    Got sick of the treble, turn the high gain on, put the volume to 102 and let my WM1A running for 3 days, the treble driver takes a long time to open up. The sounds is more like the one I heard the first time. Be patient guy.

    Or BRAIN burn in.

    I got a system, I never try any new IEM more than 10 minutes during burn in. I always refer back to the same track for reference.
    Overall head-time with IER-Z1R was 8 hours when I first got it.

    Totally agree with you on the count of both the Solaris and Trinity. I presently have the Trinity Brass, Solaris, and the JVC FW10000 all in one place and in all honesty I most likely will pick up the Z1R soon and then let go of one or two of them from the list. The only other iems I am interested in auditioning after this is the Noble Khan.

    I do believe that the Z1R can benefit from and scale up with increased amping and I like the new crop of high power daps like the LPGT and the N8.

    My take is that even though the Z1R can be driven by smart phones and most daps, it will only sound best with good power and a long burn in

    I keep looking for ways to describe the differences between the Solaris and the Z1R in terms of their high mid/treble. they are obviously two very different phones with different arrangement and tuning. They do have their similarities and differences. I have described both as lacking in high mid/treble—meaning both needing a little more air and sparkle in that range. It just came to me if I may use an analogy to describe the difference for both in this area. With the Z1R it is like you are listening to Pavarotti and he may not have the female soprano’s sparkly treble but you are listening to a genuine character it is who he is or how he sings. But with the Solaris, it is like listening to Pavarotti when he sings with a cold or congestion. This impression came particularly strong after listening to the Trinity for two weeks and immediately switching to Solaris.

    If you’re looking for something with more upper mids, Trinity SS might do the trick. I think it’s supposed to have more higher frequency emphasis than the Trinity Brass?

    Used another eartip for audition and sound became more balanced, so it was not the m0 or lack of driving power. Short story: bought one, deal maker was the excellent fit on my large ears.

    They fit so good. As it’s strange as they don’t look like they would fit as good as they do. You can slighly feel the weight. But, considering how heavy they are in your hand; it’s wild how nice they fit? IMO.

    Congratulations. Fill us in on your perspectives, when ready!

    They are relatively easy to drive, and don’t get a bad signature from low power, but they truly upscale with better sources like you would want them to. IMO
