I've seen nothing but bad experiences with detachable cables.  I'd never changed cables on the Etymotic ER-4P and the sound started cutting out.  Unplugged and replugged the stock cables a few times to see if the problem would go away.  Cue the whole socket coming out with the plug eek.gif

 

My friend's megabuck UE11 had drivers crap out twice on him during warranty. (might have something to do with static electricity from a faulty iPod)  But what really killed it for him was... guess what?  The wires inside the socket breaking and cutting out the sound.  Again.

 

Meanwhile, I've never had the cables themselves break on any headphones I owned.  Including the SHE3580 with cheap-as-cheap-can-be wires.  Excepting the Sennheiser HD580, which my wife regularly yanked out of headphone sockets by pulling on the wire instead of the plug eek.gif

This guy.................. attached cables can be a pain in the @ss on portable cans. Plus they don't have that sexy bling factor if worn on the neck with the cables running everywhere. Hasn't beats taught you anything regarding "fashion" and trendy headphone wear sheeeeesh!!! happy_face1.gif

 

Cuz i wanna be kool like Lebron James and sport my headphones like he does. :)

Being able to replace cables is nice if you want to replace the cable that came with your iem/hp. I'd love to have the option of changing my AD900X cable for something shorter when I want to use it portably. The cable on my Koss DJ100 (TBSE) is short but coiled, but fortunately it is detachable, so I'll be able to get a replacement for it.

Forget about all the mumble jumble, it's ALL about that bling bling factor meng. Attached cables just don't make the cans bling as much. deadhorse.gif

I had the chance to audition the RE400 and RE600 side-by-side with the HM901. Right off the bat I thought it was the same headphone with a different paint job.

In the end there is a bit more refinement, but not $300 worth.

The RE400 is an excellent choice and a much better value.

The RE600 just doesn't offer the SQ and features I'd expect for it's premium price tag.

Short and right to the point. Thanks for letting us know!

There goes the RE-600 hype duggehsmile.png

Edited, though it's clear from the context to which one I was referring.

I can't afford any of those fancy Chinaman H/REs for the life of me so i'll just stick with my inferior Jpnese made cheapos. Who knew that MADE IN CHINA commands such a premium nowadayz. triportsad.gif

You mean like every mass manufactured things nowadays? And yes, that probably include your ATH, well unless you have something like W3000ANV.

Yeah, and made by an old guy in the back of his Japanese tea shop, hand made.  The wood is aged just right, with all the earphones getting  wood from the same aged tree... or something like that.

Parts hand picked and assembled while the guy sips on his tea.

 

Granted the old guy is a former Sony engineer...

Sometimes you do get what you pay for.

 

And did I mention limited production? When it's done it's done, no more ever produced again? Run was like 200 pieces. And guess who is getting one of those ksc75smile.gif

All of those doesn't really matter to consumer, we only care about how it sounds, comfort and build quality. Who cares if a cans is made in a sweatshop in some hellhole in china (though I hope not) if it sounds and made as good as the price or better.

 

Now I dunno how RE-600 sounds or if it justify the price but I'll be careful with a short listening impression on a noisy uncomfortable environment with songs he/she's not familiar with.

Gonna guess those are pointed my way.
Short session, no noise problems, songs I've listened to hundreds of times. I swapped straight away from the 400 to the 600.

I'm not going to say you might not have a different opinion, but after talking with others that did the same, it was unanimous.

If I have to strain over the course of hours to detect subtle changes, then it's not worth another $300 to me; Maybe it is to others.

I can see additional cost for the better build quality, but this is simply one option. Try it for yourself and come back to tell me why I'm wrong. I'd love to hear others opinions.

I totally agree. I can imagine making the wrong impression with the H200 if I auditioned them in a wrong environment. TBH I seem to get its true potential only when I'm at home with no distraction for complete immersion to the music. Then... magic happens! I expect the RE600 to do that if it is indeed a flagship model.
