Just got my ZMF's. Version 1. Listening to the first song on them now. These are incredibly smooth!
Also I am getting plenty of bass depth and impact. Just about perfect there. not too little not too much. And most of the phones i was considering were in the basshead club just to make sure mind you. But i went with these instead. And I am not dissapointed. The very lowest of lows have a nice subwoofer on the other side of the club presence. It's definitely there. I't just very controlled not to bleed into the mids. Not that i would enter these in the bass club... but I have multiple IEM sets with less bass than these anyway.
Basically loads of detail in all regions and no humps of any sort except a maybe little extra zazz right in the female vocal region. But that might be my amp which is known for exactly that.
(of course im listening in flac though... not the youtube :)
.... After listening to some more music. I realize that there is no spike anywhere. That was just that track and Thievery Corporation in general that is bright in that area. These things are indeed perfectly liquidy smooth as far as im concerned. I'm not good with all the big words like any kind of audio vet around here. I'm still learning a lot as i go. But this was definitely a solid purchase. These do it all!!!
well separated and extended yet well controlled on the most visceral death metal you got. so long as it's reasonably well mastered i suppose.
I could see some wanting just a teeny tiny bit more of an "in your face" sound for dubstep. But they do have again a nice liquidy separation that when listening to any reasonably well produced music. Is just damn fine. Really nice stuff.
I am absolutely smitten with my purchase. Enamored even! Just chuffed to bits!!
