KZ ZES Unboxing and First Impressions

KZ ZES Unboxing and First Impressions

Hi everyone, Today, we will be seeing the new KZ ZES IEM. This is KZ’s new model that comes before the newly announced KZ EDA. This model features a new 12mm dynamic driver along a 6.8mm electrostatic driver. It is similar to the KZ ZEX in terms of its speaker configuration, except that this one upgrades the dynamic driver to a 12mm version rather than the ZEX 10mm driver. For this IEM, we get to see a sort of new…

KZ x HBB DQ6S Review

KZ x HBB DQ6S Review

Hi everyone, After a week of listening to the new KZ DQ6S IEM, I’m ready to share my thoughts on it. The KZ DQ6S is an IEM consisting of 3 dynamic drivers: one 10mm “Xun” dynamic driver and two 6mm drivers. This is the same configuration of the original KZ DQ6, but this is tuned differently. It is a collaboration between KZ and HBB. As usual, the IEM box and content is no different from other KZ IEMs and we…

Hi everyone, This week, KZ launched their new KZ ZES IEM. This model features a 12mm dynamic driver and an “electrostatic” driver, similar to the previous KZ ZEX model. It seems that the main difference between the KZ ZES and the previous KZ ZEX is that this new model uses a 12mm dynamic driver whereas the previous KZ models seem to use a 10mm dynamic driver. The electrostatic is still a 6.8mm unit. It will be interesting to hear this…

MP3 GUI v1.0 is released!

MP3 GUI v1.0 is released!

Hi everyone, Today, I’m publishing a new MP3 Graphical User Interface software to encode audio files to MP3. This software uses ffmpeg’s libmp3lame or libshine encoding libraries in order to produce MP3 files. These provides you an option to choose between quality or speed encoding. For quality MP3 files, there’s libmp3lame, while for speed (and a lower quality) there is libshine. It also provides the option to encode files using a variable bitrate when using libmp3lame, and allows choosing a…

The Groove Onn Walmart Portable CD Player

The Groove Onn Walmart Portable CD Player

Hi everyone, Today, we will be seeing another portable CD player. Yes, it is 2022 and it’s the age of streaming, yet we can find CD players and can buy music CDs. What was interesting to see is a store selling these. I expected to see them on online sites like Amazon but not at a store at this time and age. So, I found this portable CD player at a relatively cheap price, and I decided to get it….

I have enjoyed the original KZ DQ6 sound, so I…
