HiFiMan RE-600 Review - Page 32

post #466 of 855

I tried re600 on my ipc, not cool. have to get hm901 as well?

post #467 of 855

I am liking these earphones very much, to my ears, one of the best non customs I have tried.

Had issues with the stems detaching from the phone itself and a replacement was provided without any hassle. Top customer support. I am now however a little concerned about their durability and being very careful handling them.

Compared with the Sennheisser IE 80, re-600 wins in detail and clarity. The Sens are darker and less detailed but still very enjoyable.

Compared with the Audeo 232, they are different, with the 232's sounding bassier and a little U-shaped, with the re-600 more faithful to the music and airier sound. It is very hard deciding which one is better since I like to be able to enjoy different sound presentations for different moods.

Compared with Stax SRM-002, the Stax has wider soundstage but less treble extension although still very natural and detailed, with good vocals reproduction and mids. The 002's are not as comfortable and mine were already replaced by Stax due to a bad connection at the Stax connector site.

I found customs more cumbersome to use (to the point it's doubtful I will ever buy another custom again) and these ones are easier to remove, and just as comfortable with the Comply comfort tips.

The stem broke? That's exactly what happened to mine.

Good thing their customer service is excellent.

no offense , but things don't just 'break' out of the blue - especially on such places of the iem

i can understand a driver going off or the sound having hicups, but to break something like this apart it usually includes the human factor

i have a re-272 for almost 3 years and nothing has broken - then again i am being careful

It broke when I twisted it into my ear like I do with every other iem, never ever seen any of my other iem's that cost a lot less than RE-600 fail. It's always the cable that breaks never the stems. This is just bad quality, and you can easily see why it breaks on the picture.

Yes they do, two RE-400 dead one of them broke in the same way Dawls RE600 did. There is a fair amount of complains about the RE400's build quality in its thread. I have had my HF5 for longer than I had my second pair of the RE400 and my SD2 for over a month but worn all the time during gym during mountain biking at work during my short commute.... Not the smallest sign of wear....

Well, it did happen, and I did not force mine in any way.

Never seen anything like this happen with any other IEM I have owned.

I really like their sound though and I want them to last, therefore I have been super extra careful with them.

My 400's too.  They still work, but both strain reliefs just slide up and down the cable.

Sound wise however, the RE-600 are lovely with a clean detailed sound that rivals the best universals out there.

Their small size also makes them ideal for sleep.

You've obviously never had any hifiman earphones!

 

What have people been saying about the RE-600 v 272 lately?

post #479 of 855

I don't know why ppl said Re-600 overprice. My friend said it lack of detail and Weston 4 is better. But when i pair it with X5 it give me a lot of detail and sound soooo good .

For having compared the two extensively on iphone 4 and balanced HM801, I'd say first of all, they sound great with both players.

Main differences between these iems are:

 

272 are more extended on each end of spectrum and neutral sounding (white sound so to speak). They sound very balanced and coherent with plenty of details and articulation but are a little "shy" in the Sub bass–Bass departments (a little EQ bass boost helps)  Most people described them as analytical. Personally, I never cared for analytical sound signatures yet, always loved the 272. Best Highs in all Hifiman iems. Great with everything, especially with electronica.

 

600 are slightly less extended on each end of spectrum and sound a little more "orangy". They have a noticeable sense of bloom and liquidity the 272 do not have. They sound bolder, more organic and musical. Bass feels bigger (272 a tad more shy but slightly deeper and more articulate). That's the type of sound signature I'm generally after, yet, they haven't made me love the 272 any less. Best "liquidity" in all Hifiman iems. Great with everything but especially with acoustic stuff.

 

In short, 272 (technical) vs 600 (musical). I love them both.
