    Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

    I've got the KZ VX10 coming tomorrow. Anyone have any tips on setting them up with an LG V60 and Poweramp? I'm a happy owner of the ZSX and ZAX. With a little EQing they sound great and are a great value, which is why I decided to stay with KZ for TWS. Any reason why I should return them an...

    Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

    the ZSX is that cheap chifi IEM :). i wish it did have mmcx though. ZSX is great for working out. not heavy, stays in my ears, and kills most wind noise on my bike. it is awesome.

    Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

    I have the KZ ZSX and love them. I've got the tips figured out, and now would like to get a better cable that comes with a mic (bonus for volume up/down buttons too). Can anyone recommend something of the sort? I've searched far and wide, and can't seem to find anything decent besides the cables...

    LG V20 Sound Quality

    To get high impedance all the time you only have to root your phone and modify one file (mixer-paths). If you want the best from your device rooting is essential.

    Sony's New 2014 flagship IEM - XBA Z5

    Is the Z5 the best option if I have the Z7 and am very happy with them? I have an LG V10/v20, and the Z7 is fantastic. I also have custom UE TF10, but they just aren't cutting it for me after I got the Z7. Thanks.

    i get that in both v10 and v20, but i think it has to do with the external SD card.

    LG V10 : New ESS Chipped Flagship Android Phone from LG

    Anyone that's scared to replace the headphone jack shouldn't be. It is dead easy to do, the part is cheap, and it fixes your issue. I've done it twice.

    LG V10 : New ESS Chipped Flagship Android Phone from LG

    My experiences: I found viper disabled the amp, but not the DAC if I remember correctly. I was a big viper fan, but once I figured that out, I had to dump it. I also don't like the limiter on viper that you can't control. So I installed the PowerAmp Alpha and dug into its settings and eq...

    LG V10 : New ESS Chipped Flagship Android Phone from LG

    I just tried this with my settings in hi-fi DAC as a normal device. It increased the sound, but it just sounded a little different. I felt like there was a limiter or something. Then I did the cable trick to set it to aux, and I feel like there's more oomph. Is this possibly because more power...

    19 custom IEM/TF10/Shure/IE8 cables reviewed (Effect Pearl, Apollo, & Odin added 3/20/13)

    Do the UE custom replacement cables work with the TF10? http://www.logitech.com/en-us/custom-in-ear-monitors/accessories   The second row are for customs before September 2010. The connector looks the same, and it seems like a good bargain.
