    yes I understand that aspect of it, the more time I take going through various levels of IEM quality, the more appreciation there is to be had. I have other hobbies that are also fairly expensive and time consuming. Basically, I have an IEM that I really enjoy, it sounds great to my ears, now I just want to go straight to the top as I have a set amount for one final audio purchase, plus I will be selling off other audio products. My money will then be spent on my other hobbies.

    My audio listening is 100% portable. I don't have any source that requires a computer, most of my listening is done in a works van as I spend 12+ hours travelling a day. I don't think I would be the type to listen to multiple IEM's, when I find something I truly enjoy it becomes pretty exclusive. Going into multiple levels of IEM's will become a very expensive hobby in the long term. My portable stack is going to be zeus > mojo

    If you want mid centric then go for Mojo to Zeus XIV not Zeus-R.

    ye its zeus originlal im after. Do you have any impressions on original zeus? Cheers bud
  4. tkteo
    I agree. Vocals on original Zeus-XIV are outstanding. Some may find its sound signature not "balanced" because of the midrange emphasis, but try it with well-mastered vocalist tracks and you may well find Zeus-XIV unforgettable.
  5. Malevolent
    Probably some of the best vocals that you'll ever hear. The Zeus XIV has a lush, sweet, powerful midrange, and authoritative bass that has good impact and great layering. The Mojo is a great source for the Zeus (and most other IEMs), and I'd wholeheartedly recommend this combination, especially for fans of a more mid-forward sound signature.

    Not easy to drive properly without hiss, but once you do, the best mid resolution out there. No contest.

    cheers guys, they must really be something special from your descriptions! Malevolent, thanks for all the descriptions and explanations you've provided over my past few posts

    You could look into point&shoot camera hard zipper cases. Like this:
    But don't buy this one, because I tried it at a store and it is a bit sleek to store a Custom IEM.

    here's another option in the UK

    If your ears are small, this is great: https://www.amazon.com/Westone-Mini-Monitor-Vault-Earphones-Monitors/dp/B00KZEQFO6
    Otherwise you can go with this : https://www.amazon.com/Shure-EASQRZIPCASE-BLK-Hard-sided-Zippered-Earphones/ 
    Or this : https://www.amazon.com/Moleskine-S33049-Shell-Small-Black/dp/8866133043 
    I actually have ALL of these (and more)[​IMG]

    Absolutely LOVE Linum organizer case (scroll down to the bottom: http://linum.dk/webshop), good quality and with mesh pockets on each side, including extra layered pockets.  To give you an idea of the size, it fits LPG dap like a glove.  Wonder if they are (or whoever reps them) going to have it at CanJam UK so you can buy it on a spot?.

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I'm trying out this clam shell type case to see if it'll fit my R's but if not I really like @twister6 suggestion. Should ask my linum supplier about it.
  14. Mimouille
    Yes have the Linux case also, really cool

    Twister6 or Mimouille, could you please share a few pictures on how it looks on the inside?
