Head-Direct has just released their RE1 earphones which are quite different compared to all the other in-ears on the market today. The special thing about them is that they are based around some very unique performing drivers that scale particularly well. The better your amplifier is, the better their sound, leaving the competition behind in the dust - if you have a good amp.

I'm still a little confused- you didn't address the matter of whether these earphones would benefit from an amp or not... the high impedance suggest they do but....???

They benefit a lot from amping, have a look at the performance section of the review. As I state the they scale really well, the better the amp the better the sound quality.
