The Dx50 sounds great out of most of my cans just not the re400 so you should be right. I'm really digging the UE900s out of them at the moment and to think I was going to give them away

For re400 owners.. could you tell me what accessories came with your re400? Looking to do a trade, thought I had all the tips and whatever but now I'm not sure. Can't remember if it came with a carrying case either lol.

Mine came with a clam shell zip case, but a lot didn't.

Not much as I can remember. Just a few tips.

 

By the way, I have settled on the Sony hybrid silicon tips with foam under the flap to give me the bass I require from the RE-400. Perfect!

May I know what is the best eartip for re-400? Been using the stock transparent silicon tip from Head-direct, although its the best among those that comes with the IEM, I would like to try something new that hopefully it will enhance the sound quality of re-400/

 

Thanks in advance.

You can make your own. Cheaper and better sounding.

Custom tips sound so good. Sorry I just pulled them out of my ears. They're a bit deformed.

i dunno i have the sony hybrids too i hate to bash but they were really hyped up and i bought a pair of those cheap sony i think exp-10 (those black 10$ ones that come with it) i loved it at first and opt to buy another set of those iems for a second set of eartips. 

 

it definitely boosted the mid-bass some subbass (great for the re400s, which at first i thought lacked bass)as well and the lower treble, but i thought it made killed the treble extension. it makes it roll off quicker. and thats the second thing i love about the re400s 

1) the fantastic clear mids wow

2) the delicate treble that extends quite far

3) the bass was a bit low in quantity but very high quality

 

in the end i tried the sony hybrids in a number of different iems ( gr07, made the lower treble too siblant but the bass boost was nice again) and the turbines (made the mids a bit too recessed imo and plus the treble extension on the turbines was okay at best and this reduced that) and after a couple of months. their sitting in my drawer and not used in any iems

 

they seal really well, the material they used on the outside is fantastic especially after some human ear wax/oil... (gross i know but they seal better after some of that)

Hello all,
I just picked up a pair of these IEMs after my Westone 3s finally crapped out. I listened to them briefly out of the box. My first reaction was was not great I thought the bottom end was anemic (coming from Westone 3s), and the overall sound was very 1 dimensional and very bright. So I burned them in for 40 hours. Wow what a difference! Like a flower that blumed! Wide stage nice depth and layiering, bass tightened up. I am amazed how good these sound for only $100.00!


Regards
Jeff

its stated here before but i figured i might as well say it again, if you want some more low end use some narrow apeture tips, how narrow depends on how warm u want it. i use them iwth the baby blue gr07 tips ML  (more neutral to me with a hint of warmth) if you want warmer (more midbass and mids) go with sony hybrids

 

on one extreme i tested them with my klipsch s4i tips (they shouldn't fit but i stretched them to make it fit! lol anyway it was far too overblow at that point, made the treble siblant and the bass overly bassy, upsetting the entire balence. the comfort was nice cause of the oval ear tips but going that narrow took things too far for me. it made the entire sound stage very congested and indistinct
