Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

    Any sound difference between the Grey (that's advertised as bassier) and the others according to you?

    Wow, $48.99. In all honesty I believe the ZS6 is easily a $50 iem:wink:

    @stryed I find them to sound a little more lively, for some that may translate to bassier but to me they come off as sounding more efficient than the originals (Red, Black & Green)

    Some of the newest grey ZS6 have the lip. And, some of the newest non-grey ZS6 have the lip too!

    It's basically luck of the draw. My advice is to not order it expecting the lip, and if it arrives with a lip then it's like getting an extra cherry on top your sundae!

    Nope, I busted that myth. Even backed it up with FR measurements. And I have 6 pairs I tested. Any slight variances between individual ZS6 are due to QC variations only.

    The "extra bass" name is just marketing voodoo. All ZS6 are 100% exactly the same other than color (and some have the eartip lip).

    LOL, or not and then your cherry is popped:hushed: Come to think of it I don't even think I've checked my black pair:rolling_eyes:

    4E6F48EA-8462-4D19-844C-2DCA26550CC5.jpeg So does my green one have a lip on the nozzle?

    Photo is blurry and it's hard to tell.

    Here's a clearer photo - see the lip at the very end of the nozzle? Compare this to yours and see if yours has this lip:

    Yes, that is why I tried to shine some light on the nozzle, which shows the break at the end of the nozzle.

    Cool. Looks like you're one of the lucky ones :)

    In your photo, it looks your camera/phone focused on the cable that was passing directly in front of the IEM. That made everything else be out of focus (including the nozzle tip).

    Love the gray/pewter pair and I've no qualms with paying full price for them either. Even though it's KZ's most expensive model, Amazon's $46 is a good price.

    BTW, are those cables holding up well (has oxidation set in - gone green)?

    The ZS10s are going for $59 on Amazon right now lol! I got a new pair of the silver cables https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07B2PH2M9/ref=cm_sw_r_sms_apa_i_q6q8Ab1G8H6D3 Seem to be pretty solid although they'll probably just be back ups for when the TRN bluetooth batteries die. They last all day so I probably won't use them much.

    While it may be true that the ZS6 is better than most $50 iems, I would rather have the Tin Audio T2 that retails at $50. Since I got mine at recent the Ali sale for $32, I consider the two to be in a similar price range. The T2 is just very special. In fact, I just did an A/B comparison with my AT-M50's and the T2s were much more detailed and with a more defined low end.
