Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

    The KZ 1+1 setups have extremely similar frequency response graphs to SE215. See rtings.com graph comparison tool and try SE215 vs. ZSN ( https://www.rtings.com/headphones/1-2/graph#635/2061/809 ). That, though, doesn't address BA timbre and coherence and whatnot (I'm still on the fence about whether it exists or is it just all in the signature and distortion levels. I do like deconstructionism and reductionism. Indeed.).

    I just bought SE215 on AliExpress for 20$ (hooray for patent infringement! I did ask for one without the Shure logo) exactly because I'm aiming for max isolation and claustrophobia. If I can't hear my veins pulsating in an office environment then I'm not nearly there yet! To each one's own, I guess :D

    I have the ZS4, ZSE(blue version), ED9 Super bowl, ED special edition in my shopping cart. Anything bad in it I should remove?

    Ditch the Special Edition and replace it with an EDR1. It looks exactly the same but it has a different driver and sounds better IMO.

    the zse is one kz i never warmed up to--odd fitting and requires amping to sound credible--for a few more bucks you can get the zsn. as per slater, i'd also swap the edr1 for the the edse--it's really good.

    Thanks again Slater. I prefer an unpredictable release schedule. That way we can get some nice surprises :)

    Already have the zsn and I switched out the Ed special for the edr1. I have the LG g7 as the source so it has good quad dac and pretty good amp

    I didn’t like the ZSE either. Supposedly, the newer blue version sounds better. I’m skeptical of that claim, but who knows maybe KZ did something magical with it.

    Blue one still sounds like @$$. As crazy as it sounds, skip the ZSE and get the QKZ version; KD8. It sounds most excellent.


    Edit: Adding that I paid a whopping 7.97 CAD for them. I bought them here via the KZ Global store. They have it labeled as the ZSE Special Edition. They're so special, they're actually a QKZ :)

    Just got the spinfits Cp240 Large and Cp155 Large. They are amazing and I like the CP155 the most, they increase the bass and the highs more than the Newbee Foam tips on my Tin T3 and ZS7. Only problem is that the CP155´s nozzle is a little bit too big is the CP145 exactly the same as the CP155 but with a smaller nozzle? In that case im gonna order it.

    Like I mentioned cp155 might be a little loose. Cp145 fits for me. Design wise spinfits in this series is same. Except the cp145 small size which follows cp100 style design. You should be good with medium or large cp145.

    Do you have any experience with the CP360? Might buy that at the same time as CP145 ( gonna wait for the summer sale to start)

    EDIT: And im guessing the CP100Z is the same as the CP360 but with a bigger nozzle size?

    I don't own cp100z and 360, looking at the website they are as you say. Cp100z will be the better fit, since they are closer to the 5mm bore size. Note that a smaller tip bore will increase treble presence and (usually) reduce soundstage, increase silbilance. And if its too big, bass might be diminished to unlikeable levels.
