I've only got the ZST and for the price it's great but I'm interested in their higher end models.
Any suggestions?

Just an advice for people new to the hobby : don't buy a 80$ cable for a 30$ KZ. Spend that money on better IEMs. Seriously.
At least this one has free shipping:

That cable would make my ZS10 sound better, right?

uh oh, 5BA per side in a ZS series? my ZS7 and ZS10 Pro's gonna be obsolete, GG...
I am secretly hoping ZSX has the ZS7 tuning for its DD+4BA but with that one extra BA balancing out the treble roll off... fingers crossed! of course i am all for more sub bass unz unz unz unz bahahaha!

There are no besties, everything is very subjective.
If i have to be honest, i cannot decide between ZS10 Pro and ZS7 for my tastes.
In this case i just do one thing: i leave both on my desk and take my EDR1 with me :D
I have two ZS7s and one ZS10 Pro, you know which is my favorite...

i am a bass head, but to be honest, if I listen to ZS10 Pro as the first IEM of the day, its bass is respectable, but that ZS7 sub bass tho...!

Blimey. Makes Daniel Johnston sound overproduced.

ZS10 Pro are superb imho, but i prefer ZS7 for personal use (mixed gaming and music)

I listen loads of heavy bass music (midtempo, Dubstep and so on), i feel you

Does anyone know the driver complement of the new ZSX? I would like to see 1DD (the new Tesla type), 2x29689 mid BAs, 1x31005 mid/high (as in the ZS7) and 2 x 31736 for the treble. I would like ZS7 sub-bass, no mid bass hump and a softer more detailed treble than the ZS10 Pro. And will the CCA C12 be the same? We shall see...
Well I’d we look at the differences between the C10 and the ZS10 PRO there’s a very different tuning so I’m betting on the CCA and KZ brothers to have enough differences to warrant both models existing. Now which one will me you or the other guy prefer is the real question. I was expecting the KZ ZSX to be released by now considering when they announced it. It’s been more than a month. Hopefully KZ makes both models special and is out to show the rest of the Chi-Fi world who is the King Boss of the landscape.

Yes, I agree. The ZS10 Pro and C10 are very different. The ZS7 is different again. I think KZ could improve on the venerable 30095 treble BA in the new model and I think a BA to fill in between the 29689 and treble units would be a good idea to narrow the range covered by the other BAs and help them operate in their best zones. I would expect that judging on what has gone before that the KZ will be more V-shaped and the CCA will adopt a more neutral tuning.

I've not tried amping my "non-pro" (amateur?) ZS10 but I have had good results using my Blons and my Tin T2 with my Little Dots. As for my Sennheiser IE60, amped up is the only way they sound anywhere close to as expensive as all of my other IEMs combined. Straight from the phone they go plenty loud enough but they sound worse than my Blons and no better than my Tins or ZS10.
I find the BLON BL-03 really benefits from a bit of extra power. It brings out that superb speed the BLONs have and tightens things up.

I have the ZST Pro and ZSN (non-Pro) and I'm eager to purchase another KZ earphone. What would you all consider to be the best value earphone as of now?

Hey guys, i was wondering, what's the difference among the various kz lines?
Like, does each line (zs, ba, as) target a different kind of sign signature?

Also, how do cca iems compare to kz on average? Smoother? Brighter? Bassier? More or less detailed?
