    Where are you in SoCal? I have a Spartan custom you could listen to if we could meet up, I can;t do it until after August 3rd though if that helps.

    That is most kind of you. I am on a bit of a time constraint, so I will let you know.

    Anybody able to give me a comparison of zeus original vs Andromeda? Settled on zeus as my next IEM, haven't heard either, hoping to get to canjam london to test both. Doesn't look like its going to happen though

    ShotgunShane has tried them both. Check his posts out.

    If we were to compare it based on each others sound signature, the andromeda is more balanced compared to the mid forward zeus, although I have heard some say andromeda is mid forward too but not to my ears, but then again i've also heard some say the treble is slightly aggressive. If I may quote @twister6's review, he claims that it has a W sound signature, which is a weird way to describe an IEM, but I somehow agree with it.
    The Andromeda however, is not one for bass heavy IEM fans. That is a definite.

    thanks ejong for the insight. Whilst I do enjoy bass in quantity, this hobby has made me realise that I think mids are most important to me across the sound spectrum. When I listen to my rock songs I want to be immersed in the singers voice and meat of the song as a whole. Anything that is lively and vocally close to my ears is what grabs my attention over lows and highs. As long as the zeus clarity is considered good quality im happy. Seeming as its my last audio purchase for a long while, I think im best off going custom too.

    I never had a chance to audition the original God of 14 drivers, but very soon will begin my testing of Zeus-R and will certainly throw Andromeda into the comparison mix.  Based on what I heard/read from others, Z-R should be more balanced.

    R is definitely more balanced than the OG. If the R wasn't out I would've probably chose the Apollo over the Zeus, as I prefer a more balanced signature.

    I thought I'd summarize the contents of my PM answers to esm87 about Andromda and Zeus, in case anyone else is wondering:

    In a nutshell, the Andromeda sounds U shaped when compared with Zeus-R or you could say the Zeus-R sounds just a little mid-centric compared to the Andromeda. Andromeda has a little more treble presence and sparkle, as well as a little more sub bass boost. Zeus-R sounds more neutral depending on ears and gears. Both have excellent resolution.

    The original Zeus is much more mid forward. It will also be a little warmer with less treble sparkle than Zeus R. What you get in return for those differences is some fantastic layering that is unmatched. Vocals are its specialty.

    I know absolutely nothing about watches, hence the length of time it took me to finally get this project going, but over the weekend I had a chance to finally take one apart and mess around. What do you guys think?

    Is this for who I think it is? Although its not glittery enough for him.

    super cool.....

    Any zeus original owners here have the mojo and listen to music such as kings of leon, chilli peppers, ed sheeran etc.... hows the sound?
  14. tusing
    Looks incredible.
    Imagine how this would look when combined with a wood/gold theme. It would look positively steampunk!
  15. Mimouille
    These two have a very good sound in general (Zeus and Mojo).
