HiFiMAN + Massdrop = OMFG!!!

So, having had the HE-350 and being super duper impressed with it for the money its spanks pretty much everything in terms of value. if you want te read my full musings on them you can do so here. http://www.head-fi.org/t/816751/hifiman-he-350-headphone-review-by-mark2410 and if thats a bit long hit the TLDR to my circa 500 word quick review. So then i put the RE-00 in my ears the other day and holy crap!!! they are jaw dropping good. they are practicaly the RE-0 which wade headfi go nuts when they fell to US$100 but these are now on offer for US$35. Seriosly, i dont know how and its not that they are perfection but acousticaly they pretty much are. then for the price tag, seriously.
However the one thing that i can see being issues for more mainstream users is the balance of them both. these are by comparison to the sorts of things youl see in the likes of John Lewis, err Target? sorry dont really know american shops that would sell audio stuff. and if thats a bit long hit the TLDR to my circa 500 word quick review. So then i put the RE-00 in my ears the other day and holy crap!!! they are jaw dropping good. they are practically the RE-0 which wade headfi go nuts when they fell to US$100 but these are now on offer for US$35. Seriously, i dont know how and its not that they are perfection but acoustically they pretty much are. then for the price tag, seriously, seriously super good.

oh and if you care my review of the RE-00 is coming soon but id suggest if youre even slightly interested, order a pair now, dont wait for me to post it.

I just wish Massdrop/Hifiman would make a successor of the HE-500.

That's something I would buy in a heartbeat!
