Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

    I can say with 100% certainty that when they are not playing music, the ZS7 sounds exactly the same as every other IEM in your collection!

    Looks like my luck has ran out. AS-10 that I received had a mid/ mid-high driver that was wired out of phase.

    I believe the h5 is rebranded magaosi k5/ toneking tk2. If this is correct, the as-10 has considerably better low end response than my k5, however there is still a bit of a mid bass bloat. The highs were a bit more resolving than the k5(can be hot). Please keep in mind that these observations were from miswired pair.

    I think the BA in the BA10 stands for BAss 10.

    Here is the side-by-side BA driver chart between the AS10 and the BA10 that I spliced together. There is one difference in driver -- the one that controls the mid-range. This has a pretty big impact in how the two sound. The BA10 is darker. The AS10 is brighter, perhaps more balanced.

    My quick and dirty measurements show bass/lower mids that are basically identical but they split off around 800Hz to 4-5KHz where they intersect again more or less.

    How is the isolation on the BA10 vs. the AS10?

    Hello boyz
    On gearbest i saw 2 types of ZS6: one is with normal description, wether the other one mentions "EXTRA BASS".
    Is that a new version of the ZS6?
  6. nxnje
    Ahahaha good trick to get rid of our little monkey dancing in our heart and brain when we see another piece of gear.

    Hmmm, that could be a simple typo (ending in 89 vs 98).
  8. Slater
    Nope, same version. That extra bass business was just marketing fluff made up to sell the new grey color.

    I thought so too, but its written on the driver and in the text.
  10. Slater
    You mean you saw it written on the BA driver of you own personal pair (and using with your own eyes)? Or do you mean in the photos of the BA diver in the online marketing literature (ie the computer renderings)?
  11. antdroid
    The marketing photo. twice. Once on the driver and one below it on the text (which i circled)
  12. re.on
    woah. i didn't know that. :))
  13. antdroid
    hmmm could be a typo. theres an "N" at the end of the driver instead of "8"

    I was an owner of the AM90 and the AX7.
    The cable from both is very bad. the cable from the AX7 broke within one month at several places. i cannot believe it. i am glad that i have spent just 50€ on the ax7 (instead of the former price: 180€).
    i take care of my equipment and that is why i cannot believe it. even the shell of the ax7 is not good to. at last i can say that the AM90 lives longer thant my AX7.
    if you want to buy a good earphone than go for DUNU My trident lives 3 years and the soundstage and the isolation is above average in comparision with other earphones in this class.
    since that time i decide not to buy from astrotec.
    Sorry for my english and best regards.

    That's basically the exact opposite of what I was hearing, lmao. Sometimes I hate this hobby O_O

    *Edit: The tuning differences I hear are very minor; less mid-bass on the BA10, slightly more treble, more or less same mids and sub-bass, but more importantly, the BA10 sounds more controlled. Using stock tips. Could always be I'm just not getting an ideal seal. Less bass, more treble is generally a symptom of that. I find the fit on them somewhat awkward.*
