One driver of my beloved RE-262 did stop working. I don't know if it was the cable or the driver, but I wrote to Head-Direct to ask for a repair and they kindly offered a RE-400 replacement for reduced price, as a substitute of the RE-262.
I have received the new RE-400 and I don't like them that much. The sound is harsh compared with the sweet RE-262.
I would not say that they are bad headphones, but they cannot fully satisfy my personal taste after having being playing the RE-262 for a long time.
Is there an alternative that can sound similar to the RE-262 in terms of silky smoothness (yet detailed and articulated)?
FYI: I am mainly using them with a Practical Devices XM6 or a Cowon J3
