    Oh sorry I thought you just bought them. Are the batteries rechargeable?
    It is a li-ion battery. You can recharge them.
    It's neat how it charges, the battery pops into a charger that plugs into your wall outlet.
    There are no cords or wires to deal with, but rest assured.
    You will not be disappointed in the battery life.
    From what I can recall, I have watched several hours of movies on my laptop.
    And the battery never failed me. IEM shopping. What earbuds/headphones do you use?-imageuploadedbytapatalk1389929330.866242.jpgIEM shopping. What earbuds/headphones do you use?-imageuploadedbytapatalk1389929350.649997.jpg

    Good luck, I know I paid over $300 for them.
    But Bose is like Apple. Pricey, yet the quality makes up for the cost.
    I would buy these headphones again, without a second thought. 😊

    Well, I've been trying to put in to words my impression of the RE-400s. But I don't think I could do these things justice. I will just say, they are insanely good. They are not "consumer" quality headphones. Meaning, the sound is not colored or tailored to fit specific genres of music. The bass isn't artificially boosted for hip hop and dance music. The mids aren't pumped up to give the impression of clarity. The treble isn't screeching in your ears. They just plain sound, right. Balanced and accurate and clear.

    These are audiophile-grade, with consumer-grade pricing. The clarity and separation blows everything I've listened to thus far, clear out of the water... With maybe the exception of the Bowers & Wilkins P7. The bass is very tight, if a bit light in the sub-bass. If you want deep pounding bass that drowns out the mids, these are not the IEMs for you.

    If you want to hear minute details and clarity, and accurate sound reproduction in live performance recordings, classical, and opera... and still want extremely balanced sound to enjoy more traditional music like hip hop, r&b, rock, and country... You could do a lot worse than these headphones. A lot worse. Even for more money. In some cases, a lot more money.

    If you are the type to spend a decent amount of money on headphones, do yourself a favor, spend a little less and try these. They don't have the mass name brand recognition or stylish good looks... But their sound quality can trounce their more famous, better looking, and overpriced competition.

    As impressed as I've been with the HiFiMan RE400 IEMs, I'm equally impressed with my Sennheiser CX300-II now that I've replaced the standard rubber ear tips with Comply T400 foam tips. The bass is a little stronger than before, and somewhat tighter in the sub bass. The details in the mids and treble still can't hold a candle to the RE400s for critical listening or acoustic live performances... But the warmth and bass make them a great fit for just plain enjoying music, especially hip hop, r&b, pop, and dance/electronic. Anything with a pumping bass line really.

    For $30, plus the price of Comply foam tips, the CX300-II IEMs are an outstanding value, and in terms of sound quality, easily keep up with, or outright destroy, much more expensive ear buds like the Beats by Dre urBeats... and are leaps and bounds above similarly price buds like my SkullCandy Ink'd and 50/50 in-ears. The only drawback would be the build. They feel pretty fragile. Especially the cord, which is thin.
