Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

  1. themindfreak
    After 30 mins of listening to my ZS10 I totally agree with you. Hell this ZS10 is a true winner legit not even kidding. And if anyone is thinking I'm trying to hype the ZS10, hell yea I'm hyping it right now cause its that good. Its seriously on the level of my Sony xba n3 and nicehck hk6 and its going to be in my weekly routine.

    At least it was just a bad cable and not the ZS10 internal wiring.

    Very brief impressions of ED15 as only had a quick 30 min listen direct from s8.

    There is no piercing treble which seems like a new feature of KZ hybrids and no sibilence that i can detect.

    Bass is very north of neutral and extends down deep. It seems a little loose with some mid bass bleed at the moment but this may change.

    Mids and treble seem balanced and I would describe them as L shaped.

    Female vocals sound nice.

    Will have a good listen with my xduuo x3 tonight.

    They are really heavy and the cable is fantastic especially for the price.

    KZ ZS10 is in the house!!

    Looks really nice, but the workmanship could be better. The BAs on the ride side is a little bit slanted.

    I straight away switched to foam tips and tried it on with the upgrade cable. The foam tips is a little bit longer than the stock tips so it provides a good seal, no problem. Surprisingly the iems are not as huge as I thought, and due to the gentler contours, it's a much comfortable fit compared to my zs6. In fact, it's a very comfortable fit so far. The right side did exhibit a bit of a driver flex but hopefully it won't be a huge issue.

    Now sound wise, it's pretty damn impressive to me. Comparing to my modified zs6 (slater's washer mod and ba mod), it has a very similar sound signature right out of the box. My zs6 has a little bit more punchier bass however. Hopefully the zs10 bass would improve after a few hours of burn in . Speaking of bass, it's definitely there. Even the sub bass rumble is strong. I'm not familiar with terms like "treble roll off" so I can't be of a huge help here, but all I can say is I'm really satisfied with it, so far. Listening to Low by Mura Masa kinda hurt my ears with the zs6 even after the mod, but not so much with the zs10. Not much of a difference in terms of soundstage. Separation is a little better. Female vocals (AURORA) sounds good to me, although I'm sure there are iems that sounds better.

    Overall, it's a winner to me. Granted, I'm not an extreme audiophile by any means. My past/current iems include Carbo Basso, KZ ZS6, Tennmak Pro, Alpha and Delta AD01 (all of them leans towards being bass heavy). With such a similar sound signature to my modified zs6, I do feel like I'm wasting my money a little bit. But the tame trebles makes me feel a little better bout my purchase hahaha. The zs10 will definitely be my main driver for now. One day I may do the washer mod just for kicks. The nozzle diameter is a little bit smaller than the zs6 so the washer can't be inserted in but it does sit flushed on top.

    Audio source: LG V30 with the hifi DAC enabled, Lenovo Y50 laptop.

    Edit: On a second listen to both my zs6 and the zs10, the zs10 has way better mids to me.
