ZO2 Impression Thread - Page 20

post #286 of 1126
Thread Starter 

DigiZoid, on the behalf of myself and I hope, other head-fiers I'd like to say that the ZO is a great product and you have superb customer support.

 

Ignore all of these people.

Ignore all of these people.



Ignore them because they dared to complain about a product that they had actually paid for ? Read some of the Impressions threads for other kit on Head-Fi - any complainants are ruthless, and thats purely in terms of perceived SQ 'failings' - read various impressions of Grado's SR325is, for example. For an amp example, read some of the vitriol around the ALO Continental : this isnt some e-bay guy pushing out $80 CMOY clones, but Ken and ALO were unmercifully hammered here. As far as I'm concerned, DigiZoid have earned themselves a spot in the 'naughty corner' with companies like NuForce, and in both cases that comes down to poor QC.

 

I'd like the Digizoid apologists to ask themselves this simple question : if it was YOUR product, one of only two you had ever produced for retail sale, would you have shipped this batch without testing them first ? In any factory, whether its toilet paper or munitions, I believe that someone has a QA checklist to confirm that the product meets specifications. Several have cited Intel, Ford and others as examples of big companies that get it wrong - do you think someone didn't get fired in many of those cases ? That stock prices didnt suffer ?

 

Insisting that other Head-Fiers dont vent their spleen is, IMO, ignoring the reality that DigiZoid are selling a commercial product not handing out lollipops at a kid's fete. There was no attempt to 'road test' the V2, as so many other audio companies are now doing - it was shipped and the company is going to have to take the feedback on the chin. If they turn things around, great - I look forward to seeing where they go from here.

yep I agrree ^ with SkinnyPuppy 2000%, velcome to life, ain't nnooo guarantees, at least DigiZoid is RECOGNIZING the fouble, a hell of alot more than most others would do, they are NOT passing the buck, people give them a chance, times like these try mens maturity, or lack there of, ggrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!! anybody knows the so called hype of the ZO v1 ain't NNOOO hype, its the realest deal!!

 

and with new product especially cutting edge vector tech, comes an element of trial and error, their trial and your error for jumping the gun with v2, should have bought the v1, shame shame on only yourself, for missing the band wagon on that!! cuz I love hearing that little awesome buggers sweet meloudious thumping sound, EVERY SINGLE DAY, sucks to be any of you haters for certain,

 

and there wasn't any hype with the ZO v2, how can that be, until it was released, it was ALL speculation and expectaion only, based ONLY on the ZO v1s performance, which is tested tried and true 2000%, and until v2 was made, released, and shipped, NNOOOO guarantees about it, new technology and also a new product, what the hell you've only YOUR SELVES to blame for any and all dissapointments, should have waited well now you should know better, but it seems like some people will continually be getting in that that line and then piss moan complain and blame anyone but THEMSELVES, GROWED da hell UP!!!!!! look in the mirror and you will see where the ultimate source of all of you problems are, live smarter not harder my "friends" oh well for some the glass will always be empty,

 

oh and by the by happy listening, I am!

 

poor estreeter gone over to the dark side he has, we will miss him until he finds hiw way back to us, keep a good thought for him at least, in the mean time! 

 

"well always look on the bright side of life!" TA DA TA DA TA DA!

Everyone needs to stop beating a dead horse. It is already dead. The problem has been taken into account for, and DigiZoid is going to fix it. They already are in the process of doing so. When the updated version comes out, we may begin the whole problem stating again, but whatever is being said now doesn't matter. Just hold out for the updated model and then we can resume discussions. Other than that, please just post impressions that you have of the original Zo v2 so that they may be included in the first post. That is what this thread is for.

Sure - why don't we ask Jude if we can start a whole new forum dedicated to bashing new product, because clearly thats what we naysayers are all about - bashing new product for no particular reason. Haters gonna hate, and I guess that's just the way we haters are - hateful and mean-spirited.

 

btw, I believe that I had 'stopped typing' prior to a flurry of responses from DigiZoid apologists - if you check the other thread, you can see that there hasn't been the same level of emotional energy invested by anyone, least of all the OP.

Anderoan, I don't know whether to laugh or cry. That is either 'Post of the Year', or it may be enough to have make next Psych Board hearing very short indeed. In either case, I salute you as a worthy, if barking mad, adversary. biggrin.gif

I don't think you get it. Please read the title of this thread. It says impressions, not complaints. Even you yourself said people want to go to a thread to read the impressions, not a pile of complaints. The vast majority of this thread will no longer be applicable once the new updated version of the Zo v2 comes out.

 

Maybe someone should go make a Zo Suggestions thread. Then you can suggest whatever you want all day long and I could care less. Heck you can even suggest how they should run their business. But this is an impressions thread, I am only trying to keep this on thread on track.

Right, and when I posted to that effect in the first few pages of this thread, I was dismissed as one of the 'Thread Police'. Strangely, we haven't heard too much from Kiteki since.

post #294 of 1126

Now that I think about it, maybe it doesn't matter where this thread is going. OP will embed all impressions in the first post anyway. Brilliant move on his behalf.

 

Sigh.

 

Carry on.

estreeter, that's not fair on rpgwizard, IMO he wrote is review on based on ZO1, at that time he did not even know about the ZO2. It was a good write up just like all the other reviews who were wrote by people who knew what's good and what's not.     I have yet to see a bad review on the ZO1, that's what most of us bought into that the ZO2 was either going to be just as good or better.

 

There was always some risk with buying the ZO2 untested and not reviewed.

 

Digizoid have a choice either do nothing about it or do something about it, we know they are doing..... BUT if they did not, I'm sure they would get a boat load of returns for refunds.

 

I will stick it out and hopefully the problems get sorted out, if not I will return it ... I am sure everyone who preordered has that option.

 

But it's not worth making personal attacks and getting all bend out of shape about ......

While the language may have been out of order, the 'STFU' was a reaction to the same sentiment from RPGWizard and others, advising those of us who had issues with the way DigiZoid release the ZO2 to 'STFU'. If this was the only thread where 'Impressions' had become a bashfest, I could live with it, but that is a long way from being the case. I dont particularly like the anarchic nature of the Net (moronic comments on youtube vids being a classic example), but I cant go around telling people to 'stop posting', and that is exactly what RPGWizard and others have done. Have we made a mountain out of a termite mound ? Probably, but you dont fix that by poking sticks into the termite mound .....

Oh the histrionics.  God forbid we act like rational, reasonable human beings; even in the flame worthy world of the internet. No one is telling anyone to stop pointing out issues with zo v2.  If the issues are pointed out, they can be fixed and potential customers made aware.  They are asking for the histrionics to tone down and put it in perspective.  You'd think someone invented the cure for cancer, only to give them aids as a side effect.  But march on First Calvary PMS Batalion, march on.

Gentlemen lets all just calm down please. There's really no need to get upset at one another. I've run across most of the people on here on other threads and until now you've all been quite friendly to one another. It's really not worth getting all snippy with each other when it's no one's fault that the ZO2 was shipped the way it was. Agreed that after all the waiting you guys have done it sucks that the ZO2 wasn't the product you were all hoping it to be but it's really not worth making enemies over the issue. Anyone who knows me in real life knows when it comes to big business I'm far from an apologetic when it comes to faulty products. My friends have all heard me rant about certain Sony/Apple/HP products and how they mishandled obvious short comings concerning problems their products had. All I'm trying to say is although Digizoid screwed up at least they're trying to do something about it and considering they're a small outfit we should try to be a little understanding that they're going through a learning process concerning how they choose to run their business. After whats been happening on here I'm quite confident Digizoid will look into better quality control methods and maybe even contracting out to a better company for product assembly. There are many other companies out there in this and other lines of business who would deny the problem or make up excuses. You only have to surf around the mobile tech blogs to read some of the rants that users were having concerning a certain CEO and his infamous you're holding your phone the wrong way email to see what I'm talking about.

 

To some of the people who are overseas who have stated how expensive it would be to send their ZO back for repair I can only comment that I'm sorry to hear your investment didn't work out for you. If it was me I would try emailing Digizoid and mentioning the expense of returning your unit for servicing. Considering the circumstances maybe Digizoid might offer a better option that could at least make it a little cheaper for you. It's just a suggestion on my part which hopefully bares fruit and I think it's worth pursuing rather then just giving up.

 

My two cents

I hope so as well.  Overseas shipping, especially with some of the customs rules I've read about, can be quite steep and I'm sure this plays a part in some of the anxiety.  I have my fingers crossed my UM CIEM's will not need a refit for the cost of shipping, with tracking, alone.  Not to mention the time involved.
