KZ ZST In-ear headphones

Approximate Reading Time: 1 minute

(“TIL”) Things I Like, are a random collection of products, tv shows, movies, or books I’ve found helpful.

This TIL is an inexpensive set of in-ear buds I found out about from Scott Devine’s “Scott’s Bass Lessons” YouTube Channel.

The in-ear buds are manufactured in China by a company called KZ. The model I bought is called the ZST and they are available via Amazon for the meager sum of $19.95 USD.

The Pros:

  • Very comfortable (including various sized tips) and lightweight.
  • The cable retains its shape to aid in holding the bud securing in the ear.
  • Good frequency response.
  • Low Cost.

The Cons:

  • I bought (5) of them as gifts and every recipient initially had difficulty attaching the cable to the buds. Pressing the connector on the cable into the receptacle on the buds will leave you convinced you are going to accidently bend the pins.  But everyone succeeded without a problem eventually.  Once you get the cable connected to the buds, all is fine.

Whether you are looking for a great set of buds to listen to music on your phone, or you are looking for a few inexpensive buds to have available at your church in case one of the musicians on your worship team forgets theirs, the KZ ZST’s are priced right and sound great.
