HiFi performance from a unique, efficient design
Though relatively new to the headphone industry, HiFiMAN has quickly garnered a reputation for putting sound quality above everything else. While known initially for their planar driver over-ear 'phones, they are now producing audiophile in-ears, making it easier than ever to take their neutral, wide-open sound wherever you go. The RE-272, HiFiMAN's flagship in-ear headphone, delivers exquisite detail and low, expansive bass in a lightweight, durable design that can be easily driven by most portable music players.
Midrange presence and a wide soundstage distinguish the HE-272 from the competition.
HiFiMAN always goes the extra mile for great sound quality with the RE-272, they are breaking new ground. These versatile earbuds come with a wide range of listening options. The stock cable comes with a balanced miniplug connection for devices or amplifiers that can accommodate this sonically advanced feature. Don't have a balanced headphone amp? Not to worry: just pop on the unbalanced adapter and plug these headphones into any conventional unbalanced jack.
Customize your fit without sacrificing the integrity of the recording
As if the inclusion of balanced and unbalanced connectors wasn't enough, HiFiMAN also takes into account varying styles of wearing earbuds. While most people wear them in the correct ears with the cables hanging straight down from the earpieces, some listeners prefer to wear them backwards, switching ears and wrapping the cables up and around their ears for a more secure fit. So, HiFiMan includes two adapters (one balanced, one unbalanced) that reverse the channels, so you can wear these earbuds in either ear yet still enjoy the proper left/right mix impressive versatility from a forward-thinking headphone trailblazer.
However you choose to listen, the RE-272 can be enjoyed at home, on the go, or at the office. Not only do the included adapters give you options, but the included ear tip assortment ensures you can find just the right fit to block out distractions and seal in crystal-clear, warm sound. While efficient enough for portable players, these earbuds will really sparkle with a quality headphone amplifier paired with your stereo, iPod® or computer.
