ZO2 Impression Thread - Page 40

post #586 of 1126

Cmon guys - the hornet stuff if all well and good, but we've gone from a metaphor for DigiZoid's current woes to a discussion of killer bees - even for you, lee370, this represents some massively OT thread derailment. Take it to the Lounge, pls.

So if I order now, I can expect to have a product that works completely as intended? Shipping to Australia just takes so long, I don't want to have to ship it back and forth >=[

Most likely. But it's always better to be safe than sorry and contact Digizoid first to make this clear.

When you reach level 32 (indicated by a change of lightbar color from blue to purple), you hold the wheel in the upward position for (I think) 3 seconds. It will then automatically switch into high gain mode. To come out of high gain mode just rotate the wheel downward once, and it goes back into low gain mode.

 


So if I understand you correctly, the high gain mode will not have a volume control feature (one click down will bring it out of high gain mode) ? If that is the case, it's fine for headphone out users, but would absolutely kill the line out functionality as it would be the same as zo1?

Please correct me if I am wrong.

I don't think that is the case. There will just be a high gain mode and the low gain for IEM usage. You will still have the volume contour, same for the bass. So if you have it on high gain you should still be able to raise or lower volume, but you'll be able to get it much lower with low gain (a plus).

Actually, it sounded more like if you -need- to go into high gain mode, you're pretty much unleashing Pandora's box, so to speak. I'm not sure, but the v3 sounds like it would be possible the best combination of the LOD/hiss fix and the original. This would make it the ideal product and the ideal version as it would answer all critiques. I'm very tempted, but I still love my v1 so I'll leave it be like a few others are doing.

 

I have to say, surprisingly, my Zo2 gets most of it's usage through my Beamer's sound system. I can't even listen to anything normally now through my speakers. I almost want to use my Zo2 for gaming, for everything, because of how awesome it has been for making my normal music dead to me.

Never having used either ZO or ZO2, i can't say for certain, but from the documentation I have read on their site and this thread, it would seem like they have statedd that the Rev.3 adds back some of the functionality that the ZO had. So if the ZO had a high gain mode without volume control, then it can be assumed, unless otherwise corrected, that they just put that feature into the ZO2. 

 

Also, can't wait to get mine. I ordered it last night. Hoping i get it within the next two weeks before i go on vacation

I also own the ZO1, if I didn't, I wouldn't be so unimpressed by the ZO2. Upon receipt, I tried it out with a LOD from my iPhone, maxing out the vol on the ZO2 (hiss fix/rev. 2), and said: "that's it !?". With the LOD and the ZO2 on max vol = ZO1 via headphone out and the same test tracks set to 50-60% vol on the iPhone (both ZOs set to level 7 on the bass bump setting). So I know the device has a lot more to offer, which I am hoping the hi gain setting will achieve, but I am doubtful the setting will have a volume control, as I am not sure that a single button/volume rocker can handle more commands than it already has ? I am going to send mine in for rev. 3 and hope for the best.

So some of you are asking about the high gain mode and volume control. Unfortunately, high gain mode will be *just* like ZO V1... where you have to use your source to control the volume.

I received mine. I guess its V2, shipped 10 days back.I have just listened to it for an hr with three IEM xears n3i, Visag r03, and RE0 & I should say I am unimpressed. I am not saying disappointed I would wait for 20hrs burn in time. But I am not sure if it changes first impression.
