Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

  1. DocHoliday
    The BA10 and AS10 have very similar bass. My ZSA has more bass quantity than my BA10 but the ZSA bass is definitely not as tight as the BA10's.

    Reportedly, the AS10 has slightly more of a mid-bass hump; I don't hear a mid-bass hump in the BA10.

    In short, if the AS10 bass is anything like the BA10 bass then it is fantastically quick and clean with unquestionable authority when called for and unquestionably tame when not.

    Mind you the ZSA, despite its coloration, is still a pleasurable $20 in-ear but the general consensus is that the ZSA appears to have been superseded by the ZSN.

    What in-ears or headphones do you enjoy most? What sound signature are you specifically
    after?

    All I can say, Pod, is that I've got all my bases covered (ZS6 = analytical pleasure, BA10 = laid-back detail and ZSR = my best outdoors IEM) totaling less than $200, although...

    ...those BGVP DMG's seem like they'd be right up my alley. That said, the BQEYZ seem to have redirected my attention given the price-to-value equation.

    By the way, great photos of your gear.

    I got my AS10 for $44 from the KZ Global Store but the sale is over.

    Here is what Penon said to me, "we are clear KZ inventory now , so sell it at 50% off , which is a loss , and we won’t get it in stock any more ."

    I'm not sure how they can clear their inventory when I bought one before they even sold out? I'm super confused.

    Either way, I went back to my old ways instead of buying the Cyan color like Penon was selling and bought the Black AS10 from KZ Global, which is the same color as all my KZ IEM's (except for two). Lol

    Gotcha. It sounds like they’re done with KZs, which are pretty competitive/cut throat.

    I bought 4 of the flat braided cables. The price was too good to pass up!

    They’re actually my favorite KZ upgrade cable once the ear wire is removed and the cable is dyed black :wink:

    Wow. I'm comparing the ZSN with my current signature top tier and it's now I'm realizing... It's 95% the same earphone!

    The ZSN bass and mids are a tad more emphasized, whether the other sounds a little, just a little bit smoother.

    But it's really so minimal - never heard two IEMs that are so much alike. They're basically the same. Compared in four genres now with an iPhone X and Spotify Premium as source, and counting.

    So yeah, I do NOT regret having the pink-silver ZSN on order too. So much love for these. :D

    How much is the top tier worth you're talking about? I'm assuming it's not a KZ?

    You're making me feel dumb for just buying the ZS10 and AS10. I already have 2 ZSN's coming.

    What I'm saying is, you better not be lying mister. :wink:

    Ok so i partly understand what Burn in is..
    But at what volume should i play pink noise or the others ?

    About as expensive as the AS10 during a sale. Well, I guess you could have skipped the zs10 in hindsight. Or in hindsight... I never liked them due to the blown up upper mids.

    Use music with heavy bass on full blast from your phone.

    This is good to work the driver in your iem or headphone. Or to clean up your ears :ksc75smile:

    I've read a few bad reviews of some of the IEMs in your sig so I take your opinion with respect but with a grain of salt as well. :wink:

    I guess I'll know how I feel after I get them since I'm a newbie.

    I normaly just use the iem or headphone that I just bought and occasionally I leave them playing at a slight bit higher volume when I am going out or not using them.
