The DD in the left earpiece on my ZS10s has just failed!!!!

I always get driver flex with them when inserting them but can adjust them so they sound fine. This time though the sound completely stopped from the DD.

Absolutely gutted!! Have messaged AK Audio to ask for a replacement.

Beware the driver flex!!!

I love that portable tube amp, listen with my old Sony CD portable and LCD-2's. Must be old school too.
I was surprised and really liked it with my PAW5000 and who does not like a nice VJJ:open_mouth::thumbsup::smirk:

OK, I've strayed enough so let me get back into the thread:thinking:

Looks like I'm not the only one bothered whenever someone messes up the model name, haha. I've always been lowkey triggered by it but it hasn't been something important enough to complain about until now.

They start with Z, not K. ZS3, ZST, ZS5, ZS6, ZS10. Not KS3, KZ10, KZ5, etc.

Finally got my KZ ZS10's. Initial impressions - Mids less recessed compared to my ZS5. Has a much more gentle U shaped sound signature. Treble is smooth, with no sign of sibilance on even very processed tracks (for example: Rihanna - Monster), but probably having slight roll-off.
The bass didn't blow me away unlike my KZ ZS5, but is definitely decent (not extremely bassy, but definitely not neutral). Even though the IEMs, themselves are large, I surprisingly found it to be more comfortable than ZS5, with better isolation as well. (but definitely not as good as ZS3 in that regard).

For 30-32 USD with offers, it certainly seems to be decent, but for nearly 45-60 USD, I really think there should be quite a few , which should trump it. The cables are markedly improved from the previous versions as well. (I got the ones with mic)

Yeah, I think I should take a break from this thread. I will wait for 6 months. Let KZ release the remaining 8 models. I will wait for YZ35 which looks similar to ZS6. By that time KZ hopefully decides on a sound signature.
Bye until then.
