ACS is not a small brand, actually it is an industry leader and one of the most established in the business (21 years). If you like bling with your ciems look at acrylic monitors, silicon by its nature limits options, I prefer non-bling and ultimately its about the sound.... Some background from ACS website: Over time, ACS has formed partnerships with other world leaders from the field of hearing conservation and has developed cutting edge products that have helped people...
      After 32 hours of being played-in I have heard substantial changes in the way they render music, all for the better, as a matter fact, this is the first time that I have had a jaw dropping moment. The beginning was hard for the low frequencies, they didnt have any attack nor textural precision, also the highs were a bit tamed, but now its totally different; I can detect low frequency textures and the background instrumentation has become more liquid,...
Finally! I have them. Just began playing with them, so far they are more comfortable than my acrylic CIEM, I like the silicon. More comments on the sound later. For those that have them, what are your experiences with burn-in times, perceived changes or negligible?
   Mine took 3.2 weeks, I received an email two days ago with the notification that they were ready to be picked up, but since Im traveling I will do it until Monday... I dont know what is harder, waiting for them to be made or having them ready and not being able to pick them up.
 They are definitely not for noisy environments. These cans are designed for flexible home/office listening, forget fidelity if you plan taking them out in ANY urban environment or form of public transportation.  IMO, NC in the Zik2's is superior to the Bose, actually, the best NC I have heard. Yes the battery is terrible, I purchased two extra batteries and I have to charge and swap if I want to get through any transatlantic flight. Very impractical!  100% agree, these...
 This thread is slow! I would assume that it is due to the lack of new owners... I was expecting mine this week but ACS just told me that they expect them to be ready until Friday; they are certainly busy but I doubt its due to the universals. For those that have them, any opinions on the DAPs you have used? 
I am most certain that i will be moving to the zx2 and ditch my ak120, main reason is battery! I travel a lot in long haul flights and hate the consequences of running out of battery while listening to my favorite passage of Satyagraha.   Of course I also expect sound improvements vs ak120, I hope I am right.
 Yes, I found the sound lean and less musical (comparatively) in both Sony models, they also had issues with volume limit/amplification, while listening to complex classical passages I found them lacking in dynamic range, they could not deal with that well. The Zik2's do much better with that. I just landed in JFK and used the Zik's, they continue to satisfy me for this specific purpose, their NC is IMO the best in class and you can imagine that the Sony models had a big...
Here is the deal with the Parrot Zik 2.0 (cross post from: http://www.head-fi.org/t/710413/high-end-bluetooth-headphones/630 ) If what you are looking for is sound quality and YOU ARE USING AN APPLE DEVICE, this is the best out there. Yes, the battery life sucks and yes, if you have a big head these might not be for you, too many glitches you say, YES! However they have the best bluetooth sound I have heard. I have had 1rBT and the MK2's which I sold in the forum, also...
