SHOZY Zero IEMs review
 - expatinjapan


It was pleasant to receive a set of beta SHOZY Zero IEMs in the post recently. I love wooden headphones and earphones. They have a natural, organic, smooth and lush sound. 
I was not disappointed by the SHOZY Zero they seemed to tick all the right boxes straight off the bat.


Build

The construction is very simple, nothing too complicated about how they are put together. 
Simple is best, less is more and other adages to explain this concept.

The SHOZY Zero is made of (edit) ??? Wood nice and solid.

The size is great and would suit any ear canal size with the right tips.

No chin slider for fans of the old chin sliders.


Wood everywhere, even the cable seems to look like its made of wood. 


The groove is an air pressure regulator.



Fit

The SHOZY Zero is an easy fit.
They can be worn hanging down or over the ear, I myself prefer over the ear usually as I can get a good seal and also lock the IEM in place.
Very comfortable for extended periods of time.




  Sound

The sound is well matched with the SHOZY Alien DAP and no
doubt they had a close relationship when it came to tuning these Zero IEMs.

Like the Alien DAP the sound is smooth, organic and accurate.

The SHOZY Zero is fairly flat, it does not seem to overly favor the lows, mids or the highs.

It scales up well with more volume whilst losing no accuracy and creating no distortion.
The Zero has a fast response, great separation, good width and lots of height.
Instrument separation and layering is wonderful.

The vocals are well matched to the music and are neither forward or recessed, but just right where I like them - with the music.

The SHOZY Zero reproduces the original recordings with an accuracy that belies their asking price.



SHOZY Zero frequency response.




 Value

The SHOZY Zero is priced at US$50. A reasonable price for the IEMs. They could be priced a bit higher and still be acceptable.
It`s the kind of IEM I would feel happy buying a friend for a gift, smooth, well layered, good width and height, detailed and also lush; not to mention comfortable to wear.





 Overall

The SHOZY Zero is a bargain IEM in terms of its price and performance.
Very smooth and silky, well balanced between the lows, mids and highs make this a pleasure to listen to.
It scales up well with more volume losing no accuracy and creating no distortion.
The Zero has a fast response, great separation, good width and lots of height.
Instrument separation and layering is wonderful.

It is an IEM I could listen to with pleasure for extended periods of time, laid back but without settling for less in the separation, detail, layering departments, decent width and height make this $50 IEM a possibly popular choice in the coming months after its release.






Thank you to SHOZY for sending the ZERO (beta) to Head Pie for review
