Since you're having some nice IEMs in your sig ... how do the 10Pro compare to the Solaris / Andros?
Give me some time, I'll try to do a short comparison before the month ends.

every new kz model generates gushing praise before going going through more critical revaluation--it's a natural law. i do observe that the zs10 pro has had an unusually long honeymoon period--usually it's a month or so before sentiment changes.
What's impressive about this iteration is that they outperform KZ's own similar-price options, but with better comfort. They are just pleasant to listen to and cost-effective. Those 2 criteria will make a lot of people happy, including myself. I'm sure a new flavor of the month will pop up soon though, this is KZ after all. :dt880smile:

Meh, my sentiments won’t change; the ZS10 Pro and ZS7 were my favorite KZs from the 1st time I heard them, and they still are.

Out of the box the ZS10Pro was for the price stunning and still is.

FWIW, crin rated the ZS10 Pro as "not bad". If a fervent KZ hater can like/not hate it, it stands up to the "hype", I'd say.

So ...no. AS12 is not for me, there is a too much treble somewhere at that sibilance range and disturbs me a lot. AS16 is my winner here - while bright and thin sounding (they are both), it has also very compact scene and it is easy to dive into the music with it.

EDIT: Hmm, after a longer time with silver/gold KZ cable on the as12, I must admit that their sound is coherent. And detailed. -- quality masters are required-- but still you have to get used to their bright sound anyway. Brighter treble than as16,

Still loving the KZ ZS7, especially with cable 130
