Thank you.@kenpachiroks - Those RE-272s look great! Congrats. I loved all the Hifiman IEMs that I managed to try. I was an unlucky owner though and had all of them fail on me, wasn't just cable issues, the drivers themselves would cease to work.
As for your earlier question about the Noble ciems. I did consider them but it was working out to be quite a bit more expensive. I wanted to stick to silicone since my older JH13s did cause some discomfort after long use, the Noble silicone options were way over my budget
My venerable 272s look quite sturdy. Strain relief, cable, et al. I believe HiFiMAN introduced their improved build quality(over the previous models) with the 262/272?
I understand why they were so popular despite the build issues. God, they do weave magic.
Makes me want to try the RE-600 all the more. Have you?
Haven't your Music-2s landed yet?
