    SONY IER-Z1R

    In a little ways north in Orange County but if you (or anyone else) venture this way I'd happily meet up somewhere for demoing. I also have a bunch of tips/cables to experiment with.

    Modifying WM1Z/A

    The thread only became about moderating decisions AFTER indiscriminate moderation was running rampant... Of course no one will ever know the full story at this point due to so many posts being deleted without warning. 5... 4... 3... 2.

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    We're drifting a ways off topic but absent other published results by reputable independent research firms Gartner is a good base to build on. My point wasn't specific to any version of Defender, but rather that Microsoft knows what they are doing in this space (and if one is being thwarted by...

    Just a somewhat random guess, but code signing might help to avoid being flagged by anti-virus software if that's important. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/seccrypto/signtool?redirectedfrom=MSDN

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Yeah I'm also glad to have both, with the 1Z serving stationary duties and the 1A setup to throw in an every-day-carry bag as it's lighter and also would be less painful in case of loss or damage while I'm out and about.

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    I'm listening primarily on my IER-Z1R and the soundstage is very wide / exceptional, especially listening to tracks like the DSD of Dire Straits' Ride Across The River.

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Just listened to some test tracks and wow, tonally the 1A with Chameleon FW is very hard to distinguish from the 1Z at this point. If I'm being super picky in A/B-ing, the organic warmth that I love about the 1Z is now there in the 1A... except it feels like there might be a very slight...

    Maybe this one from Australia? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Genuine-SONY-IER-Z1R-4-4mm-Balanced-IEM-Headphone-Cable-New-Unused/164369563923?epid=26023333796&hash=item2645308113:g:gmIAAOSw-Q1fU057

    SONY IER-Z1R

    I think maybe it just doesn't show up in the search results if there's no inventory? The page is still there. https://www.amazon.com/Sony-IER-Z1R-Signature-Headphones-IERZ1R/dp/B07HXPZ44S

    Sony EX1000 Review and Impressions Thread (with comparisons to FX700, GR10 and e-Q5)

    I think the EX1k holds up extremely well and depending on my mood I still switch back and forth between it and my IER-Z1R. The mod is fairly easy, and I'm hitting it for the evening but will take some photos tomorrow that might help visualize the dissection since I actually took the connector...

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    My music is all @ 320kbps on there and it sounds better than one would expect but a little bright tonally with just average instrument separation aside from cymbals which seem to really stand out (all without using any of the built in effects).

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Haha yeah the software does stink. It's Sony's early take on iTunes (which I also dislike).

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    This little guy says "hey don't forget about me!". This unit started my Walkman DAP journey, and still works great.

    SONY IER-Z1R

    I don't find it to be so (but my Z1Rs' filter has been modified with less-dense foam so may not be true for stock setups).
