The only good LZ is the A2 which is discontinued. The current sub $40 hype is the Senfer 4in1
I have a senfer and a cheaper Trinity on order. my comparison will be the carbo tenors and lz a2
If you have the Tenores, put some spiral dot tips on them and use them with the Zorloo ZuperDAC. The sound is fantastic!
I bought the Carbo Basso a few weeks ago after Zero Audio's recent upsurge in popularity. It's always nice to have a spare set of buds.
Here's my take/brief review after a few weeks of usage.
- It's too easy to create a "vacuum" seal where the audio is muffled because the drivers don't get enough air to move freely. I've had this problem with another brand previously
- In my ears they're always either a little too loose or too far into the ear canal.
- This was the biggest disappointment. It's got plenty of bass but it's very boomy. It doesn't feel very balanced or rich. It's a loud, deep but ultimately flat bass experience. I'm not sure if the tenors are any better. The overall soundscape is wide, but that doesn't mean it's enjoyable. Seems to lack separation when too much is going on at the same time.
I have an alternative recommendation that in my experience blows these ones out of the water for the same price: the Sony MDR-EX450s. They go for around the same price, maybe slightly more. They have a very deep and quite punchy bass, rich soundscape, clear mids and highs and are overall a much more satisfying experience with all kinds of music. They have a design that sends the audio deep into your ear which results in a more organic sound, for lack of a better word. I've had mine for about two years now and nothing else comes close at the price point.
Well, for now I bought a Jeecoo DZAT-DF10 wood IEM's since it was available on Massdrop which would be fun and also I'm in the mood for testing a wooden IEM and seeing the effects for myself. I'll sadly hold off the Tenore's until I find a better, more up to date earphone which actually has good build quality like the DZAT-DF10.
If you are looking for a nice alternative to the Carbo Tenore at only a modest step up in price; I would suggest looking at the Trinity Vyrus. I have both of these now and I am very impressed with what Trinity has done.
Anyone order the new Zero Bass or Carbo Mezzo?
Any way to buy the new gear via English sites?
Going to pick them up later at the post office. Should i start a new thread for them?
I don't know what happened, but suddenly, since September, the Carbo Tenores cost in Europe $80 or even more. They cost $50 or less 2 months ago...
yes!! thank you!
Damn, well, my Carbo Tenore's, after a year, got broken. I wanna buy them so bad, I've tried 2 different in-ear headphones I already had and man, I'm telling you, there so much difference in the comfort and sound quality that it's even annoying. I damn this thread, now I don't want any other headphone, I want Carbo Tenore's and only them.
What can I do? ((((((
Where did you buy them?
