For those interested in the budget end of the market, something that I like to focus on, there is a new launch from the well known players of the economic IEM market, KZ.

A couple of days ago, KZ launched the new ZAS, a 8 driver per side hybrid from the brand who popularized hybrids in the budget IEM market.

With the ZAS, they have opted for a single dynamic driver paired with 7 balanced armature drivers, in a shell that contains a new acoustic cavity structure according to KZ.
