If someone could point me to the right direction...:o I'd be grateful.

 

Just so you know vlenbo, I'm appreciating your re700 enthusiasm. I'm pretty sure that I would love them. So even though it might not be the right timing for me to jump on them right now, please know that you are making me wish it was!

I'm starting to think you guys are a bunch of marketing dudes... i've caved and ordered a pair of the xiaomi pistons :D started my foray with the 8320, bought the sennheiser hd439 recently, and wanted a good pair for on the go, and you guys sold me on the pistons! can't wait till they get here..

There's also a Japanese page/source I can't find handy to link to ATM.  But I did have this one handy - it's been in my RSS links for quite a while!

 

Oh thanks for the link! That's really interesting, I wonder if Zero Audio is utilizing anything similar to FAD's BAM design in the Heaven series.

I'm glad to hear that, I did not believe I was doing that good of a job, lol. I'm sure all of you guys would enjoy this sig, though I think eric already knows the sound, thanks to those godly on1s. :wink: 

 

It's awesome to hear that from you, thanks for letting me know! Take your time and enjoy other headphones before exploring this one later on, hopefully other headfiers can jump on these phones soon. 

 

@doctorjazz 


I did not enjoy that song as it has been overused in the radio station. Most importantly, it's because it's pretty rhythmical and pretty much intriguing to listen to. If I hear that song again, I know that my restrictions against hearing that song will break! Good choice nonetheless, and that video is hilarious!

 

P.S. Glad you liked that song, that comparison was made to a headfier that pm'd me about the im-02s. I just copy pasted those eq-5s here. I'll do more comparisons of those bas and the sony hybrids along them.

Yes, i listen to all three.  Tenores carved out a 60$ niche for supreme vocal smoothness and treble clarity with decent bass.  one of my favorites.  the Bassos have, obviously from the name, much more

bass gusto and sub bass presence and more power and thickness of sound overall. less detail and treble is somewhat covered by the low end, but really really fun for EDM and bass heavy synth/ambient music.

both of these Zero Audio phones are well made and well tuned for their purpose and priced way below their value.  both fit great and people wear them all they as earplugs when not listening to music!!

Basso is a little more expensive than Tenore. and both need 100s of hours of burn in to sound ideal because of carbon nano construction.

Pistons are more of a jack of all trades phone, a super bargain at 20$  great for EDM but carry voices very well and have remarkable sparkling treble upper end.  less detailed than the Tenores but plenty of bass like the Bassos.

if i had to buy only one of the three, i would get the Tenores because the voices and midrange there is almost perfect and makes me smile.  The bassos stir my soul and make me dance but sound a bit artificial to me.

The pistons are a really great bargain find but don't achieve perfection in any frequency, just really do good overall.  i just bought two friends Pistons because they didn't have any high end phones and these are

a remarkable introduction to whats possible out of a phone or computer audio. Next up, reviews of the new Singulos from Zero Audio a new BA design and technology at 155$ and the Doppios, a double BA new design

that some (including our remarkably eared DSnauts) have called the most detailed and amazing ism they have enjoyed recently and a true reference monster iem.

Many good choices, all worthy phones, but a different price points and different talents.

Hm, I wonder when Zero Audio will take its amazing dynamics and it's awesome balanced armatures and create a supernova hybrid. One can dream, no?

That would be nice, but they are little company.

I have feeling that Audio Technica this year will release it's first hybrids.

Hey has anyone that has the DUNU DN1000 tried them with the RadioShack auvio tips yet???

 

 

Anywho i was working out with these DN1Ks on and was OK.... these things are very 3D in its presentation and that you can literally hear their BA tweeters doing their thang or what nots in their instrument separation/ layering, etc etc BUT i was hmmm something sounds kinda off. 

 

With the stock turbine tips everything was wayyy too textbook accurate, and combined with a somewhat dry and diffused sound these DN1Ks were literally putting me to sleep during the workout. LMAO I was like man these things are not only missing that lushness and visceral texture of the gr07 BEs but also where is that PRaT!!!??? Everything just sounded so mechanical and flying at me from all directions but yet despite all those interesting micro details i wasn't really connected with the music. My head wasn't bobbing nor were my toes tapping, so i was hmmm that is interesting. I figured that these turbine stock tips weren't really doing it for me sonically and remembered that i said something about tip rolling them with some RadioShack auvio tips last night, lo and behold these DN1Ks sounds MUCH more musical with those tips. Musical as in the overall sound is tighter/ more cohesive with better bass punch and speed hence PRaT is greatly increased as the result. These DN1Ks are finally starting to sing with the auvio tips!!! :basshead:

 

I noticed that the stock turbine tips with the longest red rings (most neutral sounding combo) there is noticeably more treble extension hence slight sibilance as well, but with the shortest silver rings not only is the bass quality/ quantity increased but the treble is more tamed. In essence the ring implementation of these DN1Ks has an inverse effect as compared to what shorter barrel tips did for the KEF M200s.  So for folks that have these DN1Ks and you have some auvio tips around GO TRY THEM!!! I am currently using the silver rings combo with the blue auvio tips and i get as much treble extension as those longest red rings as well as better bass quantity/ quality also.

 

Hope i ain't just trippin'... :beyersmile:

They're definitely pretty tip-dependent. I was slightly underwhelmed while using the spiral tips, but when I switched to the clear ones and finally got some sub-bass kick I was won over.

Oh man you'll get a nice lil' surprise with these auvio tips cuz they are just as wide bore as the spiral turbine tips but seems to add some great quality bass depth and punch as well. :basshead:

 

The clear stock tips has a more narrow bore and they didn't seal at all for me sadly so those were a no go.

 

And oh man are these easy to drive, sounds crazy loud already with not much power and has a VERY non fatiguing sound even when the volume is cranked up a bit. NICE!!!

 

Sadly isolation seems kinda sub par though. : (

 

But not too bad when the music is on.

I won't, as those clowns only ship inside the US. I've wanted to buy those tips so often.

 

Yeah, the one drawback to the clear tips is the shallow insertion and fragile seal. I'd like to be able to push them in a bit deeper.

^ DATS WHAT HE SAID!!! :veryevil: 

 

Anywho, the resolution/ HD_ness of these DN1Ks is getting almost to the level of the ASG 2s with these auvio tips. Not quite at the same level but is a step closer, overall better clarity than the M200s, but the M200s have a fuller more smooth overall sound though.....

 

edit: man i wish they still sell the variety pack of these auvio tips cuz they seem to only sell one pack sizes in set of 3s. : (
