Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

    Yeah, but to me that makes them as special as my KPE. I spend some time on both, polishing them to keep then clean looking. I don't mind shiny stuff at all. I luvs me some bling!

    The problem with the ZSA is listeners burnout comes quite quick. It's not one of those earphones you'd want to listen to for hours or a long trip. However, it is light, so it's "perfect" for taking on a long non-vehicle trip.

    Have you tried using it with a second music device to see for sure that you don't like it?

    I couldn't have said it any better, myself! All this gear is just about personal preferences. And, there's nothing wrong with that!

    If you dont already have them, try the Newbee foams. To my ears, they keep the bass nice and supple and deep, but they still retain the mids and highs. Very comfy too. I can listen to my ZS10 PRO's and KPE 's for hours on end, and I never feel fatigued. I actually have to force myself to stop listening and go to bed.

    Are you saying the ZS10 Pro are better then the TFZ No. 3?

    Have you tried the Newbee foam tips? They sound great, and stay in my ears very well.

    Yup. Maybe I got a defective set, but I personally prefer the ZS10 PRO over the No.3. Of the 3 iems I currently have, my rating is: 1- KPE, 2- ZS10 PRO, 3- TFZ NO.3. The ZS10 PRO has got better, clearer details than the No.3. Bass is actually more slamming too. Which is odd, since this set was touted as having better bass than the KPE. Without extreme EQ, the the No.3 sounds soft, recessed and boring. I don't get the hype. To me, KPE sounds clearer, cleaner and faster than the No.3, and ZS10 PRO has all that, with a bit more punch to the mid bass, compared to the No.3. SO FAR...I've only got about 10 hours on the No.3 so things might change with more usage. So far though, I'm not getting the hype.

    Those are the ones I just got. I have the red ones. They took away too much sub bass for my liking. Love how the highs sound with them but don't want to give away that much sub.

    I know that feeling.... especially when my husband is away working nights. I have accidentally stayed up listening to album after album until 5am more than a few times. So, I am on night shift too... lol. Except he is working:frowning2:

    Im using with the kz BT adapter, tried also the Trn Bt03.

    Its like it lacks some mid-bass, it does appear to have some strong sub bass in some songs, but ir lack punch.

    Im even considering maybr mine is defective bcause isnt what I read in any review.

    Thanks, im there already...

    Spend so much time in just 2 threads that I forget there are others, sorry for the offtopic bit.

    Ps.: Im surelly getting at least a couple of those
    Ps2.: I saw that chart but it doesnt appear to be consistent with reviews as it shows BQ3 with less bass and every review says the opposite.

    I sleep with my ZS10's

    I have 2 "forgotten" KZ models in my drawer that I loved the sound signature but was never able to use them...

    KZ ED 9
    KZ ED15 (absolutely stunning design)

    The problem I have with them is that their weight appear to be torward the outer side and they fall off my ears almost instantly.

    I wonder if someone has a trick to make those usable.

    Thats awesome, I always wanted a AS10 with slightly bigger bass.

    Im still not sold in their new aesthetic though... Is that outer shell aluminum or baigain-bin silver plastic?

    I wish they kept the transparent shells with the logo printed on the board, love those (but the ZSN/ZS10 pro aluminum outer shell is also sweet).

  15. mbwilson111
    I wondered about that also. Maybe my husband @HungryPanda would like to compare his BQ3 with my KB100 and comment on the bass in the BQEYZ thread sometime this week.

    People probably think we have both listened to each of the others gear, but that is not true. How would we have time?
