Consumer review (head-fi.org)

The venerable RE272.

 

Holds a special place in my collection as it has consistently been my daily driver for several years. Sad to think if anything happens to my pair I won't be able to get another one.

Forward, resolving, rich, clear mids. Smooth, extended, clear and resolving highs. Very well balanced neutral sound

Not enough low end presence.

Re 272

 

The 272 would have to be one of my favourite IEM's ever. To get the best out of them I prefer it amped. The detail these things have is nothing short of outstanding. Bass is quick well defined and refined. So if you like your bass in ya face....not for...

Great sound

Tips can be troublesome.

Amazing sound for the price

 

My full review on Passion for Sound is here: http://wp.me/p1J5zo-70 In summary: A bit light on the bass - tight and clean, but lacking some oomph Sound is so clean and detailed, but not fatiguing Staging is excellent - on par or better than much more...

Magic sound, great detail, non-fatiguing, neutral sound, source-friendly

A little shy on the bass

flawless!

 

+ve Class leading sq(among the best of what i've heard).. I would definitely put the SQ as high as the Shure SE-535 & on par with the SRH-940 out of an HUD MX-1 Very coherent presentation - i think this is the most pleasing presentation an analytical...

Best I've Heard in a Non-Custom

 

The HiFiMAN RE-272 are the best sounding pair of non-customs I've put in my ear. Period. I wanted to try a pair after reading favorable reviews around these parts, and I'm glad I made the journey. The bass is slightly accented without overdriving. The...

Bass Done Right

Tricky Fit, A Smidge Mid-Heavy

Consumer review (head-fi.org)

Very clear and detailed

 

I've read a lot 'bout them and I'm owner of many HifiMan (RE0, RE252, RE262); I think these babies are "RE0 improved to the bones". Highs very crisp and mids refined: so I describe them.

Open, airy and clear

No one I think

Very Impressive IEM

 

I'm relatively new to the IEM scene (I bought RE0's for me and my wife two years ago and have been using them with great pleasure until they were stolen 1 year ago) I liked the sound signature of the RE0, but I have never taken them seriously as a...

Clarity, neutrality and realism

Noise isolation and split cable design

Consumer review (head-fi.org)

Great analytical IEM

 

Review is in the review thread here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/568515/hifiman-re272-review/135#post_7845383 Suffice it to say, these IEMs are perfect once equalized. No ifs or buts. Nothing I've ever tried matches these. Even without the sound is great,...

Excellent clarity, soundstaging, texturing and extension all around; comfortable fit; modular cable; good materials; decent isolation with right tips

Cable hardens, brittle; Somewhat bass lean; need long tips in the other 2 ways; bad tips included (but many); no portable case; slight wind noise

Consumer review (head-fi.org)

RE272 is the best IEM I tried. Very realistic, fast, neutral, accurate, clear, detailed while engaging sound.

 

Disclaimer: I've got my RE272 as a review sample for free. There are more pros and cons in my full review, like Quote: - RE272 bass accuracy is excellent, but I like to have it perfect. - Soundstage size is good for IEM, but I like to have more. But...
