Chinese brand KZ now comes with AS lineup that comes with the western-ish tonality instead of classic “loud” KZ signature. KZ released so many succesful iems in late years: KZ ZS10 Pro, KZ ZSN Pro and AS10. Now It’s time to review KZ AS16.
KZ AS16: UnboxingBox is simple KZ box, it’s plain black. There’s only stealth KZ logo on it, on the left there are some helpful informations — Nothing more! After opening up the box there’s a metal plate with some Chinese writings with KZ logo on it. Underneath the box there are some paperworks, cable and 3 size of eartips. Cable is the same utterly awful KZ’s sh*t colored cable. Earphone like this should’nt have this kind of cable. There are also awful microphonics on the cable. Connectors are 2 pin .78
