Which would you say is a better upgrade from the Carbo Basso out of the S2 or Onkyos? I like the sound signature but would like something a bit better (If that makes sense! Overall better sound whilst having a similar sound signature)

Message from Zu this morning:

 

Hello Eric,

Thank you you for your message and interest.

Sorry for any delay in response, we've been out of the office with the Labor Day holiday.

We use eBay as a promotional source mainly to help get the word out.

The Mission iPod cable has been/is/will be offered through our direct website.

eBay will be reserved for items from our "Classic" line.

Thank you again.

Best,

Zu Audio

 

 

Still think they're making a mistake, but oh well.

Prices are higher on their direct website. And I went to their direct website the other day and could find that cable at all. Something is fishy to me.

d marc0 my ranking really shouldn't be taken as the S2 sounds waaaaaay better than the H-200, or that I don't value the sound quality of the H-200 anymore. Although I do think the s2 is technically better in sound quality, most of my rankings here are base on sound preference. I do find that I like a more neutral sounding IEM with bass. The S2 and M200 gives that to me. I love the sound of the Re-400, but it needs more bass.

If more colored is your thing why not purchase the CKS1000. It's still a great sounding earphone. There have been earphones that weren't technically better, but I preferred over top tiers. Then top tiers - such as the TF10 - that a great many loved on head-fi I could never get into fully because of the sound signature. The UE900 does nothing for me (although I love its tips), but others swear by it.

Haven't gotten my Onkyo yet. And because I got the premium so cheaply, it's no telling when amazon will get off of its bum and send it to me.

A lot of talk about the S2, but none about the S1.  Do the S2 sound significantly better than the S1?

post #13704 of 32908

According to IjokerI in his review on innerfidelity, the S2 sounds "marginally" better.
 

post #13705 of 32908

I thought Dsnuts heard the S1, but I'm not certain.

Anyone try the Monster Gratitude?  Original $230, but now down to the $60 range.  Wondering how they compare to the Zero Audios.

Thanks ericp, I understand what you mean. Like you, I like a neutral sounding signature with a touch of bass + sub bass. The H200 + Accudio profile with bass boost on Ipod Touch seems to be the perfect signature for me. I did the same thing with the XBA 3 and they now sound a lot more like what I really prefer. I have a good feeling that I'm gonna really like the S2 unless I also end up with fit issues.

What? $230 becomes $60? That's a helluva bargain! I wonder if the Miles Davis Trumpet is also discounted?

 

EDIT: Just checked out Monster's website. The Gratitudes are $100.

Buy it, you won't regret it.  The Gratitudes are awesome headphones.
