Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

    Haha their logo looks the same as the usual KZ IEM logo.
    Are u sure this is not another subsidiary of KZ? Now instead of weekly IEM releases, there will be weekly bag and tote releases too.

    Or maybe they can release some mystery bag thingy that the aliexpress sellers like to do. With a real tote bag with KZ logo with a KZ pokemon IEM inside.

    I cant wait for a Blue T10 Pro tote to keep all my KZ's in.

    Waiting for full review, especially about tonality / timbre. Are they still steely?

    And they're finally here:


    Did a quick check with Tool's fear inoculum, Jinjer's pisces and Lacuna Coil's layers of time, and i must say i'm already in love with the tuning of the ZSR, love how they retain trhe sparkle but leaving out all and any harshness/excessive brightness. They also seem really comfortable, but i'll have to try them on a long listening session ans see if the bulbous stem becomes tiring with silicone tips (got some foamies on the way, will see how those fare).

    The ZSE arrived too, not too bad, but as axpected nowhere neare the ZST or ZSR sq wise. Still, a decent backup iem, although i might give mine to my sister, she needs a new pair of iems.

    I don't think with only 1 new BA addition will make their timbre any different than previous model. Unless they use wood as a body than maybe it will change the tonality/timbre.

    To fit the ZS10 Pro properly, you’ll need something with the Paragraph C or QDC plug. Otherwise, the pins will stick up really high off the plug, which is not really recommended.

    Your primary choices are:

    - KZ gold and silver braided 8-core cable (Paragraph C)
    - CCA red/white/blue SPC braided 8-core cable (Paragraph C)
    - JC Ally black braided 8-core cable (QDC)
    - HifiHear 16-core SPC braided cable (QDC)
    - KB Ear SPC braided 8-core cable (QDC)

    You’ll also have to determine if your source is single ended or balanced or not, to make sure you get the right source termination of the cable.

    What type and model source are you using your ZS10 Pro with? A phone, or DAP, or what?

    Just curious, any chance the Simgot EM connector fits over the Paragraph C post? Simgot post is about 2mm x 4mm.
  8. Slater
    Is the Simgot EM the same as the Simgot EN?

    My Simgot EN700 cable does fit onto the Paragraph C post, but it sits up on top of the socket.

    oh, there's only 1 new BA in the ZSX?

    I guess KZ lied about using 2 sets of the new DWEK dual-BA model

    Don't think so. EM cable has shrouds. Like I said post is around a 2 x 4 mm...

    I see now. Yeah, that looks totally different than the EN700 sockets.
  12. Slater
    They didn’t lie. By “1 more BA”, he meant 5 BA drivers instead of 4 (5-4=1 driver difference).
  13. Zerohour88
    so ZSX is basically ZS10 Pro with 1 added BA and no new BAs used?

    And here I thought they added 4 new mid-high DWEK BAs to replace the 2x50060 and 1x30095 BAs from ZS10 Pro
