So, i think it's been about two christmas's since i went on my headphone craze on Head-fi. I bought my Beyerdynamic DT-770 after trying some Monster Turbines (Uncomfortable for me, didn't wow me either) and really enjoy my DT-770. Then i had a trip coming up and needed some nice IEM's, so i went with a very different new craze the RE0. I fell in love. Amazing clarity, detail, seperation, music sounded so different but yet the same, comfortable and i felt like i was in my own little world. Then during soccer season (i presume) i lost my prizes, and have been without them for a long long time.
So, coming back to Head-fi because my gf wanted to buy a pair of skull candy headphones (I protested; strongly.) she's going to listen to my beyer's first, then hopefully i can get her a nice pair of Grado's or something, anything but skullcandy.
Anyways. So, have the RE0's been dethroned as an amazing IEM for their price ($80) and some new budget IEM came out? Or do the RE0's still sit somewhat at the top?
Oh, and if anyone knows of a better place to buy them than the site, or wants to sell a pair i'd probably be interested. I'm located in the U.S and as long as you have some trading history or a strong (somewhat) forum history then i'm more than okay with paying first. We can do a paypal/ebay buy, gift (paypal), whatever then.
