    If the VX's bass is too much, than the Zeus's bass is probably your cup of tea. Zeus has very forward vocals as in they are the forefront of the presentation, sometimes to me it feels like it takes away from the rest of the presentation.

    And I feel that the mids are the best part of the Zeus (if it weren't for the wonderful upper end). Great vocal presentation. BTW, we are speaking of the XlV or Massdrop, not the R, which is flatter.
  3. KuroKitsu
    Right, but the tuning isn't so different between the 2 to the point where my take on the mids is invalid.
  4. olddude
    The whole difference of the XlV and the R is the forward mids. Maybe a bit less bass on the R as well. But the R was brought out to please folks who felt the XlV was a bit too forward/active in the mids. It's not a giant difference, but it is surely noticeable. I rarely use the R setting as I love the way the mids are in the XlV setting.

    That is the IEM I would like to try out, with the Legend X.
    You were right about the KSE1200, highs were great, but mids were somewhat weak, and instrument timbre was off by quite a bit.. Overall it was a pretty decent IEM, but the amp is a pain in the @$$.
    Good luck with the hunt.

    I don’t know if I can post the link, but if you go to Hawaii Bad Boy’s YouTube channel (Bad Guy Good Audio Reviews) he has a link for the same $250 off Zeus until 10/14.
