It continued the technology of the wired E3000 and, according to the company, is designed to “create sound that’s enjoyable to listen to”.

In addition, the ZE3000 got the newly developed f-Core for Wireless driver – according to the company, it provides ultra-low distortion. Interestingly, its diaphragm, unlike the vast majority of analogs, is made by the type of large compression speakers: a rigid diaphragm in a silicone outer suspension. As a result, according to the manufacturer, the 6-mm speaker is equivalent in bass to a 10-mm analogue.
