What is it?
With the RE-600, it’s all about transparency and accuracy. While you might think that’s a given with all audiophile headphones, most have at least some bass bulge or midrange enhancement. The RE-600 plays it straight down the middle.
The RE-600, is unusually small and lightweight. Its tiny size makes a big difference in comfort, so after a few minutes, it’s easy to forget you’re wearing headphones. The company is tight-lipped about most of the details of the design, other than to say the gloss-black/machined-aluminum earpieces are fitted with an 8.5mm titanium-coated driver. During the course of developing the RE-600, Hifiman’s founder, Dr. Fang Bian, hand-built and critiqued more than 200 prototypes. He’s a tough critic.
When it comes to accessories, you are covered with an abundance of eartips, even redundant spares. You get 3 pairs of the same small bi-flange tips, 2 pairs of the same large bi-flange tips, 2 pairs of the same small mono-flange tips with a cross-bar across the opening, 1 pair of small mono-flange tips that look like they have a molded bi-flange, and 3 pairs of silicone custom large tips in a unique straight and angled designs. These custom silicone tips are priceless since they have a very comfortable and secure fitment and form a great seal to attenuate the external noise.
How does it work?
RE-600 adopts a 4-pin balanced output In-Ear Monitor (IEM) design with the left and right channel using separate ground cables, which in turn, can significantly reduce the signal crosstalk.
RE-600 features advanced ergonomics for superb fit and comfort along with premium materials such as a Titanium Diaphragm and Neodymium magnet. The all-new 8.5mm driver is patented and represents the Filter Diaphragm Coil best-in-class sound quality and performance.
Patented composite cable comprised of crystal copper and crystal silver, delivers lifelike clarity, superb imaging and musicality. The supplied 4-pin balanced to 3-pin normal adapter enables you to use the In-Ear Monitor (IEM) with most portable music devices.
