Seems like I'm hearing the RE272 differently than most people... so not much I can say other than reading what people have to say here and feel better about myself 

I agree with some opinions there so maybe my ears aren't all that bad lol

I am honestly interested wink.gif. Doesn't really matter if you hear it differently than others. Since this is a review thread and not "appreciation" thread, you can feel free to comment.

which one of the two did you like better ?

I had both - at least for a week, but I did not get to compare them side by side. So, can't say for sure. Pianist too compared only e-Q7 to RE272. While many think that e-Q5 sounds very similar to e-Q7, don't think Pianist shares that opinion.

That's a concise, nice review of 272. We seem to agree on some points too :)

I bought mine at the full price $250 and I think it sounds good.



Edit: well technically I traded a K2 SP for it and got paid cash difference.

day 2 with my 272 and i have the following impressions so far (still too early so expect more feedback the following days)

1. These babies really need a burn-in period.

Yetserday ? I liked them but not THAT much.
Today ? They sound much better/fuller

I am running them through a J3/arrow amp combo , and i am using the following settings on the arrow





and they sure sound nice.

2. compared to the 262 , i like them way better - if only for the lack of treble roll-off that was so evident in the 262 and never made me love them completely


I am no expert but i like what i am hearing and after having already owned hifiman's zero/252/262 , i think 272 will be the best of them all



i will be back with more remarks in the coming days , but the fact that impressed me more these last 24 hours was how much the sound got better after 6-8 hours of break in (btw i am using dewaver's brown-bass burn-in flac file , thanx buddy!)



God , how I love good IEMs L3000.gif

Sorry I burnt these in and could notice hardly any difference at all

post #101 of 273

why be sorry for someone else's different reality ?



post #102 of 273


Whatever, they sound way better than RE0 and RE252 and that's what counts, it's a quality IEM. ;)

It is better than the RE252 and RE262 by a sizeable degree and only improves with burn in.  At more than 50 hours, Danceswithiems now finds his RE272s to be singing like the meadowlark at sunrise.


He who doubts the power of the RE272 speaks with forked tongue. 

Iktomi, Nayaha say white man not hear siyotanka sing, he say black spirt rain from far east.


I show black meadowlark to sitting bull, he say he ketunya good spirit lei, he say the winds takuskanskan, the mids skuyela and the highs toksha ake wacinyuanktin ktelo.
