HiFiMan RE-600 Review - Page 18

post #256 of 557

But the 'driver' in both those vehicles (in this case the engine) is radically different.  Not to mention the suspension.  Also, they look entirely different from one another so not the same shell.  Hmmm... analogy seems a tad poor.

Hmmm....Let me see...If I understand correctly, I believe that Same means the Same, but "fundamentally Same" does or does not = "exact Same"???? confused_face(1).gif

All the Yashimas have identical resonance points, the tonality are different but I suspect each is just a tweaked version of another.

Anyways, Rin got his hands on these wink.gif

And yes, this engineer, he surely knows his stuff, don't believe if you don't want.

 

I talked to an audio engineer about it...  Showed him the graphs, he said there's a high chance that they are indeed different drivers.  He, like your engineer wishes to remain anonymous, I'll respect this decision of his.  He also says that he can't know for sure unless he gets the chance to actually crack open both and look at them... 

 

And yes, this engineer, he surely knows his stuff; don't believe (it) if you don't want (to).

LOL I was going to post something similar, but you beat me to the punch. I must say, though, that even if both diaphragm looks identical that doesn't mean that they are. One's eyes may not be able to pick subtle differences, such as the thickness of an 8mm diaphragm.

Lol you guys wish it were like that

My audio engineer, who also insists on being anonymous, too says stop this nonsensical arguments.

I think we may have the same friend!

 

anyone know when these will be up for sale on head-direct.com?

can't wait until more people have tried them so there's some actual discussion... redface.gif

Personally, I think the "discussion" in regards to the make of the drivers is now over-shadowing the more important issue to discuss...

Shouldn't we be more concerned about how the RE-600 sounds and if the improvement (if there's any) over the RE-400 is worth the price difference?

Thanks for a great review!

So let me get this straight: You haven't heard them. Your engineer hasn't heard them. Your engineer sees measurements and concludes they're the same drivers. Just to get this clear in my head, let's go over a couple of points again... You haven't heard them. Your engineer hasn't heard them...

I agree with d marc0, including putting "discussion" in quotes, as this Inks' points aren't a discussion, as I see it, but unfounded, toothless attempts to discredit. Inks, this is the second thread you've brought this nonsense into, and the responses you're getting here are, understandably, the same.

 

I've heard them. I have a the RE-400 here. I have an RE-600 prototype here. They don't sound the same. Others who've heard them say they don't sound the same.

 

I also agree with d marc0 about getting this thread back on topic.

Third, actually. (Maybe even a fourth that I've missed?) Should've seen his little impetuous verbal spewing in the 4.ai thread, where he flat-out called either the 4.ai or  Heir Audio a scam. This guy...

I liked the re-600 in the short time I had to listen to them.

I would recommend them for listening to music.

If one wanted to just sit around making charts with them, I'm not sure...

My RE-600s have arrived, but i will hold back impressions until i receive my HM-901 with balanced card. Happy listening everyone! beerchug.gif

Jude (or Curra), any chance you guys would consider setting up a new sub-forum called "Bashing/Critiques/Scams/Overrated/Overpriced/Overhyped Products"?  It seems there is a huge demand for it!    I came across many similarly toned responses from certain individuals based on same old "scientific"/"theoretical" arguments way too often on threads where actual users/owners are grieved under their false pretense of "freedom to state his/her opinion".  They just repeat and repeat the same tired subjective sense of value and the same subjective assessment criteria which they believe is the one and only logical/acceptable/scientific/smart/clever/superior view.... Personally I blocked these habitual grievers but things are something getting kind of ridiculous even just seeing other's responses to these grievers.   Just my 0.02......

 

For the Re600, from my experience, there is an significant difference in its sound compared to the Re400.  How much it is worth is to each our own.  Personally, I think it is worth MORE than the difference between them.  On classical or live acoustic recordings, the ONLY IEM in my current collection that can give me a similar level of satisfaction is the $1,495 Tralucent 1plus2.   And I also like the Re600 for studio recorded/produced music over other IEM around it's price range such as UM3X, SE535, XBA4/40, ER4S, Fitear F111.
