Twister6 posted a review of the HiFiMan’s RE2000 IEM over on Head-Fi. It is a single dynamic driver IEM priced at a flagship TOTL price ($2,000). From the reviews it seems to compare well with IEMs priced in the $1,500 range. While I do own some of the IEMs in this price range I would recommend steering clear of the IEMs over $1,000. Unless weight and size are critical to you such as when my job required 100% travel, I would recommend purchasing a great pair of headphones and DAC/amp.
Pros – detailed hi-res sound, excellent bass response, wide soundstage, unique topology diaphragm tech, removable cable.
Cons – price, ergonomics of the design, eartip selection.

Review of the HE-400S
Marcusd along with Mike over at Headfonics just posted a thorough review of the Hifiman HE400s. It’s priced at only $299 which is incredible for this technology. However, Mike mentions that he doesn’t believe it should be in the HE family of headphones. Hit the link below to find out why.
The HE400s Review
Brian Murphy has posted a review of HIFIMAN’s HM901s a follow on to their successful HM901. Improvements include faster boot time due to a faster CPU and DSD support. The latter is a table stakes nowadays. They also replaced some of the plastic exterior with aluminum making for a better fit and finish. The HM901s has plenty of power driving Brian’s HE1000s.
