Hifiman IEM's: RE-400 and RE-600 - Page 6

post #76 of 2260

Yep, definitely on the smaller side. Not tiny like some of the little Jays or UE700, but still relatively compact.

I actually would say they were tiny, I haven't used the Jays or UE700, the smallest IEMs I own are the Nocs NS800, 200 mm long from end of shell to end of tip and an 8mm diameter barrel.  The RE400 are 202 mm from shell end to tip end and 100 mm diameter at it's widest point (7 mm at its narrowest).

 

I do want to update with sound impressions, they've gone through about 24 hours of burn in so far with about 4 hours of total use.  I have to say I'm impressed with them so far, they are definitely pushing on the analytical side of things.  Low-to-mid-bass focus, great texturing, but lacking presence down low.  Midrange is highly detailed with great vocal dynamics (something I remember the RE0 lacking) while the highs are extremely detailed (analytical to a point) with high extension.  It's an IEM, that like many of HiFiMan's offerings, tries their best to reach neutral response, it does a decent job of it as well.  The IEMs do lack a warmth to them though :(  Highs are more strident than the RE0 (which I felt was an extremely perfect balance with hybrid tips).  

 

*Note, I'm still using the single-flange tip that came with it.  The dual flanges boost the lows, but also constrict the highs for me.  I'm still playing with tips though, so things may change.

these are the RE-400 right?

hmm at being slightly strident. I am curious about how the RE-600 perform vs something like the Ety ER4, haven't actually heard them but they are on my list and I am afraid of sibilance/harshness with them if the RE-400 might be a bit so.

The re-600 and the ety er4 have a quite different sound signature imo.

What if a company made an orthodynamic IEM driver? O.O

VSONIC is supposedly already working on that...

These are the RE400. I don't think anyone has the RE600 yet.

There are delays in the making of the 600 I have been informed.
post #85 of 2260

how would the re-400 hold against the re-272 ? sure they have a 150$ price difference but god forbid , something happens to my 272 i should have alternative options

 

i have the 272 for more than 1 year , it is the best iem i have heard so far (re-zero/252/262 , eq-5 being the other 4) and i hope the re-600 doesnt turn out to be the super iem it's rumoured to be

 

my wallet is crying

I actually wouldn't know this as I haven't heard the RE-272 :(

I don't think there is much info on them.  Some have said they are slated to release after CES 2013.  I'd wait until then and see.

Oh i was only told that neither are released yet but they have samples of the 400 (i have one on the way) but nothing yet of the 600 as they are 'slightly delayed'. Does not sound like anything to worry about though!
