On a serious note, after the posts a day ago with @bsoplinger regarding zs5 and zs6, tip fitment, i got home last night, reached into my shirt pocket, and pulled out a cable not with (2) ZS5 v1 ear pieces, but only 1. I am crushed, but hopeful i will find the missing 1/2 of my iem.
… My takeaway from this, next time I check to make sure the tips are secure... I'll l be sure to check the cable too!
Sorry to hear about that. Worse than my 'losing' ear tips since at least I knew to look in my ear canal

Can you guys recomend the best kz product for movie watching on mobile phone or tablets.. for daily comute...thanks!
I finally got some of my stuff...I have a ZS5 and a ZS3 (so far) I didn't like the ZS3 for movies. (lacking detail, mids...soundstage felt kinda closed in and wrong ...for movies)
the ZS5 reminds me of a semi open headphone...I would recommend it for watching movies. In fact, I usually don't like movies on IEMs, but I watched a little bit of Star Wars with these on...and then some Baby Driver...then a little bit of Guardians Of the Galaxy 2....I really liked it, I could totally see myself using these as my movie headphones sometimes! I can lay down and get more comfortable than is possible with my Phillips SHP 9500s and I don't feel like I sacrifice much sound quality.

I was looking at your ZS3s with envy for a moment and then it hit me... I have a pair on its way from GearBest. Still looking in envy because, well, they're coming from GearBest on the proverbial slow boat from China.

Any tip where to get them cheapest with delivery to China? Taobao seems to be all set on price around 40USD and seems English sites with decent prices doesn't ship to China.

OMG Slater, you are killin me Great references! But just to stay on topic, you know folks, KZ' s actually do pair very well with an inexpensive Chardonnay and oven roasted turkey.
I tried it this morning but I was disappointed. The KZs ended up as melted mess.

The wait is worth it. The only thing wrong with the ZS3s is that I have the ZS5 sitting there on my desk and they do everything the ZS3s do, but better and MORE....don't get me wrong, I love the ZS3, they are really comfortable, look cool, they sound good and they were only $8.00!
oh, and they didn't last a whole day without me modding them...I did that Slater mod where you stab it a bunch with a sewing needle until some foam pops out, seemed to brighten things up a little, so that was good

Think the ZS6 is the only one that can stand up to Roasting!
especially if you are putting it in with the turkey, I mean, a metal IEM shouldn't melt at 350 degrees, right?

Beauty.... waiting for mine for modding.
Where to get those tips? Link please?
ask and ye shall receive:

I like these a lot actually. I am using the Silicone (M) on my ZS3 and the Foam (M) on my ZS5. and they come in this cool case so all my "favorite tips" aka most likely to work on various IEMs can be in one place, instead of in the little tin I keep all my tips in. I like organization and order...which this hobby does not lend itself to, so I like having various boxes/tins to keep stuff organized in and the New Bees actually came with a really useful little case.
