The KZ ZSTx

Won't take much of your time so I'll dive right in to the review. Comfort wise they are perfect. At least for my ears but I'm pretty sure it'll fit most of you out there. The earphones are made of plastic shells which look sturdy and can resist your usual wear and tear. The cable is also of the decent quality. But none of the things are the selling point of these headphones. KZ promises audio quality and delivers it! These are not your usual ear candy earphones like boat, sony, redmi, realme, etc and if you prefer that sound signature don't buy it. But if you prefer a clean audio with tight bass airy highs these are the headphones for you. The miss are also present but a bit laid back in the mix. I'd rather call them U shaped rather than V shaped. It lets you hear little details in your music you've never heard before. All in all of you want a balanced headphones these should be my pick and I've used literally every earphone under 2k price braket including rha ma390, soundmagic e10c, 1more piston, ath clr100, cx275s and many more and none of them even come close to what sound quality which these provide.

Omg its a real surpirse

I bought kz zstx qnd wrote review that buds are not that great. To my surprise i recieved comply foam tips for free.
What kind of hospitality is this. I have bought a lot of stuff from several so called e com giants. But i never received any reply even from sellers. Now comes this great website headphone zone. Just with a review they sent me free earbuds. Its still unbelievable for me. Headphone zone. You're the best . And I'm really very very very satisfied now. Thank you Raghav. Your amazing

Best Budget offer

This is my first IEM and it exceeded my expectations. After going through several online reviews I decided to go for ZSTx over Shure SE215, I was not doing wrong. This is just mindblowing.

Build quality is good, not the best. Made of plastic, the writings on the bottom are slowly fading away after a month's usage. Cable is super flexible and it flexes like a chain, it makes it super tagly. This is the biggest con for me. Everytime I find it tangled when I take out of the case, always a take a minute or two to untagle.
This IEM fits in my ears very well, it won't fall off as the cable hooks into the ears very well.
I don't use earphones for calls, but this one has a mic, which is useful if you have the habit of using earphones as your phone's mic.

Sound :
I am not an audiophile or an expert, I'm just writing what I felt like, My previous headphones were, old Sony MDR cassette walkman headsets, Earpods, Beats Studio Monster, ATH M50X etc. I've also used Airpods and few JBL, panasonic, Xiaomi headsets. ZSTx is the latest addition to my list. This beats every other models I've ever used. The sound is incredible. I'm using a Redmi Note 7S and a high end gaming PC as my primary audio sources. I've tested this with Mac book pro as well.

I'm using Poweramp on the phone, with the EQ modded this sounds incredible, with the Mac this was even better without tweaking the EQ. Everything is well detailed, instrument seperation is very good, sound stage is wide.
Even though it's mentioned as a V shaped sound, I feel it's bright sounding. Trebles are sparkly and crystal clear. I could hear a lot of stuff which I weren't noticing before with my other headsets. Thanks to the BA drivers.
Mids are clear and good,
I don't recommed this for bassheads. having said that, there is enough bass and it's punchy, won't dissappoint.

Overall this IEM is an incredible value for money. Decent build quality, exceptional sound which is super rare at this price point. Actually it's better than many higher priced models.
Highly recommended.

Mark of EXCELLENCE in budget category IEMs

First of all a big thanks to HEADPZ team for the unexpected fast delivery service 👍🏻. I live in Delhi and I’ve received this product within 48hours so, a big plus for that. Secondly, this is my first IEM and i must say its worth every penny. Its comfortable & super light weight, you'll be able to hear most of the details easily but Highs are some how AGGRESSIVE and SHARP (at 70-80% volume) and yes these earphones are louder than any other earphones. Bass is present but not boosted so, stayaway from this product if you are coming from that genre because you won’t be excite after listening to these (Bass enthusiasts go for sony extra bass series). IEM are like that only, even though this particular pair provides impressive BASS structure rather than most of the other IEMs which are known for truly balanced sound signature provides almost flat bass. At the end, i must say I’m impressed of what the KZ ZST X can do in terms of sound and comfort. The music is much enjoyable now. Thanks Headphonezone team.

A MUST HAVE!

Being an audio engineer, I have properly used and tested a plethora of earphones and headphones! I was in need for a good IEM, One of colleague suggested to go for the ZSTx; hence I ordered it right away after looking at the affordable pricetag! The shipping was quick and secured. And when I plugged them! BOOM! I was blown away by the result. I have used much expensive earphones before, But I never felt that it costs less than 2k! Just amazing. Highly recommended to get you started!

KZ-ZST X (Review after a week)

After using stuff like CX180 for a few years, i decided to go with something different and this seemed to be one of the best intro IEMs available. So i decided to go with this and here's my take after a week of usage -
PROS
1. The highs and mids are quite clear & well defined (because of the BA driver).
2. To put it on and off is something that is a bit difficult for those who are not used to it but once you put it on, it sits firmly and does not cause any pain.
3. Even after prolonged usage (around 4 to 5 hours) i didn't face any discomfort. With my previous earphones, i used to develop quick ear fatigue.
4. This piece is not for people who expect a "thumping" "boomy" bass sound, the bass is just enough for me because i don't like sound to be very bass dominant.
CONS
5. The cable looks a bit flimsy imo, hope it lasts for sometime at least.
6. The mic quality (though it is decent) could've been improved.

Vastly exceeded expectations!

I didn't expect the zst x to sound anywhere close the way they actually sound. I'm not an audiophile but i do have a wide range of headphones and earphones from beyerdynamics to RHA etc at my disposal and this pair can easily match earphones that cost a lot more.

PROS:
1) Wide soundstage
2) Good instrument separation
3) Good Vocal separation
4) Good balanced bass
5) Price!!!

CONS:
1) Need to tune the EQ to get most out of the sound - sound starts distorting after a certain threshold so work it accordingly.

Mind blowing purchase 👌

I have not yet expected this much pristeen and sufficient bass in my budget under 2k, I really got fully satisfied by this earphones. These are very comfortable for daily use and we can carry anywhere, the built quality is superb with light weight.
I am not an audiophile but I am a music lover, these earphones are enough for the biginers, some people said in review that bass is not sufficient but it's very balanced and presteen, every instrument we can hear clearly, I used many other brands like Senneheiser, Sony, Sound magic, Bayer dynamic and RHA but in this budget these are highly recommendable, heart fully you can go for it, it doesn't disappoint you, you can enjoy high quality loud audio.
I purchased many earphones from headphone zone, they are really doing a great service to the customer, I claimed my warranty for RHA S500 after using two years, I got new one and they did great service. Thank to the headphone zone team, you are very trustful. Coming to the delivery, you are excellent more than Amazon prime delivery, I got it through Bluedart within 48 hours, it's really surprising me the way you are serving to the customer with as and when updates. The parking is also superb.
I love music and trust only headphone zone because they sell only genuine products and the headphone Guru's are working with honesty towards customer interests when they are confused to purchase headphones.they suggest good one according to our budget and interest.
Thank you 🙏

Great headphones if you don't want a bass heavy headphones

Was looking for something that isn't as bass heavy as generic headphones. For the price, a really great pair of headphones, right from the looks, to the sound quality. The braided cable feels very robust and of a very good quality.

The only con I'd say for these is the way you put on the headphones. Even after over a month of use, it still takes time to put these on.

Barring that, a really great pair of headphones.
