    There`s a thread for "serious tip-rollers": https://www.head-fi.org/threads/the-tip-rolling-iem-modification-thread.726229/page-5

    Unfortunately seems that no. Want to get another myself. Zelda is selling at gear thread but he is located in US, otherwise I would buy from him.

    Haha, that’s like the lost city of Atlantis my friend.

    You’re best bet is to buy a pair off of a HF member that’s willing to part with it.

    I¨m really glad to see a positive reviews for the ES4's. I purchased one week ago. Looking forward to them. Two days later i jumped to the ZSA hype train:blush:. Just because my ZS6's started to produce some kind of cracling sound when i touch left earpiece. Annoying "a bit".

    Just received the ES4 and... they’re great, straight out of the box!

    It has some characteristics of the ZS10 but it’s tuned way better. No overdrawn upper mids, but it has the warm sound the ZS10 has. The bass is lovely fat AND tight. The airyness some KZ’s just nail is once again present in this one. I popped them into my ears and enjoyed them straight away.

    Compared to the ZSR, the ZSR’s bass is a little more muddy, and it also sounds a bit smoother. That’s not a con. It’s something you may prefer or not. The ES4 doesn’t have as much sibilance.

    Another success for KZ, so soon after the ZSR. Insane!

    Noticed that the nozzle mesh that came with ZSA is a bit tight so replaced with another (5mm) and clarity is slightly improved.. ymmv

    Now more than ever I am looking forward to listening to the ES4.

    I have skipped the other "new" products since I have my ZSR, and ZS6, (with one BA disabled)

    Actually forgot I had ordered them, but last night I had a delivery of EDR2's. Unfortunately I had ordered EDR1's. So Short story longer, I hopped on AE to open a ticket to the seller, for refund or exchange. (Truth is I wont pay to ship them back $12.00 for two pairs of iem) So when I was looking on my account page, I found out I should have ES4 on Monday.

    Lesson learned...ChiFi purchases, while sipping a well aged bourbon, can be fun. Especially if one doesn't remember.

    A thing of beauty indeed. Ordered the same color cyan and your photo and initial impressions made me more excited to get my hands on this ES4.

    Hey look, the ES4 is a giant killer! Well, in a way. :p

    I wish my es4 hadn't gotten lost :frowning2: Maybe they'll randomly show up one day.

    Based on another user's recommendation I went with the green zsr and boy am I glad I did. I think they beat my zs10. Maybe not as much separation but the bass is amazing. And the fit feels completely custom. Will be selling my es3 and possibly even the zs10 now. Highly impressed

    I need the expertise of a resident KZ-niac.:wave:

    I received a response from the seller of the EDR1 that I tried to order, and was shipped a couple EDR2 packages.
    Sellers response was that the EDR1 has a black housing, and the EDR2 is silver, the only difference is the color, and they are one and the same

    Anybody willing to shed some light on this and educate me?

    TIA

    You would be a rich man right now if you had a dozen sets to sell.

    With a proper impedance-matched source/amp, they sound great IMO.
