These are very tiny and do not insert deeply into the ear canal as do such types as the Etys. Although none of the included tips fit my ears, the tips from an old set of Head-Direct phones fit just fine and achieve a really good seal without extending into my ear canals. Because of this, they are quite comfortable and due to the very light weight, they "disappear" almost instantly leaving only the music.

I have contacted Fang and asked him for the specifications and when the RE-600 will be released for sale.
He usually is prompt with his replies and I will post the info as soon as I receive it.

I tried re-600 for 5 minutes at a recent conference. Build quality was excellent. They sounded very clear with excelent mid and treble response. However bass response was kind of weak for me in terms of quantity (weaker than W4). Soundstage was not that impressive as well comparing to my W4's. It was a short listen so take my words with a grain of salt.

Less bass than W4 is a good thing smily_headphones1.gif

depends: less midbass = yeah, less sub bass = meh

Yeah I agree but the bass won't roll off so subbass should be fine, almost certain of this

RE600 better then IE800?

That's what some people say Fang have  said..smile.gif

thats not hard to challenge. even the superlux hd381F sounds better than that sennheiser production fault.

Nice, informative review, HiFlight.. I liked the RE-400 a lot.. so I'm looking forward to hearing these.. hopefully sooner than later.

Re-600 had less midbass. W4 does not have whole lot of subbass anyway.

I agree that the RE-600 has less midbass than my 4R, but IMO, the 4R midbass was coloration rather than a true rendition. Deep bass of the RE-600 was clearly greater than that of the 4R when I used my bass reference files and sinesweeps. If there is deep bass present, the RE-600 will render it quite accurately with the appropriate rumble. For example, I could clearly tell the difference between a bass drum and a tympani with the RE-600. Not so easy to do with the 4R.

Of course my preferences are not necessarily what others will like. Some prefer darker overall sound, some prefer analytic sound, some even prefer a quite colored sound. I guess that is why not all phones sound alike. I think many times a product is introduced that sounds like what the manufacturer thinks will sell! I suppose it is also why Players have EQ available.

So these pretty much suit you more than any of your other IEM's (including customs?) you've had?
Just curious to what customs/universals you've had/listened to?

post #43 of 557

+1 on this , we 'd like your take regarding other iems (especially universals) you used in the past

Really interested to listen to some opinions on RE272 vs RE600 because the descriptions of both are very similar.

post #45 of 557

Hummm... I haven't hear either of them yet but my Re-272 ($249) knocked out my Senn IE80 ($449) in the first round. No comparison, BAM! †
