Edit: The FC models are also very good. A friend bought a few pair and I had a quick listen. Difference between the HF and FC are minimal, clarity and sub bass are the only differences between them.

Wonder how they'll compare to my Carbo Bassos.

I never heard the Bassos so I can't give you a comparison on them. But Onkyos are slightly V-shaped, warm-ish and has good extension into the lows once they are burnt in. Compared to the S2 however, they lack a little soundstage. Vocals are also slightly forward, allowing plenty of details to come through.(rather mid centric, which I find enjoyable)

The price starts at 57$, depending on what you need.

The Bravo Ocean is a wonderful little amp, silky smooth sound, especially with upgraded NOS REF tube from Germany.  however it gets

very hot and is not portable (requires ac, but a battery could be rigged up )  but at 75.00 its a steal!!!!!

I have read the whole listing. But with all due respect, it appears that you have not read and understood Theta Alpha 1's postings:

 

He wrote that he purchased it on the Chinese internet not on eBay. Moreover, he claims to have purchased a completely assembled unit for less than $200. If all this is true, then I am very interested. Yes, I suspect that I could get something very similar from the eBay listings you provide, but I would have to pay significantly more than $200 for a completely assembled DAC.

Same stuff you see on ebay can be bought on Taobao for much less, hence the difference in prices.

Also, "fully assembled" doesn't necessarily mean case and power supply are included. Sometime even opamps or USB module may be missing.

I wonder about the output impedance if someone have a info?

Anymore thoughts on the M200 other than that one main review on the M500 thread?

post #12580 of 32858

I note the cons of the Tenore's..."touch on the thin side...", I described them as having colors "slightly washed out" or something like that when I listened to them and compared them to some Sonys, AT's, Westones. Sounds like we're describing the same thing. Doesn't take away from enjoying them, do really like them, I'd liken it a bit to the way people describe tube vs solid state sound, some more richness in tubes, but you don't miss it listening to Solid State, and SS may do some things better. Just noting this because Ds is the only other person to hear and/or comment on this after my comment.

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..

The Bravo is tempting, though I really have no need for it. Since when has "need for it" made any difference, though?

So I don't know if it was destiny that I ended up with this unit here. Yes I just got this from a fellow headfier that was selling this at a price I could not refuse.. I threw this on my laptop just now and. I think I just pooed a little in my shorts.

Well My ME- 2Step combo set a new bar for me in stage and clean sound.

 

This is a NFB-5. This used to be Mad Lust Envys. Lol. This thing has dual WM8741 and all sorts of clean power and refinement in the sounds. The first thing I noticed on this amp is how full and rich the sound is.. This has warmth fullness smoothness. Ginormous stage and depth. Completely black background. The sound is so refined..This thing sounds amazing..I have all sorts of things I have to do today and I can't seem to get my S2s out of my ears. By the way guys. For the guys that own the S2 and or the X1s. If you guys haven't tried a more powerful source for these phones. You must. It brings both phones to a new level. 

 

I am hearing so much dimentiality in my music right now..Ya this thing is on the big. Does look like a cable box from the 80s but hey it has that much stuff in it..It is heavy and built like a tank. Love it. All I can say is now I know why they call the head man at Audio GD. KING WA. lol. Man knows his craft.

I think I'll wait until someone who's heard the Bassos listens to them to see where I upgrade to next. I want something with a similar sort of sound signature to the Carbo Bassos (Seem pretty balanced with a slight emphasis on bass but the bass is only present when called for and not overpowering). Looking for that 'next level' purchase for my dance music and beloved Kpop <3
