Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

  1. KimChee
    Just ordered a set of the KZ T1, I have been interested in Bluetooth iems for a while now, and the price is pretty good. Plus I need a set at work I can slip in my pocket when I’m at lunch.

    ZS7 sounds really good, I think you’ll like them. I think they sound as good or better than my UE TF10 that I had made into a custom.

    Didn't keep that ones. If I can't bump slightly the volume on a song I enjoy without feeling "pain" it's not worth it to me, and that's exactly the problem with the ZSN. To a lesser extent with the ZS10 pro but that "agression" characteristic is still looming.

    Regardless of price I don't like to be agressed lol.

    ZS7 is the most forward sound I tolerate comfortably, but for long sessions it's really relaxing to go back to my KB100 or KPE (apparently there's a bqeyz B1 that has the same characteristics than KB100, just more bass, it's around 36€ atm on ali, if anyone wants good value but something different, as KZ is a bit more of the same lately, look em up)

    KZ stock cable after 2-3 months of daily use: the softness is gone. :ksc75smile:

    My ZSN aren’t aggressive in the treble at all. Treble is present but never crosses the line with ANY type of music. Is your amp super bright?

    It's more the artificial mids, didn't find them exaggeratedly bright. Hard to describe but I find those anything but relaxed, like very excited / in your face in fact. Highly personal I think, albeit there seems to be a consensus that the kb100 for example are "laid back" which I find too, so probably not only me.

    I haven’t tried the NewBees but I have TRN and KZ and they’re both great quality for less than $2 for 6. The KZ look like they have a slightly wider bore than the TRN and the NiceHCK and Tin HiFi foams. They’re all fairly close though.

    Well for me the BA10 is smooth as butter in comparison the Pro gets a little bright on the top end and the low end gets a little loose but this is just how these two sound for me and honestly I prefer my ZS7 to the Pro.

    If anyone thinks the AS10 are bright.....then fill your ear canals with cotton before listening to the A10. After owning the AS12 and A10 my AS10 are virtually unlistenable. I find the entire treble region stepped down too much to the point it feels separate from the midrange and everything below.

    I just ordered the ZS7 and the respective 16 core, TRN T2, 2.5 mm

    I have no idea why I'm thinking this might be a positive tweak on my Moondrop KPE's sound signature. But my Radsone ES100 should be more than able to EQ out any excessive sparkles that some reviewers have mentioned.

    Edit:
    Oh yeah, it's posts like this: :beerchug::gs1000smile:

    Nope...but I get where you're coming from. My wallet is too filled up with cards, to make it comfortable to put back there. I keep it in my backpack, and usually only take the cards I need into the store I'm shopping at. Always in side pockets, btw. Anyone who gets THAT close to me, is guaranteed gonna get punched in the face!
     
  12. courierdriver
    Yeah, nice choice. I agree...the ES100 should work great with the ZS7. Do try to make use of that 2.5 balanced out. I have found balanced almost always sounds better than 3.5. Let us all know what you think about the ZS7, when you get them, and have had a chance to evaluate with your new cable.

    You have read where I also state I’m not treble sensitive in the least right? Just want to state everyone does not here them the same or as I do! I feel a little pressure especially if they are not what you are expecting but at the same time they may and of course that 16 core will have them looking as good as they sound:beerchug:

    Fit is everything and a lot of people have trouble getting a good fit and seal. Especially with the Roxanne and good fit and deep insertion is critical or the sound is all messed up, I have musician fit and had to have material added past the first bend to get a great seal...it’s a pain in the ass..
