When I see this, I am surprised since the Zero2 sounded horrible to me. It had some bass, not enough, and the quality was actively bad. I am reminded that this hobby is subjective, and Chifi QC is sus.

I have the Explorer, and the S08 coming later this week. I won’t get a chance to A/B them until at least Sunday. The S08 is very close in tuning to the original short bus mod, which I did to my S12 a while back. I think the Explorer is going to be smoother, but I am looking forward to the planar sped in that low pinna tuning with the S08.

That explains why I find most V-shaped sets too bright for metal. Most of the metal I listen to is from the 80s and 90s ( Iron Maiden and Metallica ). I listen to far more classic and prog rock, plus some yacht rock when the mood strikes, but those are mostly pre-1990, and sound mixing was taken more seriously in all three of those genres.

Wanted to say the first part, and thanks for comfirming that Juzear was also them.

Samoan metal. I like the percussion on this one the most.

The first unit I bought had some issues with the cable or something, and it didn’t sound good at all. I reached out to the seller on Amazon, and they sent me a replacement. This one sounds fine, but it’s not better than the Chu II. Honestly, it just sounds okay. When I consider the price, I’d say it’s good, but it’s definitely not as good as the Delci, 4U, or EA500 LM. There’s a noticeable difference in sound quality between them.

Metal is never the same to me after listening to these guys.

Also yeah, I am waiting for the Letshuoer S08s to arrive, and give this song a whirl to listen to with it in my ears at some point.
