Hi, i have been looking for headphones/earphones for months now and cant decide what to go for.
-Price Range is £50
-Mostly used for bass heavy music like house etc
-also would like something to use at the gym and when active (had issues with earbuds before where they just drop out constantly)
-Previous earphones where the Senheiser cx 300's

Here are a few products i have been looking at

I'd say it's defiantly an upgrade from your old CX300ii's. They're a little bright, but that's just what I really enjoy, but overall they have a good clean sound. Either of them would be a great upgrade.
As for isolation. The zs5's are totally closed and will seal the absolute best. The zs6's on the other hand is semi-open and won't give you that snug seal. They're not open enough for people to hear your stuff even at high volumes, but you'll still be able to hear a little going on around you.

Heyo Shaun98

Personally I've had a great experience with the KZ zs5/6's. Great IEM's at a phenomenal price. The zs5's are the first rendition and that shows in the design fx. I find them uncomfortable after like 45 minutes of listening, but this seems to just be a problem with my ears lol. The zs6's fixed this for me and they even improved the sound of it.
I like a brighter sound than most people and therefore find these IEM's very good for me. The bass should be plenty in both of them, even though the zs6's are semi-open they still retain a lot of low-end.

Cheers
