Non-mic version has a different cable. Strain relief should be the same though.
As for vocals:
- Male vocals are slightly recessed, only slightly though (compared to the rest of the mids). They still retain great dynamics though which bring great vocalists to life, but can't do anything to the boring dry vocalist (something Etymotics can do well in my opinion). They still seem natural though.
- Female vocals are a little forward compared to the mid-range instrumentals. It's a lot more lively than male vocals.
- Overall, the vocals are not the best, but they can give other IEMs a run for their money. The vocals, like the mids, are not the focus of these IEMs, so if you are looking for a mid/vocal-focused IEM, these aren't it. The main focus for me seems to be the low end on these.
oh many thanks
seems like i'd cancel my order. i thought the lows werent that strong
but to be sure how you compare the vocals to the RE0 's?
