The discovery thread.! New NiceHCK DZ7 1DD+6 BA iem impression by ericp10. Page 2153 - Page 710

post #10636 of 32868
So this is my opinion on many iem and headphone SQ alone. Best item which sound best gets 10, then others get relative score to best. So if score is 9.9- it delivers 99% of sound of best.
1. HD-25 10/ CKS99 10
3. CKN-70 9.9
4. CKM-500 9.7
5. CKS77/ TF10 9.6
7. HM5/HD595 9.5
9. Westone 2/xba-4 9.4
11. MMDT 9.3
.......
MH1-C 9.1
SE-215 9
VC-02 8.9
monoprice 8320 8.5
awei es300i/es800m 8.5
FX40 8.2-because of treble
sm e30 8.1
fxd80 3-unamped, 7.6 amped
beats tour 4- 100% genuine
orange dx buds 1
nokia earbuds 0.0000001

Can't get the 1000 now that many things are getting better and closer in SQ and they are probably going to lose the turbine look-alike design and adding better fitting/looking curves.

i am with you on this one jants, i am waiting it out until they makes something without that earbud/ iem hybrid housing design. The 77X seems like an improvement on the overall design due to the smaller profile and the earbud part is smaller.  So here's hoping... popcorn.gif

Holy crap those fxd80s are that bad for you. I still need to try them out and see for myself, but i don't believe they can be that bad tbh.  You even put the FX40s over them??? blink.gif

 

Everyone has different tastes/ preferences and all but still..... triportsad.gif

Before the FXD80s were burnt in I thought my FX40s sounded better. They were so cold and sharp. It was really how cold they were and the lack of bass that turned me off. After they were burned in they are awesome though. They sound like a more refined S500 in IEM form to me.

here's something for all of ya zero audio lovers - new single and dual driver models. yes, you can start saving up :D I know I'm doing just that :D

post #10640 of 32868

Oh god that's me in trouble, what i think is the basso model might probably be too bassy for my liking, going from the build size, but those tenore's look gorgeous especially that nozzle.

 

I feel an itch coming on.

 

Can anyone translate for us what's being said, thanks.

post #10641 of 32868

from my veeery limited Japanese, I think that those are:

 

BA drivers single and dual driver configurations

made from carbon fiber and glass (I'm not sure about glass but I think he says it)

that's it. doesn't say much more...

I haven't tried the Tenores, but...

 

The basso's bass is very nice. I never feel that it is too much though. Imo, they have less mid-bass quanity than the vsd1's, but the bass extends deeper when required, has more detail and is better controlled. Very nice. The fact that the Basso's seem just about perfect for me is the thing that is holding me back from the Tenores...

 

Anyway, if you like the bass of the vsd1's, I personally think that you would love the bass of the basso's. Having said that... go for the Tenores - I would love to know what you think! evil_smiley.gif

Well carbon fiber is essentially carbon weave and fibreglass epoxy, perhaps something lost in translation.

The dual ba has me very interested, no idea of a release date?

Well, if you trust the translation of chrome the release should be this fall with the price still undecided

Interesting.  I'm the opposite; I'm curious whether I'd like the Basso more, but I'm liking the Tenore so much after burn-in.  I no longer find the bass lacking.

I should point out that I find the Basso's treble to be just about perfect for me.

 

I don't think that we are helping each other with the resistance lol!
