If you can find a Radio Shack nearby, I would get some Auvio ear tips. The come in packs of four, are cheap, and fit perfectly on my RE-400s. They also have a wide bore and seem to be a perfect match.

Yes, they do fail often. Could be either speaker. I am on my second pair that is starting to go out after ~6 months. It sucks because they sound so great and are really comfortable, nice looking IEMs. I'm going to keep these until they are completely dead and have the recabled one day. One day....

Could we petition? I wouldn't mind paying more for quality cables! It's the only concern that holds me back

Seems to be a mixed bag on build quality. I'm at a bit over a year on mine. I do keep them in the case often, but I also end up sleeping on them at least once a week. Scratches all over the housing, but they sound as great as when I got them.

oooooh thats scary! i would never do that with my pair :basshead:

 

mines is going on 2 years now (mines are i think a part of the 1st-2nd batch (i think 2nd batch because i got the hard shell carrying case and not the wind up stick) , but with infrequent use after the 1st year (too many earphones to 1 set of ears).

 

good problem to have (i'm very fortunate)

Just tried my RE-400 with Flare Audio silicon tips made for their R2 series IEMs. Though these silicons didn't work with R2PROs (dull, dark, veiled), they seem to have a good synergy with RE-400 providing that missing bit of lower frequences response.

What if the cable of my re-600 has a loose connection? Can I just solder it like any other cable? 

 

Or if I want to replace the cable fully, would any normal cable do? 

post #2964 of 2967

No differences with any other earphone cable.

Anyone knows who could change the plug to make it single ended. The plug it's failing so I would like to change it. Any company? I would change it myself but I don't know how to deal with the cables, anyone's knows the scheme, like the colors and how it attach them to the new plug?

If you'll make a photo with conductors that you have after cutting off balanced jack, we will help you to define right wiring.
