Recently, the company KZ which produces a budget line of earphones is very popular for its large assortment and quality of the product for little money. In this review I would like to tell you about the next new product is KZ ZS7 earphones.
If the ZS6 headphones have made you an extremely low price and good sound, KZ ZS7 will make you enjoy even more. They add more durable material, fuller sound, and less demanding sound.
I wrote the KZ ZS6 headphones last year as a model with a fantastic price/performance ratio.
Hybrid four-way headphones in a $30 price tag were something extraordinary. Due to their clear heights, they have declassified their competition. The earphone with four inverters and a removable cable for a few dollars? Yes, Seriously! And surprisingly, they offer a sound that you would not expect for so little money.
If you hear the hybrid headphones for the first time, know that they combine pressure transducers and dynamic drives. The dynamic ones are familiar with conventional studs, they have a larger diameter, the pressure transducers have a small dimension and here they take care of high tones.
When the company began producing the KZ ZS7 headphones at a double price ($44), I thought the KZ was trying to sell the same two times, and twice as much – just replacing the plastic body with aluminum.
However, the reality is far removed from the first impression. Although it is visually very similar to the headphones, the sound is different. Better (I emphasize here that I compare to the second generation KZ ZS6, ie, which were made at the beginning, the current ones have a slightly different sound).

KZ ZS7: Design and Appearance
In appearance, KZ ZS7 in our test has the same shape as ZS6 or ZS5, but are made of aluminum, not plastic.
It is a matter of endurance and resilience, in the face of the fact that in the winter studies.
The body is 5 mm in diameter, you get three rubber ear pads, the comfort is very good to excellent.
The cable of KZ ZS7 in the analisis can be changed again, for example, it is possible to use exchangeable BT module for $7, or better cables.
As for the casting and there is only one dynamic drive with a diameter of 10mm and are located in the body.
But also there are four balanced armature is located directly in the earphone. The body covers the metal membrane.
The overall design of KZ ZS7 is definitely more robust than the ZS6.
The connectors themselves are the same, the supplied cable is durable, the microphone effect is minimal, although its share of this is certainly the cable management behind the ear, which does not suit anyone.
The microphone driver is one-button, so it can be used on all phones.
Generally, construction and insulation deserve praise, the design is not much to blame, as it is a copy of other, significantly more expensive IEM headphones.
In addition to basic accessories (three pairs of earpads), you will not get anything else. You can choose from one color blue with black.
KZ ZS7: Sound
The KS ZS7 again offers an incredibly detailed sound at their price.
Compared to the ZS6 they have a more balanced and pleasant feature, ie the aligned centers, which are legible here, full, do not stick to the background, the vocals are accurate.
They are certainly louder than the cheaper model, which has a positive impact on channel separation.
The bass is a bit more dynamic, fun, depending on the ear, but it offers not only a very low bass but also the taller is pure and dynamic, which is sometimes missing from the ZS5 or ZS6.
The earphones handle deep, electronic bass, but they do not disable other bands.
As for the heights, here they are clean, very detailed, only in songs with a high content of high tones they can be unpleasant.
Similar to the SZ6, the hybrid headphones show their strength here, in the case of dynamic inverters, so much detail and cleanliness will be searched in vain at this price.
Not so long ago we tested the 2DD+2BA hybrid earphone KZ ZS6 headphones, this time we chose to listen to a cheaper sibling.
What I was most pleased with is the fact that the ZS7 is far less demanding than the ZS6.
The KZ ZS7 shots play louder and evenly, regardless of the connected audio source.
Well, of course, you know what you’ve plugged in and what you play, and you’ll be able to recognize the cheap PC soundtrack, a decent smartphone output, and a high-quality audio output from the Hi-Res player.
In addition to the ZS6, the balance of sound is reduced. For me, she praised me unambiguously here.
As for music genres, it’s a universal headset for any genre, I’ll get better performance of the classic, violin or piano at the KZ ZS7 against my cheaper counterpart ZS6. Tools have the right volume and character, with ZS6 being more subtle and missing the bottom.
KZ ZS7: Conclusions and Reviews
With a good price, the KZ ZS7 earphones are an excellent choice as for our review, I personally believe that this is a bigger bet than the cheaper model KZ ZS6.
Here you have a metal body, a fuller sound with a better midrange and a much lesser volume of sound.
If you do not have any experience with the hybrid earphones, the KZ ZS7 definitely does not have to worry, you get a detailed, clean, nice and full sound that will not bother you with too much analytics.
The more demanding, on the contrary, will delight in a wealth of details and the ability to use better sound sources. Although they are cheap earphones, they offer premium sound and design, so the KS ZS7 has our clear recommendations.
KS ZS7: Price and Where to buy cheaper?
In the last category, I would like to talk about the price, and how to get it at a good price. Nowadays, it is becoming more and more popular to place orders directly through Chinese stores. Recently, I have been always ordering for myself the only way, and I also advise you.
As for the price? Now you can buy KS ZS7 earphones at a good and competitive price for just $44 without a microphone, and $45 with a microphone.
For a large amount of money, you will receive good quality earphones that can be compared to more expensive ones with a price tag of $100.
