Again, have not used EVR but Massdrop Zeus is very wide and very open. Transparent is the word I keep posting here. The only way you will know what is what is to try one or the other. BTW the Zeus XR has two tunings, the original XlV and the R, with a switch to choose which you want. The XlV has more forward mids, the R is a bit flatter. I rarely use the R setting. The MassDrop Zeus is the XlV.
