    Question regarding the latest 2 KZs I have tried (Zsr, Zs10). Has anyone else noticed a metric ton of driver flex in both of these when inserting them? I am finding that when inserting either of the most recent ones I have received they have very pronounced and very audible driver flex, I am finding the seal to be a bit better with Foams on the Zs10 but I still am pretty dissappointed with the overall sound signature and I am wondering if the driver flex is indicating that I got a pair that shouldn't have passed QC of it is just inherent to the design.

    I personally haven't experienced driver flex in a KZ since the DT5.

    I don't notice driver flex on either. I do notice it on most of my tfz's and ibasso it01s.

    Not sure how it would be a qc issue though..... I thought driver flex was all pressure related and usually has to do with movement/insertion on DDs

    Isn't driver flex an UBER thing?

    What do you think of it?

    Driver flex is a pressure issue but can be related to qc if you get a diaphragm with a weak spot, a thinner than spec diaphragm, or the like.

    I love it!

    The original version had some hissing issues with the cable. They updated it with a new cable that's beautiful and solved the problem. It's called the "Upgrade cable v2.0 edition" or something similar.

    I haven't written a review on it yet, but there is some info/impressions here:

    I picked up a Red/Black KZ zippered case for my Red/Black ZS6, also new TRN replacement cable (wanted that angled connector to fit better around ear).
    One thing I don't like the cable is that the transparent shrink wrap is molded. Is there any way to reshape them? Do I need a heat gun to blow it while holding it to shape?
