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...
Absolutely right! I had to get my 262's replaced 2x within the warrantee period due to poor cables. While their customer service is excellent, as I mentioned in another thread, their quality control is terrible. Four hundred dollars for an IEM without detachable cables is inexcusable! They need to make detachable cables or perhaps a Headfi member who has "cable talents" can offer recabling services for them as apparently the usual recabling companies won't.
I think we should hold HiFiMan accountable for its cables and build quality like Digitalfreak has done with "boutique players." Digitalfreaks excellent thread, http://www.head-fi.org/t/682750/the-sad-state-of-the-so-called-audiophile-dap-market, points the finger at "the high prices we've paid for players with shoddy firmware that only makes us want to smash the player against the nearest wall". TeamHiFiMan should acknowledge this problem and address it!
