With a pair of headphones with this sound signature, you can hear audio with clarity and detail. The sound is vivid and revealing, a perfect mixture of instruments and vocals, lows, mids, and highs. This sound signature works for most music listeners who like switching between various music genres like Classical, Jazz, Blues, Rock, Folk and Pop.

If you’re someone who is looking to listen to music without worrying too much about the technicalities, then these are the perfect fit for you. You can expect these headphones to conveniently work and pair with most devices like Smartphones and Laptops without needing an Amp or DAC. These offer the ultimate convenience, but we believe that if you care about an immersive listening experience and audio quality, these are not for you!

Ideal for Commuting

If you’re someone who enjoys listening to music while commuting, then you know the value of a good pair of headphones or earphones. These headphones allow you to listen to your favourite track, make that important call on the go or even block out the world for a focused podcast listening experience. You can expect these headphones to offer a seamless connectivity experience via a wired connection or a wireless one. They are lightweight in design and provide isolation or noise cancellation as an added functionality.

Ideal for Taking Calls

These headphones are designed to present how audio tech, typically associated with listening to music, can be used for two-way communications.

You can expect these headphones to offer brilliant microphone quality and clear audio without having to connect additional peripherals. Just plug them in, and express yourself.

Replaceable Cables

A pair of headphones with a replaceable cable has many benefits, and one of them is if the connecting cable has a problem, it doesn’t mean that you have to buy a new one. If the connecting cable gets pulled or damaged, you can replace it and keep using your good-old headphones or IEMs. This way, your headphones will be protected and will last longer. With the advancements in cable manufacturing, you now get a variety of replacement cables with various termination options, lengths and quality.

Works with Android & iOS

One thing all of our phones have in common is that they have replaced the portable media player. These headphones and devices are perfect to pair with your Android and iOS devices and offer functionality previously unknown.

You can expect these headphones and devices to connect seamlessly without any hassle and even offer OS-specific functionality depending on the device. Headphones and devices designed to work with Android and iOS come in wired and wireless formats. Quite often you will also find Hi-Fi equipment offering direct connectivity to devices with Android and iOS to simplify the connectivity process.

Tangle-Free Cables

Every time you reach for the headphone cables to connect them to your headphones, and no matter how neatly you wrapped them up, they end up in a giant Gordian knot of frustration. Tangled cables are the bane of modern existence, and everyone owning a wired pair of headphones or IEM can attest to this. With advances in cable making techniques and radical approaches to manufacturing, there are now several solutions to this universal problem. You get Flat cables, Mesh Design cables, cables coated with exterior covers and cables designed with a zipper style design to avoid Tangle and attempt to solve the issue.

Super Lightweight Design

When you want to be constantly hooked to your music, you’d need a pair of lightweight headphones – one that you can wear and forget about instead of one that keeps pressing you down with its weight. And contrary to popular belief, the sound quality of your headphones doesn’t change with weight. Recent designs have combined durable, yet light materials to construct lightweight headphones that are sleeker, trendier and more comfortable than ever before. Of course, lightweight headphones are also easy to take along wherever you go – they don’t add weight to your bag or occupy too much space.

Not for small ears

Pros : Good imaging, decent sound stage,nice rumbling sub bass. Neutral tuning. Good instrumental separation.
Overall it has very good sound quality.
It requires a 20 hours of burn in to get the full sound.
A better sounding earphone than blon bl 03, kz dq6, tripowin mele.
You hardly get this kind of tuning in this price bracket.
Though It has an unnecessary pick at 8k and it overpowers on others .so go to equaliser and pull down 8k.

And finally... finally.. They have changed the eartips. And it is good and improved. Thumbs-up for that.

Cons : The size of this earphone is humongous. It comes out of the ear.
It has fin like kz dq6 which start paining after sometime.
Not at all comfortable to wear.

Pros : A decent sound stage, good rumbling sub bass, decent amount of bass. Nice instrumental separation. Neutral tuning. You hardly get this type of tuning in this price bracket.
Overall it has a very good sound quality.

Definitely sounds better than, kz dq6, blon bl 03, tripowin mele. Though it has a unnecessary pick at 8k and it overpowers other. So go to equalizer and pull down 8k a little.
It requires a 20 hours of burn in to get the full sound.

Con : The size of the earphone is humongous. It literally hangs from ears. And it has fins like kz dq6 and it starts paining after sometime. Not at all comfortable to wear.
And finally kz has improved the eartips and it is really good.

Verdict : No issues with sound quality and built quality. Issue is with it's size. If you have small ears you can avoid.

Imperfectly perfect

The KZ x CRN or ZEX Pro, whatever you want to call them are a 3 driver in-ear monitors that are made by KZ Acoustics and by famous redditor and YouTuber Crinacle. I follow them on his YouTube channel and he runs the in-ear Fidelity subreddit which consists of the world's biggest database of frequency response graphs for IEMs. He has also partnered with Moondrop, Fiio, SeeAudio etc and most of his collaborations are exclusive to certain market and sellers. This one is different because this is a comparatively cheap iem and it's available everywhere. So, I had to buy them if it was available in India. Thanks for the folks at Headphonezone to bring this here.

Now, as per the iem itself. I would rate the build as above average. First I found the units itself as pretty huge. But now I have used it for a couple days now, they are fairly comfortable for me. The cable provided is quite nice. There are no cases included but you can grab a hard case from KZ itself here for a fairly cheap price.

As per the sound, I have become quite liked the sound reproduction of these. They are very balanced and I have heard KZ iems have fairly v-shaped tuning but these are very balanced. I think it's because of the Crinacle's tuning. I used my Blon bl-03 as my daily driver and compared to that, they have bigger soundstage. Blons are better in imaging and bass (both quality and quantity) but the scale and sense is much better in these. All in all, these are my kind of iems as i like to listen on very low volume and these are perfect for that purpose. Using these on ifi Zen DAC, they sound a big better but it's sufficient to drive these on phones and laptops. Be warned though, these had a bit weird sound out of the box and I am not an equaliser kind of guy but i have found online that eqing these with 8K down to 5db and 12K up to 10db (or in my case 16K up to 6.5db in Poweramp's equaliser) fixes tonality a lot. I highly recommend using eqing these if you looking to buy these because without this adjustment they sound a biy metallic and harsh in trebles. If you are looking for a balanced sound then you can definitely check this out as most of the iems in these price bracket are tuned V-shaped. All in all, a good product.

Hi Primesh Mohanty,
We are so happy you took out time & elaborately reviewed the product with a comparison. We are sure this will help our customers to make an even better & informed decision.

Got fast replacement and its AWESOME!

Ok, first of all, Kudos to the customer care at headphone zone. I bought the iems and sadly it became faulty under 10 days. I thought ill just hold on to it and try and buy a replacement cable just because i thought the replacement process will be a big hassle. I didnt expect the team at headphone zone would contact me directly. They provided me the best assistance, responded fast to every mail i sent and updated on every step in the replacement process. Got the replacement iems today and its just awesome. The soundstage felt much better than the previous one, seems like a good working unit. You can never expect this level of customer care from any other platform(believe me ive had many experience from other online sites.) The thing is they cared enough to contact me and provided me options to solve my problem. Thats the best thing i felt about this site. Even if they didnt replace the product with a brand new unit, these kind of communication between the customer and platform will make a lot of difference. In other platforms normally well have to book the replacement ourselves and stay behind it all the time till the product reaches back, but here, they booked the return themselves and was picked up the product in time. There was no hassle in my side. So thanks to the headphone zone for the wonderfull experience. Youve earned a life long loyal customer. Keep up the good work always!

Awesome!!

My first ever tuned IEM! Absolutely loved it! I don't know the audiophile jargon as i am relatively new to this world so I'll refrain from using terms i don't understand yet fully. Also, i struggled a lot while learning how to wear these IEMs properly. If Headphone zone could make a few tutorial videos that'd be great! Also i'd request buyers to try out all the different sizes of ear-tips as i wore incorrect ones for a long time only to eventually realize i was wearing the wrong size. Nonetheless, these IEMs sound great!!

Proper soundstage and neutral

They sound amazingly well. They are detailed, however the mids bunch up sometimes. It will help of you were listening to vocal based songs or orchestra. If it were rock/metal, the guitars do not sound , well, to the point. These are very minuscule issues. I am comparing headphones to this. I have ATH M50x, to base this off.

I am deducting a star, because of the comfort. It's big and takes time to put on. A bit too much hassle for me as they are over ear.
However, given the price point, these are absolutely scores. You cannot go wrong! Step aside sound magic e10 or Sennheiser or Sony. This is the new king under 3k!

Thank you for an elaborative review. We appreciate your honest review & ratings, Sumit Panda!

Sounds amazing, but a bit weird without the timbre fix.

Comfort is a bit subjective. They’re big. 3.5/5 for me.
Fit is very snug. 4.5/5 (I recommend using eartips that are shallow but big.)

Bass: 5/5
Mids: 4.75/5 (Male Vocals could have been better)
Highs: 4/5 (Timbre is weird. It feels kinda hollow.)
Soundstage: 4.5/5 (You won’t complain about it at all)
Imaging: 5/5
Instrument Separation: 5/5

The sound signature is following the Crinacle target, which is a smoother version of Harman.

There is a peak on 8kHz, and is missing some air in the 12kHz area.
The sound is almost perfect after EQing. I have tried EQFY and Poweramp EQ, but I found Wavelet to be the best for android.

Overall, best value for the money, and a taste for what you get as you move up the price ladder. These are great as a more “fun” IEM for someone who comes from dead neutral signatures and does not want to go V-shaped.

I was interested in this as it was a collab with crinacle and kz. It was an impulse purchase, but with over a few days of usage, it will get better since I already like it as it is now.

Original EQ adjustments that were recently shared by Crin, and the current EQ circulating around his discord as of 12 Jan 2022.
