My RE-0s broke yesterday. I think it's just the 3.5mm jack that's at fault so I'm going to try swapping it off for another, and failing that re-cabling. They've served me well and i love their sound, but I can't see me using them for my daily commute in future for fear they'll die a proper death.
In the meantime, I'm looking at the RE-400s as a potential replacement as they seem mostly like for like. Is there anything else worth me considering in the same sort of price range (though theoretically up to £200/$300)?
I like the relative neutrality of the RE-0 and the lack of bass emphasis. It's not that I hate base, but for years I've had cheap IEMs and earbuds which have emphasized it far too much. Right now I'm using my old backup shure SE110s and they sound horribly muddy.
They'll be used mostly with an iphone 5 unamped as I hate using the adaptor and stuff to get my fiio e7 working with it, though not ruling out the possibility of using an amp in the future.
I went through the summer gift guide list of IEMs but none stuck out in my ideal budget, those that did seem to be notably more expensive in £ than $.
