    The one thing with AK and their 2.5mm is that they are hard to work on, and the terminated contact is too small for a good clean conductivity, especially for high power. I rather stick with 4.4mm, it is way more capable than 2.5

    Do you see Sony releasing a 'signature series' iem at some stage as a successor to the Z5?
  3. daniel_hokkaido
    Yeah I can't speak to the technical aspects. Thanks for the feedback. Going smaller for higher performance for a jack has an element of cognitive dissonance also. Bigger is better! :)

    Fellow 1Z owners...I'm getting better SQ (dynamics and micro details) from selecting high gain than choosing low gain...even when both are played at similar loudness.

    Is that your findings too? Do share...
  5. Whitigir
    Different people report different findings, but in my experiences, Yes, I agree because I use it with Utopia
  6. nc8000 Contributor
    Yes that's my experience with Z1R and JH13
  7. gerelmx1986
    I don't know if sony has plans for a IEM flagship. Regarding the High gain yes i get better micro details too

    Anyone using the WM1A balanced into an Oppo PM-3? I'm trying to decide between the Sony and the Onkyo DP-X1A; the Onkyo has Tidal capability but uses a 2.5mm jack for balanced output. I'd prefer the sturdier 4.4mm jack, and will order a custom cable regardless.

    I have both...
    Pairing with my Z1R, I prefer the KANN in SE mode (waiting for my 2.5 balanced cable) vs. 1A in 4.4 balanced mode.

    KANN sounds more lively, more engaging, less warm, pairs with the Z1R better overall.

    If you use other headphones/IEMs, your preference may differ.

    I am going to try this out today.. more options on wm1z more fun

    As a 1A owner I don't have a case at the moment. What do you recommend the original Sony case CKL-NWWM1 or the Dignis case?
    It seems Accessoryjack is somehow offline since a few days (Hosting Server Connect Timeout HTTP 502 — Unable to Connect to the Origin Server), I guess its the Dignis case then... :)
  12. gerelmx1986
    I don't have a case either, naked is better, I just threat it so careful
  13. PCheung
    The dignis case for sure
    I have one and I love it

    I have a CKL-NWWM1 come with my 1Z and it is a joke
    another one I would recommend is the flip cover from musashino

    the one from miter also looks good, but seems like made of PU leather and don't have the bottom corner covered.

    Finally finished with the burn-in on the balanced jack (at least the Sony recommended one) !! Will there be any impact if I don't burn in the SE output at all. I'm not looking to use it and given that the circuits are different I don't think the SQ should suffer so long as I listen via the balanced output?

    If you don't use single ended there is no need to do burn in as none of it is used
