are in some ways my favorite ZERO AUDIO masterpiece.   The Tenores are smooth as silk

the Doppios are thick with detail and neutrality, and the SINGULOS the most fun of all....

ask then to your dance!!!!

 

 

I have not doubt drbluenewmexico. The ZA line doesn't seem to let us down at all,  but I've just never been interested in a single BA. Plus, the FX650 may still be calling my name. lol

Singolos are the most fun of all ZAphones indeed after a week of intense burn in they really shine, I rarely use TE-05 and IM70 now because of Singolos.

Don't wanna get ahead of myself, but the Ostry KC06As are currently my top pick out of my collection when it comes to bass. The mids are delicious, too. Something seemed a tad strange in the treble region, and I couldn't put my finger on it. My brain seems to have adjusted to whatever weirdness I initially detected, which may very well be down to being used to a different sound signature.

Oh, you guys who like scores with great bass, get yourselves the Bourne Identity soundtrack. Sublime.

I don't want to go to sleep.

That's definitely reassuring- I discounted the TE-05 for lack of bass, passed up the Tenore for these as well; was hoping for some bass authority from a BA for EDM...anyway, drbluenewmexico had a lot of good things to say and at 89 bucks these Singolos are simply too intriguing to pass up. Any improvement on the KC06A sound sig would be awesome, it is practically ideal for me. Tenso will probably take a couple of weeks but I'll do some impressions when I get them.

How are singolos vs GR07 or RE400?

Right around the high hat frequency for me. It stands out too much. Draws my attention way too much. It will cause certain sounds to appear more in your face than I believe they were intended to be.
After a while of brain adjustment it isn't as off sounding, but still very present.

It can be confusing because you might think, "oh the detail on that. I've never heard 'X' so clearly." Then you begin to realize that it is simply standing out where it shouldn't be. Also it lacks some extension in the highs so things went resonate quite as naturally. That might also be the "off" sounding .

Isn't the bass exciting? Slams, extends deep and really gets you moving.

@doctorjazz

 

your tunes were riveting, I seriously enjoyed listening to the latest ones you posted with my ckr9s.

 

The bass lines were incredible, vocals amazing, and the sound positioning beautiful.

 

Let me give you guys (including doctor) something to listen to, but it has to be with the best gear. The sound positioning and separation of this song is amazing, even if the separation is minimal, it is actually noticible and intimate.

Just got this couple from post office

It seems to me that there's a bit of sucking out in the treble somewhere and then a spike at the hi-hats you're mentioning. I could be - and am likely - wrong, but that's what it seems like to me. It doesn't create hyper-detail-I've-never-heard-before, though. I think between my UM3X and my Mikros, I've heard as much detail as I'm gonna get, at least at this range of expenditure. It doesn't, at least, highlight sibilance, and that's something I can't handle. A bit of emphasis on the higher treble regions doesn't get to me, but where the "s" happens can be a deal breaker for me. And yeah, the extension isn't brilliant, but I don't find myself overly concerned about treble unless there's too much of it and not enough of everything else.

The bass is ridiculously sexy. Vocals are lovely, especially female. Treble doesn't bother me. I'm certainly not unhappy with the purchase. My one irritation is these damn cables, I've never had cables so prone to tangling. No, I haven't owned cable monstrosities like the MH1, so my experience is limited, but this cable irritates me. Not deal breaker irritates, but irritates nonetheless.

I remember somewhere there being a bit of a silly argument over whether the KC06s are made of metal or plastic. The Ish-stirring was by someone who didn't even have the Ostrys, if I recall correctly. Anyway, If this is plastic, it's doing a damned fine job of presenting like metal. Cold to the touch, metal clinky sound when tapped. If it walks like a duck and it talks like a duck, it must be.... Plastic? Lol.
