    And what about CCA C12? Is it worse than KZ ZSX/ZS10 Pro?
  2. johanchandy
    From what I've read and from the reviews on youtube, a lot of people like the cca c12's slightly more than the zsx but some others think they are at the same level but just offer a slightly different sound signature so it's then a matter of which signature you prefer more. I personally adore the Zsx's with New Bee foam eartips. I even prefer them over my tfz t2's even though the youtuber Zpolt prefers his t2's over the zsx so ymmv (Zpolt also has a review of the cca c12's in which he compares them to the zsx).

    What multi driver model would be the best for bass heavy music? I do not prefer distorted and boomy bass but i would like something with great bass without sacrificing the rest in an unreasonable amount. Cheers

    KZ only or in general ?

    Of the multi driver IEMs in my collection I can recommend the KZ ZS7 and the TRN V90. Both have excellent bass and should suit you.

    Thank you i will do some research regarding those two.

    To avoid further confusion i am looking mainly at KZ because of their pricing and my good experience. Other brands that offer such gems under $100 are also welcome.
    Thank you.

    Also consider the BQEYZ BQ3

    Would you please help me choose a better cable for the CCA C12 headphones? I read that it pays to buy it (silver plated / gold plated?) Is it really worth it? Is there a significant difference in sound quality? Which would you recommend? If possible from Aliexpress. I don't know which one could fit me.
    Thank you

    You won't hear a difference in sound quality with a different cable unless the original cable is broken, wired out of phase, or sound is cutting out with movement. Cable resistance won't have an audible effect on the impedance curve of your headphones, especially if the device you're powering them with already has a fairly low output impedance. (My opinion, some disagree) That said, the stock cables are a tangly, uncomfortable mess. I got the KBear cable here for my ZSX(same connector) and it's very comfortable and doesn't tangle. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/33039401362.html
    I use the 3.5mm jack, QDC is the name of the connector type of the C12s.

    I second the above opinion that an upgrade cable for CCA C12 can improve ergonomics and aesthetics but hardly the sound (definitely not in my experience) especially of C12 since it was designed well to be used with a simple sources, like smartphones.

    Have a look over on CCA thread, on the last page there are a couple of upgrade cables I use.
    With images.

    This thread needs more pictures, so much talk and not enough pictures. I'm currently feeling the KSX right now. 20191128_175729.jpg
