The KZ ZSN Pro is a wired earbud with a detachable cable, offering better sound quality for music and slightly better performance for TV and video. These are well-suited for critical listening due to their better overall sound quality but are less convenient for exercise and outdoor activities due to the wired design. On the other hand, the Skullcandy Dime 2 is a wireless earbud with a higher comfort score and built-in microphone quality, making it more suitable for calls and meetings. These earbuds are also more portable, score higher for use during exercise, air travel, and come with features such as sweat resistance, which the KZ ZSN Pro lacks. The Skullcandy Dime 2 has a shorter battery life but offers a more versatile and convenient experience for on-the-go users. Give Feedback

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."

Sound Guys

Jasper Lastoria | March 2022
"With the low price, it’s a low-risk investment. The Dime 2 is a decent set of backup buds for those times when you don’t want to risk your more upscale buds. If it weren’t for the lackluster battery life, I’d say everyone should have a pair as a spare for music."
