    Great question for the Chi Fi thread as it isn't a KZ product and it has been discussed there quite a bit.

    This is interesting:

    ZS6 is different in this area:

    Shells look just slightly different, but who knows wheather the sound is any different. Decent package though, not sure if I like the mmcx instead of 2-pin socket.

    Yes, that inner part is different, but could that affect sound assuming everything inside is the same?

    I've spent one week with the ED16, I'll make a quick review in a few days.
    One question for the ed16 owners. I've noticed the volume is quite low, mostly taking into account the low 8 Ohm impedance. I have to raise the volume to 85% or so when walking on the street.
    Is it the same for you?

    Who knows, would just have to listen to them to know. There could be totally different drivers inside.

    There's a vent hole on almost every other picture but that one.

    Correction, all close-ups have vent holes, some of the others don't.

    Well, there's only one way to find out :)

    Do you mean with a phone? I assume that would vary with the device. I only have used mine with a good DAP or my pc desktop dac/amp. This is true of everything I have, not just the ED16. Sometimes I add a portable amp to a dap for higher impedance gear. With my Cayin N3 I use low gain at around 40 volume.

    Skip the ZSA, ES4 much better in all ways.

    And yet some would say the opposite. :upside_down:

    I actually like both ZSA and ES4, ED16 and ED15 are great too

    Thanks all for the comments! I have an ED16 on the way to complement my ATR and almost-dead ZS3. When the wallet is less empty I am keen to pick up a ZS6 as a momento of the time when KZ used designs similar to Campfire Audio :wink:

    No need to apologize, I've done it too. There is so much info here it can be tough to sort and process it all.

    Hey, guess what, I ordered one...
    Since I've managed to skip ZS6 somehow I reckon I could try this one. Hopefuly they are not worse than KZ's take on Andromeda :wink:
    Will report when I get them.

    I got them for $32, I guess that's not too bad for icluded bundle...
