Etymotic HF5 vs Hifiman RE-ZERO

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi.

 

I've been searching for new IEMs, neutral, sturdy, w/ good isolation, and my choice has been narrowed down to these :

 

Etymotic HF5 and Hifiman RE-ZERO.

 

I can get each one for the same price (~90 euros)

 

I can't really decide despite reading several reviews. What would you advice ?

Etymotic hf5

It beats the RE-ZERO in SQ, isolation and build quality. This is my opinion.

+1 for HF5

In my honest opinion, I think the RE0 has better SQ than the HF5.  It had better bass extension and texture as well as a more controlled high end when I tested directly.  My RE0s have since then broken (so no more direct comparisons :(). 

 

That said, my vote still goes towards the HF5 for better build quality.
