    The Supra is quite a fitting name for this particular IEM, as Zeus is quite the fitting name for the current Empire Ears flagship.  The price may be entry, but that's where the similarities end.  Entry doesn't befit the Supra.

    This.

    The scaling on Supra can be quite a shock if you pair it with a very good source or a well stacked combo.

    The idea of pairing it with a Fiio x3 Coaxial connect to Chord Mojo then amplified with the TubeAmp TA1 sends chills down my spine.

    Because that stack made even my XB50AP sounds extremely resolving and transparent!

    I cant even imagine how Supra will sound with that.

    Or completely forgo a stack and use a great sounding DAP such as the QP1R that in my opinion rivals even some desktop amplifiers with regards to sound quality.

    Well I would go that route if I know where to buy it from in Malaysia. XD

    But sadly my income isn't as good so i just make do with what I got.

    Currently I am using a Fiio X1 + E12A + TubeAmp TA1.

    Excessive stack? Maybe. But I wanna try and see how its gonna sound if I gor a third round with Empire in future.

    Where there is a will, there is a way.
     
    Good luck!

    I've already got my ideal combo in mind for source but it will take a lot of time to get there for sure.

    That is okay, time is on your side.

    Any particular reason why the TA1 is not directly connected to the X1? From everything I have read double amping actually adds unnecessary noise and distortion.

    It's an experiment I haven't tried yet.

    I want to see how these two will stack up with my own ears. If it does yield unnecessary noise and distortion then I will go back to the TA1.

    It's still my combo at the moment.

    I will say this though.

    My PC is using the Fiio Q1 as a DAC and fed through the E12A amp together for my AKG K99 and so far I don't hear any distortions or noise.

    I noticed the Cerberus and Hermes (the two I am interested in) have a low frequency limit of 40 Hz, whereas the upper end iems go to 20Hz. Do you guys that have tried these find a subbass roll off? I love bass extension and texture is a smooth sounding package/

    so back to best pairing after few trials between cowon plenue s, fiio x7, mojo
     
    well no doubt at all the best pairing with zues r is with the mojo, followed by cowon plenue s
     
    fiio x7 is a bit bright with the zeus r, and hisses a lot with am3 and am5, so I use ifi iematch with fiio x7 and no hiss at all
     
    but mojo and zeus r are a match made in heaven
     
    as for tips after trying tons of tips, I went back to the included spinfit as they sound the best

    Ok my post might be broken up into a few chunks as I go through the posts and start to respond, apologies if I end up double posting and try to condense into one post, as I address posts from different pages. This is what I get for staying off Head-Fi for the weekend haha.

    In your situation, I'd recommend trying the B1 module, which a number of people have already mentioned. So good on them.
    It's really about what you're looking to gain/alter. I've only listened to the Supras with the G1s, I really really liked em tho. In terms of engineers in the IEM world, Dean from Empire is easily my favorite. As you know from the Supra listening, it's very crisp, clear and sparkly. I prefer a bit more bass than he usually goes with, so for me the added bottom end with the G1 is a perfect fit to my preferences.

    A musician was just asking me about this the other day. At the time that Dean and I measured certain models we didn't know how to calibrate the hardware and software so the default settings wouldn't pick up anything below 40Hz. Specs will be updated shortly alongside the ADEL launch. It should be 20Hz for both Cerberus and Hermes.
