Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

  1. DAP1MP13
    I received my ED16s just two weeks ago, and they came with the old/stiff starline tips, which are junk IMO. Even though I use foam tips on nearly everything I have (using silicone tips with my v80s right now), I would've liked to try these out....

    Can you post a photo of the new/softer starlines, please?

    Since You said 50-100$... take a look at IT01 :wink:

    Bought Sennheiser CX 2.00G for 30 USD. Of course, no changeable cables and anatomic designs at this price range in the west, unlike with what Chi-Fi treats us. But separation and bass decay on these tiny single DDs is better than KZs I have (don't own the latest flagships like ZS10, AS10, though). The treble sounds is a bit thin, but no roll-off, it's all there. Less sibilance than ES4. Guess I'll have to get some Chinese single dynamics like TFZ or IT01 to compare.

    Hey, new to KZ. I've owned the KZ-ZS10 and I'm very impressed, but wish the bass had more precision.

    - What's up with KZ's naming scheme? ZS, BA, AS, what's going on?

    - Any guesses on what the ported and unreleased KZ-BA10 is going to sound like?

    - Can we confirm if they use genuine Knowles drivers or not?

    I already have IT01, and Kinera Idun is arriving tomorrow (yay!). What else? Should I buy the new KZ BA10? The shape looks uncomfortable. :frowning2:

    Hello! I'm new to Head-Fi as well. :)
    - TBH, I'm curious as well about the meaning behind those abbreviations, but hey KZ means "Knowledge Zenith" and I have no idea what that means lol.
    - I saw from one group page that the metal design is for aesthetics purposes only. However, sound resonance can be altered by a material (e.g. plastic, metal shells).
    - I doubt they use Knowles drivers. For the price, I think they are using Bellsing drivers.

    The BW VOX1 from Blitzwolf is still a good budget option.

    KZ uses Bellsing BA drivers, not Knowles.

    Wow, with the ZSA/Audeze-Cypher combo with the app EQ, I finally found harshness, which was on Haley Reinhart’s cover of “Can’t Help Falling in Love”. Her vocals were fine, but the “d**n sound engineer fell asleep”, because her highs were not reattenuated. Oh well, not all sound engineers are created equal, but I am saying that with $15 KZs on my ears.:)

    I got it off the last Aliexpress sale ( after stacking discounts and coupons ) for US$41.29. And shipping was free too. It took 16 days to arrive. Some orders I took from Gearbest earlier than the sale hasn't been delivered yet !

    Doesn’t surprise me it’s taking that long, assuming they used NLPost (Netherlands). You could walk to China with your shoelaces tied together and just get it yourself faster than NLPost delivers!
