  Hey Nick just wondering have you heard of the R edition? I can't recall whether you did or not.

His thoughts between the R and the XIV are here:

  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? 
 
 
I think they're a lovely start. Helbros, nice choice.

I haven't heard the SE5 or A12. I have heard the U10. The Adele loaded iem seem to produce its sonic image a bit differently. It's lighter feeling and airy throughout. Things aren't dense like with many multi-BA's. While there's a feeling of open spaciousness, it's not a pinpoint, exacting kind of image. At least that's how I've interpreted it over a couple of days.
 
Shane, I know what I am about to ask is not a fair question, as it has been a while since you owned the U10, but off your memory, would you be able to comment, how the Z-R compares to the U10 in terms of tuning and technical capabilities?
 
Thanks for your help!

Nice write up. What I don't completely understand is the demo model of Zeus with the switch; Zeus-R should have a different crossover and added resistors against the hiss compared to the original XIV. So I'm guessing the switch would be between Zeus-R and a tuning resembling XIV, though not exactly the same thing (Jack?).  
 
Anyways, that would be an insanely cool production feature like the Vision Ears V6xcontrol. Please consider that in the future EE!

The easy things I remember: the U10 is much, much bassier than the Zeus-R. Zeus's bass will be more tactile and firm compared to the airy Adele bass. Also the U10 didn't have a lot of treble presence. Treble detail could be masked by the prodigious bass. Treble is one of the Zeus-R fortes. Really nice sparkle and timbre, as well as very resolving. So overall the Zeus-R is much closer to neutral.
