Do you really price match?
We will match any e-Commerce (Online store) Authorized USA Dealer's advertised price. Please call us toll free (877) 370-1972 and alert us to where you found the product cheaper. We will verify, and if the site is an Authorized US Dealer- we will match their price. However, if the price is below the manufacturer Minimum Advertised Price (MAP)- we will have to get authorization to match the price. We will not violate our signed agreements that we have with our vendors.
What about price matching from an auction site?
We do not price match any auction or "grey market" site.
Be advised, any purchases from an auction or unauthorized (grey market) websites can lead to future issues in regards to warranty or support. Most manufacturers will not honor any claims or warranty from these type of sales. Spend your money wisely by purchasing from an Authorized Dealer. In a lot of cases, saving a little bit of money can cost you more after the sale is completed.
We offer a 30 Day Return Policy should you choose to return a product for any reason.
Since 1972 Sound Approach has backed all items that we sell. If the product you have purchased is not right for you, let us know. We strive to find the right product for your unique situation. We will work with you to find a sound solution and recommend what product will resolve your issue. That being said, we will credit, refund, or exchange any product you purchase within 30 days of your purchase.
Certain products, may be returned, but are subject to a restocking fee of 20%. Please contact us to determine, before ordering, if the item will fall into this category. Usually it is for the high-end electronics & audiophile-grade speakers. We want to make sure that we match you with the correct product, so please call and speak to any of our technical experts prior to ordering.
Four Important Conditions:
1. We need to get the original box, manuals, and any materials that came with the product for you to receive a full refund- with no re-stocking charges. The item/product must still be in like-new condition.
2. If the item had Free Shipping and you are returning a non-defective product, the original shipping cost will be deducted from the total that will be refunded back.
3. Special Ordered items are not returnable (see below).
4. Once an RMA is issued- it is valid for 10 business days. After 10 days, the RMA is canceled and returns will not be accepted.
Shipping and handling charges cannot be reimbursed unless it is our mistake. Yes, we can make mistakes – not often, but it can happen.
HIFIMAN - RE2000 - Universal-Fit In-Ear Monitors
By controlling unwanted distortion and vibration, our Topology driver provides clearer, more lifelike sound.
HiFiMAN's utilization of advanced depositional technology and research makes for a driver unlike any other in the world. With the creation of topological, Nano scale layer application technology upon a driver diaphragm, these in-ear monitors allow for a manipulation of sound wave creation like never before. No other driver technology allows for such control and precision resulting in clarity, detail, and nuance.
The "Topology Diaphragm" or "Topology Driver" refers to the diaphragm with a special Nano particle coating applied to its surface. The distribution of the coating has distinct geometric patterns. By varying the surface pattern, compound used, the thickness or geometric pattern sound wave formation can be manipulated to achieve the desired audio effect and control.
The idea behind the new Topology Diaphragm was inspired by Dr. Fang Bian's PH.D. thesis that "Different nano materials have differing structures and each of those materials have its own properties." Therefore, by carefully controlling the diaphragm surface structure you can yield different results in acoustic performance to a degree previously unobtainable.
With the application of rigorous user testing and comparisons to more fully understand the acoustic interactions that take place in the sound waves as they traverse from the driver to your ear. This in conjunction with our Topological Driver abilities have allowed us to still further advance the end user experience. The creation of countless prototypes and user testing combined with the Topological driver pattern changes mean your ear encounters the sound wave precisely as the original recording creator intended.
Through a process of repeated and seemingly endless prototyping it came down to three material options. Bronze, Copper and Brass. Just as the proverbial story of Goldilocks and the three bears, the first material, Bronze, was too hard and the second, copper, was too soft. However, Brass, Brass was just right. It being the ideal combination of workability and most importantly gave the best tonal properties with neither the fractional over rigidity of Bronze or the ever so slightly soft Copper. It was, as they say, just right.
The shape of the housing is again an example of blending industrial design, comfort and a striking visual. To the sweeping outer curvature juxtaposed against the angularity of the housing body yet seamlessly fitting into the ear. It at first glance looks like it cannot be comfortable, its angular and striking looks surely cannot be and yet, they most certainly are. The hard and yet soft satin exterior gently nestles itself into the listener’s ear where it provides excellent fit, comfort and isolates, all to give you the most wonderful of listening experiences.
For the first time HIFIMAN has created an In-Ear Monitor with user replaceable cable connections. This means the you can make use of future cable customisations to experience a range of cable types and cable construction materials, from Oxygen Free Copper to pure Silver. The RE2000 can be cabled to meet the requirements and preferences of all listeners.
The Topology Driver
HIFIMAN's utilization of advanced depositional technology and research makes for a driver unlike any other in the world. With the creation of topological, Nan-scale layer application technology, upon a driver diaphragm, allos for the manipulation of sound wave creation like never before. No other driver technology allows for such control and precision resulting clarity, detail, and nuance such that it can best the worlds most complicated multi-driver set ups but with none of the coherency and corssover issues.
The Topology diaphragm structure used by HIFIMAN greatly reduces the uncontrolled diaphragm distortions, enabling the operational performance of dynamiec IEM's to an approach to an ever superior, trent towards perfect wave control.
