  • Summary: Fang (Head-Direct, HiFiMan) was kind enough to donate some door prizes for our recent Bay Area meet.  I was pretty happy to win, but at the time I really had no idea what exactly was in the nice little black box I had won.  Turns out it was the RE-262.
  • Pros: Warm, euphonic, and fun.
  • Cons: Much better with amplification.

  • Summary: I’m a little late to the Hifiman RE series party but I thought it was time to get this party started and I did with the RE262.  Wow!  This level of musicality and refinement was not expected.   The RE262 is an odd shaped phone.  It is made to wear down or up.
  • Pros: Lush and inviting midrange; Very musical
  • Cons: Bulky modular cable; requires and amp to shine

  • Summary: I was really looking forward to enjoying these. After plugging them in, I quickly realized that there was very little sound coming from the right IEM. I plugged them into my Fiio E11, and wow.
  • Pros: Great forward mids, tight, controlled base, smooth treble
  • Cons: Right channel does not work out of iPod Classic on these headphones ony

  • Summary: I liked them much with instrumental music or whatever that does not require a large soundstage. Others mentioned that it has a large soundstage for an IEM, i agree. It doesn't have the crisp, lively sound my most of music requires so i sold them.
  • Pros: Well detailed, never harsh, sweet midrange
  • Cons: Rolled off treble, not an all-rounder, not as engaging
