I bought the zs6 but they sounded bad, maybe it was another v2 version?

Can you describe the sound, including what you didn’t like about them? The retuned version has much less treble, and is darker overall compared to the original ZS6.

Looks like a new face plate on colorful shells, what is the upgrade? Just the XUN driver? As you know I'm not sensitive to the higher registries and still enjoy my original Carbon ZST's very much:wink:

XUN dynamic driver, the newer 30095 BA that’s less sharp and sibilant than the old 30095, and a silver plated cable stock. And of course the new cyan color.

It also has a crossover, but I can’t remember if the ZST always had one. I seem to remember it didn’t. I will check tonight.

what are those pouches / bags ?

did you buy them on aliexpress ?

looks like I might need several of those - having the IEMs just lying around doesn't do them justice

thanks

Shanling M5s ($400) + ISN S8 cable ($35) + KZ AS10 ($40)
- Great combo for Rock or Metal music
- Yeah, AS10 sounds great with silver cable and neutral source.
But the M5s is a relatively warm dap

Well that cable is known for it's high especially treble extension so maybe the M5 is not quite as warm as some other cables:thinking: Not to mention we all do hear them just a little differently:wink:
