The official claim is 15 hours.
But it seems to be much shorter from my experience...

13h+ for normal use with RE400

Can i use re600 and HM700 for rock music ?

post #138 of 342

You can use for whatever type of music you like.

Thanks cocopro!

 

My trial is 8-9 hrs with some IEM with a normal TRS plug.

I will try to test RE400B later.

Maybe my HM700 has a defective battery...

No problem=) Keep in mind that lossless could drain more battery compared to mp3.

I tried the HM700 with RE400B....

And it lasted 14+ hrs.

 

I am wondering if HM700 is not suitable for use with a normal TRS plug...

That's the reason why they sell it in combo with Re600 and Re400

ugghhh I wish they would just take out the stepped attenuator...for the flagship, I get it, SQ above all else. But for the HM802...25 steps is just not enough!

Looks like Head-direct.com has the RE700 with the RE400B for $245.  However, I'm confused with one of the images that has some adapter going to  both the headphone out and the USB port. Anybody know what this configuration does?  Then, there's an image of what looks to be a TRRS-->TRS converter cable.  Why is this if the HM700 headphone out is already balanced?  Unless that weird headphone/USB adapter is the balanced configuration, which IMO is a very sloppy implementation.

I believe it is a new adapter meant for TRRS-to-TRS conversion. While some single ended headphone has no problem plugging straight into the balanced headphone-out, other might experience high noise floor. The new adapter is to for those headphone. Another TRRS-TRS cable adapter is probably for RE400B (to use with single ended source).

I see the 802 on their website actually.

 

I'm not sure if I'll be going for the 802 at that price. It seems too close to the 901. The HM700 looks strange with the bottom looking like it doesn't really belong. I'm not too sure how good the HM700 is supposed to be however.

I'll just stick with my Android devices and USB audio myself, given the prices.

isnt that intentional? since basically the hm802 is a swapped dac version of the hm901
