I'm guessing the fact that you briefly tried them but didn't get around to an in-depth comparison means that they didn't blow you away?
No, don't get me wrong, they're really good. But, I wouldn't call them giant killers either. There's just too much competition to call them giant killers. But, they are even stronger than the man of steel, meaning, is the heaviest and strongest housing I have out of every in-ear earphone I own. You could literally kill someone with these.....guarantee to last you a life time!

....also, they have the weirdest dynamic driver and tweeter system that I know so far, but it works!

Are they better than the K3 Pro / K3 HD?

Hey guys, can you suggest, i'm looking for something under 25-30$, with good fit and high clarity, especially interested in natural and detailed female vocals, bass is not important.
V'been sweeping through Vidal-Loomis and some others reviews, as i can tell, Einsear T2, SEAHF AWK-009, Urbanfun Hi-Fi can fit the bill, but which of them most analytical sounding, and will they be an upgrade from ZST?
I have ZS3 and ZST, ZS3 is too boomy and ZST is pretty good, although slightly harsh to my ears, and not so fit and isolating as ZS3.

There's also the Ty Hi Z G3, it's like the Seahf with wider soundstage and less mid bass. It's part open backed but still has some isolation. ZS5 aren't great for isolation.

Haven't had a chance to burn them in, but at first listen? I personally doubt they are going to blow the PRO or the HD out of the water.....and their weight hurts all expectations for them to be giant killers. Just one hour wearing them, and I couldn't handle their weight anymore.

of the ones you mention, the urbanfun is the most "analytical", in the sense of being very detailed, altho it's still musical and does very well with voices and has good isolation. i rate it and the similar einsear a notch higher than the zst, which isn't quite as natural sounding.

The KZ and Hybrids are bassy but much better options are the Boarseman KR49i or QKZ DM300 - the Boarseman being my favourite of the two. There are reviews of both on my site (link in signature)

I checked your reviews on KR49i, DM300 and Loomis' suggestion of Memt X5 and noted them. But I see that you have reviewed a lot of earphones that I have. So please tell me what would be the best choice considering:
1) Vivo Xe800 is my daily driver as I love the clarity and forward mids, and female voice presentation without becoming too siblant.
2) **** 4in1 doesn't see much use as the mids and vocals are too laid back for my liking, and it is a bit too thin.
3) Kz ZST is too sibilant to use.
4) I love KZ atr and hd9, and use them often. I like their mids and presentation of voices.
5) Don't like the Tennmak Pros as they don't seem to have good seperation and details in the mids imo. So not gonna risk it with dulcimer.
6) Also don't like the KZ zs2 for similar reasons as pros.
7) I don't have anything bassy for reference. :p

I'm probably looking for a bassy earphone that has forward mids and good seperation. Something with the clarity of xe800 with more subbass. What would be the best choice from the three?
