How do you pack 6 drivers per side, giving you truely mind-blowing sound? That's really a challenge. But to do it at this price point? You can be easily fooled to believe it's a joke. There could be a Zero missing in the price. But that's KZ for you.

KZAS12 pleasantly surprised.

KZAS12
Off the Bat, I would like to thank Headphone Zone. I got the shipment in farthest state of India Arunachal Pradesh in a week’s time.
Now, the KZAS12 is my first experience with any Chi-fi, and to be frank I had no clue of their sound.
I also bought Shanling UP4 DAC along to drive them.
I was pleasantly surprised by the details I could hear. In the beginning it was a bit harsh for my liking but the Bass and mids were there to compliment. Though it has 6BAs (Balanced Armatures) 2 each for Bass,Mid and high, after few hours in days of listening…I felt the changes that you get after burn ins like those of dynamic drivers. Well I don’t know for sure but that’s how I felt. And I am no professional audiophile.
I like details and space in my music. I own a Grado SR225 for last 10 years along with other sennheisers and Sonys/Bose and 225 served me quite well and ve been my go to headphone for moments of serious listening. And TBH, this KZAS10 are quite capable and fun IEMs. And I am continuously listening through it since the day I received it. It is surely a V shaped IEMs but can throw lot of details with good mids and bass. The highs could bother some…But
than I came across a software named SoundID and installed in my Mac and it just changed the entire landscape of this IEMs. The Bass became more rounded and punchier and the highs pleasantly recessed.
All in all I am happy..It’s amazing value for money. This is at par with any hi-end EarPods and I mean it cos I have apple AirPods Pro and I reach more to this KZs when I am listening to my music. For convenience of course AirPods are amazing but we are here for Music, And while I am writing this review I am listening to Buddy Guy “I need you tonight” with KZAS10 and I am loving it.
Thank you Headphone Zone for your service for bringing amazing irresistible cans and ear pieces for us to go Bankrupt..LOL. Thank You.

Very good product and nice one

Super! (not an audiophile)

I had KZ AS10 before these, which I accidentally broke. Impressed by the brand, I decided to get another KZ, and went for AS12 (which was just 1K more at the time of purchase). AS10 is great on its own, however, the improvement for adding another 1K is beyond expectations. My observations are from a casual listener's perspective, and not free from subjectivity.

PROS:
Great sound, arguably one of the best at this price
Solid build quality (earpieces)
Though they weigh more than AS10, comfort level feels same
Work well with FIIO M3K
No issues wearing with spectacles

CONS:
Cable is not tangle free (tangle resistant at best)
Mic is not good (okay for general calls)
Over ear loop is not soft, may experience slight discomfort for a day or two
