Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

  1. LaughMoreDaily
    I'm tired of people who say the EDR1 is more pleasing to listen to for them then the ZS7, etc. My Benjie S5 earbuds I got for free sound better than that "crap" iem.

    That’s another alternative for sure and my attitude is when KZ builds a new multi driver iem and uses new types of drivers its worth trying for me if it’s less than $50.

    Lol u guys complaining about buying KZ iems. Go back 5-8 years ago, you will be lucky to find iem that sound like what KZ offering right now with the same price. Before, you either have to go custom/universal custom to get to multi drivers iem and most under $200 was single driver or 2 drivers at most. If you are regretting getting all those KZs then my suggestion is to save that freaking money and just get the TOTL like campfire audio, 1964 audio, jh audio, etc and be done with it. For me, if I buy those $1000+ iem, I am too afraid to use them. Some people may even got ocd and wipe them off every minute or so lol (joke). And sadly, no perfect iem out there even with $1000+ price tag.

    I dont think things gone to s***, KZ still as good as ever, I would even dare to say they are better than ever.

    I think the issue here is that, at a point KZ got A LOT of followers and now, some years later, 2 things happened:

    - Competition got better
    - We have too many, too similar, Pokemons

    People are just looking at the Digimons!

    Thats a very good point and maybe the most important point.

    KZ basically made this market, other IEMs manufacturers had to compete either with prices or improving quality (or, you know, cramming more drivers).

    For my part I love KZ but dont trust their high end yet... But they are king on the sub $50 hybrid market.

    That was mostly a Joke... Normally when I read the 1st impression they are already on their way.

    Who else thinks the ZSN Purple is better than the CCA C10?

    It's musical, emotional feeling, natural sounding and sounds true to what the musician actually wants their music to sound like without having the sound screwed around with like other iems tend to do. It has to be one of the Top 5 KZ's.

    How does the ZSN Pro stand up to the Purple?

    Oh, you mean here?
    Well, I just start actually using in read/write mode recently... so maybe that was my fault.

    Got my new cable for the ZS10 Pro and a nice case I picked up off of Aliexpress that finally came in today! Im happy with it. Much less tangles with using this cable and case. Chi-fi never looked Fi-ner (please excuse my cheesiness) XD

    nah, its been like this for quite a while, which is why at this point reviews from trusted members will be more reliable than random impressions.

    budget IEMs will have more buyers, with lofty expectations of what budget IEMs can provide. can't be helped. People will be people.

    is that the KZ upgrade cable? or the qdc one from JCAlly?

    Those earbuds are really pretty good, surprisingly.

    You seem to be a very reasonable person. I think there are both quite a few people who are too quick to verse into snobism (anything less than 400$ won't do for jogging, oh look a KZ, disgusting) and a lot of uncalled for shilling (ZS10 pro is a Giant Killer!!!! Never heard TOTL iems but I'm 100% sure KZ is better!!! EVeRyoNe BuY BuY BuY!!!!!)

    I'm happy to have the ZS10 pro to exercise or walk in the rain. Amazingly comfortable and snug fit, lightweight, and well they look great, can't deny. Decent sound with some EQ in noisy conditions which are really not calling for super audiophile setup anyway, little benefit. No snobism needed.

    I can leave what I consider my better gear at home thanks to them.

    I have found a shop in aliexpress selling the KZ ED9 with ''3p'' eartips, is it the name of a special eartip or they just give 3 sets of eartips?
