If you often take calls or play online games, the KZ ZSN Pro with a microphone would give you the advantage of hands-free communication, while the Koss KSC75 lacks this feature. On the other hand, if you prioritize comfort and a more open sound, the Koss KSC75's clip-on design provides a unique fit and usually a more spacious soundstage compared to in-ear options like the KZ ZSN Pro. The latter may offer better noise isolation due to its in-ear design, which can be preferable in noisy environments. Consider where and how you'll be using the earbuds most often when making your choice. Give Feedback

InEar Fidelity

Crinacle | June 2022
"Let’s not insult the KSC75 by saying that it’s simply good for the price… because it’s far more than that. It basically has a monopoly at its asking price, and could still give modern budget headphones a run for their money 15 years after its release. The KSC75 is the world’s best not-headphone."

"Undoubtedly the focus and the star of the show, the ZSN Pro’s bass is big, bold and bangin’. The amount of gusto in the low end should satisfy anyone who likes a large lick of bass and even certified bassheads will probably get a kick out of this."
