Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

    lol, that is the ED9's cable. I don't think it's the best, but I do like it. I personally think KZ's current braided cable is tops. They incorporated user feedback and gave us what we asked for. Now they just need to refine it with a chin cinch and a shorter run between the y-split and earphones to avoid tangling. Maybe beef up strain relief too. The VSonic rip off jack and y-split are lacking in that regard.

    I agree.
    The braided KZ cables are really nice. For my little DAP the straight large connectors are the killers. I just wish they would made angled (L-shaped) ones, that would be the end game for me.

    Gotcha.

    The ZS1 v1 cable is one of my favorites of the classic KZs. The way they integrated the memory wire was awesome. If I remember it correctly, I also liked the ATE-S cable setup.

    I LOVE the original ZS1's memory wire. Still the best I've come across to date.

    I also love love love the UiiSii CM5 preformed ear guides. They are thinner, softer, and more flexible/comfortable than any other ChiFi preformed ear guides I’ve seen (on any OEM cable or 3rd party cable). I WISH whatever method or material UiiSii used would be replicated by others.

    Yeah man. UiiSii is under rated/under appreciated. They have some slappers in their lineup.

    Ha ha! Too bad they are so ignorant and ill informed. These people need to experience good audio...something that that doesn't come with the smartphone they are attached to.

    ZS10 v2
    After some more time with them and comparison against my old zs10, I can say the new one sounds better (more detailed and well balanced) and becomes my most favourite KZ iem for now. (I'm still waiting for zs7, as10 and 12.). There is no more higher-mid peak to talk about. Character is gentle V-shape.

    Hmm, when I look closer, the color of insulation of the new KZ (zs10 pro) cable is realy ugly. It could be more transparent or different color. Otherwise I like looking at a nice copper cable.

    If they dont see the wires attached, say do you need laser eye correction? These arrent bluetooth ear pieces like you young morons wear. Lol.

    I looks like snobby audiophile looking for attention when wearing copper cable. otherwise I actually like the color when not wearing them.

    I'd bet that moving the drivers closer shifted a resonance peak closer to one of the BA's natural dips. Whats the millimeter gap from the BA nozzle to the edge of an installed eartip?

    When you take a closer look at the second picture and compare it with photos on the internet, you realize, that KZ moves all four BA drivers closer to the nozzle. Two of them by 1 mm or so, and other two by 3 or 4 mm.
