Yes it does come with a case now. I find it pretty large (maybe too large) and sturdy, but a bit hard to open and close. Maybe somebody else can post a pic of it, since I don't have a camera right now.

I posted a pic a few weeks back, it comes with a case if you order directly from head-direct.com which is hifimans own store. Great service too, no offense to headamp who also does a great job, I've ordered from both.

Okay cool! Thanks for posting that.  I think I saw that case posted elsewhere but thought it was someone showing what they were using becasue the RE-400 didn't come with a case! Haha! I just learned that they do now last night by reading the big IEM review thread. I ordered mine through HeadDirect, so I should be getting the case I would think...

If you don't get one, ask for one.     That's what I did, and I got mine mailed to me the next day.

No they don't. the nozzle is wider than the Shure earphones' nozzles.

Sorry waynes world..lol. Still, I hold the CKS1000 and FXZ100 in high regard. I'm not trying to get rid of those. And you see I think of the H-200 more as a BA than dynamic, so it's not int he dynamics list, but H-200 and RE-400 are pretty much equal in my enjoyment of both universal earphones.

Yeah, that's what it looked like, but hard to tell from pictures.  I really like the black foamie type from Shure that you can wash and use again, not a big fan of the rubber/polypro ones.  Maybe I will check out the Radio Shack ones I've been reading about.

Love the sound from these.  Detest the cable.

Just read this now. Why do get the feeling that your apology is not entirely sincere lol!

 

Anyway, it's nice to see that I don't have to run out and buy the RE400's to replace my H200's!

 

And as far as the cks1000's are concerned, I don't know man... they are still blowing me away, and I find it hard to believe the RE400's could be rated higher. So maybe I do need to run out and buy the RE400's after all lol.

Finally got mine! Listening to them right now as I type this, straight off my 120gb iPod Classic, which is what they will mostly be used with and so far so good! Checking out Daft Punk's Random Access Memories and enjoying what i am hearing, I wanted something a little more exciting than my Shure SE310 and I like the sound in comparison, a little bit more bass and a more lively sound while still staying pretty neutral overall.  I stopped by a few Target stores and Radio Shack to get some Comply tips on my way home and I did find some that would fit at the Shack but they are the Sport ones(all I could find), not what i wanted really, I want to try the Isolation ones.  I'll order them online. I hate the rubber ones that the Waterline come with, won't even try them.....  The case that came with the phones was nicer than I anticipated! My first non-Shure IEM's and I think they were a bargain at $99! Retail on my SE310 were like $300 a few years ago...I think i paid $200 something for them. etysmile.gif

If you're going to be going with the Comply's, make sure you get the TS series for it affects the sound sig the least of any of them.   Actually, almost no change at all.

I saw your recomendation a while back while I was reading all these posts in anticipation of getting mine.  Not so sure i am crazy about the shape.  As I said these are my fiirst non-Shure IEM's and it's kind of weird to me not to have any "body" to the headphone and have a little tiny thing all the way in my ear, so I want to try the bigger tips that I can insert deeper but still not have the headphone so far into my ear canal.  The S400 I got are pretty good so far, but it's early days...Thanks for the advice I may try them out, I wish they had a sampler pack that was not just different sizes but the different designs.

Well buddy, I'm not planning on selling my H200 or CKS1000 anytime soon (if at all), but yes, fortunately or unfortunately the RE400 is that good. I have no doubt you would dig it.
