I have the RE-ZERO's for a couple of days and compared to the RE0's they're a very different kind of beast.
The midrange is very forward, almost like Brainwavz M1 forward. Bass is better but still not dominating. Treble is not there, or so it seems at first.
It gives a very different representation compared to RE0's, but details are there and there is better texture overall, soundstage is excellent. Guitar is superb, with details I have never thought of hearing. I'm happy with them, but you cannot compare, I found XCapes v1 a lot closer to RE0's than RE-ZERO's are.
If RE0 was an apple, XCape would be an orange and RE-ZERO would be a strawberry.
I get an excellent seal and very good comfort with Sony hybrids.
