The Mac compatible program is call Content Transfer, but it's probably no better than drag & dropping.

Lucky you , I have done my homework on this before

The fabulous , yet impractical (<-- click it)

 

Available in other colors , but I like the above most
 

 

TPU case available on amazon . also in grey, white and blue

 

 

General travel case not dedicated to ZX1

 

Another impractical



My favorites up till now , from Vannuys , available on amazon.co.jp . They hit the sweet spot between look, functionality and price , best of all I have seen .

 

 

With your smartphone

 

 


With DAC

 

 

And that one bag to rule them all ..

so much space for activities

Look all great for boys , not any where near for girls , unless you dig tomboy style . But I think this one might work

I'm still debating on whether to buy the ZX1 or wait for the Fiio X5 or Ibasso DX90.

 

My main concern is that the ZX1 I buy will be EU limited and whether or not it will be enough to drive both my AKG K3003I and more importantly my Ety ER4s. 

 

I've searched the thread but cant find much recent info.

 

Is anybody using an EU restricted ZX1 with the Ety's and if so are they useable without the need for an amp?

Another try on apps:

 

I am looking and testing a lot for an app that allows me to remind me of / alarm me even when the headphones are plugged in but not in my ears. (For example: the player leys on the table but I still want to "get" the reminder).

 

I have tried out a LOT. There are two typs: most of the apps do not send the alarm via speaker when headphones are plugged in (though I tested them all on my phone where this works just fine). One app allows for the setting: use speaker when plugged. This one plays the alarm via speaker YEA... BUT this one looses its punctuality on the ZX1. On my Note 2 it always starts on the set time. On the ZX1 it is allways late from 10 minutes to 2 hours. But everytime I start the player it plays the "forgotten" alarms.

 

Has anybody any thaughts on this? Why does it behave like this? Is there an app that combines speaker sound with punctuality?

 

I don't want to always have my phone with me but I do want to always have my DAP with me. Therefore it is the better device for holding my schedule.

I think if you were to share with us your a prioritised list of what you seek in your DAP it'll be easier to provide some of our thoughts.

 

e.g.

ZX1

+ Soundstage

+ closest to the "easy to use" iDevice experience without sacrificing sound

+ Reasonably detailed signature

+ light DAP. Easily fits into pocket and easy to access/intuitive buttons (with the right case)

- a little odd shape with the bump

- fixed 128GB memory

- proprietary WM-port for charging or line out

- typical amplifier for IEMs and easy-to-drive cans, but not for Orthos, etc.

 

X5

+ excellent value for money at $350

+ powerful amp

+ quite neutral signature

+ dual microSD

- UI not as intuitive as the ZX1 (but not as bad as some other DAPs)

- sound stage not as wide as the ZX1 (but admittedly still quite a good sound stage for its price)
- a little chunkier feeling than the ZX1

 

DX90

? Who knows ?

 

Although I've not tried the ZX1 with the K3003, I have tried the K3003 with other players and it never struck to me as being a demanding earphone. I don't think the ZX1 would have any issues driving those earphones.I have no experience with the ER4s unfortunately.

 

Would be interesting to see how the ZX1 handles Tzar 90/350 IEMs.

@ McCol: 

I am using an EU ZX1 but I do not know what Ety's are. I have a the psb M4U2 as the only headphones worse mentioning here. They work fine. If there is anything I can test for you just tell me.

I really like that case, but I've never been able to track one down to get it to the states.

It's for a DAP that costs well north of $700, to be fair. 

post #4285 of 7455

The case looks classy now doubt, but when you are willing to leav the corners unprotected, why bother with a case?

I have the TPU one in the post above. It is not that beatyfull but is much more functional.

 

Just my two cents

Ordered the ZX1 from Sony UK today.  Don't know when it will arrive though.  Pre-order on site says around the 22nd but when I spoke to Sony they had no idea, could be then or a few weeks yet!  Had a 20% discount code which wiped a nice £110 0ff the price.

post #4287 of 7455

Can ZX1 drive ultrasone pro 900 flawlessly? They are comparable to DT770 pro 80 ohm in terms of power required for driving them properly. I keep reading that ZX1 is underpowered for most mid to high impedance full-sized cans

post #4288 of 7455

Wow where are people finding these discounts codes from?  I'd order today if there was 20%  off!

Have you tried to use the SBH-52 from sony? that thing displays quite a lot of stuff thanks to its smart connect app, not only songs.
