Zowie S2 vs Zowie FK1

The actual comparison should be the FK1 vs S1 or FK2 vs S2 as those are the equivalent sized.

Both shapes are great ambidextrous shapes that super comfortable.

The S2 cable drags less than the FK series due to a higher placed connector, the S2 buttons are better, lighter and more responsive.

The S2 has a flawless sensor while the Avago found in the FK can be prone to spinning out, this is an overblown concern but there's no reason to go for a flawed sensor when a flawless alternative is available.

I'd generally recommend the S series over the FK series at this point unless you specifically prefer the narrower and lower profile FK shape.
