Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

    You're right about that...I was having a heck of a time trying to get something that felt right ...it was a small epiphany realizing I have to treat them differently. And, yeah, I have the New Bee smalls on my work IEMs, and then the M/L - left/ right thing going on for my ZS5 and ZS3 so all the parts of the buffalo are being used.
    it does not look cool : IMG_20171129_163816_886.jpg

    If it sounds good it doesn't matter how it looks

    sounding good is primary....looking cool isn't even secondary or tertiary...but I like when things look cool.

    There has been a lot of talk in here about the looks and colors of various iems...and,in other threads about buds and headphones. For me it is part of it. I always look in the mirror when I get a new thing. LOL.

    I bet I am not the only one:)

    ...listening to Radiohead right now...

    Hello, so I'm looking for iems and I've settled on getting the KZ zs6. I'm looking for details, imaging and clarity, it seems to match with these points. At first I intended to get the hf5 from etymotic but they are too expensive. The KZ actually look better to me, and everything else interests me.

    I'm thinking of getting the upgraded silver cable as well as the OSTRY OS100~300 tips to tame the treble. I'll be using the iems with a portable dac and amp ( nothing fancy but should perfom decently )

    Could someone help me with that choice, right tips? right iem choice? Thanks in advance.

    of course you're not the only...I'm a beard-faced tile setter and I still checked so see how cool I looked in my ZS3s.
    I have some vintage Pioneer SE305 that I love but I don't wear them out of the house because I look like I am in Katamari Damacy with them on.

    It is hard to tell someone else what would work best for them, but the items you listed sound like a great package to me.

    Downside: if you have smaller ears, the ZS6 might be uncomfortable. The exaggerated highs take a little time to get used to, although the foam tips you listed go a long way towards taming the treble cannon effect.

    These are pretty amazing earphones for the price. I think you'll be happy with them.

    Took out foams and meshes.... unfortunately, I can`t agree with ZS3 getting so much better . It is still V-shaped, warmish/soft and little muddy bass, boosted highs, littlebit recessed mids compared to highs&lows. They are not bad sounding though, but still pretty mediocre.
    By the sound and looks - no, I don`t think they are same drivers at all.

    So what's your plan with them?

    Does anybody has made a sound comparison of ZS5v1, ZS5v2 vs ZS6?

    Frequency response graphs on www.thephonograph.net shows that ZS6 has a very similar profile to ZST. What does it means? Is it more V-shaped?

    Does ZS5v2 still has the biggest soundstage, are bit cold or it is more similar to ZST too (like ZS6)?

    Interested in that question, i have curiosity in hear people compare Zs5, zs6 to Zst. Bacause at First time i skeeped Zs5, cause someone told me that he preferred Zst over Zs5, and in that thread, i almost see no one comparing them. So i have no Idea on the comparision between them. People Keep saying on the soundstage and imaging from Zs5, 6. Is It real different then Zst ?

    I am rocking the KZ Ate and i loved the stock tips that came on with them and provided me insane bass & sub bass (the silicone tips).
    Problem is they fell off and i don't know where they are. So i got on Ali foam tips by KZ and they are giving nice sound sig but bass isn't going low enough as with the stock tips.

    Where can i get these? i'm talking about the largest silicone tips size. (If anyone has to send me i'm willing to pay).
