Till a few years ago, wired headphones and earphones were popular with buyers looking for budget audio products; Bluetooth was still too expensive for many people. Things have since changed, and it's now possible to buy true wireless earphones for less than Rs. 1,000. Although there are still plenty of takers for basic wired earphones that sell for around Rs. 300, most mainstream buyers seem to prefer wireless options. Now, other than the extreme budget end of the market, wired audio is becoming the domain of the audiophile, particularly with the announcement of Apple Music's upcoming Lossless Audio tier.
The KZ ZSN Pro X wired earphones are priced at Rs. 1,899, and promise audiophile-friendly sound in a segment which sees renewed interest thanks to Apple's announcement of lossless audio. With a dual-driver setup and traditional 3.5mm connectivity, the KZ ZSN Pro X is best used with a good DAC, but works just as well with any device with 3.5mm connectivity.
This impressive pair of wired earphones looks good, is built well, and sounds excellent for the price, offering better sound quality than even the best true wireless earphones. There's really nothing to complain about here; this is the pair of earphones to get at under Rs. 2,000 if you're looking for the best sound quality possible.
