The discovery thread.! NEW sfwalcer's earphone comparo PG 1727. DannyBai multi phone impressions... - Page 838

post #12556 of 26435

thanks, d marcO  yah, i have ME6L double flange hybrid tips on them now that helped too. i havent tried comply tips yet or the entymotic type 3x cone tips

they are so wide at the nozzle that the nozzle will only do shallow penetration of the ear canal, so im wondering if a long tip that funnels into the ear canal

would be interesting... the TENORES slip in deep and snug, and have a little better soundstage because of it, the seal is much better. but the sq on the bassos

is astounding....

of course im anxious to hear the now OFFICIAL INSANE DSNUTS TM  X!  amazon just matched groupon offer and the price of those is below 250.00$

Nice read, Nuts. Zero seems to be doing plenty of things right and amassing fans very quickly. Would have gotten the Bassos had I not already have the HF-300s.

Now, I await the Doppios before taking the dive.

Based in nut's last post, I'd say Tenores for their imaging and soundstage.

The BX500s got the best imagery and bit thicker sound over the Tenors. Not to mention will have the fastest speed out of all of the Zero Audios. I am listening to these with my Meridian Explorer 2stepdance combo..Yup these will do very excellent. Sounds fantastic for Jazz as well. I am imagining this sound with an extra ba for the low subs and these will be about as good as it will get really.

 

Tenors are excellent for classical as well..The reason why I believe them KEF M200s are gonna sound great is because one of the drivers they are using out of the 2 is actually seems to be a 5.5mm Micro HD driver..Micro HD drivers are as close to a Balanced armature in detail and imagery for a dynamic driver as it gets.

 

I did notice all these Zero Audios are really tip dependent. The tips I was using initially on the Tenors didn't go well with them but they sound very nice with smaller bore tips MH1C tips.

yeah, Doppios should really be great if they manage to get a good sub-base response (not much in quality, just the quality, extention and texture).

 

Dsnuts are those bx500 vented? AFAIK some manufacturers use vents in their single BA iems to increase bass response...

Nope it is all closed like the other Zero Audios. It is the tuning these guys are getting right. The stage on these earphones are solid to excellent for all being closed in ears. The housing and materials used also seem to have an effect on their sound. All of the Zero Audios have solid detail..

Those look amazing! Wonder how much they'll be here in the UK and when they'll be available. I find myself preferring IEMs over full size headphones for comfort and isolation reasons. I've had headphones before and they end up being too heavy or uncomfortable and if I wanted the best sound I'd have to buy open headphones, which isn't suitable for sharing a room with someone, so I think I'll stick with IEMs

As of now I can only find the Headphone models in us/uk amazon. I'd suggest Tenso if you want to try them out.

Edit: The FC models are also very good. A friend bought a few pair and I had a quick listen. Difference between the HF and FC are minimal, clarity and sub bass are the only differences between them.

KEF M200, Onkyo HF300 or T Peos H200... Decisions, decisions...
post #12570 of 26435
Are the KEF M200s any better than the GR07 BEs?
