How about to vsonic GR07 which i've been eyeing for a while.
Also how's the fit for small ears?
noktekniq I don't have the RE262 but I do have the RE272. The 272 in probably more neutral and it is much smoother with less treble and definitely far less bass. Not that the DN1000 is overly bassy, I find it's bass pleasingly boosted, and well behaved. The 272 is more even but the DN1000 is much more fun. Someone else said it best when they said that rather than taking a neutral phone and making it more fun, they took a fun IEM and added quality. My 272's have better cables, but other than that I consider them about equal in build quality and accessories. My DN1000's get more playtime than the 272's now.
As far as comfort, I have no issues, however I also have large ear canals. Hope this was of some help for you.
