    Smoke Shells
    Smoke Faceplates
    Silver Logos
     
    Good choice! Smoke is by far our most popular option. Which model were you thinking about?

    I know, I have actually been reading up on what it takes to get one. Looks like even the post office does the photos, I knew about Costco doing them.

    I'm thinking about no other than the best sounding iem on head fi. The Zeus 14. I heard it beats both the K10 and Layla. And that's no small feat that's for sure.

    I'm kinda partial to Smoke with Black Chrome and Gold logo's only because that's what I got  (see avatar). Selfish me[​IMG]

    I'm obviously biased, but I love the smoke/gold logo combo, particularly with carbon fiber faceplates...

    Scanning on the Pono ain't fast for sure. I think it's a little slower compared to the X5, but at least faster than the DX90 in that regard
    With the same amount of files (± 12K songs) this is approximately (from memory) how long it took me with different daps
     
    DX90 - around 50 min
    Pono - around 40 min
    X5 - around 30 min
    Plenue 1 - within 5 min
     
    Pono doesn't show you the progress though => maybe @moedawg140 only had 10 files to go to reach that finishline [​IMG]
    Just curious: is the QP1R (still on my radar) fast at scanning and doesn't it have the 10K file limit anymore?
     
    Anyway, imo Pono deserves to be listened to in balanced mode [​IMG]
     
     
    Zeus should be definitely one of the top contenders for that title. Hope I can audition the Zeus sometimes soon, as I know another dutch member that has it.
    From what I've read so far on HF (quite a lot I must admit), the SE5 reference / ultimate (haven't heard it myself) probably also would be a serious candidate though [​IMG]

    Hmm I wonder. If the Zeus doesn't contain any filters, how are the drivers protected from debris?
     
  9. Cotnijoe

    The filters are more for acoustic purposes than anything else. Not really to block something from getting into the BAs. Something like ear wax isnt really going to get stuck anywhere near the drivers.

    I'll have to say, being able to customize universals is a very nice touch. There aren't very many iem firms around that let's you do that. I can't wait to buy my Gunmetal face plate, smoke shell, Golden logo Zeus. It'll be envy of all my friends.

    Oooh. "Best" is very subjective, but really, for what it's worth, the Zeus is definitely among the very best. You certainly won't be disappointed. In fact, you'll find it difficult to remove them from your ears. [​IMG]

    We tube our drivers pretty far back. Even wax doesn't make it back that far. You'd have to intentionally shove it all the way back there with something thin and long. We've never seen it reach the drivers but if goes past what the cleaning tool can't scoop out send it in and i'll gladly clean it out for you! =)

    Can't wait to handcraft it for you! 
     
     
    Thank you very much kind sir! Glad you are enjoying them!

    I can't put the Zeus down. I tried a few different sources, but my favorite so far is the DPX1 to Mojo to Zeus. I don't hear any hiss, and any genre sounds amazing. I don't want to put them down for conference calls at work.

    The Zeus is the best IEM I've personally heard, and while I can't claim to have heard everything out there (especially with the explosion of CIEM companies in the last few years), I've heard a lot of different earphones. Like many in this thread, several from my history could be considered TOTL or end-game options, including the following 8 models:
     
    Noble Kaiser 10 Universal Aluminum
    EarWerkz Legend Omega CIEM
    Sony XBA-Z5 
    Aurisonics ASG-2.5
    AKG K3003i
    DITA Answer Truth Edition
    Roxanne UF
    Shure SE846
     
    If anything, that should speak volumes about how highly I regard my Zeus XIV. [​IMG]
