Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

  1. mbwilson111
    Thank you for that. I was starting to feel bad about having two original ZSNs (one with a balanced cable). I don't think I have ever wished for more treble in anything. I want to continue to enjoy what I have...which is too many actually.

    Yes, I enjoy my ZS3E (black) very much. It has more bass than many of my others but it does not seem overdone. It does not give me a headache. It is also very clear. I like it enough to have put that spare balanced cable on it:) No idea if it changes the sound but at least I can use it with my balanced sources.

    ZS7 + Spiral Dots M + 8 core silver cable + this piece of music = Bliss!

    I've been listening to the Zsn Pro for my review and ran across Edgar Winter's Frankenstein and am really impressed with the 3 dimensional nature of the stage on these. They are a bit deceptive as until you hit something that really utilizes the available stage they seem a bit more 2 dimensional and smaller. Now I'm going to have to break out my soundstage tests and really see how good they are.

    Thanks, lady!

    I'm thinking about this one:


    Which one of the SpinFit that you have?

    Yes, that cable will fit. Mine has that angled connector but the size is the same... I think that combination of angle and size might be unique to the ZSA but that listing says it fits the ZSA.

    I wish I knew what Spinfit that one is. We found it in the tip stash and think it may have been and unused one from my husbands Duno. Ones that I have bought and used on other iems are white not grey.. I think C100.

    I'm sorry to burst your bubbles but the KZ ED16 is "better" than the CCA C10. Better meaning... MORE FUN = Repeat Listens.

    Why buy? What about the AS16? :wink:
  8. LaughMoreDaily
    I doubt it'll sound good. The ZS10 is a blow out. Even the ATR sounds better than it. I even bought the ZS10 after everyone was saying how bad it was. :frowning2: It's true. It's bad.

    My ZS10 is fine. a little bassy, vocals are not as forward as I like but it's a fine for me. Better with a different cable and with a amp (fiio A3).
    Still doesn't beat my AS10 which I love, and to my ears better than CCA C10, which excel on some tracks but thin on others.
    Had a zsn for a while. But sold to a mate who was blown away with it. but, it that was good too... wished I'd kept it. But you can only use one set of 'phones at a time.

    Proof everyone has different ears and tastes I think.

    I quite like the sounds of both KZ's recent ba-only products; they cover my music listening range quite nicely. The pros (if it does happen) might just take it a step further. If they do make the pros, for around $40-$50, it would certainly tick most of my check boxes. But I'll probably skip AS16, and go for CCA C20. That's in keeping with my headfier's false sense of economy! :)

    coincidentally, i pulled out the ed16 yesterday to walk the hounds and was reminded how good they are--less ambitious than the more expensive hybrids but also more coherent

    I remember you saying that you did not like the ED16. You keep changing your mind about so many models. One day you love them. Another day you don't. I am thinking that your music and/or your mood play a part as well as other factors.

    Not sure there are any Better or Worse with most of these. Just different... and we all have different tastes.

    B*gger it...

    I've only gone and ordered the ZS10 Pro.

    It only cost me £31.15 with a KZ store coupon on Ali

    Well it looks like I'll eat again properly sometime at the end of May.

    I was just about to pull the trigger on the ZS7 then spotted the ZS10 Pros and got intrigued. I'm guessing no one's got hold of one yet as I can't find any reviews anywhere.

    Are the KZ's always "on offer" on AliExpress? E.g., if I wait a week or two until reviews come out (I'm looking at you, @Mybutthurts :wink:) will they be back on offer again?

    Eating is overrated. Can't do it with IEMs in the ears.

    Can drink tea though..putting the kettle on...
