Re-262 No Go. How about RE-272.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Just purchased the RE-262 and have been listening to them for about 2 weeks.  I love the detail and clarity and the build/fit is really nice.  However the mids seem to forward to me and the overall sound is alittle "hollow" for my tastes.  I prefer a balanced sound, the PFE-112 is one of my favorite IEM's..   I also own the Klipsch X10 and the UE Triple-fi.

 

I really want an IEM with the clarity and detail of the RE-262, but with alittle more overall balance (similar to the Phonak).  Would the RE-272 work?

 

What bout the CK10?  I have read alot about this phone and most people seem to really like it.  The only problem is how can I buy it in the US?

The Etymotic HF5, RE272, CK10, Sony EX7550 presents more balance and they sound detailed in mids, highs with good bass response.

Head over to ClieOS concise multi IEM thread and ask him.  He's had a lot of experience with the various Hifiman phones and can give you the best advice on the RE272 in comparison to the RE262.

You can't purchase it from a US retailer/etailer.  Instead you have to purchase from an importer like Accessory Jack but they are temporarily out of stock:
