Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

  1. Slater
    I was lucky enough to pay $19.99 shipped for 2 pairs of mine. Worth every penny!

    I'm not sure why the price has shot up so much though. Seller gouging? Supply and demand? No clue. Glad I stocked up on 'em though :wink:

    I used that same silver cable with my ZS10 over the weekend. I've switched back to the stock cable to give it a chance but I definitely feel like switching back to the silver cable. I'll be posting my ZS10 (stock) impressions soon.

    I kinda hate my ATH-M50X after all my recent IEM purchases now. I'm thinking of selling them. Or maybe trading them for an IEM/Earbud.

    I paid between US$22 ~ 27 for multiple pairs during various offers over the course of about 3~5 months. Think its a demand and supply thing.

    The ZS6 is a wonderful earphone IF the genre of music your listen to suits it though. I really like it for pure instrumental music be it acoustic or full bore classical symphony orchestra.

    However, its sibilance for quite a lot of vocal tracks is seriously evident, and can be downright a turnoff. The vocal tracks that seem not to be affected by it are those of the earlier, pre-90's era or those that have zero / negligible digital processing. (unfortunately a vast percentage do have that )

    You could always mod them to improve the sound. Or even swap out the drivers for something closer to what you like.

    If you do that with the slightly smaller rounded tip end and fold a large silicone ear tip over it you'll have your very own Symbio ear tip.

    Guys, i'm looking to give my bro a pair of iem's, i can't spend too much so budget would be around the ZST/Sub-ZST, i already have a pair of ZST so i don't wanna offer what i have and i'm not familiar with the ED line, what are the most easy to listen to (not fatiguing) and comfortable?

  8. DSebastiao
    When and where did you bought it?

    Hello Doc, these tri-briad have gotten a little dingy but not turned green. Actually the only cable I have that's turned really green are the permanent ones on my TFZ Series 1s.
    Two totally different iem's with different SS of which you appear to like the T2 but you do seem to have a plethora of KZ's:thinking: I find my T2's to be a D2000 light at least to my ears but then again this is the beauty of this hobby no one is really wrong in what they enjoy:thumbsup:Long as you are injoying your music you are a winner:wink:

    Even kind of resemble the D2000:grinning:

    The M50X is on the wall of fame at Inner fidelity. It is used as a studio monitor and some of its advantages include very low distortion in the sub-bass region, FR curve on target, built like a tank.

    I am never selling mine.

    Hi! I am new to the forum, but have a lot of KZ IEMs and got the new ZS10s. I agree to a lot of people here that their bass response bleeds into the mids, and I miss some of the sparkle of mine ZS5 v1. I am testing some EQ settings to make them more neutral, and I am getting very happy with the following one:

    This is why I generally avoid Amazon.ca. They have the ZS10 for about $80 Canadian, but Ali has it for $60 Canadian.
    Now I know why Bezos is getting $10 billion a month. I'm not kidding.

    Looking at the graph from audiobudget.com, I would rather cut 200-400Hz(the midrange low end). Always prefer a cut to a boost.
