$35 dollar In-ear Review!

Hello Drum and Snare Geek family, back again with another review, yet this time it is not a drum…….


Yes, yes I know! Although, as a giging musician I believe this is in the top 5 things that you need on a gig and that is a solid, affordable set of back up or main in-ears!

That’s right, this time around I got to test out and review the…..

KZ ZS5 Dynamic Hybrid Quad Driver In-ear Headphones!

Just under a week ago my Shure SE215-CL finally gave out after 3 amazing years of use.

Now your probably wondering “Well Nate, why don’t you just buy another pair of the 215.”

The fact is I want to save up for in-ear molds and just didn’t want to spend the money on a brand new pair. That brings me to this brand being brought to my attention right after the passing of my 215s.

The people that absolutely love these headphones have one drivers you can get for about $20 bucks! So….since I had one drivers before I decided to splurge and pay the extra $15 to get quad driver in ears!

This also was do to the fact that I, as a drummer, have always had a hard time hearing my kick when coming from a monitor device. Additionally, even when I push the bass I loose it while using single drivers.

Getting these headphones really fixed that and help everything sit in its own frequency space. I could hear things very clear and did not have to turn up the volume that much to get the isolation I desired.

The cord that comes with the ears are decently thick to make for a durable combination while your out working!

The ear buds are also detachable so if you end up buying new buds or want to change out the chord you can accomplish that with ease.

The only complaint I have with them is that for my ears they are a little bulky so it took some time for me to adjust them to where there comfortable to me. Additionally, I had to get used to the rubbery buds compared to the moldable ones you get with the 215s. Yet with a little of time, which was in about a day, I adjusted to these changes with great experiences to follow.

In conclusion, these are fantastic headphones for the price and will be a solid pair to get as a back up or main pair when you don’t quite have the money for the “industry standard” Shure 215s.

Don’t just take my word for it, go try them out or any of the headphones they offer on Amazon , GearBest and Newegg. It will definitely be worth your money and time!


Thanks for checking out this review and if you like it please share this blog with others that you think might need a solid, inexpensive pair of in ears! See you guys!! ✌🏻✌🏻
