Noontec Zoro - Page 9

post #121 of 152
The reviews I have read suggest build quality is about the same but they have more comfortable pads and they sound more refined. cnet has a review on the HD model I believe.

Oh, that's bad! (the Solo pads not suiting the Zoro) I was actually looking forward to having a better fit with alternate earpads ...mmm...  Life!. Thanks for the update Hal.

one day on my way home, i was talked into getting a pair of Zoro headphones by a salesperson.

 

indeed after i tried it out, its bass is refined and not dry. for a headset going for less than a hundred bucks, it is a real bargain.

@sofastreamer As suspected I was sent a regular Zoro! frown.gif Will be sending these back, but this seems to be the real deal!

Are those the regular Zoro headphones?

i wonder how much has changed, i read the cnet review as well, it said the sound was more refined, comfortable and better isolation

 

i wonder how thats possible! that makes me even more hopeful for future noontec products.

 

i was gonna get the m-80s( when it comes with the cliq fold hinges) eventually after the zoros but if noontec already upgraded in a year already, i might have to wait a bit longer! their next headphone might surpass the m-80s!! (yea, right, but still)

i doubt that it can surpass m-80 for it is only going for fifty something in US dollars in China, where it is genuinely given birth.

 

though i have got to admit its Performance/Cost is undeniably high.

$55 for the HDs, $47 for the regular Zoros on Woot, $5 for shipping regardless of number of pairs: http://tech.woot.com/plus/what-is-noontec

I just ordered the HDs. Looking forward to seeing how they sound smily_headphones1.gif

Can anyone please describe how good the sound isolation is on the Zoro HD? Are these useful on a plane? I really don't like having to turn up volume to drown out ambient noise...

I am no audio expert but I appreciate when something just sounds good. I currently just have some sub 50$ etymotic in ear headphones which use comply in ear foam tips. I am not crazy about the sound on that but the isolation is alright I guess.

Anyone can compare the Zoro HD to the Incase sonic? The Sonic looks very good and looks like better isolation perhaps but they also look way bigger if I'm correct....

In the CNET article, it says that they have a better seal, so more noise isolation, than the originals, but I don't really know what that even means in practice......like how much does it actually block....?
