Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

  1. Slater
    Bass filters are the shiny gold-plated ones. They are a tad shorter, and have a smaller opening at the end. If you look inside of the filter, there's a piece of black foam stuck in.

    The other filters (called alto by KZ) are dull (not shiny) brass colored, a tad longer, and have a larger opening at the end. If you look inside of the filter, there's nothing inside (just empty space).

    Hope that helps

    The point I was making is the variables involved when considering "natural" sound. In the examples I provided one can clearly detect the difference in vocal positioning. The reason I always post a given track in reviews and posts is because I want the reader to have full access to what I describe.

    Suppose I reference a track (Ella Fitzgerald's "Basin Street Blues") in my post or review and I write "it sounds as though I am in the second row and Ella is singing to me". If the reader accesses file#1 below then he/she might be able to identify with my observations. However, if the reader looks up Ella Fitzgerald's "Basin Street Blues" on his/her own and listens to file#2 then my description would be confusing because file#2 (which is "Basin Street Blues" sung by Ella Fitzgerald) sounds as though I am perhaps 80 to 100 feet away from Ella and she's singing to a crowded room and not to me per se. Where the microphone was placed during the recording is the defining factor.

    File#1:


    My original comments were directed toward early jazz and early orchestral/symphony recordings.

    There is an endless debate regarding recording methods of three of the main houses:
    ("multi-microphone recording" better known as "multi-micing")

    Deutsche Grammophon (DG)
    RCA/Victrola
    CBS (Columbia)

    .....and what effects said methods had on the final product.

    I'd love to have the vocals of #1 with the instruments of #2!

    Anyways, thanks for sharing this. I definitely see what you mean about the differences.

    my ZS6 came today and the right side connector is loose... tried to put instant glue on it and it went into a pin hole -_- luckly i cleaned mostly, however i haven't found a solution. What's the name of those screws?

    I've modded them by tapping one of the BA from each side, it sounds miles better now (i used glue and a small ball of paper), and rubber tips from vsonic.

    I did glued all the 4 BA's and it ruined the sound, fortunatley i could wipe the glue ball (mostly)...

    i just want to solve that loose connection but opening this seems to be a challenge.

    Oh, I see. It was the 2nd video.

    Wow, you are a TV star LOL

    So what were the IEMs you showed on TV for $13.50? I wasn't able to identify them. They any good? :)

    I had been a TV star all along :)...this one ends up with beer and wine as always.


    The Calgary coverage was longer but harder to find.

    The earphones shown on TV were the Joyroom JR-E103. Well made but problematic sounding. See audiobudget.

    Just ordered a pair of black no-mic ZSR. First KZ purchase.

    Hoping it lives up to the hype! I expect DUNU-2000 level performance for $30! :)

    Yeah, gluing all 4 BA's would change the issue from too much treble to no treble

    Cant tell if you are trolling.... You can open the shell with removing by using a torx screwdriver which will then give you a better angle to the 2 pin connector port but if your connectors fit; just leave it alone.

    i'm afraid it gets loosen or "fall" inside the case.
