Zero Audio Singolo price dropped to 8833 yen on Amazon.jp

post #23223 of 25977

really great buy at that price.  Recommended. like the best of the Tenore and Basso combined into a wide soundstage

with great dynamics and texture.

don't give up  the DOPPIOS are worth the effort to get them

pay even a little more to get them on ebay...they are a treasure...

nothing quite like them.  you may not need any more headphones

but these are one of a kind......reference level, musical, detailed

and emotionally involving.  and a bargain for what they achieve...

stay focused and hungry for the quest...

CDjapan/CoolJapanNow does special request ordering. They mark as gift and you can still get points to use and it is in English. Should be pretty low hassle and their prices are usually quite good too. Paypal payment as well.

Interesting. I've been eyeing the Tenores for quite a while now, but now I'm tempted to consider the Singolo ;-)

 

From kakaku.com:

* CARBO TENORE ZH-DX200-CT   - ¥3,810 ($37.5 USD)

* CARBO BASSO ZH-DX210-CB    - ¥3,810 ($37.5 USD)

* CARBO SINGOLO ZH-BX510-CS - ¥8,833 ($87 USD)

 

In other words, buying a pair of Tenore AND Basso ($75) would still be cheaper than getting a Singolo. Would you say that the Singolo really justifies the higher price?

I believe it, and I believe they're a bargain, but it's possible to "bargain" so well, with so many money saving deals, that you go broke (I'm always telling my wife, "look how much money I'm saving!"). Still, would have bought them, couldn't get Tenso or BuySmartJapan, both of which I've used in the past, to cooperate. Maybe I'll give CDJapan a try tonight, after I finish work and a dentist appointment (I'm sure I'll want to get myself something after seeing the dentist)

ha..after seeing the dentist you deserve ANYTHING YOU WANT!...AFTER my 20 year medical check up and being seen by

8 specialists inpatient for ten days for double pneumonia and more,  i spent all my budget on gear, got those Doppios

some PSB mu1s, and have on1s in my radar......who needs to eat when you have such lovely music in your head and the dentist

out of your mouth?  as for the wife factor:  "anything for the research projects" is my manta....the audio quest is a mission from

the higher universe......(no relationship between these comments and reality is claimed here of course.....)you can always claim temporary or permeant audio insanity....

good deals for sure on the Tenore and Bassos, which were 60$ when i got each of them.  but you can't listen to both of them at the same time.

if you want silky vocals and midrange, Tenores in your ears, if you want thickness and bass texture Bassos.  if you want both at the same time

SINGULOS are worth the extra money.......choices choices..  of course the Doppios are on another level completely, and are a monster

reference phone that is really unique....enjoy, all of those Zero audio products are super well tuned and worth every penny.....and sound good out of computer.  the Doppios actually sound better without an amp (thanks to DS for pointing that out...because of 12 ohm load) but still improve with good dac like the DRAGONFLY thats scaled power wise.......they make me hallucinate music with synthesis....true high end audio magic....Tenores would be my choice if on a budget and only getting one zero phone, quite impressive...but i suggest being ocd and getting all of them...ha....go Zero Audio!!!!!

Hmmmm, those PSB's have been on my radar a while as well, what do you think of them? I like the idea of earning "whatever I want" after the dental work... Audeze LCD-X, come to papa!
post #23232 of 25977

some new discoveries... try these tracks!

 

post #23233 of 25977
I haven't mentioned it since it's so expensive but the B&W P7's are spectacular from build to the sound.
post #23234 of 25977
The B&W 3s and 5s get a lot of good press, don't see much about the 7s, sure they are very nice. Another high end speaker company showing they can do it in the headphone world as well, nice.

i got to hear the PSB mu1 and mu2 at a local high end store.  the 2s are noise canceling and bigger and heavier, Although they had cheap amps connected  they were wonderful and way better than the other denon high end headphones on display. very balanced slightly bass emphasis.

the 1s and 2s sound the same, so if you don't need noise canceling for traveling, save 100$ and get the lighter 1s.  PM me your e mail address and i will send you a link for a possible sale still on as

well as a killer major review of many leading headphones at the 300 range which chose these as the best based on ten or more reviewers.  

The Audeze I'm sure are summit hi fi monsters, but ten times the price......PSB has a lot really interesting engineering in these phones also, and won many awards for that....

but i did love the sound signature.....of course you could do the ultimate music experience like a read about in last sundays NYT and do a rock n roll cruise with 22 bands and three stages for 4 days in the tropics, or hi fi brain implants.......
