i spent 20 minutes on the phone with the owner of mapleshade today, he has a long history of recording and headphone use.He told me the differences between the stock and cryo'd zeros is not night and day, but the sound is 'much better' then stock,
and yes, he even mentioned that the zeros held their own against his $2000 staxs ,
he has built a business/life around recording and hearing the differences.
i know when im presented with internet 'reasoning' and a phone conversation with a long time well respected recording engineer,
which information/whos ears i trust.
my guess is, if you really want something special, for $100, get the cryo'd zeros.... thats what im going to do.......
No one's reasoning here...we are trying to speculate what exactly is meant by the term used to describe Mapleshade's IEMs. Keep in mind that a lot of people have a background in science/engineering here as well, so its not like these hypotheses are coming from laymen. It would have been a lot clearer if the process was described somewhere by the person conducting it to enlighten the buyer.
Anyways, did the owner explain the process to you during the phone call?
