ZP800G delivers a very nice modern mix-ready sound which has a slightly compressed mid range character
with plenty of energy that delivers a full-bodied quality. This is balanced against a distinct upper-mid presence
which has been shaped to give a nice clarity and clean diction without over-emphasizing the sibilant region. Above that is an open and airy top end that brings a silky smoothness to breaths, and the overall impression is of a larger-than life voice with a well-focused 3D quality.
