For anyone looking to get their feet wet in the world of portable, high-quality audio, the Zorloo Z:ero offers killer sound for the price. This unique earphone has a Wolfson DAC/amp built discreetly into the cable, and features a micro-USB connector instead of the standard 3.5-millimeter jack. This helps transfer digital information to the integrated DAC (bypassing the DAC in your source device), and provides more power, clarity, and detail than your typical headphone out. Praised by Sound Guys’ Adam Molina for its great design and accurate bass, the Z:ero is compatible with most major Android devices.
Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice of colors between Gold and Red.
The Z:ero’s appearance has a solid, premium feel, complete with glossy aluminum enclosures and a thick cable subtly striped in silver and red. Mid-cable, the DAC/amp matches the driver housing in color and style, and features three buttons for volume and basic playback controls. For the best results, Zorloo recommends maxing out the volume on your source device, and making adjustments using the earphone’s control module.
