About this deal

To me, it's mostly the difference of one IEM, the CRA+, being more exciting but also sounding more unnatural. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Though I started this hobby seeking the former, I’ve grown inclined towards the latter (within reason of course). Modern, as in it incorporates the improvements and learnings we’ve seen in sound and frequency response in recent years.

Female vocal are slightly too shouty, too raspy for my tastes (and yes, here, the lack of upper-treble does affect the timbre of vocals). They feature a detachable, braided audio cable, meaning you can swap them out based on your preferences.Most are me-too products in the race to the bottom with the usual trade-offs in tuning against its peers. Imaging performance varies between units, but this is a promising sign that TRUTHEAR, as a relatively young manufacturer, may produce headphones with quality control and ergonomics in mind in the future. The inner side facing the ear concha has no vent surprisingly, but this does allow you to better appreciate the diaphragm and suspension used on the larger driver. Moondrop KXXS: Unfortunately, I do not have an Aria for comparison, but the KXXS is almost identical for most intents and purposes.

The entire treble range is also slightly over-emphasized, meaning the low-mids often sound slightly hollow compared to the exaggerated bass and treble. Truthear Zero is the latest in the line of Crinacle-tuned IEMs and has a rather unique dual-driver setup where one driver acts as a true “woofer”.Moreover, the packaging reveals a wide selection of silicone and foam ear tips, a pouch, nozzle cover replacements, and a “ waifu“. It is the first time that IEM provide me with a sense of externalization (out of your head experience). They come with a carrying pouch to help keep your cables tangle-free, but it won't protect the buds from substantive damage. For most people, waifus are just a fun and casual thing, but with some, it can have a romantic undertone.

Love it or hate it, this type of aesthetic clearly has a sizeable market (something about a positive correlation between audiophiles and anime aficionados comes to mind) and it's selling.AS16 Pro have a big housing compared to Zero:Red, but a similar shape, so they’re equally comfy to users with regular ear sizes.
