    @1clearhead, I just made the order for ZSN thanks to your feedback (I owned many Magaosi iem as you, maybe we have similar sound signature liking :)) )

    Guys i have KZ AS10 And its sounds just amazing. A guy in my country wants to trade B&O H3 ANC with my KZ AS10. What do you think? should i trade with H3 anc ?

    Wait a minute... You're using a soldering iron that feeds flux? What kind of witchery is this?

    And here I come again with the questions... This time it's about the copper silver upgrade cable that I received and it will be difficult to explain but here I go:
    On this series of cables you have a flat side and a round side to know how to insert them properly, but this is inverted on my cable. Could this mean that the polarity is reversed? Is there a way I can test it?


    If I put the cable "correctly", the ear-hook ends up under my ear, not over it...
    And also, unfortunately, there is no metal piece in the ear-hook, so I can't bend it backwards.

    What you're saying is not good, I'm only a student, I shouldn't have the money to buy all of that stuff. But hey, if I can eat my cheap pasta while listening to good music on chi-fi stuff I'll be more than happy :p !

    Why not?

    No, I applied a spot of flux gel with the tip of a toothpick before I began.

    So the steps were:

    1. Open control shell (the one that says TRN).
    2. Carefully peel off clear factory heat shrink tubing from the existing wire connections.
    3. Apply a small drop of flux gel to each joint where the wires are soldered together.
    4. Unsolder wires.
    5. Reverse wires and resolder.
    6. Test polarity with music test file.
    7. Apply a drop of liquid electrical tape to cover each bare wire connection, and let dry. I didn’t feel like messing with heat shrink tubing as the wires are ridiculously small. Liquid rubber tape is easier in this application.
    8. Snap control shell back together.
    9. Slip heat shrink tubing over control shell and heat gently.
    10. Enjoy cold beer in frozen mug. This step is critical to success.

    If you find the ZSN doesn’t have enough isolation on stage, give the ZS4 a try! It has as much isolation as earplugs!

    I have the B&O H3 ANC and it is a bulky iem that need to be charged to use noise cancelling, sounds ok

    I was wondering about this earlier. Which budget IEM would you rate to have the best isolation? (while still maintaining acceptable SQ)

    Edit: didnt notice I was on the KZ thread, i woulda asked on the sub-$100 chat :beyersmile:

    ZS4 or ZS3

    Between the 2, I prefer the ZS4.

    If you are particularly treble sensitive, you can go for the ZS3. Or else you can use foam tips on the ZS4, or even do the ‘ZST foam mod’ to the BA in the nozzle.

    But the ZS4 treble is just fine for me.

    I'm not overly sensitive to treble fortunately. A friend got the ZS3 recently and was not satisfied, I'll have to listen to those next chance I get. I'll surely consider the ZS4, can't beat a good isolation IEM for certain situations.
  14. Tunaa
    Thats ok. How about sound quality? I dont mind about charcing etc. Could you compare with AS10 for me?
  15. jibberish
    +1 on the isolation of the ZS4. It's my ideal lawn mowing/house vacuuming IEM, ha.
