it's bass is impactful like ier-z1r?
Z1R sounds more sub bassy (rumbly) whereas XE6 is more mid bassy (punchy). Both very impactful but I’d say XE6 has more “slam” because of its greater mid bass presence.

Anyone with the KR5 or XE6 have a preferred DAP that blows you away with the pair up. Interested in both IEMs and looking at the N8ii and Shanling M9. Finally time to upgrade gear I think :)

Here are mine... Went for the understated, classy look with standard gray shells and gold logos. Love the matte finish! The pelican case is super nice too!

Good eye! That would be because I'm a weirdo and asked Fir to place my cable connector at the bottom so I can wear them cable down instead of over the ear. To accommodate my request, they had to move the modules to the top of the shells.
