Does anyone know how these compare to the kz ates?
I have the KZ ATR and red Monk+. They are completely different, but that's a given since you're comparing earbuds vs. IEMs.
I would say Monks sounds cleaner (esp highs) but KZ ATE has better isolation and bass because they are IEM's and fit tight while Monks are earbuds and personally I hate its loose fit. That's why I ordered bonus pack with different foam and wing thingies hoping they will solve the problem. Both are worth the price and sound very good :)
I have monks and kz zs3, the kz i have suck due to being uncomfortable and with an extension cable, un listenable from my source due to the mic screwing everything up, need a new cable.
However the monks... let me see... the bass sucks, but you know that its there, the higher frequency noices from mid on are just fine.
Lets put it this way, for 5$ you are not doing better then these.
on a side note the kz zs3 do sound good for the price, and will likely outperform anything below 100$ but I have issues with the tips it came with and the cable.
