We were impressed with how accurate the Hifiman RE-400 earphones are, as well as their simple yet elegant design. At $99, they slide in just under the sub-$100 threshold for the list.
The good: The affordable HiFiMan RE-400 In-Ear Monitor earphones have an attractive, understated design with machined-aluminum earpieces. They're lightweight and comfortable to wear and offer exceptionally pure and refined sound.
The bad: No inline remote/microphone for cell phone calls; no protective carrying case included.
The bottom line: While they're light on extras, the well-priced HiFiMan RE-400s offer excellent, accurate sound that's aimed at audiophiles on a budget.
