Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

  1. SomeGuyDude
    Anyone know what diameter nozzle the ZSX has? Looking to pick up a set of Spinfits but it seems like they're a bit wider than my P1 and I don't want to choke the sound with narrow bores.

    OK, you got me! :raised_hand::yum::crown::thumbsup:...Clear Cute Awesomeness!


    I was born for this! ...Though, I wish it was my company! :ksc75smile:

    They are ~6mm. @Keputs uses the CP155 on the ZSX.

    Awesome! Thank you. I put a pair of CP100 on and holy hell the sound turned into a woolly mess.

    Came in today, boy these are amazing! The treble is the highlight, the sparkle and detail are amazing. The separation is great. The build quality is the best I've seen on a KZ, though I cannot say the same for the stock cable, got the yinyoo 8 core cable to go with it and its perfect! Btw, would recommend getting the cable with the qdc angled connector since the normal one's plug doesn't sit flush... IMG_20190925_201613.jpg IMG_20190925_201516.jpg

    So not a good combo for you? What's so special about these tips compared to original?

    I always fit foam tips on my IEM's because the standard tips irritates (always hurts my right ear canal)

    By the way I find the ZSX not fatiguing in the highs like some reviewers said.
    "Dance Monkey" opened a new dimension in airiness with the KZX's nice...

    The CP100 is just too narrow is the thing. It's channeling the sound through a much smaller pipe than the stock tips, which causes the bass to boost and mask everything else. The stock tips are the right width so they're a lot more open, they're just not particularly comfy.

    That's kind of like how a compression driver works, increasing the sound pressure to achieve higher efficiency.

    On the topic of upgrade cables, my favorite part of them is how supple they usually feel compared to stock, and that nice tangle free droop. Feels very luxurious

    As some have pointed out, it’s like jewelry for your earphones :)

    I never understood why people think it's bad that headphones can also be a fashion accessory. If you can make 'em look pretty and stylish, that's a great bonus.

    Hey man
    I know you have the Bluetooth cable and have done a mod on it

    Have you done anything to shorten the cable by any chance?
    It's so damn long, I used to have the jaybirds x3 and while they were horrible and disconnected all the time, I could shorten it to the point that they wouldn't hang at all, and be pretty tight to the back of my head

    Also, do you know if there's a way to remove the memory wire?

    Ps: I did all your mods on the shl 3300, turned out great pair of cans

    Just received my ZSX and i'm hearing a slight hiss on both the earphones when playing at low volumes (on both stock and the gold-silver upgrade cable) (used a Macbook and a Note 5 to test sound) and I was just wondering if I may have connected the earphones incorrectly (R is on the Right earphone and the R is facing outwards):

    In terms of in-phase and out-of phase testing using this test, does the out-of-phase sound test sound louder compared to in-phase for others?

    Listening to this song on the ZSX is absolutely a bliss.

    Yeah, I do enjoy my ZS10 PRO with metal. Sabbath and Dio sound killer with this set. So does Iron Maiden and Tool. They are easy to EQ if you want to, and respond well to it. Personally, I don't feel the need to buy either the ZSX or CCA 12. At the moment, I'm drawn more to the Nicehck DB3, BLON 3 and the TRN V90. I'm looking to add different sound signatures to my iem profile, so I'm not really looking for more KZ stuff. Who knows though...I might be tempted on 11/11 to get a ZSX or CCA12 too.
