& I'm assuming isolation & comfort shouldn't be used in the same sentence lol


Since you liked the Ultrasone sound, why not try the Pro900?  It has amazing bass, comfort and a removable cable which I swapped for a V-Moda audio only.  I even swapped Alpha pads on to the speed switch pad connectors.  Very very comfy now.

If you don't mind the non removable cable, I would say try the ws99 as an upgrade to the dj1.

That's the main reason I have no interest in the pro900. Everyone says theyre more sibilant than the D2000, and that for me is a red flag

DT770 is so, SO good on long flights. Comfortable as hell, even on my huge head.

They also isolate sound VERY well, even though they have velour pads.

I didnt think they isolated that well. Guess i'm being spoiled with my dj's though haha

I used my pair of DT770 80 Ohm at work around people that were between 5 and 10 feet from me and nobody ever complained about hearing my music.

Im not saying that they dont isolate, just that to me its nothing special. Still a great pair of headphones though.

first impressions of wooduo 2 is that its terrible.

 

bass is not even impressive, hardly any impact or rumble for being 'basshead IEMs'. doesn't pair well with amps such as bh2, e11, zo, slightly sibilant, 'meh' highs. 'meh' mids. 'meh' bass. EXTREMELY dark and muddy as all hell

 

gr02 BE for 1/3 the price absolutely slices and dices it in every area including bass.

 

anyone who praises this iem for its bass or clarity is nowhere near a basshead or has never heard the zo lol (and it doesn't pair well with the zo either).

 

ebay time.. not even going to bother burning these in.

 

and no i am not biased and don't work for anyone thats just my opinion and not happy with the money i spent. its not worth anywhere near its cost which is probably why it goes on discount to $60 alot. i paid $110 usd.

This is very different to what I'm hearing. Are you sure you're getting a correct fit? I'm a qualified bass-head (lol), and I love the Wooduo 2. 

 

I have a large collection of universal IEMs that don't even come close to it's bass quantity.

 

I hope they haven't made a revision and not told us...

haha i didn't really mean the basshead part, just exaggerating cos im a poor uni student from aus and 120 is alot =p ill stop ranting now

 

yep, they definitely have the most bass of any stock IEM ive heard. i can see how everyone is saying these are extremely bassy iems, because they are, until you factor the zo into the equation.

 

i think the problem is im a bit spoilt by the zo2.3 (i almost always have it on max whatever im wearing LOL) so in comparison these iems aren't that impressive (they don't work together that well with the zo either). i also find that the clarity of a lot of other iems get maintained even when using the zo + e11 together so in comparison these aren't particularly mind blowing.

 

they're definitely decent stock, but don't go well or get affected much by amps which is either a pro or a con depending on which way u look at it.

 

either way, i just don't find the sound signature pleasurable. i probably just have bad taste haha considering all the positive reviews

I'm puzzled as to why you're using an E11 with IEMs - the E11 isn't designed for them, and has a high output impedance, which will not only create "hiss" but will not have a good effect on your overall frequency response.

 

I'm also confused as to why you're using a ZO with another amp..

 

Is there a reason for this?

 

I'm so keen to try one of those ZO units.

post #8609 of 11259

i think hissing is prevalent on sensitive iems, but in general its not really a problem with the e11. i know westone4, shure535, m4 are some problem ones. but im using 25 ohm iem and other people have reported little hissing using similar. i have both amps set to low gain with volume on max (always listen loud) and there is only little hiss when completely quiet. it doesnt bug me at all and is inaudible when music starts playing. 

 

not sure why double amping works well with zo but alot of people in the zo thread have found good results with double amping. its just not powerful enough by itself even for low impedance headphone/iems which im sure will change in zo3. i dont think zo2.3 is much of an amp in the first place.

 

the bass boost on e11 is very nice (i usually have it on 1, and go to 2 occasionally for some fun) and mixes well with zo and fills up the holes in the bass. i think zo is more rumbly while e11 gives more impact. its not a 'holy shat' combo but it is very, very fun and relatively cheap esp. if you are basshead.

 

looking forward to zo3 for more fun.

Wait, so you're using both the ZO on the highest setting, into an E11 on the second bass setting?!

 

You deserve a crown or a badge of honour in this thread.

 

Welcome, brother.
