Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

  1. nxnje
    ZS7 definitely has edgy upper midrange, but i would say a big "thanks" as it would have been almost "dark".

    No need to find the stock ED16 cable. It is horrible. Not ergonomic at all.

    My fellow KZ brothers & Sisters please put on your favorite KZ's and celebrate one of the all time greats as we have lost a special light in the world of music:cry:

    Oh, i have anouther question: How are KZ's eartips? good enough or do i need to get some aftermarket onese? And if that's the case, whats the stem size on the ZST?
    Haven't been able to find the last info.

    Some love em, some hate em. I'm in the love camp having bought another ten or so sets separately to use on other products. You'll have to decide for yourself.

    The ZST stem is around 5mm in diameter (excluding the lip which adds another 1mm or so to the width), and around 10mm long. Someone with something more precise than a beat up old tape measure will have to provide more accurate measurements, lol.

    You will not be able to find an answer for the 1st question, as some will swear they are trash while others will say they are fine.

    Im in the "its fine" crowd, and my recommendation is to try it for yourself.

    Does the bass improves when you press it harder to your ear? Thats a sign the isolation isnt right, try other sizes or other tips.

    Is it uncomfortable? Same thing.

    Thats basically its job, to keep the limited soundwaves such small device can generate moving your eardrum and preventing the outside sound to reach it while keeping it reasonably comfy.

    THAT said, eartips can affect the sound, mainly the bass, so worth trying tifferent types.

    For my experience double spinfit improves isolation and help keep them in place while memory foam improves comfort.

    I use KZ tips in almost all of them except the ZS6 (memory foam because of the nightmarish ergonomics) and in the es4 (Spinfit, it kept moving and leaking sound)

    In a Nutshell, every IEM is different as well as every ear, there is no universal answer.

    That bass response definitely makes these a bit "boomy" compared to the ZS10 Pro, which is about 7-8 dB lower if my memory serves right. I find myself enjoying both pairs, however, depending on the genre.

    Yeah, mostly concerned about if they're floppy AF or tend to fall apart in no time, but i've lived with any kind of cheapo earphone eartips before, so as long as they are somewhat usable i'm fine. Quality of sound would be on a totally personal level.
  10. igorneumann
    Oh, in that aspect, they are very good not too floppy and very durable.
  11. Coldheart29
    Nice, won't have to buy tips in advance then, i'll just try them and see if i'm comfortable with them (but i'm usually not particularlydemanding in that regard).

    Ergonomic... ? What are the specific issues?

    I'm looking for a Bluetooth cable for my zs7. the 5.0 version doesn't seem to come in the A type pin. any other suggestion? pref: should be cheap. 15$ ish~.

    if not a type c cable with mic would do too. but even that is not available it seems :frowning2:

    The ZSA is one of the best KZ's! It's natural sounding and bright/musical. I like it better then the ZSN as it holds a classic (oldish) sound that many other models do not.

    If you don't have it... it's a must for your collection. Get it before its discontinued!
