Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

    Sorry I don't buy that excuse. Sellers offer free shipping as an enticement to order from them. Just because it's 'free', doesn't mean it should be unacceptably slow. 3 months is absolutely pathetic in the 21st century.

    What's all of the crud on the R earpiece?

    Hmm...not when it ships from a slow Cargo ship across the world. Also, the Cargo ship has to be filled up. It doesn't happen overnight. I think you gotta manage your expectations a little bit.

    Further, there are many great alternatives out there with 2 day shipping. You just have to pay a little more.

    This is why I pony up the extra few bucks when it shows up on Amazon. Might cost a bit more but I'll get it in 2 days.

    Fingerprints on the box, not the earpiece.

    Yikes, good catch as I've not really even done much with them since I'm waiting on my tri-braid! Seems it was some kind of glue debris or something took a soft cloth and water and it has come off or at least my old eyes don't see it anymore?

    However I was disappointed my Gearbest pair did not come with Starline like my black pair from KZ:disappointed:

    I wanted to see what all the hype was about, so I placed an order for a KZ IEM on July 14th. I chose free shipping expecting a 1-2 month wait and it never arrived. After contacting them, the store that sold it to me was unwilling to help locate the package or send a replacement. Sometimes you don't get anything at all.

    From Aliexpress? Gerbest? What IEM if you don't mind me asking.

    I actually had all of my IEMs in my car at the Ohio CanJam - if I had known, I could have found the one you wanted and let you had a listen :)

    Hmmm, crud on the earpiece and missing the eartips? Sounds fishy...as in used.

    @Slater , they had new tips on them and as far as they looked it was factory sealed:wink:

    @AxelCloris , if you would not mind could you share that seller with this crowd?

    Did I mention I 'Hate" KZ:rolling_eyes: LOL

    It was one of KZ's cheaper models, so I wasn't out much. I took the whole situation as a learning experience.

    Had I known there were some at the meet I may have given them a demo. Maybe that'll happen at a future meet.

    According to Gearbest, my order was shipped out via Azerbaijan Air Mail. Must have been via carrier pigeon air mail...

    I tried the free shipping as an experiment for my third set of ZSTs. If they never came, I was out $8.99 and would have had to order another set for my daughter, who also has quite a few headphones/earphones and wouldn't really miss them.

    The result of the experiment? $1 to $2 is a bargain for tracked, registered shipping from China. That is what I'll use from now on.

    Yes, I don't think anybody uses cargo ships to fill retail orders, that would be really ridiculous. It would take 5-6 weeks from Asia to the USA so there'd be no way to explain how some shipments got there in around 2-3 weeks.

    Anyone else expiriancing a 400ms lag with the KZ bluetooth adapter, have tested it with both my K1 Tablet and Zuk Z2, both are showing the same lag making it only good for music, usless for anything else.
