    I guess "**** happens"! I shouldn't worry about it as long it happens during warranty period * knocks wood*
    Anyone can compare the KZ ZS5/6 with these IT01? I've been listening to the KZ ZS 5 for a while now. Appreciate the soundstage and the colorful sound is growing on me.

    Crossovers for a single dynamic?

    I’ve been listening for a couple of days with 30ish hours of burn in and these have separation of a multi-ba iem. My first graphene earphone and I am mightily impressed.

    I have both the King and Exclusive 5 by TFZ and IT03. I like the IT03 better but it is not fair comparison as the TFZs are single DD while the IT03 is a hybrid. Given the choice, I would chose the IT03 over the others. But, I do like the TFZs sound signature and for the price, they are a nice piece.

    I like the IT01 so far. I'm burning it in now and like its sound. Seems a little darker than the King and Ex 5. I have always gravitated to the warmer signature so the IT01 is fitting in there nicely.

    On my second graphene. My second is the RT-1 so it has an armature in there as well. That ability of the Graphene makes for a good match in a hybrid configuration. They also have a better ability than other driver coatings to be quick and tight and articulate on the low end even with voluminous bass amounts :)

    IT04 is gonna have a Graphene dynamic, right?

    It04 will have graphene driver

    I think Paul said earlier that it will. Will you be getting an IT01 jant?
  8. jant71
    Yeah, thought I read it was for sure but there is so much to read about these days.

    My money is going to the new DUNU flagship/other things so not getting an IT01. Unless they want to send me one to try out:)

    Sorry for the wordings. I didn't mean to say there's an actual crossover mechanism. That might confuse others, I understand. I was only referring to the crossover effect itself.

    Will you link me to this "Crossover Effect"? It piqued my interest.
    Also have you tried using the IT01 cable on the CH9T? Does your comparison on stock ch9t cable and the premium stock cable on IT01?

    Again sir, you're taking it literally. It's just common sense. I was referring to how an actual crossover works, not the mechanism itself. Perhaps it would suit you better if I used "separation" instead. My mistake. Should I explain it further?

    As for the cables, I tried to fit the IT01 cable on my CH9T but the connection was too stiff. It held well but I decided to remove them to avoid future problems. Also, I didn't try to analyze and look for any changes in sound.

    Sorry but my common sense tells me that there is no Crossover in a Single BA IEM, and no crossover effect since there is no crossover circuitry to begin with.
  13. pr0b3r
    Again, for the nth time, my mistake for not using the word "separation" instead of that crossover thing. I guess some people take things quite literally at times. I'm aware that there's no actual crossover mechanism in a single dynamic driver IEM. Yeah, single "dynamic" driver, not single BA as you thought it was. Please see my posts again. I edited them for clarification.

    Gotcha, makes much sense with "separation".

    Driven from a low output impedance source, the ZS6 is much brighter in the highs and quite sibilant. The only area where the IT01 is more forward in the highs is 5 kHz - leads to a slight metallic touch added to cymbals, but without sharpness or sibilance.

    The IT01 has got the more neutral midrange timbre in comparison - the ZS6 is a bit more boosted and therefore a bit brighter in the upper mids.

    The IT01 is a marginally warmer in the lower mids. Bass levels are comparable - the ZS6 is just a little bassier. Bass quality is clearly superior on the IT01. The ZS6 is rather slow and soft in the lows whereas the iBasso is quite fast and tight.
