Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

    I guess they went with a ceramic antenna to save space.

    They used to have a trace antenna on their previous Bluetooth cables, but they screwed up the engineering of it and it was tuned to the wrong frequency (very Mickey Mouse). So I guess the ceramic antenna takes the engineering guesswork out it. I’m hoping the performance of this cable is better.

    Yeah, I was just joking around about it. But it wouldn’t surprise me if it really happened.

    KZ has been on an ~18-month upgrade cycle, so it’s about time for an AS10 refresh :wink:

    I'm pretty late to the party, but I've posted my review of the KZ AS10 here on Head-Fi and on my blog.

    Agreed. In the meantime, the pre-announced CCA C20 has yet to be seen.
    A headfier cannot live by just hype alone, I need that order button ASAP:)

    Choo choo! I'll get the carriages shunted up, while you go look for the train driver. Engr Clearhead is probably on his break. :imp::grinning:.

    I've definitely been enjoying the ZS10 Pro today. Though I don't consider it an upgrade to the original ZS10, except that many more people will be able to get a perfect fit and so be able to appreciate it better. Unlike the ZSN to ZSN Pro, there was a bigger change in the V-shape profile. 2 KHz balance went down and 6 KHz went up. I think I slightly prefer the old ZS10 EQ profile. The ZS10 Pro seems like it was also influenced by the CCA C10 tuning, like it is almost a C10 Pro as well. Like the ZS10, soundstage, details, imaging, bass and treble extension are all extremely good. I prefer the more forward mids presentation of the Senfer DT6, but the micro-details are better in the ZS10 and ZS10 Pro.

    Don't you find the Pro expensive? I paid $22USD for my ZS10. It's a terrible IEM too.

    The ZS10 was US$59 at launch.

    Your US$22 price point was many, many months after that .....

    They were asking US$60 for the ZS7 and U$45 for the CCA C10 at launch. How much did you pay for those ?

    I had no idea the BQEYZ were using them, were they advertised or how did you find that out? This is the first time I heard that.

    Please post sound impressions, fit, and comparisons when you can. I'm looking at this, ZS7 and ZSN Pro to buy early next week...I need serious guidance. One thing I already DON'T like...is the way that 2 pin connector sticks up outside the bud. Where am I gonna find a 0.75 mm aftermarket balanced 2.5mm cable that's gonna fit THAT dumbass thing??!! Almost everything is either 0.78mm 2 pin or MMCX that is for recessed ports.

    What do you think of the K2? I was looking at this set or the K2C also instead of the ZS10 PRO. Any thoughts?
