Regarding the amount of bass, even if it is not a bass-heavy IEM, I personally am very picky of amount of bass - too much and I'd get headaches. Basically this is my preference: small amount of bass, flat mids, and maybe a bit elevated highs (I don't want a dark sounding IEM). Which one do you think would suit me better? Thanks for your help guys.

 

you are describing the RE-272 (my favorite iem, i have 2 pairs of it)

unfortunately it is discontinued but there is one for sale here , and the price is good - check it out.

Did you pay customs?

If anyone who jumped on the RE-600 sale want to experience how it really suppose to sound like in balance mode, I got a standalone HM-700 32GB for sale.

For 100 GBP, I won't have to. It is a good choice, certainly in my consideration.

After all this I still feel that the sound is more prominent on the right speaker. I switched between right and left ear and still feel the left speaker is quieter then the right. The sound is not center is more towards the right side of my head.
Can sinus be the problem?

 

I have the same issue but not just with RE-400. Most of my in ears seem to be shifted left (not right), so I think it might have to do with the ear canal. That being said, it's also possible that its your driver.

Thanks. I brought a budget earphone for testing and it still sounds a little louder on the right side, but not as bad as the re400. I'm starting to think the drivers are not calibrated correctly.

Just contact Hifiman and ask for a replacement if you're sure about the imbalance.
