    Hi all,
    I listen to an alround selection of genres, but late night i put on Classic fm ( in the UK), and my goodness yes these phones are good with classical, BUT, i have just swapped the stock cable for a Norne Audio Silver Draug and the difference is huge, the soundstage opens way out, the sound is cleaner and clearer, you are holding your listening pleasure back by using stock honestly.

    Waw great news ! It so happens I have exactly this Norne cable 3.5 mm connectors to XLR!!!
    Can’t wait to hear them !

    I like how DSD sounds with these, hence i am ripping my SACD collection
    Happy New Year
    I'll be happy to answer you
    On each question in great detail

    If you are the israeli who made the Youtube video comparing the Z1r to the HD800S, I must say it’s great. Your style and accent are addictive !
    Have you heard the Hifiman edition x version 2?

    Are you still enjoying the Z1r in classical music ?
    Some poeple talk about it being fatiguing after a while because of some 10k peak.

    Thank you very much for watching&Compliment I tried very hard ....
    Yes ......I am the Israeli who made the film IL IN YOUTUBE
    Yes...... I have the HE V2
    W1000X AT
    The sound is amazing V2
    But I will probably refer to another time I do not have the 800 to compare
    One thing is clear they do not have the openness that there is Z1R + HD800
    But must say a lot depends on a lot of factors
    Most important cables + amplifier like PHONITOR 2
    Source Sound and Audio NAIM DAC
    Or SA-11 S1 and more such as SUPERB recording

    I will try to answer briefly
    I do enjoy the Z1R
    But I have a problem I do not know to if it is
    There are indeed certain recordings that make me really uncomfortable because my right ear is like 20 years old
    But left as 60 .......
    has decreased by 4-6KHZ
    By the way, the day after tomorrow, you do a hearing test
    Days without headphones ... .....
    Once there OHCH is and sometimes is not .
    what leads me to hear
    In HE 400I OR
    The newer HE EV2

    In some recordings there is no trace of this irritating sound
    But in the recordings mainly DGG exists and very very OPEN sometimes but disappears depending on the composition and
    The equipment is NAIM DAC + DIN OUT CORD CHORUS 2
    DENON DCD-3560C Transport
    CD source
    That's why it does not exist all the time but it exists 100%
    I can not tell which frequency
    In HE E-V2 I have no such problem
    And hears all the details of headphones SA GOOD AS Z1R BUT NOY THE SUPER HIGH NOTS
    I almost bought HE-1000 V2
    But for the openness I have the amazing Z1R
    But in order to really get the best out of them Z1R
    had to create
    Larger amplifier faster!!!!
    That's why I chose SPL to work for PuLL Balance
    IN / OUT
    Newotec 3001 cables for headphones
    A fast, strong and transparent amplifier SPL P-2
    And most importantly, another neutral
    The Z1R basses go up in the mid-range frequencies IN BAD AMP

    Only after all this is a lot of money to get to where I am today

    After a year with the amazing SONY Z1R headphones

    Incredible that it happens that you have also the Hifiman!!!!!
    Thanks a lot for the responses!!!!!!

    So now for classical music if you had to choose between the Sony and Hifiman ?
    Maybe Hifiman is better because NEVER fatiguing ? And a bit punchier?
    Perhaps separation is better in Hifiman?
    Strings maybe better in Hifiman?
    Also Hifiman being an open back = more natural tone ?

    Now I’m torn between Hifiman edition x v2 and Z1r....
  15. gerelmx1986
    I use MY MDR-Z1R with a sony NW-WM1A in balanced mode mainly because it sounds best and because 4.4mm offers native DSD decoding
