Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

    No it's as you last saw it. Quite big openings (1.5mm). I think 1 mm should be enough though. It would be good to cover it up with some micropore. The vent mod was quite the 'yolo' thing to do for me. I just don't know where to find that stuff here, also not really looking for it.. its working good as it is.

    Also no more driver flex now, not at all.

    Ah, I remember now - you made the vent larger with sharp scissors. Gotcha.

    Glad that worked out for you no flex, tuned the sound how you wanted, etc). I'm all for DIY mods to make our audio gear more to our individual liking :)

    Is the KZ connector (female) socket available for sale on AE? Type A or B. See pic :

    I want to use the KZ Type-C DAC cable with a IEM that has MMCX (the DT6). The only adapter I can find, at Penon, is 25 USD. That's too much, I want to make a adapter cable with a (male) MMCX connector at one end and a KZ female socket on the other. So I can just plug in the KZ DAC cable to the female socket.

    So, I started my Christmas shopping early today. Aliexpress sale got me a ZS10 PRO, JCALLY 8-core cable, and I already have a spare set of New Bee tips to throw in. My Secret Santa gift is gonna be off the hook this year! Edit: I also picked up something for myself, since I've been such a good boy! LOL!

    In India we have a term for such janky modifications/innovations called 'jugaad' (pronounced juu-gaar). This picture below describes best what happened with the zs7 with my 'jugaad'.


    Not much of a looker, but hey you're comfy now...

    Got my cable, and it is correctly labeled. Also has the stamp inside the lid. No surprise with the quality control though.
    They seem a little long, but I felt the previous version was a little short with the controls danglin next to the ear.

    In the US there’s a similar term that means the same thing: jerry-rigged (or jury-rigged).

    That bicycle is most definitely jerry-rigged lol

    I know this was a bunch of pages back, but I just found out (luckily not with my wallet) that QDC cables aren't the same as KZ. They have reversed polarity and are different than other 2 pin cables.

    If the findings here still hold, there isn't always consistency in headphone polarity:


    If I understand correctly, polarity only matters when doing DJ or live production work, correct?

    It is rather important in electrical work too

    Hi,i had a pair of ZS10 recently fail. One or more drivers died in the right earbud suddenly. Im kinda pissed since they werent even 1 year old,but i did use them a lot. Is this common? I know they are cheap but still,i dont like throwing money away.

    Anyways they sounded good so of course im already looking for a new pair,since my ES3's are too aggressive with treble. Im kinda adamant to buy a new pair since i know harsh treble is like a KZ trademark. I was thinking about getting a pair of ZS10 Pro's , how is the treble on that model? What other models have treble like the ZS10?

    They usually don’t just ‘die’. If they get dropped on the ground or knocked on a hard surface, then that can definitely kill any earphone. So can burning them in at too high of a volume, running them through the washing machine, heavy sweat from working out, etc.

    Any of that a possibility?

    A few days ago it stopped working correctly,audio would cut out everytime i touched the shell but sometimes it would work correctly. Then yesterday the drivers died for good

    I actually found out that it if i banged it a few times against my wood desk it would start working correctly,until i touched the shell. It was truly infuriating,even smiling or frowning would make the faulty drivers stop working.
