I won't mention if I believe in burn in but hope this will shade some light or should I say some flames :biggrin:

 

Warning: Spoiler! - don't try this at home (Click to show)

 

 

I would also like to see more comparisons with other daps however they are not yet released to the general public, the likes of X5, X7, etc.. Once they are, I would really like to see how those compare to the ZX1, as far as form factor I am still on the fence, not because the ZX1 looks bad, it does not, however it looks more like a mobile phone without the phone function, thank god it has buttons because my phone annoys me with having to always taking it out of my holster to change music. Now, how have you guys dealt with transporting the ZX1 without scratching it, dropping it and easily accessing it while on commute? That is one thing that worries me.

I honestly do not know...but it sounds great as it is. The 901 might still have the edge in SQ, but if you add form factor, ZX1 is certainly the best all rounder so far for iems (unless you have only brighy iems).

Has anyone here tried this with the JH13?

Oh really? Guess I'll have to switch.

Sounds like the zx1 can drive the Momentums well. Good.

Edit: after reading a few reviews, I think the k267 would be a good complement to the Momentum, for music that the Momentum doesn't reproduce we'll. Momentums for hip hop, edm, reggae, soul, rnb. K267 for rock, metal some folk.

The Vsonic iems I have tend to do well where the senns don't (and then some, if you can get a good seal). The akg cans may be a good buy but, I'm not sure if it's worth it.

Have been browsing through this thread. I'm strongly considering the ZX1 as my next mobile source unit. Do we have a firm release date for US yet, or is it just 'sometime early next year'? Any thoughts on if the price point might come down a bit (based on prior Sony releases)? Looks like it's in the high $900 range right now, going by Ebay from Japan. Seems just a little steep...I'd love to see it get down closer to the $800 range. Either way, it looks like a very nice piece of mobile hardware!

 CES 2014 is coming up in January. Products announced then usually take 2 or more months to show up for sale on Sony US website. Dont know if ZX-1 will be announced or even released here. I'm suprised XBA-H1 iems are already on the website. Thought that will be announced at CES before hand.

 

About the price tag, I doubt it will retail to $900 or even $800. Maybe in the $600-$700 range if ever released here.

It's not mine. It was at the e-earphone show and Oyaide just received the unit the day before the show. I had a chance to play with it a little and wrote my thoughts here.

I've not gotten the ZX1 to play DSD. I don't think it's supported is it?
