    Does the ZS7 have significantly more bass than the ES4?

    But then there's the upgrade cable, case and different tips. So 6 or 7 lattes in the end :)

    The TRI i4 with tape mod has excellent bass, similar to the ZS7.

    Hi guys,

    I'm a new KZ user. I have the KZ ZS7, and the KZ ZS10 Pro is on the way.

    I have ordered a new cable for the ZS10 Pro, this one here, because it seems like it might be an improvement over the stock cable (and it is cheap).

    Is this a good choice? I see that there are a million other choices for the ZS10 Pro, including the TRN 16 Core Cable, and the KZ 8 Core Silver Cable. I have almost no experience with replacement cables. Would any of these be a good choice? I just want to bring out more detail, and maybe tame any shrillness.

    My bigger problem is finding replacement tips. If SpinFits are good, how do I know which one is best? There are many choices on Ali, but I am not sure about size.

    --

    Also, I am having issues with my ZS7. I think I put the prongs in reverse fashion, and they might have been out of phase. So I switched them up (always being very careful to align L/R facings), and it's a little better. But man, that memory cable is annoying. So I've ordered this cable to replace it. Will it be an improvement? Also, the fit is less than perfect, and I don't want to use up a Comply (medium) tip on them. Are there any decent foam tips from AliExpress that will work? I need to tame its piercing treble.

    Okay, looking through the thread, I guess this cable is good for the ZS10 Pro. I could pick it up, in addition to what I have.

    And sorry, that should read 'piercing highs' of the ZS7, not necessarily 'piercing treble.' It's tips that are the toughest for me to find. I need to tame those suckers.

    EDIT: Crap, this and this might be the same cable.

    Those are the same cable. That KZ cable is fine for the ZS10 Pro. You just need to select C pin for ZS10 Pro

    Ok, good, thanks. I did select C type when I ordered it, so I should be okay.

    The stock starline tips work well for me

    You've pretty much memorialized what goes through my head, every time that I start reading the threads. On what's next :L3000:

    For which pair though? I think I have small ears or something because using the starlines on the ZS10 Pro are comfortable but they work themselves loose after a while unless I'm very still.
    Same with the ED16's.

    I put Mee Audio double-flanges on the ED16's & I really like those now.
    Haven't found the magic pair for the ZS10 Pro's yet...........the Mee double-flanges still slipped loose after a while because they are much heavier than the ED16's.

    If you aren't adverse to foam, checkout New Bee or RIYO, on Amazon
