Here at Massdrop, we've heard a ton of in-ear monitors, from $10 entry-level products to $1,500 flagships. Every so often, something wows us by punching way above our expectations; the RE300 is the latest product to knock our socks off. Tuned to sound fantastic with contemporary music while keeping mids clear and pristine, this HiFiMAN IEM is an incredibly impressive listen that deserves significant ear time.
Note: At checkout, choose between the RE300h (no mic, headphone model), i (mic, Apple model), or a (mic, Android model). For the RE300i, you have your choice between white and black color models.
Extending deep into the sub-bass and colored tastefully in the mid-bass, the RE300 will delight anyone who likes a tight lower-end thump. A lot of manufacturers mess up the balance by muddying the midrange, but this is HiFiMAN. Smooth, warm, and inviting, vocals are a captivating and engaging listen. Treble doesn't have the same level of shimmer and clarity as some of the better IEMs on the market, but is tame and free of peaks so that you can listen to the RE300 for hours on end. At 16 Ohms and a sensitivity of 108 dB at a 1 mW, these sound great and get loud straight out of your phone or laptop.
Whether you prefer wearing IEMs over the ear or just straight down, the RE300 slips easily and comfortably into the ears. Filters, eartips, and a shirt clip round out the accessories, and are all you'll need to get the show on the road. Whether you're using them as a travel pair of earphones or for stationary use, this is a HiFiMAN product that won't let you down.
