Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

    Very gentle that u tested this for me!
    Today i've tried what people tipped me: make some warm water flow in the ear for like 20/30 secs! Things were a bit better but that feeling was in anyway but it's reduced if i wear the in-ear with the cable around, dunno why.

    Hope i can have a good seal that guarantees me a good sound when i get my zsr.

    Just in...the ED7 and ED7 mini...made of bamboo...by recommendation of Doc Holiday.

    I hope there is no hungry panda around to eat them...already wrestled with the cat.

    UPDATE: I will be using the big ones in the rain. I hope they won't swell and I'll need to have them surgically removed.

    they certainly look really cool...but how do they sound?

    For me, narrow-bore silicone that are small enough for deep insertion work best. They bring forth the midrange and tame the mid-bass a bit. Don't be afraid to give them some volume and pair them with your brighter-leaning DAP.

    Side note:
    If you are hunting for "inexpensive but fun" you might also try the UiiSii US90 or HM7. They've a bit more sparkle up top and are great bed buddies.

    You weren't using the totally useless hard foam tips that came with them by any chance? If so, that's the problem...

    Please tell us more about the ES4 I'm really looking forward to hearing reviews about them. I love the ES3 and wanted to know if the ES4 are a huge improvement over them.
  11. dhruvmeena96
    Well ES4 have a very fast bass compared to ES3. And the treble is smoothened and doesn't have any peak. Its smooth and whole sound is tight on decay. But the mids follow the same laid back approach of zs10 but it is still forward compared to zs10.

    They are coherent and phase corrected too. which ES3 wasnt

    Well, then I am back to my EDR1 recommendation.

    Basically, here are your sub-$12 KZ choices ($12 is what the ZST used to cost anyways):

    ED7 Mini
    ZN1 Mini

    Out of those, I would go with 1) EDR1, 2) ATR, 3) ED9, 4) EDR2, or 5) HDS3 (in that order).

    Unless you venture out of the KZ brand, and then I would recommend the UiiSii CM5 for $12.

    Or lemme ask this - what kind of prices are you finding the ZST at (and from where)?

    You can also use olive oil or hydrogen peroxide to help soften and flush out earwax buildup (best to see a doctor if you have a large buildup though).

    The ED7 delivered a robust sound on their first outing. The largest included tips worked for me but I had to push them deep into my ear canals. These work fine in noisy environments.

    The ED7 plots solid in the Hamburger field. It sounds darkish and full.

    Here a KZ engineer testing the bamboo - I was at the Chengdu facility twice some 10 years ago.

    I'm finding them with the same price tag as you, around those 12 bucks.

    Thanks, i think i'll go with the EDR1 then, it's available in a warehouse near me and i don't have enough time to order something that is only available in china.
