The KZ ZSN Pro Earbuds with a microphone are a budget-friendly option providing good overall sound quality, comfort, and very good build quality. They have a closed, stemless form factor with a wired connection and a detachable cable measuring around 1.2 meters. They're suitable for gaming and TV with a very good score in those areas, although they're not optimal for calls or meetings. The in-line microphone and cable ear hooks help with durability and secure fit. However, they lack active noise cancelling, wireless capabilities, sweat and dustproof certification, and app-related features for equalization or controls customization. They're also not rated highly for use during exercise and may not provide top-tier noise isolation. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Gaming:
4.4
This score evaluates the product when used to play videogames. It takes into account wireless latency - the perceived delay between the action on screen and the sounds playing in your ears. The score also considers soundstage quality, whether they have a virtual surround feature, and overall comfort. Finally, the gaming score takes into account microphone quality for in-game voice chat. It’s important to note that the device paired with the earbuds heavily influences their performance in regards to latency or delay.
Music:
4.3
The KZ ZSN Pro (with Mic) has a closed enclosure which enhances its overall sound quality, making it good for listening to music as it can provide better bass and noise isolation. Additionally, its earbuds design ensures a more intimate soundstage and imaging, although it may not be on par with over-ear headphones, it still delivers a satisfying listening experience for earbuds.
TV & Video:
4.2
The KZ ZSN Pro earbuds are well-suited to watching TV and videos as they are wired, which eliminates latency issues that can disrupt audio sync. Additionally, their overall sound quality is good, which means you'll have a clear and enjoyable audio experience when watching content.
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.
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."
