    Are you going to do a driver swap? You can get replacement drivers from another IEM or get them very cheap on Aliexpress. It will fit 8mm-10mm drivers (although 10mm drivers requires more work).

    So the vido earbuds drivers would fit the ZS3? Wow. Those buds are extremely cheap you can get them for $2 a pop. But is it recommend to use an earbud driver and put it on am IEM shell?

    I am itching to place my spare ZST's driver into my defective ZS3 shell. Just don't know how to remove the zst's driver from it's shell though. :wink:

    I have no clue what size the vido drivers are.

    Keep in mind, for easiest swapping you're going to need a driver with a "cover" to attach some sort of sound tube to. Or else you're going to have to make some sort of cover (maybe 3D printed). Earbud drivers usually don't have this.

    Here's what I'm talking about (ie look at the front of the driver).

    Cover/'funnel' to attach sound tube (don't know what the actual name of this is):

    No cover to attach sound tube:

    @CoiL is the resident ZS3 driver swap expert though - he's already swapped drivers into his ZS3 and even upgraded the sound tube by replacing the crap heat shrink tubing with a nice metal nozzle:

    That is just sheer desperation for a bottle opener or a beer, not sure which. :astonished:

    Just read the http://headflux.de/knowledge-zenith-kz-zs6/ review (i translated the link in google). I did not even know that the zs6' design was 99,99% copied from the $1099,-- earbuds (pricefactor of x36,6). [​IMG]I thought it was funny, chi-fi copycats at it's finest!

    I do not mind, like it is my first chi-fi so I initially assumed they copied alot and it turns out they do sometimes.
