Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

  1. DSebastiao
    Does it have the nozzle tip to hold the tips in place?

    Here a photo! The ZSR has a really long nozzle.

    It's all just speculation here but I'd sooner believe that the ZSR frequency response looks the way it does because they either implemented some kind of notch filter at 4-6 kHz or they just put a staggered crossover with a high-pass filter on the 30095 somewhere around that frequency. On the ZS10 it looks like they may have used a low-pass filter somewhere in the treble range. I honestly have no idea how realistic it is for them to have a modified 30095. However, if they do I would have expected a much smoother response from the ZS10 than what we got, especially after the ZSR.

    Referring back to the ZSA picture, that frequency response looks like it has the peaks of the stock 30095. If they modified it, I would think the first thing we'd see is those peaks getting smoothed out. Therefore either the frequency response pictured is a lot less smooth than what we'll see in the final product or, more likely, all this "upgrade" language is just misleading marketing. After all, "New Upgrade Balanced Armature Unit" is not proper English and potentially in Chinglish it can mean a number of different things.

    Mine does not.


    But I want to say someone else mentioned in the thread they got a green KZ recently and it had the lip on the nozzle.

    Thanks, what cable is that?

    ZSA are now available at aliexpress... does anybody knows the difference between KZ official Store and KZ Global store on aliexpress? The price is slightly different and the offer in both stores include the silver cable for limited time.

    Wow KZ releases so much models and I almost get lost... What's the purpose of releasing too much models huh? ZS5, ZSR, ZSA are the same price.

    Should I get the ES4 or ZSA? I'm using the ZS5 v1 right now and I like it. Is either of these an upgrade to the v1?

    P.S: Can't get both

    Very too much early to say anything about those. I decided to wait for few first impressions from users here before I pull trigger @ ZSA.
    I ditched plans to get ZSR as gift for my wife due to too large shell (though I really really like red & white ZSR looks).

    Though, there are still 2x ZS3 shells waiting for nozzle replacement and driver change (ATE drivers)... ZS3 fits and isolates great, is relatively small and very ergonomic.
    If ZSA proves to be another minor "upgrade", I`ll just gift modded ZS3/ATE instead.
