I absolutely loved the FX700, except for one thing ----> The MIDS WERE TOO FREAKIN' RECESSED!! If they have fixed that I'm so in!!!


That and also less bass to be more balance overall. I hope it's not vented for more isolation.

like a monstrously successful crosss between the Tenores and the Bassios.

wonderful layering of instrument and tones bass tremendous partially because of

form factor and deep ear canal insertion, midrange soaring, treble high and sparkling

but not sibilant.....obviously in need of extensive burn in being carbon nano based,

some bass smearing and tones not right....but potential is IMMENSE.  they just

won some kind of award in Japan, but i can't read the japanese award sticker, VGP awards..

 

i can't wait to compare them next week to the rest of the Zero Audio line up, the

500s, Tenores, Bassos, and Doppios!  i know its cheating, but I'm going to leave these

BX510s in my ears for a few more songs before i jack em in to the burn in iPod...

 

 

yeeaaah, they are BA drivers...

Besides that, it's not disconcerting at all to hear the great things about the midrange and treble! You got a gem in your hands. :)

the bass is good on the bx510s out of the box, but moderately smeared into the midrange. even so the impact on drums and synths is

an IMPACT not just a bass sound.  I'm listening to them through a dragonfly dac and ray samuels sr=71, and they are responding well

to the amp power boost. its really like they merged the sound of the Tenorios and Bassos in an amazing way. they make me see music

synthesis like, which out of the box and their price is astounding.....more burn in still quite necessary as decay on the instruments is a bit

flat....

Wow, that's quite a bit of bass there, that's pretty good for a single armature! Dsnuts may be right about bass levels! Though..I don't know yet.

 

Impact all the way man, I hear the same thing on the im02s. :etysmile:


Hearing that it's a mix of tenores and bassos makes me feel quite happy. I may get these as a budget phone then! Thanks Dr.blue

Very good impressions on the AX35 through the first hour. I normally can't stand single BA sets, and the R-50 was way too harsh and shrill for me. This is my favorite in-ear with a BA unit to date.

 

I liked the clarity of the A161P/Somic MH407, but single BA's just don't have enough bass for me. The AX35 slaughters the Hisoundaudio BA-100 too.

 

As far as being labeled neutral, it isn't. The main review of the AX35 here on Head-Fi mentions "huge" bass. I disagree with that. It is nicely lifted, but far from being powerful. The Piston has more impact. The lift is just the right amount that I don't need to add any extra boost of my own, which is perfect.

 

The signature is a slight V. I would have preferred actual neutral, but the slight V works. Vocals are clear and present. Imaging is spot on. They scale with better recordings, and point out most of the flaws in crappier ones. Some rock music can get slightly shrill on distorted guitar parts, but I expect this to improve a little with burn in or the right tips.

 

They seem to work best using triple flanges and shoving them deep into your skull, a la Monster Gratitude style. The stock silicone is meh, and the stock foam is ok, but it dampens brightness, so treble lovers might not be into them. Going to try hybrids and bi flanges later.

 

A comparison between these and the Inearpeace or the Dunu-1k would be nice. If they are on par withe the IEP, at $68, they make the IEP irrelevant at twice the cost. Initial assessment... they are worth up to twice the cost... so far.

after a few hours of playing, the BX510 Carbon Singulos are becoming smoother, better bass.  most amazing though is their SPEED on highly rhythmic music\

they drive the music and have peaks and crescendos that feel like a live concert. the soundstage is amazing and the music flows through the front of your head

like a wave...the reverb echoes through your whole head...voices come at you from the top and center of a stage....i might not get much sleep tonight.....

the merging of Tenore and Basso sound signatures in these is uncanny....
