My KZ ZST cord ripped off while I was getting up from chair. :-!

Want something good or better than this if possible in the 1.5k range. Need warm sounding earphones.

Alibaba is full of 3/4 driver balanced units.
How do those sound? I think the ZST was 2 driver unit. Bass and treble from different speakers.

You can replace the cable of the ZST for a low price.

If you just need a new headphone, I would recommend the CCA C10 (its a KZ company) - 5 drivers.

I doubt anyone can really make a good suggestion. What you like might be very diff from what someone else likes.
And, we all hear stuff differently, and have diff shaped ears.

My 2c : If you liked the ZST you might like the ZSN (it's supp to be the KZ upgrade to the ZST). There's also a ZSN Pro now.

I have the ZSA and ZSR. Love the ZSR, ZSA not so much.

I was thinking of replacing with new cable but saw cost price is almost same as buying new earphones. I was thinking of placing order for the zs10 along with extra cables during that china sale. the KZ seller was charging shipping of $2-5 on top. plus the long wait times and the thought of customs or postal employees taking the earphones and i didn't feel like buying them.

Yes. its true that everyone has a unique sound profile that they like. was just wanting names to look around for new devices. I think i got tired of the zst sound signature and was looking for something new.

I am having wide range of headphones and IEM
do check my profile
