    Out of curiosity, has any of you also tried the BQ3? I'm still waiting for it to arrive but would be curious how the BQ3 and KC2 compare :beyersmile:
     
  2. Theri0n
    It has more bass according to several reviews so no go for me.

    I am almost happy with Audbos P4 bass. So KC2 is even slightly more, than I like. So, don't pay too much attention as my bass perception is pretty different from the majority, especially of the age 17-35.

    Behold, the iBasso IT01s is released. It is the upgrade version of IT01, not the plural.

    It features a Tesla magnet, carbon-nanotube(CNT) diaphragm and diamond-like carbon (DLC) dome. The old IT01 uses graphene diaphragm.

    Theme: What were they thinking? :astonished:

    The KZ company came along way of achieving some stiff competition while building it's way up to a more reputable one. But, how does one even challenge the beauty and sonic sound signature at such a low price when combining price and material. This is the very reason why we ask -What were they thinking? With Knowledge Zenith's achievement of the KZ ZSN, they just made it more difficult for other companies to challenge this very point of "Price VS Value". In reality, there's no doubt about it! At a mere $13 to $15 US dollars, other companies are asking -how can they profit at such a low price? Well, the reality is that they have a BIG FOLLOWING, whether rich, middle class, or the poor that yearn to wish to have such a "gem" can now afford a taste of hi-end/hi-class earphones giving them a higher listening experience and enjoyment. Just in design, build, and housing puts to shame even branded earphones costing much more at their own and much higher target price. I, myself hope that this will be a new trend for KZ and hope that they follow this very trend. You can be sure that the KZ ZSN are going to be hard to beat in "five different ways" -looks, design, build, sound, and price!

    After finally reaching 200 hours of playtime, they easily reached the top of my list! :trophy::point_left::wink:

    RATING CHART Highest Rating Possible: 10

    PSR = PRO SOUND RATING
    SS = SOUND SIGNATURE
    BQ = BUILD QUALITY
    OP = OVERALL PACKAGE

    BQ: 10
    OP: 7
    OV: 10
    COMMENTS: When purchasing with the light copper cables (or clear/silver cables), you get a glimpse of what could have been a very expensive hi-end signature model at a killer price! No doubt about it!...Simply top of my list!

    Picked up this HiFiHear triple driver IEM for $45 (after 10% coupon) from amazon https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07HFZP3HL.

    Pleasantly surprised by the sound coming out from this IEM .. comparable to my BGVP DMG, with slightly recessed base. I think this is a fairly good buy for the price.

    Whoa, that's pretty high praise.... So, similar to BGVP DMG in sound signature, except for a little less bass?
     
  13. mbwilson111
    It is not on Amazon UK
     
  14. trellus
    Dang, that's a bummer... it's also available on AliExpress as I recall, about the same price, I believe.
     
  15. fljoe
    yes .. that is what I felt. Sources used were my Onkyo DP-X1, iPhone XS with Audioquest Black streaming Tidal MQA with mConnect app, Dell XPS laptop with iFi Nano DAC streaming from Tidal desktop.

    I don't have any professional equipment to do measurements .. it is what I heard on the IEMs. Give it a shot and you won't be disappointed. Worst case you can send it back to amazon.

    BTW .. there is a black Friday sale on this on AliXpress for $33.75
