Zeitgeist – La Dolce Vita
The exterior of the Zeitgeist – La Dolce Vita attempts to reflect the classic Italian lifestyle. Between the various acrylic layers are brass or gold-colored layers that, when combined with the case’s dark blue-black acrylic, evoke mountains, beaches, and the sea. The aesthetics of La Dolce Vita reflect pleasure and a slower pace of life.
Aesthetic design and Build Quality
The Zeitgeist employs two of these balanced armature drivers. So far, the HEAROS Pro II is the only 2-BA in-ear. It was also a race against the flagship.
The included cable with a 3.5mm stereo jack is basic, but it should have served its purpose by now. It is quite unobtrusive, but the quality is excellent.
In terms of design, the InEar-Monitoring in-ears, and thus the zeitgeist, are pretty much the classic, generic in-ear monitor. With its unusual design, the new Zeitgeist brand elevates this classic shape to a new level.
There are no air pockets, burrs, or other irregularities in the acrylic housing. Everything appears to be of high quality and robust construction, and the shape appears to be nearly perfect.
The included standard cable comes in either black or clear. It is a professional cable designed for tough touring use. The cable is very thin and very flexible. Microphony exists in the supply lines, but it is limited and does not play a significant role. The cable falls freely, with no memory or spring effect.
Zeitgeist – La Dolce Vita Sound Quality
The Zeitgeist La Dolce Vita’s sound is based on classic in-ear monitors for musicians, so the tonality is balanced and can be described as neutral. Essentially, the entire frequency response is balanced, but not monotonous.
But wait, there’s more! Rather, the Zeitgeist is a very relaxed in-ear that is completely homogeneous and musical in playback. Fortunately, the sobriety and sterility common in neutral headphones are absent here.
However, depending on your listening habits, it may require some hearing adjustment, as is always the case with linearly tuned headphones. Because if you’re used to heavy bass or headphones with a bathtub signature, the first impression can be depressing.
If you make it through the adjustment period, you will learn to appreciate the irresistible benefits. These are most noticeable when playing back with complete relaxation and fatigue-free precision and attention to detail.
Last Thought About Zeitgeist – La Dolce Vita
Zeitgeist’s first litter has already established itself as a first-rate in-ear with accurate and precise characteristics. Tonally slightly warmed up, but extremely honest and with a pleasant, long-term suitable tuning.
The fit is fantastic, and the craftsmanship of the one-of-a-kind piece is simply outstanding.
Even though the simple configuration of two balanced armature drivers is unspectacular in comparison to current multi-driver hybrid systems, the sound is not.
The Zeitgeist manages to deliver first-rate performances in all genres with the help of a very subtle emphasis on fun.
