I honestly want to go with the ZO.
As long as I don't really need an amp and just want the bass boost, it will suffice correct?

 

I still gives a significant boost in high gain. Whoever complains about volume is LOD users with hard to drive headphones. It was meant to be used out of headphone jack though. ZO2.3 is a bit less loud than ZO2.1 that I have though but it still gives a decent boost, for my 64 ohm Q40 I go from 44% windows volume ampless to 19% on ZO2.3  and 14% with ZO2.1 for similar volume levels which I concider quite a significant boost.

So as long as you use the headphone jack, there shouldn't be any issues.

So the ZO is insufficient to power MadDogs?

Best is subjective really... the Zo Bass is more Colored and there is more of it, but you run the risk of BLOATING... where as the E11 is a Cleaner Bass Boost, but there is slighty less of it but also less chance to Bloat... so for example my Xb700's would LOVE a ZO because they are already so ZOMG BASS BOOSTED, where as my Dt 990 Pro 250's... I'ma stick with the cleaner leaner E11 bass boost...

 

Also how is the Agression on the ZO, the E11 is a NASTY little amp! Brings in some NICE detail and Attack on that bass

Pro900's, but overall the COP is more refined, the Pro900 is fairly dark.

I think that the ZO has cleaner bass with less bloat FWIR. If you are running the same amount of bass boost, I'm pretty sure the ZO will be cleaner. Obviously on the max boost on the ZO bass might be more bloated but that's hardly a fair comparison.

ZO is fantastic with my headphones, I hear details more easier in the midrange with Q40 especially, I keep mastering hardstyle tracks with my ZO activated, I usually pick up faint extra noises that's more of a usermistake easier with it for example, has already happened a few times that I hear something that a newbie producer on his 150~$200 KRK monitor speakers couldn't pick up.

 

I use mostly the ZO2.1 though, haven't used ZO2.3 enough to be able to accurately comment on detail perception. But ZO2.1 provides me lots of added punch but also more control. The FiiO bass boost also boosts lower mids a fair bit while the ZO's bass boost only affects <300Hz range.

Well there's also the $50 price vs the $100... so yea I need to buy a ZO2.3 and quit complaing :3 

 

Plus I want to get a Cowon C2 with an Xb1000 and Dt990 both of which might benifit from the Zo2.3 alot!

If your willing to drop five bucks get poweramp, it is fantastic! I've been using it in my HTC incredible for a year now and it has never give me any trouble and my friends are always impressed at hoe much better songs sound out of my phone versus their ipods =). The Eq is pretty robust, 12 bands I think I'll correct later with definite number xD

... I'm definatly willing to drop $5 and get Power amp :O so good to hear a recommendation :3. I use a free EQ on the my Droid that works pretty well, although I have found all "bass boost" suck the bass out of my XB700s from my Kycoera Hydro Phone... it's running Ice Cream Sandwhich... but I like the free and will stick wid it [don't want to even ATTEMPT to BUY better phone sound since my phone is only used when all of my 3 daps are dead e.e]

I prefer the E11 over the ZO2. Better SQ. Bass Boost is great.

post #3389 of 11221

SQ wise you cant really beat the E11 but bass boost qunitity wise you can beat the ZO
