The KZ ZSN Pro earbuds are budget-friendly wired options with a closed enclosure design, boasting very good build quality and good overall sound; however, they have poor noise isolation. These earbuds have a good comfort score, making them suitable for extended listening sessions, but they might not be the best for calls and meetings due to poor microphone quality. They are not wireless, so they're suitable for users who don't mind a cord or require a wired connection for low latency during activities like gaming or watching TV. They come with a detachable cable and ear hooks for a secure fit, enhancing their durability and making them a decent choice for exercise as well. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Music:
4.3
The KZ ZSN Pro earbuds are recommended for listening to music thanks to their closed enclosure type which helps in providing a good overall sound quality, allowing for a more isolated and direct listening experience. However, it's worth noting that they have a fair soundstage and imaging score and lack virtual surround capabilities, which may limit the spaciousness and directional sense in the audio.
TV & Video:
4.2
The KZ ZSN Pro earbuds are wired, which eliminates any potential for latency issues that can detract from watching TV and videos. Additionally, they offer good overall sound quality, which enhances the viewing experience by providing clear and detailed audio.
Air Travel:
3.1
This score evaluates the product for use on airplanes and other similar kinds of travel. It takes into account noise reduction and portability, including case shape, case size, and weight. It also incorporates the battery life of the product, long-haul comfort, noise reduction (both active and passive), and sound quality. We generally consider wireless products to be more suitable for air travel.
Gaming:
3.0
The KZ ZSN Pro earbuds are wired, eliminating concerns about latency which is beneficial for gaming, but their soundstage is only fair, which may not provide the most precise directional cues needed for immersive gameplay. Additionally, the microphone quality is rated as poor, which could hinder in-game communication with other players.
Portability:
3.0
The Portability score is based on an overall assessment that includes volume and maximum dimension of the product (and case, if relevant), and its weight. Special features like foldability for headphones are also taken into account.

David Becker | 2019
"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."
