HiFiMAN is a brand with a lot of interesting audiophile-grade headphone and in-ears in their portofolio. Today, we will take a close look at the top-of-the-line RE-600s: The new top offering from HiFiMAN, these should best the RE-400s on all accounts, though we thought the RE-400s to be near perfect.
The price is $399, which makes these four times as expensive as the next pair of in-ears by HiFiMAN. This big jump in price will have the RE-600s compete with the highly regarded Westone 4Rs and newly released Ultimate-Ears UE900s—both are available at the same price point. HiFiMAN products are usually priced quite aggressively compared to more established brands, and if this holds true, we should be in for a set of truly great-sounding in-ears with the RE-600s. The RE-600s are the highest-priced in-ears HiFiMAN (former Head-Direct) ever released! We will drill them thoroughly to see if they can compete with the latest and greatest universal in-ears on the market.
