Review of the HiFiMAN RE-600 – An average sounding earphone that’s ridiculously overpriced in the UK

Pros: Comfort, accessories, lightweight design
Cons: UK price, soundstage, isolation, overall sound quality for its price

Packaging & Accessories: 9.5/10
Build Quality: 9/10
Design & Look: 8.5/10
Microphonics (higher ratings means lower cable noise): 9/10
Isolation: 7/10
Comfort: 10/10
Audio Quality: 7/10
Value: 4.5/10
My final Rating: 6/10

Purchase Date: May 2015
Purchase Price: £320
Update: I was told by Amp3 that they have reduced the price down to £155-159 – I won’t be re-writing the review and therefore the price will stand at the £320 mark, which was the original price of the unit when the item was sent to me for review.

HiFiMAN RE-600 - Details

First of all I would like to thank Advanced MP3 Players for sending me the HiFiMAN RE-600 for a trial review.
The RE-600s can be found on Amp3’s site for £320.
They can also be bought on AmazonUK for around £320 and AmazonUSA for around $200.
As they can be found from various sources, I will be reviewing these at the given Amp3 price-point of £320 / $480.
