Good sounding earphones at a good price. Much, much better quality sound than the earphones you get in PC World etc for £10-£15 (most of which is PC World's profit margin).

I got the zs6 they have 4 drivers per side for around 25 pounds. Again with detachable cable and Bluetooth options for around 6 quid that works on most of their earphones. After using memory foam and damping the high/mid end with regular foam they are easily one of the best audio experiences I have had in an awful long time. Sound is like a monitor, quite flat but still oodles of very wide range bass. So bass heads will be happy. However I found the Bluetooth option which may work with this earpiece is probably Bluetooth 2 or 3, certainly not the v4 with aptx as per descriptions. As it doesn't have the bandwidth nor latency of v4 or atpx.

But to have the option for 6 quid is fantastic, you can also get upgraded cables without microphone which also has good reviews.

Basically a lot of people really love this brand, I gave it a whizz and I'm certainly impressed, although I had change the tips and muffle it with foam. Give them a go or even get the zs6!

They have a good range. What I like about this brand is that they offer models that have different sound signatures depending on preference. So for example, the ZST emphasise the highs which some people may like, whilst others may find find tiring. Then you've got the more more ATE model, the warmer sound ZS3 and so on and so on.

The Bluetooth wire is an interesting option. May suit some but you're right, it's an earlier standard and all the reviews I've seen report 1 sec lag when watching YouTube etc (though it's fine for music), so I decided not to bother with it. For those who are interested though, you can get it here: aliexpress.com/ite…tml

The Bluetooth lag is nearly 2 seconds sometimes I wonder I'm listening to the same thing I'm watching at all!.
The sound from these is really good. But the "round the ear" part of the cable really isn't flexible enough and I find they come loose quite quickly when out walking.

I always have trouble with IEM types and especially staying on as well. I never have had a design that went around ear and would normally avoid them. I didn't know this was the case with the ks6 and found out when they arrived. I use memory foam tips and wrap them around the ear and they don't budge ! Surprised me!.

Maybe try memory foam tips. I use inairs brand from Amazon.

If you are getting inairs then I found the size 2 to work on absolutely everything I have including the ks6

I have a little struggle putting the foam tips on but that also helps them not coming out, I had the slightly larger diameter than the inair2, kz branded ones and used it on my ks6 and they stayed on my ear, nearly had to go a&e!.
