    Anyone have any experience with the CCA bluetooth iem's? The port on the side looks like a mic port and if they were able to make a usable good quality mic for phone calls, I'd be intriged.

    I had a left side of their first bluetooth venture (forgot its model #) go bad and they sent me another single IEM. As long as you order from the official KZ store, it seems their customer service is A+.

    Dang, these aren't even really high heavy or sibilant! You must be very sensitive to treble D:

    Mine is also the right side that has essentially 'shattered'. I much prefer the recessed connector.

    I've been comparing the ZSX and Starfield for about 36 hours now and they are honestly very similar, but I'm likely going to make the Starfield my new DD and let me tell you why. Both the ZSX and Starfield have a very similar sound signature, except the Starfield reach higher, and while the...

    I think the Starfield is going to push my KZ ZSX into storage 😳. Love the Starfield high extension.

    Anyone tried those BGVP hybrid electrostatic IEM's? Also, new issues with KZ Z1, often the pins dont align making it so each earbud isnt charged, or one isn't charged. KZ is still in their infancy with BT, would recommend avoiding unless you want clearly beta products.

    Z1 still having connectivity issues, honestly would pass if that bothers you. Its not always the same connectivity issue too, lots of bugs. They do sound "KZ tuned", but it has a really big low end, too much so, and it's quite muddy. Overall, ok. Lip on the charging case is too hard to open...

    Yeah still wouldn't recommend KZ TWS. Their case often just doesn't charge one of the IEM's, they don't pair sometimes, they have intermittent skip issues where you need to re-pair with the phone again. Meh. They have the sound pretty good, but they really need to focus on seamless BT...

    ZS10 Pro to ZSX is a worthy upgrade ^ Anyway, I got the KZ Z1's and I'm having a problem now where it seems like the KZ's are so good at transmit/receive that they're overloading while I have my phone close. Once I walk away from it, the connection is so much better. So we went from bad signal...

    Seriously though. The ZSX lows absolutely go, and they aren't overpowered, just....great reach. Ridiculously good even with stock tips. I never am disappointed with these no matter what genre I'm listening to.

    I just bought 2 pairs so I might give it a try on a pair. I'll post if I do.

    ZSX are quite better than the TRN V90 in my opinion after about a month of rotating quarantine use. I originally thought they were similar but the ZSX just deliver a wider soundstage, better deeper reaching low end, and are more refined with no sibilance anywhere. TRN V90 are good, but ZSX is...

    Pretty much exactly the same. Both can reproduce very low and are detailed.

    Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

    Got the TRN V90 and they're not so different of a sound signature from the ZSX, though I think the V90 is slightly more sibilant up in the female vocal ranges. ZSX edges out on soundstage. A/B I think the ZSX is more forward with better clarity and also extends higher while still being...

    Nope. There are definitely 2 versions of the ZS6. The v1's were treble screamers, v2's have that pulled back A LOT. New does not sound the same as the old. I bought a new pair thinking they'd be the same and I was very disappointed. They kind of sound the same as everything else now lol.

    I absolutely loved them with just foams. They took a few days to get used to, but they had such a giant soundstage with great separation. Probably my favorite memories of all KZ's. I lost one side of my v1's, and the v2's don't sound the same at all :(

    Does anybody know if these cables work with KZ's new models with the new connector? Looks like it? Maybe? https://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/ODW3RpQY

    Any good deals today on KZ's? Finally picked up ZSX for $39 inc tax/shipping with the $5 ali and a KZ store coupon.

    Despite what anyone too invested in the hobby here says, you will not hear a difference. Cables and color make zero difference in this application except for durability and aesthetic.

    That's not how antennas work or radiate. Your ear is invisible to 2.4Ghz bluetooth. You may get antenna inefficiencies from interference with water in your body, but any good design would account for that. Even with efficiencies, light would still scatter.

    So ZSX extends higher than ZS10 Pro? Once people start complaining about highs, I know it's for me. In about 6 months those same people complaining about highs will think it's the greatest thing ever, mark my words :)

    T1 only has AAC and SBC, no aptX. AAC I cannot keep a stable bitrate and eventually it dies, SBC from my laptop and phone works fine, but pretty compressed. Does anyone with an iPhone have success using them without bad compression in the highs?

    I had the KZ T1's in and saw Tool's new song on Tidal. I thought "this should be ok". Got like 2 minutes in, put them back in the case and got the ZS10 Pro's, restarted the song :). Holy moly this song sounds absolutely amazing on the ZS10 Pro's.
