Many of you might know Head-Direct from the previous in-ear reviews featured on this site. Not that long ago they announced a new model. Finally the RE0s are here, available at their website. They are the new high-end IEM solution from Head-Direct.
The previous Head-Direct RE-series in-ears look pretty much the same with only a few minor trim pieces to differentiate them, this has changed with the RE0s. The RE0s feature an aluminum casing which looks radically different coming from the all-plastic RE1s and RE2s. This change is definitely for the better and the materials chosen for the new earphones make them so much more attractive to look at.
These new in-ears do not share any design characteristics with the RE1s and RE2s, in fact they are redesigned from the ground up. The driver is a newly developed 64 Ohm dynamic in-ear driver which should deliver a better more neutral sound than the RE1s. The price of the RE0s is at the moment $200 in its early incarnation, but for that you also get a free FiiO E3 portable headphone amplifier. A great package because the RE0s are much like the RE1s, a set of very power demanding in-ears.
