Having said that, I did run into a problem with with these phones: after six months, the left side stopped working. I'm not sure how prevalent this is, but an alarming number of other buyers here have had the problem, and a quick internet search shows even more. The product could still be worth it, but not from this seller: DBRoth, in an effort to keep their prices so low, will only replace a product within 7 days. HeadDirect's warranty does not extend to items bought through this seller. The price is the *exact* same on HeadDirect's site, so if you want to purchase these then I advise you to go through there instead.
The sound quality IS excellent, and had I found somebody willing to fix these I would still be able to recommend them, at least to those who like more a more analytical sound. However, there is no reason to buy them through this seller- they are no cheaper than the MSRP and price at HeadDirect's website, and are not covered by any warranty. Since there appears to be a very real possibility that these can fail, you should NOT buy them without the warranty.
I've already written a great deal on the RE0s but I don't consider any of it a formal review in the traditional sense. If you've read my previous writing about the RE0s, you should know that I am positively enamored by them. In the few weeks since I received them, they have quickly become my preferred listening devices when I sit down with my laptop or iPod and listen to music. After putting them through their paces for 200+ hours and listening to the sound signature evolve and mature in that time, I finally feel that I'm ready to give the RE0s the review they deserve. So, without further ado, read on for my full review of the HiFiMan RE0 in ear monitors.
Driver: 9mm dynamic driver
Frequency Response: 15Hz - 22KHz
Impedance: 64 '
Cable Length: 1.28m/4.2ft
Packaging and Accessories
The RE0s come packaged in a small, clear plastic clamshell box. The design is unobtrusive and eye catching, showing off the IEMs flanked by the three pairs of silicone single flange tips. Included accessories range from the aforementioned three pairs of single flange silicone tips, two pairs of small and large bi-flanges, five pairs of replacement filters and a shirt clip. Overall, this is a decent accessory package but I would've been happier if a soft or hard carrying case had been included with the package. I guess you could argue that the case the RE0s came in could be used to carry them around in a pinch but it's just slightly too big and bulky to fit very comfortably in a pocket.
Design and Build Quality
Right off the bat, the similarity to the V-Moda Vibes is immediately apparent.Read more ›
With praise comes some criticism, though. The cable has awful microphonics. Any little movement of your head results in very distinct mid frequency noise. I walk about a mile to and from work every day, and am considering buying another pair of IEM's for this purpose because the RE0 microphonics are really that bad. I find wearing them over the ear awkward because of how thin the cable is and how there is really no strong kink to take hold around your ear. Over the ear is even worse if you wear glasses (as I do most of the time, sunglasses or eyeglasses).Read more ›
