I’m just joking
I’m loving the new colors?
Wait are those speakers on it
Sure looks like built in speakers! If I may, it kind of cheapifies things in my humble opinion.
Those are E series concept drawings of Walkmans?
They sure look good together
They sure don't sound good together though, the NW-WM1A lacks the power to drive the MDR-Z1R properly, you just don't nearly the same amount of detail as you would driving it from a desktop (or more powerful portable) amplifier.
While high impedance headphones require higher voltage, low impedance headphones on the other end, require higher current. Lower impedance doesn't always mean easier to drive, that's something to keep in mind.
Don’t know about the 1A but they certainly sound fine on 1Z with high gain on, but yes they sound better from the SE amp
The 1Z has the same power output, so no, it doesn't sound "fine" from it. It sounds fine (actually great) from the DMP-Z1 from the balanced output,the Sony ta-zh1es or even the Hiby R6 Pro from the balanced output.
Well to each his own
i did extended listenings on all those equipments and the difference in sound quality using the MDR-Z1R between, the DMP-Z1 and the NW-WM1Z is night and day and plainly obvious.
I’m sure you did but to me and my ears and my standards they sound fine from the 1Z and better from the ES but never night and day difference
Still the 1A is great at powering the Z1R. Yes......everything is a pissing contest. Take the Z1R and DMP-Z1 then go listen to a 100K speaker rig. It’s all relevant. PSsssss
I am surprised R6 Pro able to push this well.
From what I tried my friend's R6 Pro bass is muddy compared to 1A. Audio shop boss agrees with me and says that it has the power but don't drives things well/properly.
The R6 Pro bass did not/does not sound muddy to me.
That's what I heard using Acoustune HS1650CU (Warmer sounding DD IEM) playing same song on MSD card.
Or does it needs more burn in time? My friend had it for like 3 weeks. Or maybe it does not pair well with this pair of IEM.
