Yeah it's for the Carbo Tenore, not the Basso.

I guess I could ask him about the DX210 as well.

Reason I'm more interested in the microdriver DX200 though as it will be much more lively and thus more suited for listening my Trance mixes.

I will be astonished if it turns out to be an upgrade to my Yamaha EPH100. redface.gif

Received a reply from White Rabbit Japan today about the Zero Audio IEMs:

Dear Andrei,

Thank you very much for your request. Please read this email carefully.

We can provide your requested item(s) for the following price:

=REQUESTED ITEM(S)=
-qty 1 [#4740] Carbo Tenore ZH-DX200-CT earphones by Zero Audio : US$66.80
http://whiterabbitexpress.com/zh-dx200-ct/

*This price includes the product cost, local tax, inbound shipping, all transaction charges related to payment and our handling fee. If the item was sold-out at the shop you provided, we may have found it elsewhere for a different price.

Sometimes an item can become sold out, so its usually best to order quickly to ensure availability.

=SHIPPING=
We bill actual shipping charges - we don't mark-up the shipping costs to make a profit. Since we don't have your requested item(s) in hand, we are unable to determine the exact shipping cost. Once your request item(s) arrive at our office, we'll send a second payment request for the shipping charges. You can estimate your shipping charges using the rate schedules below (note: not all shipping methods are available for all items or all countries):

EMS: http://www.post.japanpost.jp/english/fee/intel/ems.html
Airmail (Printed Matter/Small Packet): http://www.post.japanpost.jp/english/fee/intel/airmail.html
Parcel Post (SEA/AIR/SAL): http://www.post.japanpost.jp/english/fee/intel/parcel.html

 

Seems like a good price, although I wonder about the Customs tax. Maybe its possible for them to mark the item down as gift.

Hi geko95gek, I'm also looking out for the Carbo Basso. Will be looking out for your update and thanks for taking the time and initiative for the benefit of the community.

They were mostly decent for me once I switched to the Sennheiser pleathers. I could wear them without any discomfort for 2-3 hours.

There is a little "edit" button above the item price when you pay for your shipping. wink.gif

Good find! They are on ebay.ca as well (about $73 CDN shipped):

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Zero-Audio-ZH-DX210-CB-Stereo-Inner-Ear-Headphones-/140967843224?pt=US_Headphones&hash=item20d2569598

 

The only problem is that the shipment could take a painfully long time (ie 3 weeks).

 

They are on amazon.jp for approx $45. It would probably be about $20 to ship them via tenso, for a total of $65. The big difference is that they would get here withing 8 days for sure.

Yeah the eBay prices put me off since they're quite high, but I then run the risk of customs fees from Tenso and I'm not sure if it's worth it.

Right - you guys get nailed in the UK don't you. I've ordered two items from amazon.jp/tenso which were both in the $160-$180 CDN range, and never got nailed with customs fees to Canada. I think that going over $200 in though might result in extra fees.

Bit more expensive than what my Japanese eBay seller friend said though.

 

I might end up going for it at this rate, at least there wont be any trouble with customs lol

 

Also, Carbo Tenore seem to be slightly more expensive from buyfromjapan seller than Carbo Basso... I wonder why?

I don't know if anyone posted this yet, but I read on some post that the Carbo Tenore has more of a treble boost and the Carbo Basso has more of a bass boost, which are the main differences between the 200 and 210. FYI

that's a great seller. not cheapest prices, but offers full warranty

So dsnuts and danny, I'm looking forward to your impressions of the Basso's now that more burn in has been achieved!

 

Who else has ordered these puppies? My ears get quite hot in the summer, so I'm liking the idea of using my CKS1000 and these Carbo Basso iems more than my headphones during the summer. As far as headphones go, my ksc75's (on headband) are quite light on the ears, and I don't care if I get sweat on them, and they sound great, so they do a good job. But, I think that I'll also get the Koss Sportapro's (same driver as portapro's) for $30 and do these mods on them which I found in this headfi post - will sound awesome I am sure! And again, I won't care about abusing them in the heat.
