Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

  1. Otto Motor
    With all respect, but I have never heard of a decent Chifi HEADphone. There are always good and cheap non-Chifi alternatives available: the mentioned Koss KS75 but also the Koss PortaPro and the new Koss KPH30i, several Sennheiser models (on sale), some AKGs (for US/Canada: cheap at Costco), the fabulous Phillips SHP9500S...but if somebody really wants mediocre, there is always Skullcandy, Urbanears, Monster...and Teufel for Germans.

    Even Skullcandy has a couple reasonable headphones.

    In that case, I recommend that you wait for the release of the KZ YZ40. Problem solved.

    Should I mention Hifiman?

    of course... although I never get to hear those because they are never comfortable for me...

    My husband has three.

    Is Superlux Chinese? I love my Superlux HD 681 EVO

    +1 for the SHP9500S. Best $60 open-back evar. :metal: :metal:

    Well, believe it or not, that's the original reason I even bought the KZ LP3.

    The headband is OK I guess. It's equal to dollar-store quality. The plastic is very brittle. That's one of the challenges in trying to merge them with the KSC75 (while maintaining some cup rotation abilities.

    At the end of the day, it's gonna be way easier and cheaper to just get the parts express headphones (or go to your local dollar store). Because those are 100% direct fit, and only cost a few dollars.

    That's not what I meant. I don't lump Hifiman in with cheap no-name Chifi stuff; I don't think anybody does. it is a high-end brand name, founded in New York, with distribution center in Illinois and warehouse in Delaware - and worldwide distribution centres. The fact that the headquarters moved to China makes it as much Chifi as Sennheiser. And both are equally expensive.

    I was referring to cheap headphones by more or less obscure companies as Chifi that ship from Chinese sellers directly to us customers - which may take weeks - not three days.

    There has never been the need for me to order cheap headphones from China as I always got excellent deals here.
