My order for PR401 was canceled and refunded, cause they have run out of stock. Let see if the GR07 will go through.

ZERO AUDIO Carbo Basso DX210 Review

 

 

I won't cover anything else aside from the sound because I believe Ds has that covered in his previous review of the Carbo Basso.

This is my impression straight out of the box and changed the tip with Meelec double flange tips.

 

Source: Ipod Touch 5Gen

Amp: FiiO E11 (EQ: 0; Gain: 1)

 

BASS

One word: WOW! This pair has the most authoritative bass I've ever heard in an IEM. Very clean, goes really deep and just right in between Punchy and Boomy bass. To me it's just perfect... I now hear a lot of micro details in the lower frequencies (details that I didn't really notice with the XBA 3). This reminds me of the FX3X bass but more refined and detailed. Listening to Megadeth's Kill the King and this can really handle with heavy metal speed. Not as fast as the XBA 3 but the timbre and decay is so much more authentic. Double bass kicks sounded so good, exactly how you hear it on a live concert!

 

MIDS

Midrange is so smooth and just about right... not as forward as the XBA 3 but is never lacking and it doesn't disappoint. It doesn't leave you wanting for more because it's there. But for those who love vocals tho, especially female vocals; this may not be the right IEM for you. Mids are not forward enough to highlight female vocals. These phones are not for those who focus on a particular component in a song: may it be guitars, drums, or vocals; this IEM is for those who listen to a song as a whole and have fun with the entire presentation.

 

HIGHS

Buttery smooth... think about MH1c with further refinement/tuning. I just love how this pair NEVER reach sibilance. I've thrown every pitchy song in my collection and not once did this pair sounded sibilant. If you have songs by pitchy female artists such as Taylor Swift or Avril Lavigne, this IEM is the solution. I turned up the volume all the way to the top (w/o amp) and their voices didn't go overboard! I believe I can listen to the Carbo Basso all night long and I'd never feel fatigued. It doesn't have the detailed precision of the XBA 3, but on the other hand: it doesn't have the artificial peaky sound either. Just a smooth and refined highs with enough detail to produce a fun yet non-strident music.

 

DETAILS

While midrange and treble where not spectacular (like CKN70), the details in the bass department will more than make up for it. This is not an analytical IEM and should never be evaluated as one. As a fun IEM, this delivers more than what's expected. Compared to the XBA 3, the Sony excels in the high frequencies but the DX210 owns the XBA 3 in the lower frequencies.

 

I'm loving the DX210... This is not a neutral/analytical IEM but a fun and well balanced BASS IEM. It will not replace my XBA 3 but it will definitely get heaps of ear-time because it's just so much fun to listen to. You can really enjoy each and every song in your playlist. That amazing bass even transforms classic acts such as England Dan and John Ford Coley and make their songs sound like they've just been recorded in the recent years. As a result, those oldies don't sound so out of place when they play right after a modern pop song. For $42, I'd say the Zero Audio Carbo Basso DX210 is worth MORE than what I paid for. L3000.gif

 

My apologies for not providing more details as I am still a novice at this... but I do know when a pair of cans sound good/bad. A big thanks to Dsnuts for this discovery, it is an awesome IEM for the price indeed!

Hmmmm.


In your opinion (or anyone else's for that matter), my already possessing fxz200, ckn70 and xb90ex, should i still get THIS (dx210)??

Initial impression (after about 10 hours of use) is pretty good. Bass is a little bloated to my taste and I do understand what everybody means with the treble being hot, I love my Grado's but damn these Audio-Technica is a bit too much. I usually don't care much for burn in but reading about the HUGE amount of time people are giving these I'm willing to give them more time. 

OK, confession time:

1. I now believe in burn in. No question that the sound of these has changed a lot after about 150 hours of burn in. No more bass bloat or piercing highs. Just wonderful music.

2. This is the best pair of IEM's I've ever heard.

Thanks to all of you that recommended/found thesebeerchug.gif.

 

This really is a great thread!
