The discovery thread.! NEW Zero Audio Singolos! pg1644..Doppios! pg1197 - Page 1223

post #18331 of 25590

   Damn, this hype train is going fast...and I feel lucky to have gotten on. I just wish I bought the old ones with them for the comparison...I still have no more money...

 

   Ah well, I think I'mma wait for next winter. Who knows, my parents might actually give me a proper budget for me birthday. $100 could get me a lot of earphones for playing around with...Moxpads, Havi B3, old Pistons...I'm totally confused right now. I just wish I had the guts cash to enter the $100+ price range. Then again, I need a portable amp, especially with multiple outputs (the perfect comparison tool).

The Heaven IV, V, and VI have some passionate supporters here, and have been on my radar for a while, along with Heir and some others you might consider lower-high tier.. Sennheiser is able to get mucho bass from a single dynamic driver in their upper end iems, from what I read (haven't heard them). I find Ety 4ps, with good seal, had enough bass, though it isn't enough for many.
Lots on the thread since yesterday, New Zero Audio and Fostex sound interesting. Was just listening to the Tenore, those are nice 4 the price. Night in Manhatten was fun, though it at me back enough to buy a low-end of the higher tier phone (tix parking, dinner for 3...Jazz Standard is a beautiful club, for those who might be in the area. Great food, too, Southern BBQ from Blue Smoke, their restaurant upstairs. Great ribs, sides, and a smoked veggie burger, that had to be the best veggie burger I've ever had!

I posted the seller link of who I got my Piston 2.0 off of. It comes with a tracking number, and they sell the 2.0, and not the original version.

News to me.

I personally think the "enough bass" issue is often (not always) a matter of it being a match for the rest of the tuning. I like both a good amount of bass and neutral bass. It just needs to work with what the rest of the sound offers.

The Heavens V, at least, has one of my favorite low ends as of late, full, not overbearing while still clearly up in dBs, well detailed (but not crazy like the ER-4S), musical and organic (where you don't even think "this is BA bass" or "this is DD bass"). That last one is surprisingly important to me. That was one of my complaints with say the 1Plus2, the low end while technically amazing, being incredibly tight and detailed and fast and well balanced was just almost unnaturally dry and devoid of life for me. They probably tuned that in a way to match the character of the BAs putting up the mids and highs. The Senn IE800 bass was a bit dry for me too but that thing was as sub bass a beast as I had heard.

Heaven IV can be had for around 140$:

Absolutely amazing for the price.

Gonna start fishing around for some more IEMs, see what I can find in the £200 price range that might meet what I want in a pair of IEMs (Comfortable / preferably light, good build quality, potent bass that doesn't ruin the mids, mids and highs that are both on the next level compared to the Zero Audio Carbo Basso). I may not be able to find anything but I can only search!

I sent an email too with no reply. Well, I'm not going to lose my mind over $26, but PayPal will reimburse anyway. I'm giving them one more week. I don't need them.

The thing I've noticed about the OM Audio is the sustain times. Listening to Yes - Roundabout, and the pluck of the strings, the note just goes on and on, even after another string has been plucked. Just a treat to hear.

I'm not particularly worried that my order won't show up, I'm just very curious about where it is:)

i got a tracking number with mine. it's the damn wait times that's killing me. I've got the Piston 2.0 coming from Singapore, the DUNU DN-1000 coming from China, and the AT-IM70 coming from Japan, and all are taking FOREVER to show up. To be honest, all of them are at Customs at this moment.

I'll post this one more time for those of you thinking about picking up the Piston 2.0

 

This seller provides a tracking number, ships quickly, and is selling the gold 2.0 version with beryllium alloy driver. 

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/171194852810

 

plus they have a 100% rating. 

post #18344 of 25590

Interesting. I ran into these, and the measured really good, with solid bass measurements for a dual BA. 

 

DENON AH-C400

 

I wonder how good these really are? This is the first time I've heard of these.
