upgraditis is dormant - but for how long ?

Then just walk away. I had the pleasure of listening to the RE272, and it's a great phone. Sometimes you have to ask yourself if you've crossed the line of overconsumerism.

I'm almost willing to bet that you'd get more satisfaction from buying several more albums with the RE600 money, than you would from a new headphone.

Once you understand why you want something, you may not find your desire so strong anymore.

There it was, your moment of zen smily_headphones1.gif

Welcome to Marketing - the militant wallet murdering arm of capitalism.

You hear that whisper? "Think you're happy with what you have? Think again buddy. Now you can be 113% percent new improved happier. Just sign here."

Market forces are a shark - gotta keep moving and devouring.

Don't believe the hype. Happy with the re-272? STEP AWAY FROM THE FORUM SIR.

No one is forcing you to keep a product. If you don't think it's worth its cost, simply return and get a full refund. If you like the RE-600, consider selling the RE-272 to recover some of the wallet damage. Bottom line: you're not forced to keep anything you don't want. If you're afflicted with consumerism because you buy into every marketing hype, that's your own problem - don't blame it on capitalism.

Under a properly implemented Socialist Audiophile regime, teams of the world's top scientists would work shifts to create the ultimate iem. And every citizen - man, woman, child and furry pet - would get a free pair.

like i said , i am 100% happy with my RE-272 so i ain't planning on buying RE-600 , unless my RE-272 break down OR  i win the lottery

 

thanx everyone for all the zen/consumerism tutorials , but these should be preached to the people buying 1000$ iems just because they think they need them wink_face.gif

 

muzeick , how is the re-400 ? we should arrange a get-together and try them out (that is , if i remember correctly your real-life ID)

Proedros - you are correct. We should indeed meet soon. However my re-400s broke a week or so ago, so are waiting for replacements right now. Bummer.

Would anyone of you who have the RE-600 reccommend it for DJing and music production?

I've never really seen anyone use IEM's for either, have you?

I can see something like an RE400, UERM, or Etymotic used for studio use...  DJing, I don't think so.  I personally haven't ever seen anyone use an IEM for DJing, it can be done though.

I disagree with the reviewer swimsonny here about the "bass roll off" mentioned. Both graphs and my own hearing experience show no such roll off. The RE-400 bass is very well extended, and tight, having a bit less bloom than the GR07. I'm guessing he must've had a bad fit, or something. Also, the "poor depth" comment I also disagree with. It is at least average to me.

Here's another video where Dr. Bian talks about the RE-400 and why he discontinued the RE-2x2 series. Not sure if he's exaggerating for marketing reasons, or he really means what he says: that he feels the RE-400 is superior to all of his prior creations. In any case, here it is:

 

 

"In the future, Hi-fi audio will be more affordable." I love this quote. It shows he has vision and passion for the industry, imo.

"except for the re-600 which we have deliberately inflated to allow golden eared audiophiles to torture their wallets in the manner to which they have become accustomed. Wouldn't want to rock their boat now."

 I think that was what we call "a joke"
