picture was on the previous page with no commentary. I have and enjoy the 1540 headphones also,

nice build quality and slick sound, bass emphasis.  somewhat artificial gestalt of sound, not rally musical

but enjoyable and entertaining. a unique phone for sure, and worthy of listening to or collecting.

I find the HFM 400Is much more detailed and musical, and the ol" sent 650s properly amped and dac fed

to be a reference phone that reveals more of the structure of the music., especially with an upgrade

Cards cable. the classic ath W1000 are my favorite phones

for rock and melodic music, especially through powerful  solidstate amp or MicroZotl tube amp.

1540s will be around for a long time  me thinks and are worthy audio gear!!!

Doing realize it until now, but today is Duke Ellington's birthday! Just heard Cottontail on WKCR. They are playing Duke's music all day, and stream the music, of course (wkcr.org). If you want to "discover" an American great, check it out.

Found a 2002 review about the original one here. Interesting...

 The MicroZOTL is a small amplifier, about the size of a typical shoebox, and weighs about four pounds.

I've never felt the need to buy new earphones after I got my rockets 

That's just to summarize how awesome it is

i will be posting a long review of the new MicroZotl2 as soon as it available for release,

probably in a couple of weeks. hold on to your ears!!!

I have rockets and asg1+ and don't feel the need for other iems either 😃

post #29082 of 29085
I'm not as sold on my Rockets. I have grown to used to the Z5 which has more bass and treble extension plus an amazing sound stage and imaging.

But I did try something new today though. I am just going to post pictures for now but at a $60CAD price tag this is going to be a very interesting option for bargain hunters considering it comes with MMCX replaceable cables.





The stem is different because it's smooth so not all tips will work with this IEM. But so far only the Sony hybrids have been a bust for me.

The default cable is a bit cheap feeling but has no bounce/step microphonics and only a small amount of running microphonics. 3Rd party standard MMCX cables work great though.

The IEM shell is extremely light, perfectly flat in ear (gonna try sleeping with them tonight...) and as comfortable as my best IEMs.

Sounds is... You have to wait and see wink.gif I want to let these burn in.

Boy those new Elecoms are sure getting pricy.

post #29084 of 29085
@dweaver Aren't those the Holy Serpent V9? Someone brought them up a couple months ago saying they sounded like that fotm Woodie with titanium drivers. Its 2:30 and I just woke up to use the "facilities". Not at my sharpest right now, haha.

Edit: Maybe not based on the hp15 badging...same housing though. I be intrigued! Gyar!

The HP15 is Apex at Long and Mquade which I suspect is just something bought from overseas and rebadged, so that Holy Serpent V9 may be the same IEM. I will read up on it a bit.
