What tool did you use to make a hole?  I'm thinking of purchasing a biopsy punch tool but not sure about the hole diameter.

I just poked a hole and stretched a bit with one of those small screwdrivers that you'd use to fix watches

 hes probably asking because that hole picture looks very clean

 

and it does i doesn't look like you stretched anything, if i would've guessed it would've been a hole puncher or something

 

cheers

When you stretch the plug over the nozzle the result is what you get in my pic

OK traded for a almost brand new pair of re400 's and all I can say is... Wow.. This is what I've been looking for for a very long time.. Spent hundreds and hundreds on higher priced iems and as they are all nice sounding of course.. These almost beet every single pair in clarity and detail.. I'm a detail junkie and these just gave me just what I've always been looking for.. And I can't believe they are only around 100 bucks.. Come on are all these other so called high end company's.. The Westones.. The shures.. And so on.. Paying attention to hifiman.?? Well they better.. :-P. Way to hifiman.. I'm very new to this company but I sure know where my hard earned dollars will be going.. Thanks :-). Very happy..

Hi

I'm pretty sure you own the Senn IE80 too, how do these compare with RE-400. I'm about to pull the trigger on these or maybe the GR07 mk2.

I like the IE80 but just cannot seem to love them and cannot justify the cost for the level of performance they offer.

I too love detail and clarity. I also prefer a clean studio type sound with nothing masked or overdone. Can you recommend me one over the other? (RE-400/GR07mk2)

My main genre is electronic, some 80's, Michael Jackson, soundtrack (Hans Zimmer) etc

Thanks

Hi e30 pilot.. Well since you like Micheal Jackson and stuff like that I'm not to sure that the re400 would be for you.. Maybe? They are pretty cheap so if you don't like them it's really not a big loss like the ie80's would be.. If you like detail and a neutral sounding iem then the re400 is really for you.. I think for the price you can't beat them.. The ie80 will sound slow and bloated compared to the re400.. Very tight fast bass.. Just not a bass lovers iem.. With the ie80 I starting using the tape mod and now I find it has more detail and makes the bass more tight and accurate imo.. You may not like that.. I have never tried the gr07 so I really can't comment on it.. But if you like detail then Ya for the price of the re400 they are great.. Just let your brain get use to the sound and you'll love them I think.. They are just not a bass heavy iem like the senns are.. I hope this helps you.. And your rite I think the ie80's are way over priced.. :-)

Thanks,

That really helps!

When I was into hifi a few years ago I had Cyrus seperates and Mission 751 speakers and really loved that sound. It was detailed, with a fast tight bass (not boomy or bloated) and it was on the bright side (metal dome tweaters) so very revealing. It seems the RE-400 would be similar to this.

I think I will keep the IE80 as I do really like them with certain albums, I think I just need to satisfy the urge for a neutral and detailed sound sig that I was used to back in the day.

then yes I think you will love them.. I think they could easily sell for twice as much as they are.. Great phone.. I'm glad I could help.. :-)
