Really good for the price

As advertised, Castor (bass) has better bass by default and when you use the turn switch, you can increase it much more. Out of the box, switches 3 and 4 were turned on. I turned them off to compare it against MoonDrop Chu 2 and I kind of still like Chu 2. I loved the foam tips though (experiencing it for the first time) and it gives a decent passive noise cancellation (isolation, maybe?)

The reason I'm giving 5 stars is because it is as promised. The bass is good and one can tune it using the turn switches (4 switches => 16 unique combinations) as per their liking.

For a similar budget, it's better to go with Chu 2 unless you want that extra bass or the ability to tune.

Hey Praveen, thank you so much for the amazing feedback! It means a lot to us. We are so happy to hear that you are loving our products and services.

KZ Best Sound Quality with better thump in Bass

I have already used KZ ZSN Pro X. Now i bought KZ Castor also. Below are the gears i used.

Mobile : One Plus 8T
DAC & Amp : iBasso DC03
Wireless Module : KZ AZ09 Pro

I have tested this with wired along with a DAC & Amp and also wireless using a wireless module as well. So obviously it sounds lot better with wired compared to wireless as i use DAC & Amp. Compared to KZ ZSN Pro X, bass is much better in Castor but mids are better in KZ ZSN Pro X. If you love to hear music with thump bass, better to go with KZ Castor. If you like it balanced, go with KZ ZSN Pro X. Also you have 4 tuning switches which you can use to customize the sound as per your taste. using these 4 tuning switches, you can create 16 sound stages. However you cannot see high change in these sound stages but you ll definitely see slight changes.

Overall a great chance of IEM with thump bass and that too pricing around 1800. A must go for bass lovers.

Thanks a lot for your detailed and genuine feedback, we're glad that you have such positive thoughts about the product and we'll share your thoughts with the brand as well. It'll also help our fellow customers to make the right choice!

Unbelievable bassy iem!

I have a fist of iems from ve monk to dq6, (lot of people like me stuck in under 3k iem segment! So don't know how 50k 80k segment sounds!) but never seen this type of clean bassy iem! Such a wide sound stage unbelievable! You can customize it as your taste. Push it to v shape or shine it as hi-fi iem or boss of the Bass! So many reviewed it takes 16 type customization (4x4!) But it's not true, only 4 styles you can mod it! first 2 switchs dedicated to bass last 2 dedicated to high frequencies. Don't confuse switchs are not aloted to particular frequency equalization it's just add some more decibels to bass segment or treble.
Value for money. Underrated duel dd.
Must buy.

Hey Dixit, thanks a lot for this lovely review and we are glad you are enjoying it! Keep the music playing.

Simply awesome

I've used 7hz salnotes zero. I missed the punchy sound, so I've exchanged that with kz castor. Like the way it sounds. Bassy heads will love it. You can expect a decent bass. Not soo much bass compared to boat, Sony earphones.

Thank you for your review of our KZ - Castor earphones! We're glad to hear that you're enjoying the punchy sound and bass of our product. We appreciate your support and hope you continue to enjoy using our earphones. Happy listening!
