    NE-7M vs RE0 vs R02ProII

    I must say I'm being overwhelmed by the universal support for the RE0. Guess I have narrowed down my choices to exactly one. You guys are immensely helpful Is it possible to get the Soundmagic foam tips separately? Anywhere online?

    NE-7M vs RE0 vs R02ProII

    ^ Thanks for the wonderfully detailed post, sir! Hmm, even I'm wondering if it is the Etymotic sound signature that I'm really looking for in my headphones. I must say that the (inherent?) lack of bass was really off-putting to me since I first heard of them, but rest assured I'm quite sure...

    NE-7M vs RE0 vs R02ProII

    Got it. So I'm throwing the VSonics out of the equation. So from what I can make out right now, NE-7 = RE2 < RE0. Thing is, I can't seem to nail whether I really want to pony up for the RE0 over the other two. What signifies "better"? Is it worth paying twice the amount for? Would I really...

    Recently lost my bent-plug Vibe Duo (first pair of IEMs) and torn choosing between these three as my next. NuForce NE-7M - US$60 shipped HeadDirect RE0 - US$110 shipped VSonic R02ProII (ebay) - US$ 42 (!) shipped. I honestly do not know what to make of the authenticity of these, but...
