The packaging of KZ AS06
KZ spent a lot of time designing what some people would think is a mobile phone pack because more than one person approached me and ask “What mobile phone is inside this box?” So the company did a good job in packaging the KZ AS06.
On the other hand, someone might feel that the packaging is profligate. Why would an earphone be hidden is such a nicely looking, expensive-kind-of-box? What this packaging bothers on is the premium style it exudes.
KZ has finally found a way to make its signature come alive in a positive way, but mid you, this accessory kit is more like what their packages were in the past. On the other side, probably, the package could have come smaller than it did. Maybe that would cut the price lower, but probably not to half of what it is sold at the present time.
What is loved about the KZ AS06 packaging is its compact style that serves the right purpose because even the package is very tight and it is hard for someone to complain about it. The company never gave the impression of the box being too big for the content inside of it. And what about the metal plaque? It is superb, although you first wonder what purpose it serves.

Design of Accessories
The shells with metal plate make the product lovely. Check the two plates and you will see it easily tells you which plate goes into what ear. They already have ‘L’ and ‘R’ inscribed on them and this very nice and opposed to the former way of wearing earphones anyhow it comes and goes.
Also, you can find the channel differentiation and the following “6 Balanced Armature” in a very clean lettering. Look also at the rear half of the shell and you can see that it is made in black plastic. There is as well a pinhole that suggests this will allow the earphones to work without stress, seeing that the holes can prevent pressure buildup.
Out on top is found a two-pin port that are intended to lead users to wear the cables properly at all times. This can also reduce the probability of damage due to bending. Apart from that, you will find long nozzles and the wire or fiber mesh is quite good too. The copper-braided cable is quite flexible and even in harsh weather, it is able to stand its own.
How to Set Up the KZ AS06
Setting up your KZ AS06 earphone is easy and breezy! Start by removing the old earbuds (If you want) and push the new earbuds into place on the plate. Take note that you have to push it in entirely. Don’t worry if you find that the earbud is slight hard to insert.
Next, correctly wear the earphones by pushing each into the right ear. Take note again that the right ear is inscribed on each plate. You may need to twist until the earphone enters the ears fully. However, note that it is easy for it to fit into your ear. Wrap the earphone copper braids around the top-back of your ear, then adjust the memory to fit the ear shape. Now, you can plug the earphone into the 3.5mm stereo jack on the player. At this stage, the manufacturer recommends you greatly reduce the volume of the sound player before you insert the earpiece.
