Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

  1. CYoung234
    Whew! Made it through the last 600+ posts without ordering anything! So many differing opinions in here. Since I got my ZS10's a while ago and paired them with Auvio tips, I have not felt the need to order anything new. I listened to my ED16's again last night, and still need to break out my ZS5 v1 again to have another listen to it. But for me, the ZS10 does everything I need to in an iem. It gets out of the way of the music better than anything else in my collection. Must just be my ears or something...

    Where do you buy the Auvio tips? I'm not too familiar.

    I think your ears are in love... with ZS10 :)

    Penon Audio wanted to cancel my ZS10 order. Apparently, the Canadian government told everyone around the world to stop sending mail here... or maybe it was Canada Post that did that? Anyway... no wonder shipping on Aliexpress is expensive right now.

    The government has just 'banned' the strike so mail will start flowing again soon.

    That's not how strikes work :p. You can't regulate them out of existence :p. Trudeau is a silly man.

    Anyway, I picked up the ZSN bluetooth cable. Should be here before 2020.

    I was using the KZ USB Type-C 0.75 mm Digital Decoding OFC upgrade cable. I found it quite good sounding and used it quite frequently. But its usage was limited as it could be only used with KZ earphones and being "B" type pins, the models narrowed down to a few KZ earphones compatible with type "B" pin only. So I thought to give it a go and make it generic. The price being around 10/12 $, the financial risk was not very high. And after a few hours of work, I did manage to successfully convert the DAC Amp cable into a standalone DAC / Amp Cable which can be fitted to any earphone. I tested it with quite a few and all of them works very well irrespective of TRS or TRRS type. Uploading a couple of pictures. The 3.5 mm socket seems crude. I hope to give some good looks to it later _20181124_174905.JPG _20181124_175024.JPG by filing.

    Are you in Canada?

    I think I got them on eBay, as there are no Radio Shacks in Paraguay. As far as the ZS10, yes, I think my ears are in love with it. I still enjoy listening to my ZS6's and CM5. The ED16s are nice. But I keep coming back to the ZS10.

    That being said, I have not heard the ZSN, AS10 or BA10...

    I noticed you have a lot of headphones in your signature. Is ZS10 a top ear piece for you or do you prefer other brands vs KZ or other models?

    The AS10's are $44 right now. Are you going to save for them when they are $64? :wink:
