    Better be careful about their housings. Pretty unusual and may not fit every ear.

    Nah, i guess it's gonna be red. Like the green ZSRs - they looked lighter on an advertisement pics.

    ZS3: recessed trebles with very few details
    ZST: U shaped, very well tuned, with detailed high (after 48h burn in) , very good bass
    ES3: Excellent bass, artificial voices, detailed highs but sybillant all the time (even after 80h burn in), not well tuned
    ZSR: rather V shaped, better than the very good ZST, great bass, great trebles, natural voices slightly recessed (=V shaped) compared to ZS6

    ZS5-2 & ZS6 are more technical, not for me V nor U shaped, with highs a bit agressive, even after 120h burn in.

    I recommand for you the ZSR (around 20€, sometimes 15) or The ZST (around 12€, sometimes 10)
    Price not an issue: ZSR is the best.

    Glad you enjoyed it, and yup, unless stated otherwise the pics are mine.

    While I understand the value of a scoring system, I personally do not like them. I find people reply too much on the score and not enough on the experience, passing over a good earphone if the score isn't high enough. Maybe one day I'll implement a system that I agree with, but for now my blog will remain free of any sort of rating system, sorry.

    I like them so much I have three of them. Well, two ED4s and a Z1 which sounds nearly the same, if not identical. Looks sick in black regardless.

    *Crappy old pic of the ED4/Z1 gang. Need to re-do it and some others.*

    ZSR arrived the other day. Is anyone else struggling to get tips over the nozzle? The nozzle is a fair bit larger than my other KZ's, it seems to squish the silicone making it harder and less comfy in my ears.

    Oh, and the text saying 'right' and 'left' is upside down which I'm finding quite irritating!

    True. Better use a foam tips.
    About the text upside down - really annoying s..t.

    Notice another one of the 1+1 hybrids - fixed cable (but kinda premium looking with metal) and probably an earbud type large 13-15mm dynamic driver (that's how it looks to me, especially with the large vent on the top and probably front as well).
