Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

  1. F4yze
    After using the kz upgrade cable with the memory wire removed for a while more (the copper colored version), I did find it to irritate my ears. Although it is very light, the cable is thin so even a tiny bit of pressure over prolonged periods of time will result in the skin hurting. I'll try to either get used to it or find a solution. I still think it's better than with the memory wire intact, however.

    My KZ ZS5v1 set has mysteriously disappeared. monkaS

    (I paid €20 for them so can't be too disappointed, maybe I can get a V2 for a similar price if anyone finds a link? :eyes:)

    Probably that`s the case. Those examples I gave are right away too much for my hearing sensitivity with boosted treble or treble spike issues IEMs.
    When I get time to go through treble-rich songs, will post some more examples.

    Atm I think I will jump off KZ train for a while and try DM5 as my next IEM... atm ZS6 impressions are just too contraverse and price compared to other positive feedback IEMs too high. I`m happy with my ZS5v1, though wish it had graphene bass driver for more tight&punchy&detailed lows.

    Benjie K9 (As pointed out it doesn't have separate volume controls but I use the E07 to control volume anyway).

    Anyone got an accurate measure of the ZS6 nozzle diameter? Want to order a big ol' bag of foamies from Penon but I need to make sure they have the size right!

    wow, just imagine the distortion created by stringing 14 of anything together. Only thing good about that idea might be if you just love the smell of burning electronics.

    5.4-5.7 mm. You need the t400/t500 size.

    Buy a green pair and a black one, switch the fronts, sell the one you like least.

    I don't get severe irritation from the upgrade cable, but it does rub occasionally and I've been pondering throwing a piece of shrink wrap without a memory wire over the same area where the memory wire used to be.

    Haven't done anything about it just yet though, so it's still just an idea in my head thus far :shrug:

    See what really bugs me about it is that Fiio apparently fixed it in the Q1 with a thin sheet of conductive plastic and better grounded shell... why is this so much to ask? :shrug:

    Heck, people say it's the MAX9722 chip, but my little BT receiver uses the same chip completely unshielded and is impervious to EMI... guess they're running it in differential input mode or something? :shrug:
