• Will have an anodized aluminum enclosure (not much bigger or heavier than ZO2)
• Have an OLED screen
• Over 1,000 different contours to choose from --> 32 levels for low frequencies (like ZO2) + 32 levels for high frequencies
• No high/low gain modes -- volume can be adjusted continuously from mute to max (even with a line-level input!)
• Headroom & output power will be MUCH higher
• NOISE-FREE! ;-)

 

:DDDD

Sounds like too good to be true, possibly I could start using the SoundBlaster ZxR as my source with this new ZO as with my current ZO2.1 that seems to work best with Q40 doesn't pair nicely with that soundcard but sounds fantastic with Realtek onboard (the latest ALC1150). With ZxR the balance is overly warm and smooth while with the Realtek ALC1150 it sounds perfectly balanced, nice n crispy without lacking highs presence.

 

Wonder what pricing will be like, sounds like it will MINIMUM be like $149 but even that seems like a stretch.

That was my only real complaint before.

Wow, that's something to look forward to! :D

Really looking forward to this... I hope that they didn't spend extra money on the OLED screen in lieu of spending extra $ improving the amp section... But knowing them, I bet not! Thanks zo team, looking forward to your announcement!

Would be cool to get some graphs regarding how the treble contour looks like.

Good find :p Would never have thought to look there. Would be cool to hear ATH-WS99 + ZO3, seems like a good combo for bassheads since WS99 is unusually forward in the mids for quite generous boosted bass headphone.

You want some beta testers, you know where to look.....................

Seems it would going to work well with iem because it has low/high gain feature. Looking forward to it..

Nono, even if I have to buy it for myself it will be like a gift. :D 

I've been thinking though about the treble adjustment, might be good if it was possible to also decrease it, some headphones especially Ultrasone PRO900 would benefit by a decrease.

According to the graphs in that document it looks like the treble can only be increased, not decreased.
