    Is the kz aptx bluetooth cable fixed? It's on sale at aliexpress for only 20 usd at the cca store.

    Isn't the Andromeda S like a thousand bucks?!!? I would hope a 50 dollar IEM wouldn't sound quite as good. LOL

    ZSN Pro is nearly identical to iBasso IT03 sound signature. A little more low end, but it's definitely super similar. Hats & other cymbals actually feel more "fischer price" in the IT03's.

    Haha, that’s a vivid description

    As long as you have a thousand bucks, there are more than thousand ways to spend them.
    Not a single pair (or even five-six pairs) of IEMs for me :)

    There's something driving me NUTS with these KZ ZS10 Pro earphoness!!! I use these while doing pushups/pullups outdoors, the right ear piece stays flush while the left always feels like it's slipping out the ear although it never really falls out. If I shake my head then the right stays put while the left kind of rattles. If the left earphone could stay flush like the right I'd be so happy with these.
    Is this to do with my ears shape or the earphones/eartips=
    Would be possible that aftermarket ear tips would improve how they stay in the ears?

    Other than that, these earphones are absolutely phenomenal, got them for $30 on aliexpress when they had a discount. They sound much better my $99 Sennheiser Momentums IEM.
    With an upgraded budget cable and a bunch of eartips (I see those New Bees mentioned often) these are gonna become my favorite go to IEMs.
    Last but not least I might the usb HD Soanata DAC for my Pocophone F1 but still not sure it's gonna make a neglible differece on the sound.

    This sounds like it is a eartip or fit problem. Some people may have smaller ear canals compared to the other side, and I have read that some people need different sized eartips for Left and Right ears, so you should explore with other different eartips if you can. Personally, I use spinfits for this IEM and the isolation/fit/sound quality is better than the stock tips. I don't use foam/comply/new bee style tips, so maybe the rest can advise on this.
    Do u have a chin cinch on your cable? That can help too if the cinch goes all the way to the chin or back of neck to provide better stability.

    I also used the HD sonata DAC with the ZS10 Pro and it helps make the sound better (but only if you have high quality source file).

    I will post my impressions of the No.3 in a couple weeks, when I've had some time with them. At the moment they are still unboxed, as I'm waiting on an upgrade cable for them. Not in a big hurry, since I already have Moondrop Kanas Pro and KZ ZS10 Pro, both of which I am enjoying immensely...so much so that I think I'm gonna be selling most of my overear full size headphones.

    No idea about the Pocophone but I've got 4 different Xiaomi phones here (Max2, Max3, Note 4 and 5) and a Huawei X2 and the Sonata turns them into something completely different. That little sucker packs some punch and easily outperforms (bass slam/speed/structure, space/soundstage, details) my older modded and rockboxed DAPs as well (iRiver H-140 and Cowon D2 - does anyone remember these bad boys?) and even drives my AKG K712 and other hungry cans pretty effortlessly.
    In short ... best 25€ spent in years.

    I have bothe the ZS5 v1 as well as the ZS10, ZS10 PRO and CCA C16. Of all of these, I still like the ZS10, but I am having a running fight between the ZS10 PRO and C16. Each time I listen to one of these two, it becomes my favorite - until I listen to the other one again - so go figure. But, considering the ZS10 PRO is less than half the price of the C16, I would say go with the ZS10 PRO.
  13. baskingshark
    +1 to this. I liked the HD sonata so much I bought 2 haha. Cheap and good.

  15. baskingshark
    Most of us use D mode, which provides the best quality music wise.
