DESCRIPTION

INNOVATIVE ELECTROSTATIC TECHNOLOGY DELIVERING SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE

KZ ZEX has been engineered from the ground up to deliver superior performance in terms of sound reproduction. The way it is achieved is by employing cutting edge low voltage electrostatic technology in the ZEX. Designed to house a speaker utilising electret driver technology, this delivers consistent and stable sound. Utilising this technology, the ZEX can deliver high-density sound and clarity while reducing distortion levels to a minimum. Benefit from the high-density sounds and hi-res audio performance of the electrostatic KZ ZEX with better vocal resonance, louder and clearer sounds.

ELECTROSTATIC + DYNAMIC DRIVER HYBRID CONFIGURATION FOR PRISTINE AUDIO QUALITY

The KZ ZEX features a unique configuration and combination of driver units, encasing one 6.8mm electrostatic driver and one 10mm dual magnetic dynamic driver that delivers professional-grade sound. The low-voltage electrostatic driver handles the reproduction of high frequencies and ultra-high frequencies, while the dual magnetic dynamic driver is responsible for the mid-frequency and the low frequency. The magnetic force of the dynamic driver added is higher than a standard dynamic driver, this allows for balanced sound distribution. The electrostatic driver ensures much more stable transmission and delivers outstanding reproduction. The combination of the electrostatic and dynamic driver allows the ZEX to accurately reproduce sounds from 20Hz to 40kHz, allowing you to enjoy your music with lifelike clarity.

EXPERIENCE LOW DISTORTION AND STABLE PERFORMANCE IN A EASY TO DRIVE EARPHONE

Comparing the electrostatic driver in the KZ ZEX with a balanced armature driver, the low-voltage electrostatic driver, namely electrets, offers lower distortion and is easier to drive. The performance of low-voltage electrostatic technology, quality and consistency are much more stable than dynamic & balanced armature. The biggest challenge for audio equipment is to provide an accurate sound image with lower THD (harmonic distortion). Electrostatic tweeters can solve the long-standing problem of THD in hybrid driver earphones because they can output sound with lower distortion than balanced armature drivers that offer similar functionality and the KZ ZEX achieves just that. The low voltage electrostatic technology makes it easy to drive the earphone with just 25 Ohms of impedance, allowing it to perform with even a cellphone.

HIGH-QUALITY DETACHABLE SILVER-PLATED CABLE WITH 2PIN CONNECTOR

The cable included with the KZ ZEX is of high quality and delivers a distortion-free audio signal. A flat silver-plated cable comes bundled with the ZEX, and this cable enhances audio performance and reduces the loss of signal during transmission. This cable has lower impedance and features a sturdy design making it durable and offering a longer usage life. These cables feature a 2Pin connector on one end and a 3.5mm connector on the other, allowing for easy connectivity with various devices and even allowing for upgradability. The connector plugs are gold platted reducing distortion and allowing for cleaner audio transmission.

FAST BURN-IN TIME AND HD CONDENSER MIC WITH QUICK CONTROL FUNCTIONS

The newly developed KZ ZEX features a low-voltage electrostatic driver which is engineered in a manner that just listening to the earphone for 5 minutes is enough to stimulate the potential of the unit. This is truly unheard of and only a little current is needed to show strong performance potential. The included cable with the KZ ZEX features a high-quality microphone for receiving calls and communication. This microphone is a condenser mic capable of transmitting high definition audio. There are quick-access functions assigned to the button in the microphone housing and it allows for receiving calls, rejecting calls, playing/pausing music and changing the songs played. This is truly useful as you don’t need to access your devices to execute these used functions.

ZEXy

distortion levels are significantly lower than other similarly priced iems, ig it's the EST drivers doing their magic, highs are crispy. Mainly v-shaped sound but sometimes flat. You can hear the bass but you don't feel it. I personally don't find bass-boosted headphones enjoyable, so these are great for me.
Comfort is good, with the right kind of tips you can wear these for hours.
I'm not a big fan of L-shaped connectors, they make use with phones a bit uneasy but not a big deal.
Decent mic, good for calls and zoom meetings.
Overall great product.

EDX pro shine brighter than the ZEX

The trebble was rolled off and lacked shine in the upper freqs and the vocals seemed slightly more recessed than the EDX pro. The bass was adequate and deeper than the EDX pro but not as punchy.
I'm quite surprised that KZ does a better job with its 1 DD entry level earphones than with this tech that seems so cutting edge but failed to keep its promise.
Would not say that these r bad by any stretch of imagination but they really didn't feel like an upgrade over their entry level IEMs.
If this happens to be your first purchase you won't be disappointed and might rather enjoy the audio experience but if you're a fan of the KZ signature sound which can be sibilant to some you will begin to see where the angst comes from.
EDX is clearer and makes you sit up but are fatiguing and slightly sibilant, less so than the ZSTX or pro but still enough to make you want to halt a music binge for a break.
The ZEX gives up a tiny bit of that clarity to add a laid back character to the earphones and makes it better for longer sessions of listening due to the rolled of highs that don't cause discomfort.
Hope this helps!!!

Great for starters

Newbie to iem's here. My last best pair of earphones was mi dual driver earphones. A big upgrade from there. Build quality and everthing is great. Though I did run into an issue when listening to flac audio (less noticable on low quality files). Vocals in some/most track are a bit toward right ear. You can test it in Nadaan Parinde from Rockstar. Upon research I found that quite a number of equipments are affected. Can go through this forum here https://www.head-fi.org/threads/vocals-usually-more-on-the-right-side-than-left.590419/ . Overall a must buy.

KZ ZEX

These are a bit dark sounding IEM. Kind of like KZ EDX. Fit and comfort is good. Price should've been little less. Distortion is minimal. Can use phone to drive them.

Pretty good value for money!

I've used a variety of earbuds before, some of which are :
Sennheiser cx180
Realme buds 2
Cowon em1
House of marley
Sony xb55ap
Sony mdr-xb50ex

And these definitely sound the best from what I can recall.
You will need to eq them but they're very responsive to the eq unlike some others I've used.

The eartips are meh, they're fine but I'd have preferred something better.
