Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

  1. mbwilson111
    Did you try the Artiste DC1 or the Tunai Piano'? Both excellent in my opinion.

    Then there is the R1 Zenith with its Gen II 14mm driver featuring uprated Neodymium motors with beryllium diaphragm + Piezo Ceramic driver. A bit pricey though. I only have it because the first batch was out of phase, and replacements were sent to the buyers (HungryPanda, who was not required to return the defective one.) So I have the defective one but the phase problem is fixed by just turning the cable around on one of the ear pieces. I just can't use a cable with molded ear guides.

    +1 for the DC1. And then there are the Elecom CB1000, Tunai Piano, Rosewill EX500, LZ A6 and high end ones from Noble and Hyla!

    I have a question about these BT adaptors everyone is talking about. Since they're wireless how do we know how many cores the air between the source and the BT receivers has? And can I enhance their sound by treating the actual air? I know a lot of fancy wire is supposedly oxygen-free so would I get better sound if I sat in an oxygen-free chamber of some sort whilst listening to my music? TIA ;-P

    I’m fairly certain KB Ear is Kinboofi.

    KB Ear simply sub-contracted with KZ to have their name and logo on the IEM and packaging. Not that there’s anything wrong with that; lots of companies do that in every industry, from cars to frozen foods.

    Does zs10 pro share the same cable as zs10?
    If i already have zs10 is it better to skip zs10 pro?

    similar cable with different connector (ZS10 pro use para C type like ZSN)
    ZS10 PRO is very different from regular ZS10, they can just use entirely new name because they're just different. Only same configuration 1DD+4 BAs.

    Yes they should have had a completely new name for it.

    I haven't tried those three, glad to hear other companies have done good piezo implementations. My most recent experience (other than the DT6) was with the Elecom EHP-R/CB1000RD (pretty "meh" by my standards), and one other make/model which I can't recall at the moment.

    Wendy, from KB Ear wrote to me by email stating, and I quote, ..."KB is the abbreviation of American professional basketball player Kobe Bryant, our boss is a fan of Kobe Bryant.
    And our online website is http://www.kb-ear.com/." ...unquote.

    I don't know if this makes any difference with all the similar earphones going around, but just thought I'll pass this along. :deadhorse:

    She sent me a KB10 for review, so I'll know more about the similarities once I get to them.:sweat_smile:

    Ok, I guess the person who told me it was the Kinboofi people was wrong.

    Thanks for clearing it up.

    Lol I did too, that's how I got here lol. He also said that a senior head-fi member tested it out, I wonder who may that be... :thinking:

    IMO the only reason to skip the zs10 pro is if you already have several zs10 pros :beerchug:

    For the starters, I am curious of the count: 1 piezo, 4 BAs and then a DD is enthusiastically counted as "double"?
