I never made that statement regarding the RE600!!! The mids are fine, these are probably one of the best tonally-balanced phones I have heard.

Why would you think I was talking about you ? I just said: "someone told me he heard". I was certainly not talking about you. I do not even know you :)

sorry to be using graphs and such but you who have heard both the RE-400 and RE-600...

do you feel that the dip from 2k-5k is very noticeable in the RE-600?

I suspect this is the only thing I am not 100% sure if I like in the RE-400, well and how deep the bass extends but that is something I suspect I could live with more or less - although you seem to say it extends very deep in the RE-600? smile.gif

though that's not to say the RE-400 isn't amazing for only $99 because it really is. just when paying $399 I'm hoping for a bit more.

 

thanks!

I've been waiting a while to hear about these, from this review they seem exactly what I am looking for in a dynamic IEM.  I think I will have to buy these when they come out.  Thanks for the review HiFlight!

Thanks for the impressions guys. Looking forward to hearing more from other users, particularly in comparison to the Re-272 and Re-400.

No, but it'd be most amusing if it were out-performed by something half its price ;-)

I'm looking forward to hearing the re-600 at the NY meet in the fall, if not sooner.

 

Comparisons to the Senn IE800 seem a little premature at this point, but hey, people want to get excited.

haha To me, the ER4S is outperformed by the RE-400 (third of the Ety's price) and the earsonic sm3 sounds like a $20 bud... so I wouldn't be surprised at all.

I haven't listened to IE800 but I honestly doubt that we can compare re-600 to them. IE800 seems to have very strong bass response. Re-600 do not have whole lot of bass. I actually found them quite bass light when I tried them. They are probably more like Grado GR10s. Good bass extension but not alot of bass slam.  They had even less bass slam than W4s for me.

Thank god. Last thing I need is another "fun" headphone.

As your post quoted Jamato8's post where he mentioned my review, and I saw no other name mentioned but mine, I assumed, wrongly it seems, that your post said that somebody said I found the RE-600 mids thick.

My apologies for any misunderstanding.

I found that it took over 20 hours for the bass to reach its potential. While the bass is very deep and well-controlled, I would not consider it to be out of proportion to the mids and highs. One will hear pretty much what is delivered by the source.
