i tried some other tips and found jvc spiral dot tips works perfectly with these iems, remain the magical mid, elevate bass and smooth out treble :) you may want to try those tips :)

I am so glad I bought these. At first, the mids where kinda overwhelming for me.It is for sure a very mid-forward/centric signature.

The initial pricing of 400€.. not sure If I had bought them, since they are technically inferior to Balanced Armatures( detail, frequency extension, isolation). But the Re-600 is ahead in soundstage - grand and coherent. The timbre is amazing as well, everything is well put together. A rather sophisticated tuning which is highly versatile. If you aren't too focused on the technical ability of your gear compared to 300-400€ Balanced Armatures, the IEM Re-600 could be one of your most appreciated companions =) 

But at 200€ price point, there is no competition right now if you happen to like midcentric, high class tuning =)

hmm i wouldnt say the were inferior, well except in isolation if you treat less as being a negative.

 

give them a bash with a lighter, crisper amp and youll start to notice the details flowing forth. the detail is in there, its just the gentle warmth can casually obscure it where BA's are often much more upfront with it.

I received some RE-600s a week ago and put about 100 hours of musical burn-in time with them, having lived with RE-262 the last couple years.

 

What I am hearing is a slight hardness in the upper mids and more neutral presentation (as opposed to warm or cool), and negatively impacts my enjoyment of the music. Perhaps I am too used to the liquidity and mid-range warmth of the RE-262?

 

Yes, they are very spacious and great soundstage, better even than the RE-262 perhaps because the highs are not quite as rolled off as the RE-262. They handle complex music well and have good texture and depth in the bass.

 

...But those slightly hard upper mids. And without the warmth, I have trouble relating to the reviews that call the mids "lush". Do I need to put some more burn-in hours on them or is this their final character?
