The discovery thread.! New NiceHCK DZ7 1DD+6 BA iem impression by ericp10. Page 2153 - Page 1220

Thread Starter 

I am just telling it like I hear it.. Like I said I have not heard a ZA earphone I didn't like. I expected they will up their game with the doppios and that is exactly what they have done.

 

I have seen the doppios sell for as little as $130 on Amazon Japan. Skip flea bay as they are more expensive.  If you guys see it for that price and own a tenso account. That would make for one heck of a deal for these..

 

Speaking of the pistons..I ordered a pair. Look forward to hearing them.

I just have to wait until my DUNU, AT, and Piston come in first and audition each before I can pull the trigger on the Doppios. If either the DUNU or AT don't work out for me, then the ZA is next on my order list.

That train is actually on the same line that I live on. It's headed towards the Northern suburbs of Melbourne.

On second thoughts, I can actually RIDE the hype train.

Anyone listen to the Monster Npulse old edition. Selling for $100 or so on Amazon and eBay, not a bad price for a pair of full size cans.

Yup, I live in Essendon, which is on the same train line.
Still got the SZ2000, monstrous bass and huge soundstage after 300 hours of burning. Might get the Npulse, already got the Pistons on the plane.

You and me both. I'm currently happily enjoying my IM70. If Pistons turn out to be the end-all-be-all I will buy them.

All psyched after the concert, gotta post some more, Steve Bernstein in his various bands, really needs to be seen live, but you get some idea. Henry Butler is amazing-sounds like what you'd get if you crossed Professor Longhair and Phineas Newborn (or, to use 2 somewhat more well known examples, though not quite as accurate an analogy, crossing Dr John and Oscar Peterson…). A true original, Bernstein defers to him in this band…it's built around him, the other 8 players take his music and expand/add punch (though, as you can see from the solo piano, he has plenty of punch on his own). Great show!

That's the problem I have with all single BA sets I've tried as well. Unless you throw a triple flange on it and shove it halfway through your skull, bass is seriously lacking.

 

Coming up on 25 days of Piston slow boat waiting. Still better than paying a higher shipping cost than the actual cost of the item.

 Best stuff of the show:  Vali, Asgard II, Fostex TE05, Geek, Vanatoo, Lau, Teton, LcdX ($800 too much though), dBel's LCD3 modded.  Sanders and Venture speakers.
 
 
Pretty decent: RHA 750 (Fostex TE05 kills it though), Phillips headphones, Woo WES and Monoblocks (not even as bad as some competitor lunatic fanboys say).

 

^ From the same fools that hyped the Schiit Vali, those anal mofos seems to know what they are talkin' about. :)

 

edit: mo' fun stuff. ;)

What model is this magic fostex iem? For $100 it might be worth playing with. How would you compare it to UERMs, Mike?

 

TE-05.  I think the suggested retail will be $129 if I heard right.  I would need more time to AB before diving down that rabbit hole.  It's supremely clean, clear and refined sounding.  No noticeable grain, artifacts or other wierdness that would otherwise scream out for attention.  It's neutral without being overly warmed and veiled, nor bright and analytical.  I think it would lose out on resolution, SS, imaging, top/bottom extension but win on overall tonal signature and balance, perhaps clarity, coherency and refinement.  Take that with a grain of salt until a real production unit shows up that I can compare directly over time.
