EDIT: digiZoid ZO2 is $119, twice the cost of FiiO E11 at $59. The ZO3 will be a bit expensier most likely.

He meant the opposite, FiiO E11 is also slightly boosting the lower mids. It starts affecting frequencies below ~1000Hz while on digiZoid it's set at below 300~500Hz and the digiZoid has slightly deeper configured bass boost too. IMO the digiZoid has the best bass boosting ability. Especially the uncommon version v2.1 that I have can give some serious nicely sounding powerful boost, I feel the bass tickling my ears when the volume levels are kept reasonably low still, in my case I have set the ZO v2.1 digiZoid amp at 2 or 3 steps from the lowest volume level (this is due to my noisy onboard audio) and windows volume at 31% and I can still feel the bass tickling at every beat with my Q40 when listening to my hardstyle tracks. =)

To me no headphone provides satisfying bass without the ZO these days. I used to use EQing before but I can't seem to get equally satisfying result with EQ'ing as letting the ZO to do the job. I demand both quality and quantity. The ZO has been configured so that a lot more current is being focused into lower frequencies as those demand so much more power, this leads to more controlled & tight bass that doesn't affect the rest of the range as much.

I just hope ZO3 will deliver, it's set to have a lot stronger amping and the older ZO amps are somewhat underpowered (you will experience clipping if going overkill volume/bass wise but when you keep the volume levels within somewhat reasonable range, then this device will sing! The ZO3 will probably improve on this aspect though for you SPL nerds :p)

And that's the question - buy ZO2.3 or wait for 3 (any news, when it's coming out?).

 

So the Digizoid doesn't colour the sound? I remember trying Soundmagic A10, which my bass boosted yet neutral Merlins to an awful V-shaped sound...

I can tell I'm a bass head now. I long for the bass impact of my XB1000 when I'm using ANY other headphone. Also I now use the bass boost on the Fiio E11, which I previously didn't. You guys have converted me.

1. The e11 won't distort your LP's
2. I vote yes you buy the zo now
3. The zo is going to color the sound

You can find ZO's used for around $50.  I've bought three, had them all at one time and now only have the one left.  All were bought and sold for under $75 over the past two years. 

 

As an amp by it self the ZO is not great.  I prefer the E11 and ZO doubled up.  Tasty bass with no distortion.

Any amp will do, really. The one I have in the picture is the Project Iona from Palaios.

I would be careful with this setup, it looks a bit like those old-school TNT packages with all that brown + black stripes. :P

Somebody asked here for a comparison between HD8 and SRH1540, so here you go:

Comfort: SRH1540 (HD8 has stronger clamp force and the headband becomes uncomfortable after 1h for me)
Isolation: HD8 (perect isolation)
Bass: HD8 (more in quantity, more subbass, but very clean)
Mids: SRH1540 (not recessed as HD8)
Highs: SRH1540 (not subdued as HD8 - I had to EQ the Senns and the Shures stay flat in this department)

Anyway, the HD8 were sent back - mostly because of the comfort. If I'd have the money, I would keep both - the HD8 is great for electronic music (dat bass!), but SRH1540 is a better allrounder.
