Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

  1. mikp
    been trying the zs3 and trn BT cable, and very surprised by the fit and comfort. The zs3 seems like molded to my ears and much more comfortable than all my other BT Earbuds. Also the cable hugs the neck so nothing pulling on the buds.
    Why have I not tried this before?

    Now have to replace another set, so is there another "affordable" alternative to zs3 that has the same shape that fits the trn cables (2 pin or mmcx)?

    Did KZ steal your girlfriend?

    There are a lot of intelligent, articulate and knowledgeable people on this thread.

    Your constant snip(3r77)ing comes across as both arrogant and insulting.

    If you hate KZ that much that you are unable to be objective, leave the thread.

    Bought the KZ ES4 on Ali. Now how long till it ships?

    I think any KZ under $20 is a good deal. If the impressions of them on here hold true. I won’t need my ZSTs(I got the for free so might give them to a friend).

    Hopefully I can trade my TFZ 5s for ZS10s

    Hi guys is there any problem if the vent holes on the zs5 are uneven? Left one is bigger than right one on mine.

    Another user told me that after asking, he realized vent holes in his unit were different too but he never heared any problem.

    I don't hear any uneven eq or balance problem, but who knows. What do you guys think?

    Heree you can see they are not equal.

    Looking at them I don't even think they are vents since they look blocked by a metal ( or at least by a metal coloured one) piece.

    What kind of influence have these on sound? Blocked them with tape and didn't hear much of a difference lol

    I think it should be ok if you don't find any difference with it.

    Nice cable, which one is that? Surely not from KZ?

    It is kz indeed, the brand is engraved in the plastic piece where the cable split.

    You can buy it on aliexpress

    I would share a link but i doubt it is allowed lol

    Yeah kZ makes the most value for money cable and the SQ is just damn good.

    The silver cable just have a better Channel separation, it is all I noticed, and maybe a little more clarity, but just by how sturdy it is...a must have for sure.

    He's not potty trained yet.....and our thread is his toilet.


    When he feels pressure he'll defecate on cue. He's used to the stench but the rest of us should ignore his presence while we reach for the disinfectant.

    There is zero difference in terms of channel separation and clarity between the stock cable and this silver cable. I have both. Why should there be? Because the "silver" cable looks better? The FR curve could shift with different cable resistance [counts toward the output impedance], but this would not be the case in most single-driver earphones and also not in the ZS5.

    As to the vent hole: just partially fill the bigger hole with blue tack or something like that - use a thin needle. Test the channels by listening to a mono recording.
