It can't be a driver flex

I cant find a solution either.

So made a gamble. the seller wont reply so started a dispute with my debit card bank. Hopefully I get some kind of compensation.

I also bought EDM Meelec from the sale. £7 cheaper then amazon uk. 

I got a bad feeling however that I will loose out the almost £50 I spent on the bassos!

I can't believe that they are so highly praised and they break so easily. Of course by audiophile standards they are budget but that doesn't mean cheap and useless.

I'm still searching for an IEM worth to replace them sometime soon. Probably Vsonic

I know the Meelec EDM wont be beat the Basso's as they are only $50 IEMs and Basso's do sound good.

I did want some ATs but after spending £50 on the basso I cant spend that much more so soon on more IEMs.

I am exactly at the same position. I don't think that EDM will serve me well since they are not my kind of sound I believe.

I think that VSD1 could be good way to go but I still can't spend now on them. Also I kinda lost my confidence towards bang for buck unknown brands. I would prefer a slightly worse pair from a well established brand than any future Zero Audio.

I only listen to EDM so EDM signiture SHOULD suit me.

I however maybe should have waited for AT CKX7.

I've been looking for the best IEM for $50 and so far, the Carbo Basso and Tenore are it!

 

The more earphones I compare to the Zero Audio Carbo Tenore (with MEElectronics M6 double flange tips) the more I realize how incredible they are.  They hit hard, they go deep, they're airy, detailed, clear, engaging, and draw you in.  My only beef with them was that they sometimes could use a little more bass.  I used the EQ on my computer to VERY SLIGHTLY bump up 31hz, 62hz, and 16k (for a little more sizzle) and WOW, they're amazing.

 

Nothing I've compared to them can compare, A161P, S500, nothing in my sig.

 

If you haven't tried the Carbo Tenore (even better with MEElectronics M6 double flange tips), give them a try!

 

The Carbo Basso is equally impressive after I EQ to my tastes (lower the bass, raise the treble).

The hybrid tips to minimize the problem but its still noticeable. frown.gif
I bought from ebay and messaged the seller, will see what he says.

Oh that happened to me too and I was afraid it broke... I just unplugged my basso and paused for a sec and hoped it worked again and it did. I guess I got lucky.

No need to discourage others from choosing Zero Audio IEMs mate, my Tenores are still going strong even though I've not been extra carefuly with them. No issues whatsoever! Still sounding as awesome as ever with the bi-flanges.

 

Best thing I can suggest is do try your best to get in touch with the seller and get another pair sent out to you.

Sorry if I missed it but do the basso's have bigger bass as the MEeM31's

To all kind headfi'er who uses S4 android phone with poweramp, would appreciate if you guys could share your preferred eq settings with the basso. As I have recently got the the S4 and have just installed the poweramp, I would really need a hand here as I have never tried any form of eq before. Do kindly share your experience here or pm. Some screen shots would be really helpful. Thanks in advance guys.

I ended up using neutron (or poweramp) without EQ, but feeding through Noozxoide which provides some presets and really sounds awesome:

Thanks waynes for the thoughts. I thought i read that the Noozxoide will be discontinued. Wonders if you had any idea about it though it's still available for download . Anyway, noob question. How do I apply it to poweramp? Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure about it becoming discontinued (might be). Here is the play store link:

For getting it working on your device (and with poweramp), I think that the first post in this link explains it all:

Good luck!
