    Well, you know I was considering the Xelento too. And that is basically a tuned version of the akt8ieii.

    But the included balanced cable with the IE800S and the tiny format (I like tiny IEMs) directed me to the IE800S. I'm glad with my choice. But the akt8ieII are probably in the same league :)

    They are tiny also, yep they probably sound very close. I'd love to demo them, they originals were very good.

    I will send you mine :L3000:
    The ak sure are handsome iems. That's perhaps one gripe I have about the IE800S; they don't look like a 1000$ pair of iems. But then again, I don't want them to be stolen.

    Cool lol, I'll even pay for postage:wink:

    I'll insure them for 2000$ and then you will somehow lose them, okay? :o2smile::o2smile:

    I got Sony ZX-300 with XBA-Z5 (Balanced )

    Can anyone help me with the best EQ settings for bass ?
    (A screenshot might help)

    2. Is there any eartips for XBA-Z5 available in amazon etc. (I lost the red tips given in the box.)

    Thanks.

    Burn in really matters with these Sony DAPs. Got a A-35 with 385 hrs on it and it busts the ass of my ZX300 (on balanced) with 141 hrs

    Hmmm, really? A35 better than ZX300?

    The thing about opinions are that any one can have them.. doesn't make them right or wrong.. it's just an opinion :D

    I don’t believe it will continue to sound better once the zx300 has 250 or so hours on it

    I’m really surprised by that... my zx300 sounded really great from the box, yes it was probably getting a bit more detailed and tighter after 100hrs or so, but THAT much different?...!?!??

    I thought it was only the plastic capacitors that actually ‘required’ (according to Sony’s website) the burn-in because of the way they function... and pretty sure the A-35 doesn’t have that spec of ‘caps’, so burn-in would most likely be ears getting used to things.
