Use one to clip near your shirt collar and the 2nd one on the mid stomach area of your shirt so the cable wouldn't bounce everywhere. Or you can just stick the entire cord inside your shirt. Problem solved. Unless you run shirtless........ rolleyes.gif
400



J-cord iems are perfect for running to me.
Yea, I have a clip attached. Clips should've been an included accessory. Why AT? Why?? I didn't try tucking it into my shirt, I'll try in the morning and pocket my ksc 75s just in case.

Nope. Those H-200's will be the last iems I ever purchase dammit. End game. END GAME YOU HEAR ME!

 

Besides, if I got the RE-400's, I'd have to get another Belkin 5x switcher lol.

Definitely more bass and treble is on the verge of being too harsh. This is marvelously refined sounding earphone (although the cable still bugs the hell out of me).

 

 

HE-400: A bit smaller soundstage, but the HE-400 clearly wins hands down in refinement, clarity, and details details details!! Someone described these as microscopic earphones. That person didn't lie. The RE-400 seems to slice right down to the heart of the notes. Female vocals (and male) are some of the most natural sounding I've heard. Notes are just a little bit shy of the 3-Dism of the CK70, but not by much. Yes, the CKN70 has the wider soundstage, but the RE-400 win in depth back and forth. I mean the notes are so rich, but detailed and clear, unlike the CKM500. There is better instrument separation in the He-400. And with all the clarity , the bass is still there and goes deep enought to hear every note. While these aren't bass monsters, the earphones is nowhere near bass deficient. Plenty of audible bass in this balanced and neutral earphone. I didn't want to like the He-400, but it's irresistible! The timbre and imaging are mindblowing. This earphone belongs here in great finds, but you will be hard pressed to find a better sounding earphone at original $100 MSRP. I know some of you may be reluctant to try it because of fear of lack of bass, but it's there (about as much as the GR-7, but of better quality) 

waynes world this is like a mixture of the HD70 with more weight and bass, better instrument separations, and way more detail. I hope more of you give this (and the H-200) a chance. 

 

Both earphones are worthy, but even with the CKN70 being cheaper by $30, the He-400 is clearly technically better.


I totally concur and couldn't have said it better myself.   Not in the diff with the CK's cause I've never heard them, but your description of the 400's are spot on.    Female vocals are insane in their texture.   It's kinda like seeing hi-def for the first time.    And every time some low bass is called for, I just shake my head thinking about those who claim that these are bass shy.

Good on you Wayne! You're finally on board... But the End Game? That's what I thought too; but what about the upcoming Dunu dn1000, Cardas 5813, Jvc Fxz1000/2000, ATH CKS1000x, audio zero Carbo basso xtreme Dx310, and etc...???? Lol!

Have you used the Phillips SHE3590 tips on the CKN70's?  Apparently it's suppose to drastically improve the sound and smooth out all the harshness.

I wouldn't call HE-400 earphones, they sit comfortably around ears :)

Hi Ds, actually I've been listening to it normally for the last couple of days while doing some tip rolling to determine the the best tip to go with it. I think I'm going with comply for now. So, I've just started the burn in ritual last night and will try to clock in about 100 hours on them.

Pardon me as I've never written any impression on sound before and will try to keep it short and simple based on what is being heard with my own ears.

For me, this would be the most neutral phone I've owned and the balance is good with just a slight emphasis on the lower bass. There's something about the bass which I really like but couldn't put a finger to it. In my own words, the mid and sub bass have good impact with just enough weight to them but the weight on the sub bass seems to weigh down thru the decay of the note till it actually bottom out. It's better felt than heard and it's in no way boomy at that.

I'm still not able to commend on the Mids and highs right now but i can safely says rhat it's very closed to what you and IF reviews had mentioned.

Overall, I'm really happy with the S2 and will try to gather my thoughts, put them in words and complete this impression after the burning in is done.

So, kindly pardon me for this incomplete impression and will try to do so in due time.
