You don't have to wait for answer, just order it. Should not be a problem, but even if it is they'll let you know during check out.

I have ordered from mp4nation for a friend in another country with my card.

How are you liking the RE400s?

I'll be doing the same, haha...well, I baby all my stuff anyway tongue.gif I think the cable is still better than some others I've tried, but from memory I liked the RE-ZERO cable slightly better.  I like your analogy thought haha.  Very initial imrpressions (I was busy most of yesterday but I got to try them for about 30 minutes) they're pretty fantastic.  I'll be doing some more critical listening on my work commute during the week, but as it stands I think they are a good complement to the BE, I'm really enjoying the mids especially for vocal and acoustic tracks.  MattTCG (the guy I exchanged my BE with for his MKII to demo) also recently borrowed a pair from a friend, so I'm interested to see his impressions comparing those two.  I'd say that the GR07s have a bit more lower bass extension, but the RE-400 still sounds really good in the bass department.  Further impressions to come, though. biggrin.gif  I think until the GR07 Classic comes out (assuming the drivers are the same), they are the best value, highest price to performance ratio in IEMs at the moment.

I only finally got the bass on my RE400s after I used the DIY tips I made. It sounds so good now. When I leave the house I'm torn between taking the RE400s and the GR07 BEs and in the end only taking the GR07 BEs because I need to burn them in. BTW, they are sounding more and more fantastic each day. The RE400s are, in my opinion more mid-centric and neutral than the BEs

I bought the BE when it initially went on sale but when I choose USD as the currency, it converts to $133.25, not $129.40. I know it's just around $4 but I was curious why there's a difference.

could be the difference between the spot rate and the exchange rate with a big spread

Yeah, I picked up some additional silicone tips (as that is my preference) from meelectronics and HiFiMan has a separate variety pack with different options but I think I may get a pair of Comply Ts-400 just to see how foamies are with them.  I've had both with me so I can A-B, but I was under the impression that the RE-400 would be more mid-centric, and that's what I was after initially to complement my BE, and I think together they are great.  Bass is still quite good on the RE-400, and my impressions are still initial, as I've only had about 45 mins to test them so far.  No regrets in this purchase, just like the BE biggrin.gif

Listening yo the BEs right now and the bass seems boomy, and quite a bit more than yesterday. Might be the tracks but it's happened on 3 tracks in row.

The re400 is really really tip dependent imo

Do you use foam tips on your BE?  Yeah, I'll be tip rolling the RE-400 this week/weekend.
