So I have a stupid question, so I have the Zeus-XR Adel showing up in the mail tomorrow and it’s my first set of IEMS, but here’s my question. I keep hearing people say they turned their ADEL off for various reason, how do you turn your Zeus-XR Adel into non-ADEL?


sell it , use the funds to buy the non-adel version :gs1000smile:

Yea you really can't achieve the sort of sound you'd get from an XR non-A even with the carrot module. Much prefer XR for image solidity, layer, separation, clarity and resolution.

I've got the Hugo 2 coming...I was going to send my Zeus XR off to be refitted on the left side but decided to wait in order to post my thoughts with the Hugo 2 pairing. I'm so psyched, Hugo 2 and the new EE stuff is really the only thing I care to hear these days.

Hey at least you've a better player than me lol.

And the Cerberus is quite a good IEM. The bass packs quite a punch from my last experience.

Strange thing that happened the other day when I was using them at work. Had managed to get a seal and was slightly overwhelmed by the amount of bass that was coming out. It was tending to swamp the vocals a bit which wasn't my cup of tea at all. Checked the sony's settings and it transpired that I had switched clearaudio+ on by accident! I'm a don't believe in any eq or effects kind of guy so switched it back off and the bass settled back down almost straight away. Still it showed that I could get a decent seal, so hoping that a bit of thickening on the left is all that is required.

the clearaudio+ feature is quite a bigger for Sony players eh...

But glad you resolved the problem at least.

Personally I only use the bass on/off features once in a while with my E12A as I think its got the best implemented bass boost from many amps I've tried over the years.

But that's all. I never touch EQ either myself.

Can anyone tell me how the Zeus-XIV compares to the Zeus-XIV Adel with the O1 module? Does it closely make it fully isolating or is there a noticeable difference (mostly in the sub-bass i'd assume)

just wanted to say how much I love my Zeus XR - and i really like the bass on zeus, as it hits hard without sounding bloated

it's what another member said , zeus may not gonna WOW you at first listen but at some point you will catch yourself being addicted to it

clarity, separation , musicality - it's all there

great job EE
