Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

    I use these two:



    The TRN is roomier. But in terms of build quality, the KZ one keeps it shape much better.

    Forgot to add, on sale, both of these will cost approx US$1/- each.

    KZ's use 0.75 but lot's of other chi-fi uses the 0.78 pin size.

    Brands like BQEYZ and some other brands I can't mention here use the 0.78 variant.

    Thanks for the answers.
    Anyway, i was looking for a hard box like those 2 and not soft one with rigid cover (which i actually have, the old psp box :D)

    I can't really choose between them
    If i were buying the resin one, would there be a little space for a very little DAP like my agptek m20? Or there's no space and maybe the black one is more of a better choice?
    Seems like the resin one can just contain one iem.

    I know... but they will drop more! :wink:
    Hey... they are "old" already, lol. You must have missed my post about them. I know I promised to release modding guide on them but been too busy with family, teaching, learning, building house etc.
    Take a look at my gallery: https://www.head-fi.org/gallery/album/workshop.871146/?page=2

    you are right. at those prices, you can consider purchasing from reputable companies, but remember the sales. got mine at 60% its price (72 instead of 116). equivalent cables from those companies are far more expensive.

    this KZ ZSN new cable pin is kinda...hmm redundant
    the old one seems just fine.

  8. Mellowship
    What a stupid thing to do when they have a line of cables. Having two kinds is just plain annoying, but now a third?
  9. eggnogg
    yeah so we need to cut those excess cover on the pin, if u plan to use the new cable on other KZ iem
    copying QDC pin they seems

    KZ improves their 2-pin connector and people @#$%. Sounds about right.

    Tried some tip rolling with my brand new zs6.
    Seems like they like wide bore tips, like the one i had in my memt x5's packet.
    Double flange+ wide bore.. HUGE. But unfortunately they are too short and i have to adjust them every moment

    Unique Melody uses that 2-pin style and it's a lot more secure and cleaner looking. That said you should be able to use normal cables with it fine. It just may look less smooth and clean.

    Also, YMMV but I use the same two pin (0.78mm) on every iem I have and it works just fine. KZ, iSine, Unique Melody, Noble, TRN, etc. I have also used KZ branded cables (0.75mm) on all of the above IEM brands as well.

    Triple flange. No need to adjust as long as the size of the tip is appropriate to your ear canal opening size. I use them with the ZS6 exclusively now.

    I had the same problem with my old ZS6 and even the new BA10. Seems to be a consistent thing with about half of KZ's models. The representative in the fiio FH5 thread claimed something about western vs eastern ears which sounds ridiculous to me. TFZ don't have that issue and countless other Chi-Fis don't either. Anyways, try the triple flange, spin fit large bore, spinfit dual flange, and large comply tips. Those all work pretty well for those stubborn non sealing iems. I ordered a set of symbios and will see how they do as well.

    Thanks a lot for the info shared. Gonna see if i find some triple flange tips online. Do you have cheap ones to link?
