Sony DR-Z6 (Vintage) - Page 9

post #121 of 124

Been a while since I posted here...

 

I now own all three of the DR-Z line, except the Z5 (which I sold due to it being obsoleted). The review I mentioned a while ago is still in progress; I lost a lot of it to a power outage so I've been slow when it comes to working on it.

 

However, I will say this much now: the Z7 is aeons ahead of either of the other two; its absolutely ridiculous how different all three of these headphones sound despite having the same driver topology. It is also the brightest of the three so a lot of people wont like it, and unfortunately its the least comfortable (with the Z6 being the clear winner there). But, it sounds so incredible that I don't even care. For me, they're a perfect match. The best I've heard... bar none.

 

Cheers.

Just picked up a pair of these. I was initially disappointed but after allowing my ears to adjust to their Initially bright presentation I was blown away by how detailed the sound is. These puppies are fast and detailed. Bass is all their, howeever, the drz6 lacks that emotive slam I sometimes like. Overall they seem to be a pretty great headphone. They also react very well to amping. Straight from my computer they still sound good but when hooked to the phonitor they really shine.

Are you insane? The Z line hits harder than any headphone I've ever used, it's unreal how much impact they can provide.

 

They are however mostly devoid of bass noise and bloom, so if you listen to other dynamics or even orthos you won't notice it for a while. Their bass is extremely tightly controlled without any bloat or fart. They are unique in that sense relative to other dynamics.

Theses were just my impressions after listening for 1-2 hours with very select music(not anywhere close to enough time to actually evaluate the headphone). I should have prefaced the post with it being an initial impression. I agree that the bass is fully represented and extends down quite low, however, compared to the lcd-2 or the d-7000 they lack real head-hitting slam(which Isnt a bad thing). Overall, I prefer a more neutral can.My experience may be due to listening at low levels and because I was listening to pretty bass-light chamber music. I will listen to them more tonight with some different genres and at higher volumes and post back how it goes.
