I think they'll probably do QC tests that first week in January and make sure everything's legit, then send 'em next week.  Pure speculation by me, but makes sense

Anyways, hope you enjoy your holidays too if you're celebrating.  That reminds me I should really go out and buy some beer for tomorrow beerchug.gif

I got my confirmation. Looking forward to testing this bad boy out...

 

Hello Jimmy,

Your ZO2 version 3,  with high gain mode,  was shipped by United  
States Postal Service (Air Mail) on Dec. 23rd.,  with a scheduled  
delivery of 8 to 10 business days.

  A revised Smart Start Guide is accompanying your ZO. Please take a  
few moments to review it,  as changes to the functionally have been  
made.

  Best regards and happy holidays,

Cindy,
digiZoid customer service

I was almost going to order the ZO2...but then the E17 was given a date

(rockboxed) Clip+ > Zo2 > Ety MC5

 

I've been using that as portable for over 2 weeks now. I always liked the etys for their midrange and clear sound, but always though they sounded "thin". but not anymore, and the hiss is almost unnoticeable. I'm using the yelow to orange contour level and it is just perfect. bass impact is unexpected for a single BA IEMs with a small tube body.

 

BTW, I read like 1 month ago that we were (finally) getting real technicall specs for the Zo2, but I cant find them anywhere.

I got my Z02 upgraded or "repaired" a few weeks after receiving it and compared it to the UHA4 and 601 with my GR07's.   After a short 20 min A/B, I concluded that the Z0 reduced the mid/high dynamics.   Just now I did a much longer A/B, this time with my touch(also cracked 3 days earlier) and uha4, GR07's again(I accidently smashed the screen of my 601 with my elbow getting into my truck- klutzomania!!)    After an hour with acoustic/vocal, I made the same conclusion.    Definately the bass is tighter and louder with the Z0 at the lowest contour setting 0, but voices lose their dynamics and sounded compressed.   To some ears, I'm sure this may sound "smoother" but to there is a definate ceiling to voices and guitars etc. (I actually compared the infamous latest version of the Arrow and Uha4 half a year ago, and sent back the Arrow.)   This A/B with the Z02 with my UHA4 confirms to me the awesomeness of the 4.   While it would be nice to have a tighter and perhaps louder bass, I'll try to get that thru my IEM's, hopefully my JH5, due to arrive any day will equal the bass of my GR07 or better it.  Actually, if the UHA4 had a bass boost.... maybe by next Xmas!

I presume you are gonna sell your ZO2 then? Will have to do some comparisons when my unit arrives.

Yes he does. So you are saying the Z02 Rev. 3 doesn't exhibit this issue?

You are correct. Rev 3 doesn't have that issue. 

post #972 of 1126

So you are saying I need to send it back to you again?   Then how about emailing a prepaid postage as I mailed it back last time.   That would be the professional thing to do since you got everybody on the site excited then had everyone send it back to you cause it wasn't right.   I'm sure you are professional in handling your customers for your mistakes?

I did the first mistake when I bought it on pre order... So, I'll keep it until everything is fine, then I'll send it back, if everything goes OK with the revisions... I think it was a huge mistake for everyone that sent it back for rev 2...
