I've spent some time with the Zen 2 and holy cow... Clarity, for a 2-driver IEM, is off the charts. Build, accessories, comfort, and sound is excellent. I'm surprised more people aren't talking about these. For $300, it's easy to recommend them. There are only 2 caveats that I've found with the sound:
  1. There is some minor sibilance with certain songs. I can't stress the minor part enough. It's not an issue for me but if you're especially treble sensitive then it's something to consider. Treble extension isn't the best I've heard but it's still very good for a 2-driver IEM.
  2. BA bass. With simple music, like many pop songs, the sound is on the warm side of neutral. With busier music, the bass starts to disappear into the background and the sound becomes more neutral. This is an issue with every 1-2 driver BA IEM I've ever heard. The issue starts to fix itself when there are 3 or more drivers. Still, this is also a fairly minor issue and it doesn't exhibit itself as dramatically as other good 2-driver implementations such as in the Jays Q-Jays ($300 USD). Also, bass extension isn't the best. It's good, but not great. The bass, while nice in quantity, has very little impact. This is another thing BA drivers tend to struggle with.
For example, the Zen 2 sounds warm with: Swim - Fickle Friends Hold Steady - Kacey Johansing The Mother We Share - CHVRCHES I O U - You Me At Six The bass and lower midrange start to deplete, making the tonal balance more of a neutral with busier tracks like: Boston - Augustana Come On - Green River Ordinance Not the American Average - Asking Alexandria The Way of the Fist - Five Finger Death Punch Welcome to the Black Parade - My Chemical Romance Disease - Beartooth

FYI, for those who are considering the 4s, there's a sale on these at InEarz website that's actually cheaper than the drop.

I'm not sure what Cha'an Buddhism has to do with earbuds. It would perhaps be more culturally appropriate to call these Catechism 2 and Catechism 4. Or maybe the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost if they are a three way design. These are not IEMs btw. They are earphones or earbuds. IEMs are IN EAR MONITORS as opposed to floor wedges. IEMS are used by musicians, public speakers and sometimes broadcast talent. They are not designed for listening to your iPhone.

plenty of IEMs can be driven by DAPs, or even lowly phones

These are legitimate IEMs, based on the same design as the custom InEarz Audio monitors, but placed into a universal fit shell. They will outperform just about anything on the market, and because of the ADEL Technology, they will be safer for your ears. You can use them with any phone, including the new iPhones with the headphone adapter. Musicians can plug them directly into their wireless belt pack, and audiophiles can plug them into their DAC. They have been tested and proven for live music, audio mixing, and just all around listening enjoyment.

I would splurge. The 2s are awesome, but the 4s provide a little extra overall range and detail.

I’m very interested in the Zen 4. Unfortunately the budget won’t allow for it this time around.
I hope these will drop again.

Really wish it didn't have ZEN on it with that terrible typeface. Might as well be a tacky yin-yang symbol.

I was hesitant about this as well, but putting these in your ears will put you in a state of Zen. Sorry, had to say it.

At $299, the Zen 2 is the most affordable IEM using the ADEL system. It also happens to be a great IEM.

The more I look the more I want.... A bargain deal to get some Adel technology at this price point.
