    a used wm1a for 700$ is pretty hard to beat as quality sound and monstrous battery without selling a kidney

    i tried 1z , liked it but i can not justify paying 3x times the wm1a price for a 15% improvement

    if you are on a budget , wm1a is unbeatable - plus it's easier to carry around next to the heavier 1z

    if you got money to burn go for 1z

    Did you try the 1z with your Zeus ?. How did you find it ? Too warm , or good ?

    I am still waiting on the Walkman anniversary news :D

    Used 1A will be an excellent platform to modify with much better components

    I really like the BGVP DM6 too. Such a special sound for $199. Though it really takes a different cable purchase too, so you can run them off the 4.4mm plug. They really scale up.

    i see you already own wm1z , so thinking of getting Zeus ?

    Zeus paired fine with 1z , i tried 1z for 1 hour on a SONY store so it was probably not burned in (i think i had like 20 houds on it) and with the original FW

    Zeus is great if you like clarity/transparency/accurate imaging , i see you own Phantom which should be more mids/lows focused

    ares ii 8w pairs great with Zeus btw , very nice cable for the price

    I have the EE Zeus universal and the same two cables you own from Effect Audio. Paired with the 1Z it's nearly perfect to my ears. I picked up the 64 Audio U18t from black Friday sale so I can compare with the Zeus and keep one of them. Well, I'm keeping both.

    Lol this happens every time! I don't buy two headphones at the same time anymore .
    The 1a is also built like a batmobile! Such an incredible dap, in every way.

    The 1A is incredible until you hear 1Z or Z1 :D, But such is the nature of this hobby....a progressive things that you would have to spend so much money to keep up

    someone offered me a NW1A for 530 usd...its 1 year old and hes the second owner while the first owner had it for 3 mos..he says that the bat life is 14 hours?? should I take this?is the bat life good?

    Battery life depends on what you play, how you play it and what effects are enabled. I get 20-25 hours
     
  13. NiVrA
    he only plays flac on balanced mode..is that the normal battery life?
     
  14. nc8000 Contributor
    My 20-25 hours are flac 16/44 on balanced low gain with no effects or processing enabled
