    "Clinical" IEM recommendation

    (Dang, I haven't hung out here in a while and it looks like the IEM comparison threads are outdated.) My Hifiman RE-600s recently bit the dust so I guess it's time for me to move on. I am looking for a new set and the shorthand term people use for the kind I like is "clinical." I like accuracy...

    Hifiman IEM quality

    Well, I have been a Hifiman loyalist for close to ten years but I think I am done. My RE-252s were great, my favorite IEMs, and lasted 6 years. Two years ago they broke and I replaced them with RE-600s. Well, I have had to get warranty replacements for the RE-600s twice due to cabling issues and...

    Hifiman RE-252 replacement

    Well, 6 years later, the right channel suddenly up and died. I put them away, very loosely coiling them up like I always do, and when I took them out, the right was dead. No amount of cable fiddling could get signal from the right side again. A real shame, as I loved these earphones. Oh well.  ...

    WTB: active monitors, smallish

    HiFiMan RE252 and/or Final Audio FI-BA-A1

    Hello all --   Looking to buy HiFiMan RE252s and/or Final Audio FI-BA-A1s. I live in the Chicago area and would love local pickup, but I realize beggars can't be choosers. Drop a PM if you're interested. Thanks!   Micah

    Out of the loop, happy to be back (after some recommendations, hopefully)

    Hi fellas -- Thanks very much for the tips and welcome back. I will see if I can find RE252s and Final Sound As either here or at a local dealer in Chicago this weekend before I order in from a shop. I'll report back with my findings when I have them in hand. Micah

    Out of the loop, happy to be back (after some recommendations, hopefully)

    Hey all --   I have been out of the loop here for several years as I went back to college and new audio gear was definitely not in the budget...but now that I've graduated and found a good job, hey, let the insanity begin!   I had a pair of ER-4p's for a few years in the early 2000s...
