Actually all 4 Zero Audio products out of Japan are getting some rave reviews on Amazon Japan.. One thing I know about the Japanese Public is they are somewhat demanding when it comes to audio stuff and these Carbo Bassos got 5 out of 5 from 5 owners. That certainly is a good sign.. This is one earphone I have had my eye on for a while. I almost bought these with my CKS1000 and almost with my order of the CKN70s.

 

But I have always had them in the back of my mind. Always wanted to try them..They cost $45 bux and a bit more for shipping out of Japan. Certainly a great price. But only if they meet expectations. We will see.

Good that you are being careful with the hype. But,I read those translated reviews (well not yet, but I'm gonna), and you KNOW that they are going to rock! So may the hype begin!

 

Hold on a moment! Sorry - I got ahead of myself. I must see the graph before I get too excited about these. SHOW ME THE GRAPH!

 

Lol.

After I get the WS99s I'm going to get either the AD900X, ES700, or JVCHAZ2000 (something like that. Whatever the new JVC is that's coming out in MAY. I'm thinking AD900X. I've never owned an open headphone before. I figure I'll already have supra-aural headphones, over ear, and IEMsso I should get those. But these JVCs are mighty tempting.

Has anyone bought this ele DAC + amplifier? http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-ELE-EL-D02-PCM2704-USB-DAC-TDA1308-Headphone-amplifier-Volume-Control-/250886317805?pt=Vintage_Electronics_R2&hash=item3a69fd66ed

 

The ele DAC is only 3,40 cheaper so it might be more interesting to buy this to have the amplifier going with it. Nice thing is, it has both line-out and amplified headphone out.

i am not sure which format supports 192 kHz/24-bit audio stream

 

It seems that flac and other lossless codecs supports it

 

 

You can found audio streams to test here

I definitely recommend AD900X over ES700. ES700 is practically unusable without WS55 pads anyway, and AD900X is very comfortable and sounds better.

You might need to use a bass boost to get the most out of it, as with most open headphones.

Why pay 20$ for the 16/44 DAC when Hifimediy is 24/192 for 42$ and is powerful enough to power HE-400?

Just ask yourself, how good that additional amplifier can be for 3.40$ ? It can only drive SQ down.

its the same amp thats used in the hifiman hm101 http://www.crutchfield.com/S-IvDT93Ry3Sl/p_818HM101/HiFiMAN-HM-101.html#details-tab

 

so its not the best but its not the worst...wouldnt expect miracles out of it but for under a 5 buck increase in price...why not?

 

SQ down compared to what?  

 

if they fixed the channels being reversed in the el dac 2, have a decent amp for under 5 bucks increase... it's a pretty good budget on the go package to use.  dac/amp in a small package like that to use with your laptop seems pretty tempting; especially if you get it for 18 bucks if they accept the offer.
