I bought the KZ ZSN Pro X IEMs from AlieExpress pretty much as soon as it was released. Got if for $17 after a $3 discount during initial sale days. I got it to Chennai after a month. Honestly wasn't expecting it to reach me owing to the pandemic. But it was shipped from Malaysia and it got to me quickly and safely.

Initial impressions is definitely on par with my expectations. Everything is nice. But I would say I'm neither super blown away nor am I disappointed. I had super high expectations because people kept saying that you'll hear sounds that you wouldn't previously have heard, so I was expecting another dimension added to the audio quality but maybe that's a bit too much lol.

A friendly tip to anyone using IEMs with detachable earphones for the first time - Initially I had attached the earphones to the cable upside down and that's why the sound wasn't AS impressive as I was expecting. After inserting them properly, I got a proper seal and now I can hear the nuanced sounds and it sounds a lot better and feels a LOT more comfy.

One of the biggest pros of this is that it comes with the detachable cable. I mean look back and see all the earphones that have failed on you, it was almost always because the cable snapped or stopped working. With this, you no longer need to worry about that. You can basically replace the cable if it goes bad. And the quality is better than anything else I've tried, both build quality and audio quality.

I would highly recommend this as a first IEM. I might upgrade to one of those crazy 16 Driver setup in the future!

Huge drawback with these removable earphone cables. The silicone covering for the cable melts off after a few years and the replacement cables without mic cost a lot. Close to 800 rupees. It's not worth it when we can buy a new pair of earphones in that price range with a mic.

lol what? I haven't owned these for years so I can't confirm your statement about the silicone covering melting off. I can't even imagine how that would happen. Do you expose it to a fire? How does it "melt" off? But let's say that it actually does wear out in a few years. That's a helluva LOT better than my entire earphones becoming useless every few months, which is unfortunately what happens with these cheaper earphones (I mean Rs. 500 - Rs. 800 ones). Actually even expensive ones. I've never had a pair of earphones last more than 8 months. Something or the other stops working. Btw, these earphones in total cost me less than 1500. And the cable alone costs like Rs. 350 if you want to have it replaced. Spending Rs. 350 every few years vs spending Rs. 800 on new earphones every few months? I don't know about you, but my choice is clear.

That was for the price alone. Don't get me started about the quality. I am used to several different in-ear earphones available in the market and none of the quality even comes close to what I get out of these IEMs. This just blows everything out of the water in terms of quality, range (0 - 40000hz), fit, durability and every other factor. And plus these cables are high quality cables that come with copper core or silver or even gold core, available for us to choose. And those Rs. 350 cables are FAR superior to these flimsy tangly cables that you get with other earphones. I have no idea what you're talking about with your critique!!
