    Thanks. I think our Sony products are pretty quick to hit the market. So yeah, maybe Christmas. Thanks. Looks like I'll wait for these to come out before considering one for a dap. I was thinking of the A30, but if this takes balanced this might be the way to go.

  3. Witcher
    what's so special about this? can you enlighten me?
  4. PCheung
    Using USB-DAC for watching movies and play games?

    That's what I did with my AK240(with audioquest Jitterbug)
    Much better results than my cheap LCD monitor's headphone jack

    I really dig it's matte screen. Fingerprint free!!!!

    Hope we can see the 1A/1Z get an update for the USB DAC feature.

    I'm definitely sold on the zx300!

    How do you know that it's a matte screen?
  7. Paddlebash
    I spotted it in the wild! The balanced 4.4 and the design is similar to the 1a, but with a zx100 body, only black and long.

    Any chance you could take some pics or perhaps do a mock-up? I'm so excited

    Not entirely related but I wonder will there be an in-ear model for the Signature Series. I mean N3AP was only released last year but it is not meant to be the flagship model. And Z5 was realeased quite some time ago. Or I would appreciate a global release of Just Ear.

    well, sony japan still sells xba-40, which is the predecessor to xba-z5 ( but z5 is higher and very different in nature), the xba-n3 is not flagship, probably the fact that high end in ear phones don't sell in large quantities, thus, less revisions.

    but i noted that xba-40 and n3, even the recent xba-300 are easy to drive, but the z5 has high impedance and quite difficult to drive, considering balanced 4.4mm output is quite recent introduction to walkman range - wm1a or z and new zx300, could we see more hard top drive earphone requiring balanced output or even z5 sold with balanced jack as standard or less hard to drive flagships due to lack of demand?

    There is already a 4.4mm balanced jack Kimber for the Z5. I doubt they'll update the product. Probably just push the cable sale more.

    Last time I asked there is no plan for a new flagship universal IEM from Sony. And Just ear can't go global cos you can only get the ear impression done by one person...

    I'm going to have to keep a close eye on Sony during IFA. This thread has definitely whet my appetite for a ZX300. I'd love a more lightweight and compact sibling of the NW-WM1Z. The NW-A35 ran into a couple issues so it was returned, but the rumored ZX300 details are making me think it could potentially suit my very specific wants and needs. Here's to hoping.
