    Where did he state that he had a pair?  Does anyone?  Just started taking orders Jan 15!
     
    Headfi is losing credibility lately, multiple accounts, replying to themselves, impressions on iem's they don't own?

    RE-400 review samples have been sent to some users/reviewers a couple of weeks ago... [​IMG]

    I have had it for over a week. Look on the last few pages, I have posted a first look video, a page to my blog about them and the comparison with the 262 which is merely a signature comparison and not to technical.

    Clieos had both the RE262 and RE-400, I cancelled my RE-400 based on his comparision, rather than by someones memory six months back!

    Does it matter when I heard it, I know what it sounds like.

    262 =mid centric = mids are the focus

    400 = neutral = no real focus

    Didn't say one is better etc, not sure if you read my comparison and I never said to reorder the 400 I just offered a different opinion as it sounds like you was informs that the 400 is a mid centric.

    I was only trying to help :D

    Actually, it does matter when you heard it.  Memories tend to skew with time.  As time expands out, certain aspects begin to stand out more than others.  Some things are forgotten, some are stressed more than they need to be.  As time goes on, any comparison with that given memory becomes skewed.  So it does matter.  A direct comparison is done within seconds, or even minutes from each other (at most) as opposed to months back.  Time skews a memory, so the shorter the time, the better, and more accurate the result.  
     
    That said, you may be able to give signature differences through a memory, but the more intricate areas and properties of a headphone can also become skewed with memory.

    I wrote notes by the way..... Of what I was hearing, helps jog my memory. :)

    Thanks and I pretty much outlined that in the comparison, why I didn't get into the finer point and the fact I said it was more to ride people over to someone else done it.

    Anyway lets chill guys, I hopefully will get this review started soon so I will keep you posted. Also it sounds fantastic with my nearly quoted mycroft portdac 1866 :D

    Glad I cancelled the 400, if they are neutral with no real focus, I already have the RE272. and they are neutral, so I don't think the 400 would better the 272.  I was looking for somthing more......maybe the 600 in due time.  There are plenty of good dynamic iems outh there right now that would give the 400l plenty of competiton at that price....not looking for another neutral iem!  Now that helped save me the troulble of trying and returning the 400, as I purchased the 262 and returned them within the 30days!
     
    Wasn't saying the 400 were stated as being mid centric....but he compared the sound to the RE262 more than any other Hifiman iem. but the 400 more balanced than the 262!

    That increases accuracy, but time still becomes a damaging factor.  There are many IEMs that I no longer own.  I have my reviews and notes on them, but couldn't do any valid comparison despite having those two things (yet still knowing a general signature).

    This will be my first hifiman IEM, the only product I've tried of theirs is the HE6... I will compare the RE-400 to other IEM's i have had if I think its a worthy comparison

    Are the new RE400 closer to the 252?.....anyone?  Now that was a nice neutral IEM but bad casing. IS this the one in a better casing?
     
  15. Swimsonny
    The casing is very ergonomic. Nice over the ear fit. Can get a deep insert if needed as well.
