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 decided I wanted to get in-ear monitors, because I like being able to take them places without looking uncouth. I searched far and wide for information on sub-$100 sets, and these kept coming up in many threads of conversation, as well as a few other brands(I can't remember most of the phones' names besides the Hippo VBs, but the brands were Klipsch, Shure, and Sennheiser.) Eventually, I narrowed it down to either these or the Klipsch Image S4is, which, I was told, had more bass, as well as a microphone, which meant I could use it on the phone, as well as try to make it work on XBox Live as well. After much consideration, I decided to purchase these, figuring that if I wasn't satisfied with the bass on these, I could try equalizing it up, or even getting a FiiO E5 amp. It helped the RE0s' case quite a bit that people said that the S4is had a cheap-feeling, thin cable, since I've had headphones which would simply stop working on one side or even both, and, in fact, I probably would've bought them instead if it weren't for that.
I received them a day before the earliest date Amazon told me I would get them. They came with quite a few attachments, ranging from large double-flange tips to tiny, simple tips, as well as including extra foam pads, I guess in case the ones that were already in fell out or something. I didn't bother with them, instead putting on the Comply foam tips that I bought earlier. When I first listened to them, I was underwhelmed by the lack of bass, as I had been warned I would. Did I make a mistake? Should I have gotten the Klipschs instead? However, I pressed on, and after about just 2 hours' listening, I found myself excited to put them on, and later on I even decided to turn the EQ off, allowing the phones' supposed neutrality to prove itself. Later I decided to put the wires over the ear, a trick I learned from the Head-Fi forums to reduce noise from the wire rubbing my clothes. They are quite comfortable, but the little metal engravery can be irritating if you like to jam it in.
Today, I think these headphones are well worth the price, and I'm glad I stuck with them. They're much clearer then any other phones I've used. The mid-tones and treble are very well expressed, and even the bass is quite clear, even if it's not as big and boomy as most headphones. The wire is just long enough to, say, take to the gym with you and not worry about accidental disconnection, even if you're about 5'11 like me. The build quality is pretty reassuring, being that the buds are made of metal, and the wire seems durable enough, even though it gets tangled up sometimes. I may eventually buy a FiiO amp in the future, since it supposedly makes them that much better, and if I do, I will attempt to update this review with that in mind.
The excellent midrange reproduces strings, horns, woodwinds, and especially voice quite accurately. They are a bit lacking on the low bass, so pipe organs don't sound as full as with larger headphones. Rap and hip-hop listeners will likely be disappointed by the lack of thumping bass, but rock, jazz and classical listeners should be quite happy. The mids may seem a bit bright for some poorly mastered pop and rock.
As a recovering audiophile, I'm glad there is an option this good at this price point. Running straight out of an iPod or iPad, they sound great. I would expect even more from them with a nice headphone amp to provide extra current. Who knows, maybe the bass will open up. These won't replace my full sized open-air headphones, but will be used extensively for travel and anywhere I want to block out the world and not bother everyone around me.
