Do IEMs need a proper setup of DACs &/or AMPs &/or DAPs to perform properly? My $40 pair of Beyerdynamic DTX 102 iE Earphones is outperforming these headphones...
The highs are ear-piercing, there's hardly any bass (probably because I can't play them loud enough without giving myself tinnitus due to the highs...) and the sound comes and goes if you move the jack around at all...
I'm so disappointed that these $140 headphones are doing this poorly. I couldn't even get a functioning cable?

As with many other reviewers online, I found that the tips that come with these do not fit particularly well, causing the lack of balance you describe. However, once you manage to get a good seal, they actually sound pretty good, not amazing, but certainly decent value for $140.
As for the problem with them cutting out whenever you move the jack, that is typical of anything using MMCX connectors. Try using tweezers or a toothpick to push the pin slightly to the side to get a more consistent connection.

I've had my black A3S's for over a week now and feel pretty confident in giving them a quick review: These are some of the worst-sounding headphones I've ever heard touted as "HiFi". It's not an issue of materials or construction - they look just as good in person, and the cable is really flexible and free from microphonic effects. But the sound is fatiguing and artificial. They give me a headache and it's not due to the awkward fit. The highs are too pronounced and the lows, though plenty loud, sound like a subwoofer coated in maple syrup. I listen to a number of genres and have favorite headphones for each. These are pretty much awful at everything. I'm still 100% satisfied with massdrop, especially after scoring a pair of amazing HEM-8's in the NuForce grab bag (seriously, they sound fantastic, even for hip-hop/electronic). But since folks like Skullbunny were asking about the A3s, no they really aren't any good.

Came to see how people like them because mine are really disappointing... My almost 1-year-old pair of Beyerdynamic DTX 102 iE Earphones that are supposedly of trash build quality (a lot of people are having problems with earbuds conking out, jacks breaking, etc.) are outperforming them.
What are you running them off of because I can't get any bass without giving myself immediate-onset tinnitus due to the ear piercing highs... I'm only plugging them into my PC and LG G3 phone but they shouldnt need an expensive setup to outperform a $40 pair of in-ear headphones, I would imagine.
Do these headphones not work well if they're not powered well or used with a proper setup of DACs &/or AMPs &/or DAPs?
CUSTOMER SUPPORT .... Please respond!! You have not replied to my request. I'm missing the translucent, yellow-lined tips.
What's the difference between the LZ-A3 and the LZ-A3S?

Did you get anywhere with this? I am in the same boat.
OK so the drop says it's for the LZ-A3 then the note about checkout says the black version is LZ-A3s and the pictures show the LZ-A3s in black. Then after joining the drop and selecting the black version the picture there shows the LZ-A3 in black. So what the hell are they?
Somedudeman
So I ordered LZ-A3's instead of the LZ-A3S? What's the difference?
The picture shows these come with the translucent tips with medium-sized yellow opening ( the same as with the A2S). I got the red-lined ones, but not the yellow. Did anyone else?
Anyone know the mW range of these? 120 db spl means nothing I have found.

The black color is sold out!! Guess ill wait for the LZ A3S version
daren
What's that?
Head over to Head-Fi.org for their impressions. I don't own either but ordered the LZ-A3s based off this thread. http://www.head-fi.org/t/800601/lz-a3-impressions-and-discussion-thread/660
Any difference between the lz a3s and the lz a3 ?
Cauky
so many people asked that. Go through the pages.
Hey everyone. I would want to know what IEMs really are. I know musicians use it on stage for their purposes but can it also be used by general music listeners. And if yes then how is it any different from your in-ear headphones or any other earphones/headphones for that matter.

Haha and this is why I should always check what my fat thumb has typed.
brent.k
In the name of Satan please help me Brent.
Are these eartips SpinFit eartips? They look extremely identical. If they are, that's bang for your buck already!
How do these compare with the shure 215?
orangeju1ce
Just received mine and these can't compare to my Shure se215 sorry. Though I quite like the look of these they're let down by comfort and I found the lows to be distorted!
brent.k
I felt the same way but after sufficient burn in and changing out the ear tips they sound great!
I picked up the A3s from Amazon last night. They now have a promotion on these dropping the price to $118. When I added the item to my cart they doubled the discount so I got them for 67.20 shipped. I just checked and unfortunately they appear to have fixed the error. Anyone else get in on that deal?

There isn't a code. They apply the discount when you add the item to your cart (LZ A3 & A3s only). The A3 is fulfilled by Amazon. If you're a prime member you'll have them in a few days. The A3s ship from China, so those won't be so speedy to deliver. I'm in the US and they will arrive about about the time this drop completes. I'll say this though, I ordered the A3s and had a shipping confirmation in a few hours. A3s https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01IVZ8FNY A3 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01CERWT4Q

Thanks buddy, already ordered.
does anyone has this particular set of earpiece as well? i'm currently using a sennheiser IE8 and really love the sound signature of the tight low ends and massive sound stage. how does this compare?

Very true I think I would prefer to spend similar money on a pair of dual arm drivers from a brand I know or can find decent reviews on, that being said as far a design and looks I find these to be very appealing!
jonyeoo
I have IE8's and these have a slightly different groove but very similar. The Sennheisers are more comfortable and have slightly wider sound stage but these are very good once burned in as well.
the tl;dr of Head-Fi is basically that these are good once you replace the stock cable.
Senny
Not anymore. In the very first batches (I was one of these) the cable was indeed sucky, but LZ send everyone who bought one the new updated cable that is now standard, for free afterwards. I was surprised about this level of customer service. So, I would say: the current stock cable is fine. No need to upgrade unless you go balanced ;-)
So the black ones are just plain A3. I have to think about it
Talan7
What's the difference?
Talan7
The black ones are the A3S. Better bass and more open sound
These or ve monk plus?
derhp
I am looking foreword to receiving my monks as much as the next fellow, I don't think they are going be the best thing I've ever heard, nor where they designed to be. The monks are amazing value for your money, just don't expect them to compete with something that's twenty-six times their price. The VE ZEN ($148) would be a far more appropriate comparison. Even then, you'd be comparing IEMs (inner-ear monitors) to earbuds. Kinda apples to oranges anyway.
The black ones say they are the lza3s. Is that true?

The black ones are the A3S. That's an image error on our end, sorry about that!

What's the difference between the LZ-A3 and the LZ-A3S?
How does the bass on these compare with FLC8S?
These certainly are beautiful IEM's though i have to wonder how they stand up to something like the Dunu titan 5 and how comfortable they are. Those metal ridges look a little uncomfortable.
