The treble extension on re272 is really well done. Really smooth. A near comparison from memory is that it extends as linearly as the TF10 or even best it. re272 is leaning towards the brighter side of things. I suppose it might be better than the DBA02 though I've not heard them yet.

Great, all plastic but well made and finished, cable is think but quite flexible.

Not that anyone else is gonna want to try this but, you can't really wear them cable down.

I believe they actually sound similar to my AD700X but a little warmer and less open

Btw, just wondering does any of the new ATH-IM models sound similar/closest to the CK100's (not the PRO's)? I've had them for quite a while now and I really enjoy them, but from what I understand they have one of the most unique sound signatures that are not founded in other iem's, and they have been discontinued.

I have the IM50, the build quality is not bad, cable connections is sturdy and all, strain relief seems good to, standard Audio Technica quality. But don't know whether is it bad luck or what the set I received had driver imbalance, and I had to wait 2 months for stocks due to high demand...

I disagree, the cable connectors to the IEM is clunky in my opinion. It just does not have that secure feeling since it still can move around (although to a limited degree).

Hmm. Mine is very tight and it does not move around at all. To remove the cable requires much effort. IM50 here:.

I had IM02 and now IM03 - very secure cable connection, among the best I have seen. If yours is loose, you probably got a defective unit.

Same here. Cable connectors are  very tight and need too much effort to remove the cable.

Probably need to clear this up, when the connector is plugged in yes it is tight and needs considerable force to plug it out.

Yet at the plugged in state, the cable connectors seems loose as in there are still room for movement thus why I called it a little bit wonky.

Nope, at the plugged in state mine (IM70) is still very secure and does not move around.

My IM02s are like that too, although I hadn't noticed it until I checked just now.

My experience with the IM02 has made me decide to re-buy a set of ER-4S. I sold them ages ago because I couldn't deal with the deep insertion but I want to try these new glider tips. Also they're such a reference point for me I want to own a pair so I can come back to them from time to time so see how my latest phones measure up. So once I get them I will post some more detailed comparisons with the IM02.
