Tried the KZ ATES on my brand new HTC 10 and I must say they sound much better now!
Bass is less boomy and everything is balanced.
The memory wires make them my N1 for sports, even the mpow I received pop up with the hooks and are nowhere as good sounding

  Anyone knows the difference between ATE and ATE-S?
 
thanks.


Other than ATE-S had memory wire, I think some page back someone said ATE-S had more bass than older, vented ATE. I have no idea if the current batch of ATE (non vented, no memory wire) sounded same with ATE-S.

I was wondering if this store is legit:
http://www.aliexpress.com/store/1158387

​Forgot to ask, I'm currently using the same Meelectronics M6 since 2012 but they're almost destroyed. I only use them for jogging/biking, and to be honest I don't care that much about sq when I'm moving around. Is the KZ ATE-S a good alternative?

Today I uncover the grill at the nozzles of the EDR2 and take out the foam pieces. I must say that it sound more aggressive with sharper high but clearer, the clarity and mid also improved. If you want them soft and warm then better keep it.

hi sorry for the noob-ish question :frowning2:
i was searching for the KZ ATE online and i came across this one:

after searching through this thread about the diff versions of the ATE, i became very confused and paranoid @_@
is the ATE pictured above the one with the breathing hole? i cant tell if that small piece is a support piece or a hole or whatever D:
thanks!!!!

If You want to tame the "sharp" highs littlebit, then use narrower bore tips :wink: For me large bore tips + removed foams is better result.
