DESCRIPTION

REDEFINING THE IEM ACOUSTIC ARCHITECTURE WITH A ONE-OF-ITS-KIND 24-DRIVER SETUP

A rare blend of 12 balanced armature units on each side of the KZ AST along with detailed acoustic adjustment ensures that the human vocals you listen to on these earphones sound rich and soothing. This also makes the highs sound natural while delivering a superior sound quality overall. The KZ Standard of unit curve tolerance breaks industry record with ±1dB.

ELEVATE TO PROFESSIONAL MUSIC LISTENING WITH UPSCALED SECOND-GEN BALANCED AMATEUR DRIVERS

Engineered with a combination of independently designed and developed high-frequency matrix BA, the KZ AST scales up its high-frequency performance to ensure that you do not miss finer practices of your favourite music. There were four significant upgrades that were made to the new-gen BA. First, the all-new 30017s balanced armature combination escalates medium and high frequency. Second, the fresh 30095s and 30019s BAs highlight details of high frequencies. Third, the highly optimised 29689s balanced armature unit that takes care of the mids. Fourth, the upgraded 22955s balanced armature unit that packs the power of three ordinary BA drivers, dedicated to low frequencies.
