    I can't wait! I listen to a lot of electronic music, it sounds great on the C16, but ZS7 coming this week! What tips would you recommend? I will probably go for Spiral Dots as a default. What is the cable like?

    @LaughMoreDaily you deleted your post above? Couldn't find it anywhere save in replies where it's quoted.

    Anyway please don't be confused. To be clear as to where I stand, I'll make it categorical:

    As between the CCA C10 and the KZ ZS7, I find the C10 better.

    As between the C10 and its all-BA sibling the C16, I cannot make the same categorical statement as above; I'm still listening to the C16, putting all my perceptions down on paper. The best I could come up with is that they have different signatures, as I described them in my post.

    Your question that I'd "rather listen to the C10 for hours over even the C16", presumes one other categorical statement that I did not utter. Please note my premise as regards both these CCA IEMs was on value—that's where I started my comparison between them. When talking about value, price is definitely part of the conversation. It should never be omitted insofar as I'm concerned, because to me the price is a feature of a headphone in the same manner that its sound, broken down into its constituent characteristics, is. That's how I always see and evaluate things. As to how the headphone reproduces and presents the music you play through it, that's where you're right—it comes down to individual preference.

    Now...how and why do I say I find the C10 better over the ZS7? The answer requires the requisite bases, and thus will necessitate revisiting the ZS7, which I don't personally own but have access to; so it will have to be explained at a later date.

    Until then, don't you think you should listen more to your music and not be so overly concerned about your headphones? If they reproduce the music that you love with sufficient fidelity then you're good. And you EnjoyMoreDaily. :ksc75smile: :kissing_heart:

    I'm using spiral dots as well. The cable is a pretty standard KZ one, I'm not using the cable, I'm using a KZ balanced upgrade cable.

    About the KZ ZSN "Pro"... the "double dynamic unit" which was advertised until yesterday is now "double magnetic dynamic". What means this? As I saw, there are not 2 dynamic drive, but only 1....
    It's a joke?

    It's not a joke. It's chinglish.

    PS: I look at chinglish as some sort of poetry...

    Damn bad, as I thought that the new ZSN will be something like a ZSE (the "old" ZSN dynamic drive + 1 new very low frequency dynamic driver) + 1 BA. Now, it seems like the PRO version is just a a "bassier" version of ZSN...
    Few weeks and we'll see some reviews, I think...

    I am not sure if you’ve seen the slogan KZ is putting on some of their newer models:

    Don’t forget the original intention is to use headphones to enjoy music”

    I know I’m guilty of over-analyzing gear myself. I’ve been trying to change that mindset more and more as time goes on. The gear is there to serve the music, not the other way around!

    KZs slogan is good advice for us all :wink:

    Yes the blue is nice!
    I think I wait for CCA CA4, it is also similarly blue, and "Every Second To Shake Your Sounding" feels more like me :):)
    (More seriously, I like the smooth plate of CCA better - both aesthetically and practically, and count on CCA to have a bit more balanced version)
