Lot's of fun, perfect for bassheads!

Posted

Pros: Great bass boost, easy to use

Cons: Colours instead of numbers, no volume control

I've owned the digiZoid ZO for just a little while now, but it has really grown on me! It's the perfect amp for bassheads. It's pretty much an external EQ for your music player. It was absolutely fantastic using this listening to dubstep. The build quality isn't the best, mainly a bunch of cheap plastic but it's fairly lightweight so I'm comfortable throwing it around. It's really straight-forward as it only has one button which is used to increase/decrease the bass and power on/off. I'm not a huge fan of the colours as a measurement because it's not as easy to maneuver, "What's your favorite setting?" "Oh, I really like kinda orange-red". Also YOU CAN'T USE LODs. There is no volume...

ZO-EM-GEE!

Pros: Best bang for the buck bass amp out there!

Cons: Constant buzzing heard when charging while listening, via USB. Thus it's better to let it charge overnight, and enjoy the Zo unplugged from the USB.

I can't even begin to say how well the Zo works; just as advertised, no ifs and buts! To keep things short and simple, if you want powerful, thumping, top-notch quality bass gain, you need not look anywhere else, ever, again! When it comes to amps, I'm a skeptic, to say the least. While many offer potential 'tweaks', which (to a lesser extent) can be acquired through careful EQ-ing, the tweaks are hardly ever worth the premium paid IMO. The Zo on the other hand is priced competitively, and is in turn the absolute best bang for the buck. Monsterous sub-bass gain, with no noticeable midrange bleed whatsoever; coupled with a warm presentation that pushes the entire signature slightly...

the AMAZING WONDER of ZO

Posted

Pros: everything

Cons: none for now. coz it is what it is.. and im happy with it.

I would like to say my deepest gratitude to bro sherwino for hitching me in his group buy...without him i could never get my hands on this beautiful thing - the ZO. this is the story of the ZO... what is the ZO? well, to me, its like a boost. a boost not only in volume but in frequency, in bass, and unheard details/details that are buried in your music. its a small device that uplifts the experience and bring you to another league of FUN. I strongly believed that this item is not just an amp. well, from there ill try to define it more in experience. i tried using my iems with it. and the grado sr325is can. and i really liked how it performed...and what it did...

It actually does what it says

Posted

Pros: works as a decent amp, and the bass boost feature is surprisingly effective

Cons: the target market is a bit hard to define

http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/504037/mini-review-digizoid-zo-portable-subwoofer   That's my whole review. In summary:   The zo is an interesting product. It seems like it would be just marketing fluff, but it actually does work like they claim. I was able to get (seemingly) hard hitting bass out of some headphones that had never been able to produce anything like that before. As a portable amp, the zo is a bit better than most cheaper amps you would find, such as the various cmoy based designs on ebay. But the real star of this show is the smartvector bass contour EQ feature.   My only issue with it is that the target market is a bit ambiguous. It seems like it would...
