As far as I know that particular pair is only 2 weeks old..Congrats Wayne, Let us know how they sound once you get em. They sound good from open box but they become unbelievable after proper burn in and some power.

I try to make any excuse not to buy more iems lol!

You need to try them mang, the S2 are good, no doubt, but these do things just that little better. You like lush mids with plenty of energy in your vocal(especially female), do you not? wink.gif

 

Nope. I hate lush mids. Female vocals? Ewwwwww

 

Whew - looks like I dodged a bullet.

 

Kidding of course! They sound very promising. I'll be keeping an eye out for your impressions of them versus the H200's!

and the treble sparkles.  audio breakthrough indeed!!!!!

Glad you found a great combo for the Basso. Have tried tip rolling to further improve the experience.

Yeah I'm thinking X1 is really my ideal sound signature in a headphone. Pretty much perfection for me. Loving them right now

Yes, somewhat lame, but I have read that there will be ways/options for replacing them if need be. Also, I'm sure that they will last me many years, so I'm not too concerned.

 

I was (and still am) interested in the KEF M500 headphones, but they are portable on ear headphones which have non-replaceable pads (no options at all I don't think), so they would be more of a concern imo.

I already have a couple of heaphones in mind but I am pretty interested in the X1, might have to see if someone around me ha a pair to try them out.


I'm planning to get the JVC SZ2000.

I gotta tell you guys the BX500 ba zero audios and the Tenors are both excellent. I think I am becoming a big Zero Audio fan here. It seems they can't do wrong at all. I bet even their base earphone the BX300 sound great for the $35 or so they are asking for them..

 

The BX500 has a real natural sound for a single ba. I can fully understand the potential here with their new upcoming dipoop earphones. Diplomats, diplipos. Whatever these guys are cooking you guys better pay attention. I would say while not the biggest known audio company. I really like how these guys are tuning their earphones. All 3 earphones I have heard from them the Bassos the Tenors these BX500s all of them are excellent.

 

The tenors are no joke either. They kinda remind me of the FXD70s a touch but has what clearly is the Zero Audio touch..One aspect I like about how these guys tune their earphones is they make non fatiguing sound exciting.. Absolute control is what this company seems to be about..Their BX500 is very excellent for having a single tuned ba..I can't see how anyone can tune a single ba actually better than the way they have it on the BX500s actually..

 

I seem to have lucked out in not having the driver flex issue many of you guys are having on the bassos. The Tenors have no such issue simply because they are micro hd drivers. So let me sum it up for the 3 Zero Audios.

 

The Bassos= musical Zero Audio. Great stage balance detail and bass, scales extremely well with more power.  Cons would be driver flex it seems, lacks just a touch of high extension to really set these off but it will be a non issue as you will be enjoying these so much..The highs aren't lacking on these at all..These have good to solid parts of their sound to really enjoy whatever type of music you get into especially in the bass region. The best bass out of all the Zero Audios.

 

The Tenors= Detailed Zero Audios good stage balanced with emphasis in the treble but not fatiguing or grainy. Imagery is excellent as are most micro hd earphones. Cons a touch on the thin side of sound but has great balance and positioning and a surprising solid bass end and stage to these..Guys that want their bass end to an almost ba like definition will like these as a great compromise.

 

The  BX500s= BA Zero Audio Great single ba sound..About as good as it is gonna get for a single ba. Solid imaging and space detailed but much like other BAs lack authority in the low los but acoustic music sounds fantastic on these. This one I am certain Kiteki would have enjoyed..

Get a brace for your head, the SZ2000 will pound it with bass. Make sure to burnin at least 500 hours.

 I have been burning my pair in pretty much on and off since I got them. Guys that own these people are gonna think I am crazy but. Burn in for these phones you guys have no idea. The bass on my pair is off the chain nice the overall sound is so dynamic. I read through Tylls review of them but on my pair even the low hitting low los are defined tight textured to crazy levels with intoxicating rumble. All my other cans are crying foul right about now..

 

If you guys are looking for a sound signature you can latch onto use these as a goal. One of these days. You must hear the X1 fully burned in..I am finally getting to enjoy these things and I have to say I am just completely blown away by their absolutely wonderful sound. I know it is easy and natural to get used to a phone but I never really got used to their sound because school time. I would periodically listen in on them here and there but I don't recall these cans sounds this good from open box.  My S2 share similarities to the X1 but it is the X1 that has an added dimension. The scope of sound is grander on the X1 bass is fuller with more authority,  sound a touch sweeter with that nasty large sized stage of the cans. I have wider sounding cans the AD900X but the use of that stage is what is killer on the X1s .. I am imagining just how much one would have to spend to reproduce this sound with speakers..It is amazing to me that we can get this type of sound in a sub $300 headphone..

 

I will be in possession of my precious-ness tomorrow. I'm not stoked at all. I lie...
