post #16 of 70

If you are talking about beautiful vocal and smooth mid range, my vote would go for Final Audio Heaven Series

RE272, W4R, ASG2.

RE262 would be better for vocals than the 272...  RE-600 should be in that list too.

Haha but both RE262 and RE272 are rare to find nowadays. RE272 is a pretty stunning IEM.

what's your budget ?

having owned all 3 hifiman iems (262/272/600) , i loved all 3 of them - 262 is like the small brother of 600 at 1/4 of the price

272 is more analytical , but it is an outstanding iem (especially for 150$ which is its normal 'used' price)

i managed to get a used 262 for 60$ and i don't think there is a better bang-for-buck iem - hands down.

262 needs a decent amp to really shine , though - so if you don't own/plan to buy an amp , maybe it's not what you want

re600 was very good , but i wouldn't rate it more than 10-15% better than both 262/272

ATH-CK10 if you can get a hold of one.  Vocals are wonderful, detailed  and smooth.  I don't like the sparkly treble, but other than that, nice mids for vocals, and impactful and tight low end.

I am also a big female vocal lover, and have to say I didn't like RE-262 at all. Too laid-back and relaxed sound, for my taste. It sounded like all energy has been sucked out of the music, compared too Brainwavz B2 which I find much better for vocals. I wonder if IM02 would be a worthy upgrade from B2 for vocals? Or should I go with a used CK100PRO instead? Sound needs to be on the bright side, with a decent amount of sparkle and clarity, and forward (in-your-face).

Shure se series

post #26 of 70

I think the Shure SE535 really shines with vocals. They really pop out. And it's very clear.

 

But I suspect if you spend $3000 on some high end custom, there could a better IEM for vocals.

RE-262 is rated above SE 535 for vocals, and I mentioned I didn't like RE-262 because it is too laid back.

So an average heavily mid-centric signature won't do, I'm afraid.

Oh yeah, customs FTW!

From reviews it seems like RE-400 won't be any better for vocals than RE-262, and RE-600 is not that better than RE-400.

Never heard of the third model, have to check that.

Value for money i'd  go for MDR 7550 or MDR EX800ST made by Sony Music (not electronics)
