1. Make sure the xLoud & Clear Phase was checked in the sound setting

3. Go to Setting / Apps / ALL / Sound enhancements / then push "Disable" 

4. Enjoy!


After disable the Sound enhancements, EQ won't work anymore.

You have to restart the ZX1 to make it work again.

 

What does X Loud and clearphase do to the sound?

I think those two options only apply to the external speaker.

<sigh> FINALLY my UK ZX1 arrived today after over a months delay :angry_face:

 

Anyway, just charging after an initial listen. Woohoo, happy days :biggrin:

Please give it a try.

It's very useful for driving high impedance headphone.

Are you sure? Both setting are for "Built in Speaker" only.

 

Bother to take a look at the manual? It even have the description in the setting.

The point is disable the Sound enhancements App.It's a software running in the background.
X Loud and Clearphase must be checked to make it work.
Just try it, won't hurt the ZX1.
Don't like it, restart the ZX1.

So, for an item that's not “available” (officially) in the U.S. market the ZX1 arrived faster than anything I've ever ordered off Amazon. I ordered the ZX1 Sunday night (the 20th) and it arrived Tuesday morning (the 22nd). It was fulfilled by Amazon and had to come from a nearby facility.

 

I bought the ZX1 to dispel “the myth” that it's all-that-and-a-bag-of-chips. I planned to check it out for 30 days and ship it back.

 

I started out with a little Brian McKnight (Just Lemme Know) to test the sub-bass descent. The Sony stock player (with Clear Audio +) doesn't go as deep (or have the bass weight) of the Note 3 (with V4A and Poweramp). The ZX1 doesn't have the crisp highs, height, and soundstage depth either. I was quickly ready to poopoo. Then I restarted the song because something sounded different. Oh yeah, it was the dynamic range of individually struck piano keys (that reminded me of the stereo). I picked up on more of these little clues in various other songs. Oddly enough, I got the biggest differentiation by letting a song play that I hadn't planned on comparing. It was Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough (by Michael Jackson). The projection and clarity of instruments (panned right and left) was quite noticeable (and with black space between them and the center) . I don't know what knob I can turn to get the Note 3 to do that.

 

It's still early yet (and there are a few shortcomings), but I'm pleasantly surprised by the pairing of the ZX1 and SE846.

Look forward to your final impressions, I'm currently running the 846s on a DX100 and considering picking up a ZX1.

Based on the information given to those of us waiting over a month, I'd hazard a guess they have very few in stock!

Its not actually back in stock tho I`ve been checking every 10 minutes and when you try to check out it goes to unavailable .... sooo yeah no luck

Nah when I checked about 6 o'clock it was definitely going to let me proceed all the way with the order and was quoting 19th May for delivery.  I've just tried it again and now it won't let me.  They definitely had some earlier.

How does the ZX1 with software update compare to the AK120 and RWAK120? Looking for something to bridge the time until Calyx M is available.
