This unit was bought with my own money, I will try to be as objective as possible and being a common...
Pros: - The most “neutral” KZ as of today.
- Clean, neutral sound.
- Quick, clean, detailed bass response.
- Open, detailed, relatively neutral mids.
- Airy, open highs.
- Highly technical sounding IEM under 150 USD.
- Very good isolation.
- Very good build quality.
- Very good stock eartips. It is softer compared to their early version of stock eartips.
- Easy to be driven to its full potential, but scales well on a better source.
- Highly customizable sound signature to your liking. 8 switches per side!
Cons: - BA Timbre is not for everyone.
- Very unforgiving on poorly recorded and mastered tracks (not a con for me, but some may find it so).
- Slight upper mids peaks can be heard on some tracks (subjective).
- Lacks a manual on how to operate the switches.
- Definitely not for smaller ears.
- Might get heavy on ears for longer usage on some ears.
- Might be too sensitive on some source (more on that later).
- Critically lacking accessories. A case, more than one set of eartips, and a decent cable is a necessity for this price point.
