Breaking Free from Audiophile Shackles

Going through the traditional technical review is not gonna do justice to khan, so sharing my general thoughts...

I've tried a lot of budget IEMs in the past, always looking for the best sound quality. But I realized that I was missing out on something important - the FUN

That's where the Khan comes in. This IEM is so much different to listen to, I feel like a kid again. The subwoofer really brings out the bass in a way that just makes you want to dance. And even though the tweeter driver is small, the soundstage is surprisingly wide.

But more than that, it's the overall listening experience that makes the QKZ X HBB Khan stand out. It's not just about the technical aspects of sound quality - it's about how the music makes you feel. And let me tell you, this IEM makes me feel great. It's like I'm rediscovering my favorite songs all over again. This thing sounds more like home theatre than normal iems.

If you're someone who's tired of obsessing over sound quality and just wants to have some fun listening to music, then the QKZ X HBB Khan is definitely worth checking out. It's not the most analytical IEM out there, but that's not the point. It's about enjoying the music in a way that goes beyond just the technical specs.

I got emotional trying some of my old playlists, it reminded me of my computer speakers I used to blast full volume and shake my room with some Pitbull, Skrillex , Avicci or David Guetta, those 2013 days : )

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!

Bang for your buck! if you love bass, just buy it

Bass, Bass and more bass. Works as advertised :) I have been listening to my classic rock collection and i have not been disappointed so far :) In fact the Sub Bass extension is tastefully done and I can hear the bass guitar and drums separately which even 200$ IEMs fail to do so! If you are into EDM, Hip hop, Punjabi, etc then this is a no brainer. better than the blon03, better than your KZs.

Who is this IEM for ? if you love bass and you want to feel the rumble and thump. If you are mostly into EDM, hip hop, punjabi etc . Note that there is a slight bloat in the mid bass but somehow the tuning has been done such that the mids / vocals are not very recessed.

Who its not for ? If you like technicality, you love to hear all instruments accurately, dont buy this. This is a fun sounding iem with lots of bass :)

Sound Signature ? Extra bass for sure with clean mids and lots of sparkle on top. Its not a traditional V shape signature as the mids are not so much recessed.

Just buy it already for fun listening sessions! its a steal at the price point.

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

Good for bass, but with a bit of a caveat

These provide the bass that bass-head audiophiles look for but don't get usually, being said that though the
COMFORT isn't that good on these as these don't get inserted deep into ears due to bigger aperture which only seems to fit in my ears with the smallest earbuds provided in box, people with bigger ear canal sizes may benefit more from these.
That said , the quality of sound and it's tuning is done tastefully.
BASS is powerful and shows presence

MIDS - are a bit recessed and the vocals are not as focused as on my Blon bl03, but are still enjoyable.

Treble - depends on the size of earbuds used with these and level of insertion you can get by pushing these in your ears.
If you have smaller ear canal size and want good mids and vocal presence, these are not for you, but for bass they are totally recommended.
Also watching movies and shows with these is what enjoyed even more than listening to music.

Use with balanced cables for best performance

QKZ HBB Khan punches well above its weight. While comparing it with the recently purchased (also from HPZ) Raptgo Hook X, which costs almost 5 times the Khan- I was pleasantly surprised at how close the Khan got to the Hook X, albeit with a balanced cable. Definitely a steal at this price, buy the QKZ balanced cable with the money saved

Hey Dipanjan, thanks a lot for the amazing review! We're glad you're happy with the QKZ HBB Khan. Keep the music playing!

Couldn't be much happier..😊

If you love listening to music then there is this website "Headphone Zone" which provides you with a listening experience that you never witnessed in India and that too is what your pocket permits.
I bought this QKZ x HBB - Khan and I must admit that it has a sound signature that I was looking for for so long.
I am a bass head and it just provides the right base, it's not thumping like what is available in the market, and at the same time, it has perfect mids too. I mean it's just perfect And has Crystal clear sound.
I do recommend the audiophile from this website and I can vouch for them that you will not be disappointed in any way. Thank you, so much and I am happy that I came across your platform. Keep doing the good work I appreciate your efforts to build this startup. Best wishes.
Apurv.

QKZ Collaborates With HBB To Present The Khan

 QKZ has partnered with one of the most resourceful audio reviewers in the audiophile world, "Bad Guy, Good Audio Reviews" (also known as Hawaiian Bad Boy), to develop a high-performance in-ear monitor - the Khan. The development of the Khan has incorporated the technical know-how of QKZ and the knowledge and experience of HBB.

Tuned To Perfection And Features Dual Dynamic Drivers

The QKZ X HBB Khan features dual dynamic drivers that are tuned to handle specific frequencies. The 10mm dynamic driver handles the low frequencies that act as a subwoofer, and the 7.8mm driver handles the mid and high frequencies. With an emphasis on the sub-bass region for that extra thump and rumble, the Khan can create a balanced sound over the whole frequency range thanks to this crossover technique.

Breathtaking Sonic Performance

The QKZ X HBB Khan is unique; when it comes to its sonic delivery. The bass on the Khan is well-pronounced and does not bleed into the mids, as it has a dedicated driver for the low frequency. It is just the right mix that adds the required thump and rumble. The mids are also well Balanced with equal emphasis on the treble, which is very open and holographic in its approach.

Ergonomically Designed With 3d Printed Shells

The materials and technology used for Khan are of high quality and emanate confidence. The industry-standard DLP-3D printing of the fourth generation is modified to create acoustic conduits with more accuracy so that you may enjoy the purest natural sound. The Khan effectively filters out extraneous noises to purify the audio for you, together with the specifically engineered metal grid and dual vents for pressure release.

The Khan's 6.8g weight and ergonomic design make it easy to wear, which is the second requirement for being mobile. Additionally, it has an eye-catching high-tech design with a resin-coated case carved to resemble dragon scales.

RAGHAV SOMANI

Founder, Headphone Zone


For forty dollars you get a punchy, bass-centric IEM, with plenty of other qualities that make it stand out for the price. Wide soundstage, Comfortable fit, Energetic bass, Great design.
I don’t have any problem recommending Khan if you’re looking for some fun and to experience having a “dedicated” woofer handling the sub-bass which does produce a very very fun rumble when the track calls for it.
