very true - i have bought re-zero/252/262/272/400 , and all of them were great and fantastic bang-for-buck, with the exception of 400 which i found completely mediocre and traded it for a 262 (then again i compared the re400 to 262/272 , which isn't a fair comparison as these 2 iems are fantastic , especially if you get them at a discount price through the sales forums)

 

i think so many people here have not tried the HM iems - they are missing a lot.

Hehe so true. So far I have gone through - 2x HE-6, HE-5LE, HE-500, RE-600, and RE-400. I have kept all of them except for the 5LE and RE-400.

I'm not sure if you were asking him directly.  Many people have done this comparison already, I think everyone who has an RE-400 has a 600 as well, or at least the majority do XD 

 

The 600 and 400 are very similar, which is why the 600 got a lot of fire for being 4x the cost.  What the 600 offers is a slightly lusher midrange that still offers the detailing and clarity of the 400 while the low-end is more linear with better extension, in a way or two, it's a little more accurate.  The treble does take a trade off though.  The 600 offers a more linear treble that is less fatiguing and edgy while maintaining good detailing and separation.  However, it takes some quantity and presence with it in contrast to the RE-400.

This sums it up pretty well. If you're after a warm, clear and 3D sound signature then look no further than the RE-600. I think the RE-400 is a loss leader for HifiMan to get his name and products more mainstream.

Except the lush mid on Re600, in my opinion the Re600 is far better than Re400. I dont know how to describe it, Re400 give u something like a flat paper but Re600 make everything in that paper become 3d, the instrument, the voice u can feel it around u more lively

+1. but somtimes the re400 sounds more airy than the re600. pin Point Imaging goes for the latter, but in terms of spaciousness the re400 wins in my books.

I love their gear, I have 252,262, 272, RE400......But darn those crappy cables......I don't understand how a company like this that consistently puts out great quality iem's can so consistently put out poor quality cables?

That is my only gripe...Once they finally fix this then.....Well the sky's the limit. Sorry for the rant...

Well the fact you could not get a decent fit is why you couldn't enjoy these. I found the supplied tips were also not to my liking, then I tried the L Sony hybrids which opened up the sound pallet for me.

I find the Re400's great value.

This is the impression I got between the two...each has it's own merits IMO.

While I've not heard the SRH1840 yet, the HE-500 comes highly recommended from me for anyone :D The price is better than ever before at the moment too.  Also keep an eye on the upcoming models and impressions/comparisons.

well done , nice to see you guys get some love - i have 262/272 and imo you are the best 'bang-for-buck' company around.

you should bring 262/272 back in production  though , 400 is too mediocre compared to these 2 beauties

 

keep up the good work !!!!   :beerchug:
