WHAT'S IN THE BOX
Some years ago a friend of mine and fellow band member ordered 2 other KZ’s for use with our IEM system. They sounded a bit to bright in my opinion, particularly on one side but I thought it was our mix. Unfortunately COVID came along so we didn’t play much. Some months ago I found out that the bass driver of one of the in ears didnt work which turned out to be the reason. I ordered KZ AS16 Pro this time. But these sounded horrible on most occasion. Turns out to be a cable or jack problem (the cable of my old KZ’s sounded OK). Mailed Linsoul about it, now i have to make a video demonstrating the problem. I will but second time i am disappointed. Used to brag about price/quality yo othe musicians but will not again.
We are very sorry for the bad experience and inconvenience.
If there is any problem, please remember to contact us immediately. If the manufacturer can see the problem through the video, we will make targeted reissue/repair. In view of your situation, we have made a replacement and we hope this time will not let you down!
If there are any other questions, please feel free to let us know.
Have a nice day!
Musically these are very well done: the detail retrieval, while not exceptional, is absolutely fine for the price tag. Soundstage is also above average the overall sound is very nicely balanced - the piercing treble I've experienced with other KZ units is non-existent. The clarity in the mids is the highlight for me and the forward presence in the vocals is not as bothersome as other reviews elsewhere have idenitifed. All in all this is a very competent set that KZ needed to release to catch some redemption and prove they can do more than a wash, rise, repeat of V shaped units. Some have complained about fit, and while the shells are quite heavy, I was not bothered by how they sat on my ear. I am inclined to agree with other reviewers asserting this is a major addition to the sub $100 bracket.
But here's a MAJOR drawback that totally nullifies the above and why I may never pick these up again. There is no port on the AS16Pro. The build up in pressure gave me ear pain and an ensuing nagging headache after maybe 30 mins of use. What a tremendous disappointment and painful (literally) oversight by KZ. Such a shame. I wouldn't recommend these on that basis.
KZ had 4 years to revamp any part of the IEM to further improve the sound signature and good to see they make it ultra-affordable for what has been offered.
