am in a concert or make a 3D sound?

@nfinite what will be your preference?? unfortunately i cannot audition before purchasing because i live in india and here even finding top companies IEM is difficult.

RE262 and RE272 have better soundstage than many full sized headphones and most IEMs - it has excellent depth and sense of space. If you want the best sense of air, go with JVC FX700. Shure SE530 also has a very nice soundstage. RE262 and 272 have perfectly good soundstages for IEMs though.

 

Also, I have to disagree that RE262 has better vocals that RE272. Maybe they are more fun sounding on the RE262, but I find RE272 has more natural vocal reproduction, whereas the RE262 sounded a bit too thick to be realistic.

Concert? Yes, but it is still a concert in between your ears, not out-of-head.

 

@Pianist - it is that thickness that gives RE262's vocal an extra layer of texture and intimacy. It is that texture and intimacy that I consider RE262 to have better vocal than RE272. That's is not to say RE262 has more accurate vocal than RE272. But for anyone who are looking for vocal and vocal only, I think RE262 will be much more favorable..
