- Do they need an amp to sound good?
I have an opportunity to buy them second hand good as new for nearly half of the p new price, so I'm wondering...
well they are nothing like the db02, acoustically they are in the opposite direction. they are warm and rich with robust bass. while fun they may not have the excitable treble you want. na they dont need an amp

can you tell how much better 600 is compared to 262/272 ?
I am a huge HFM fanboy (having owned re-zero/252/262/272/400) ,i have the 272 for 2 years now and i just got again a 262 and amped , this thing sounds awesome
so i am beginning to think that maybe a 600 should be added to my sonic arsenal sometime soon
thing is , i was holding back because when i had the 262 back in 2010 didn't like its rolled-off highs , but now it sounds marvelous and almsot as good as the 272
so the question is - is the 600 worth so much money if i already have a 262 and a 272 ?
i may be on the lookout for a cheaper FS 600
thanx man , keep on writing such great reviews.
thank you. as for better than the 262/272 well thats not soemthing im sure id really outright say. they are spectacularly good at what they do but so where the 262 and 272. the 600 is about boing a much full or osunding IEM with more heafty bass in particular. tbh if you say you didnt love the highs on the 262 then you will probably find similar with the 600. i mean the dreble is superbly detailed but its really not upfront and in your foce like the 272.
as for is it worth it if you have those two, well not really. i mean the 600 is much more expensive and while its one of the very best universals out there its not like the other wernt also. if its that you want a 262ish nature with more robust bass then sure go for it, just dont expect that youll get some whole new level of sound. its a testiment to jus thow good the 262 and 272 were. however, for the moeny i cant see you getting an IEM thats actually "better" than the 600.
