RE0 Broken! - Page 2

post #16 of 27

I wrote off the company as far as build quality goes (RE2 and RE0 lasted well under a year). I have no qualms with them personally, everything was made square.

Well, are there any similar alternatives? I've read about the Sunrise XCape IE, but they use the same housings, right?

Well, RE-ZERO also suffers from the same poor build quality issues. Good luck, OP!

I bought a used ER4P for around $120 and never looked back. The build quality is night and day compared to the Hifiman products.

I just got the re-zero. Sound great. Haven't had any problems thus far and hope I got a good pair! sad to see so many complaints.

Don't kill off his hope!! :P

 

Anyway that certainly did put me off from wearing my Re-0 more often... which in turn made me wear my headphones more often when I go out. Guess it all works out, over-the-ear types are warmer for winter anyway, though I can hide IEMs under my hat.. hm..

Kind of the reason I bought these in the first place. Wanted a pair of in ears so I can wear them under my hat during winter. My m50 would certainly keep me warm as well but don't want to risk it.

I have had my second pair of RE0 break down on me and only now did I see this tread. These are crap and head-fi should not rate them as highly as you do on the ratings page.

Ok. Wow, I need to edit my post. I think I understand why they're rated so high now. I've owned a pair before that have broken on me 3 times, but I got a new pair as a gift and wow the sound quality compared the headphones I was listening to is really incredible. It's so crystal clear. Does anyone have any advice for keeping the Re0s in proper shape? Will wrapping my headphones from top to bottom in Electric tape help the situation?

Recable and glue if/when necessary.

Not sure if recabling will work. I've read many accounts previously that the drivers failed. I don't know if the claims are trustworthy but its possible... despite not knowing exactly how drivers can fail.
