I'm about to gift my Dad a Bluetooth cable for his KZ ZSN Pro. Which KBear S1 variant should fit better on the ZSN Pro's Paragraph C cable? "2 Pin" or "TFZ" one?? Thanks
how do these KBear BT adapters compare to the KZs? do these have lower noise floor?

Absolutely!
That would be as if standing right next to cymbals - high overtones are there and overwhelming.
High overtones decay fast, so over some distance cymbals are more listenable.
Went to a solo performance by the amazing Evelyn Glennie once. These sounds have to be felt as well as being heard. Never been quite the same after that - in a good way! :)

So the KZ ZAX is out now on Ali KZ Official store for $60

Screenshot_20200827-214650.jpg
That's...easily at least $20 less than I would have thought. They're still a bit more expensive than the CA16 but with meaningful specs differences - the vents should make them sound more open, the DD is 10mm and not 7mm, and they once again have a 30095 in the nozzle. Though that might be more of a con. The main thing is that they look much nicer, especially the black ones. The ZAX wasn't a thing when I ordered my CA16, otherwise I'd have waited.

I'm really exited for these!
If the tuning is similar to the CA16 these could be a real winner

So that's why the name ZAX rang a bell in my head... I guess that means I have to get them at some point now.

The black version does look sick. Someone at KZ has really stepped up in the design department this year, what with the ZSN Pro X, C10 Pro and now this.

I was hoping there would be no BA in the nozzle of that KZ ZAX so I might pass but will wait on impressons.
