    "Great, But Not For Everyone"
    I used these everyday for almost a year, until I lost them. They're the best IEMs I've heard, but they are far from perfect. The most glaring issues are the fit, and the lack of bass. Once fitted properly, and using the right tips, isolation is... View Full Review

    "Excellent sounding, if imperfect flagship."
    [MEDIA] A few years ago I remember that the big deal about HiFiMan IEMs was their low price. It was hard to argue with good sound for $99, so it is something of a surprise to end up reviewing the gold-plated HiFiMan RE2000 flagship. While... View Full Review

    "Unrealized Potential with Some Flaws"
    GermanMAESTRO - just rolls of your tongue. Little is said about the company around Head-Fi and I imagine most of their customers are companies too. Still, Massdrop had the GMP 450 Pro for $175 and I wanted a pair of good-sounding closed cans, so... View Full Review

    "Avoid These"
    As far as I can tell, the JiES X6 is an IEM that is sold to other companies that then brand and sell them rather than sold directly to consumers. I can only find JiES on lightinthebox for $8.99; I bought them from a company named Vivreal on... View Full Review
