Balanced Sound Signature

Headphones with a Balanced sound signature presents a precise sound and an enriching listening experience, where sounds are naturally presented without extreme emphasis on any region. With a pair of headphones with this sound signature, you can hear audio with clarity and detail. The sound is vivid and revealing, a perfect mixture of instruments and vocals, lows, mids, and highs. This sound signature works for most music listeners who like switching between various music genres like Classical, Jazz, Blues, Rock, Folk and Pop.

Ideal For Casual Music Listening

These headphones are your go-to when you want to sit back and relax. If you’re someone who is looking to listen to music without worrying too much about the technicalities, then these are the perfect fit for you. You can expect these headphones to conveniently work and pair with most devices like Smartphones and Laptops without needing an Amp or DAC. These offer the ultimate convenience, but we believe that if you care about an immersive listening experience and audio quality, these are not for you!

Ideal for Commuting

If you’re someone who enjoys listening to music while commuting, then you know the value of a good pair of headphones or earphones. These headphones allow you to listen to your favourite track, make that important call on the go or even block out the world for a focused podcast listening experience. You can expect these headphones to offer a seamless connectivity experience via a wired connection or a wireless one. They are lightweight in design and provide isolation or noise cancellation as an added functionality.

Ideal for Taking Calls

These headphones are designed to present how audio tech, typically associated with listening to music, can be used for two-way communications. If you’re someone who is working from home and need to do a conference call or have a video call with your mum, you'll benefit from a headphone with a mic. You can expect these headphones to offer brilliant microphone quality and clear audio without having to connect additional peripherals. Just plug them in, and express yourself.

Works with Android & iOS

One thing all of our phones have in common is that they have replaced the portable media player. These headphones and devices are perfect to pair with your Android and iOS devices and offer functionality previously unknown. If you’re someone who usually switches between a variety of devices with different OS, then these are suited for you. You can expect these headphones and devices to connect seamlessly without any hassle and even offer OS-specific functionality depending on the device. Headphones and devices designed to work with Android and iOS come in wired and wireless formats. Quite often you will also find Hi-Fi equipment offering direct connectivity to devices with Android and iOS to simplify the connectivity process.

Replaceable Cables

A pair of headphones with a replaceable cable has many benefits, and one of them is if the connecting cable has a problem, it doesn’t mean that you have to buy a new one. If the connecting cable gets pulled or damaged, you can replace it and keep using your good-old headphones or IEMs. This way, your headphones will be protected and will last longer. With the advancements in cable manufacturing, you now get a variety of replacement cables with various termination options, lengths and quality.

Tangle-Free Cables

Every time you reach for the headphone cables to connect them to your headphones, and no matter how neatly you wrapped them up, they end up in a giant Gordian knot of frustration. Tangled cables are the bane of modern existence, and everyone owning a wired pair of headphones or IEM can attest to this. With advances in cable making techniques and radical approaches to manufacturing, there are now several solutions to this universal problem. You get Flat cables, Mesh Design cables, cables coated with exterior covers and cables designed with a zipper style design to avoid Tangle and attempt to solve the issue.

Super Lightweight Design

When you want to be constantly hooked to your music, you’d need a pair of lightweight headphones – one that you can wear and forget about instead of one that keeps pressing you down with its weight. And contrary to popular belief, the sound quality of your headphones doesn’t change with weight. Recent designs have combined durable, yet light materials to construct lightweight headphones that are sleeker, trendier and more comfortable than ever before. Of course, lightweight headphones are also easy to take along wherever you go – they don’t add weight to your bag or occupy too much space.

The DQ6 comes with 3 Dynamic Drivers, and it took me a while to understand why! Hybrid driver configuration and especially BA drivers can sound metallic and harsh - but the DQ6 has none of these problems. The DQ6 is fun, impactful and sounds full-bodied.

NEW ARRAY SETUP PAIRED WITH 3 DYNAMIC DRIVERS FOR UNRIVALLED PERFORMANCE

The KZ DQ6 has all it needs to be at the top of its game, including a brand new array type and three dynamic drivers. A 10mm dual magnetic driver and two 6mm dynamic drivers produce full-range sound in these dynamic earphones. The KZ DQ6 is HiFi because of its robust analytical power, improved sensitivity, and boosted lows.

PRISTINE SOUND AND AN EXTENSIVE SOUNDSTAGE DELIVER THE ULTIMATE LISTENING EXPERIENCE

A dynamic high-frequency unit is included in the all-new array type. This unit improves the sound field range, as well as the soundstage, by optimising the frequency issues of the single dynamic driver. The KZ DQ6 has physical frequency division technology with an electronic crossover as an addition to the superior driver setup. The vocals are clear, and the musical instruments are lush.

A downgrade from zsn pro x

These iems are hard to drive. (due to 3 driver setup)
Straight out of the box:
- bass is below avg
- mids & highs are avg
- imaging is good
- vocals are good
- soundstage is avg
One may use EQ to ramp-up the bass but overall the sound is dark and dull.
(nothing different from 10$ iems)
Skip this one and consider zsn pro x, zs10 pro or blon bl03 based on your budget.
In general, if you want great clarity, soundstage, separation and bass - consider hybrid drivers. (BA + DD)
BAs provide exceptional mids and highs while DDs handle the lows really well.
Blons are an exception because their 32ohm DD is technically far different from other DDs.

A versatile pair of IEMs!

Ordered these after a lot of deliberation and consideration. I'm not a bass head, with my daily listening including a lot of Snarky Puppy, Coldplay, with occasional hits of Pop and EDM. I have a trusty pair of Audio Technica M50x headphones with a UAD Solo interface for home listening, but I often prefer earphones for travelling and bedtime listening.

The sound, then!
Out of the box, the first thing that instantly hit me was just how loud these are! Perfect for when you need to drown out the sound of aircraft engines, annoying aunties and crying babies.
But more importantly, there is a LOT of headroom for you to EQ the sound and get it where you like it to be. I personally did not like the mildly peaky highs, but a quick trip to the EQ and I have these singing just how I like! The bass is punchy, the mids are smooth and the highs nice and airy, without being too screechy. There's also enough clarity of sound where you're discovering previously unheard nuances in some songs!

If you've read reviews online, then yes, the eartips stems are, infact, narrower than usual, but fortunately for me, one of the stock eartips provided work just fine!

Might purchase a pair of spinfits if I feel like splurging, but definitely not a necessity. Might also purchase a bluetooth cable that KZ sells, I can imagine that being useful.

Bottom line, you should give these a shot!

Hey Shrey, We are so happy to hear that you are loving these IEMs.Thanks for sharing your detailed feedback with us. The Spinfit ear tips will definitely help you in enhancing your listening experience.

There is a problem.

Recently some Youtubers opened up the DQ6 and found that only the sound from 10mm DD reaches the ear of the listener. And KZ themselves gave some BS response to this aquisition. I have a DQ6(aka DQ2:/) myself, and feels cheated by their mislead marketing. The content is out there if anyone want to confirm this. I gave a positive review before, and I am changing it now since it doesn't seem right supporting a company without any morality.

Hey Nevin, we understand where you are coming from. We are aware of this situation & controversy and we are trying to resolve the issue.

Really fun IEMs and worth the money

I got started with IEMs with the first generation of the MEE Audio M6 Pro's and after that I bought a pair of KZ's (KZ ZST X) and I've been a big fan of the form factor because it offers high quality audio both on the go or even in doors when you want something a bit more breathable for your ears than over-ears. These are by far my favorites that I've used so far, because they fit super well and are extremely stable in the ears, making the sound much better. A better fit means better bass and soundstage.

So I'll go through each aspect of these to help anyone considering these as options make a decision (SPOILERS: It's a definite "Buy!")

The packaging (7/10): These are the first things you see when you receive the headphones and the packaging looks beautiful. It shows what the IEMs look like and it's very minimalistic. You open the packaging to reveal the earbuds inside and, underneath it, its cable and eartips. The only reason it isn't a full 10/10 is that the accompaniment of accessories is minimal, as is usual with KZ earphones. As compared to something like the M6 Pro's which come with a large variety of eartips (including Comply foam tips) as well as a carrying case, this might seem a little lacking. I personally don't mind this, as I already have leftover cases and pouches from previous headphone purchases, but if you've never purchased an IEM before, you might want to consider getting a pouch for this to keep it safe when traveling with these.

Looks (9/10): Now, this is a rather subjective category and maybe a little superficial, but in my opinion the KZ DQ6 is a very attractive looking earphone. The version I got was with the silver faceplate, but they can come in black as well, and the faceplate is metal and looks very attractive. If you wear IEMs in public, you're bound to get looks from others due to the way they fit around your ears, but at least they'll get something nice to look at with these. The faceplate gives this minimal and simplistic feel which most people with modern design sensibilities would enjoy.

Fit and comfort (10/10): Now, keep in mind that everyone's ears are different shapes and sizes, so this category may not be the case for you, but I think the fits of these are universally pretty good. The mould of these is a bit more like a custom IEM than other KZ's and includes wings for added stability in your ears. The eartips these come packaged with are very soft and not at all irritating to my ear canals (I have very sensitive ear canals and am prone to infection, so this is important!). The wire the fits around your ears is just barely noticeable and these IEMs are very lightweight so they end up being very comfortable and fit well for my ears, but your mileage may vary.

The cable (8/10): The quality of the cable here is superb for the price. They're tangle free and, most importantly, they don't easily get disturbed by tapping. I gave it the "tap test" when listening to music - meaning I tapped on the wire several times to see if I'd hear any disturbances in the sound and... nothing. These cables are overall very nice. These earphones use a 2-pin straight connector as well, but they are housed in such a way that they fit together very well and could not easily come off from casual pulling like other IEMs with 2-pin connectors.

The sound (9/10): Now, as a preface for this, I would note that my ears are *extremely* treble sensitive and I am a bass guitar player so I have a general inclination towards the mids bass, and sub-bass frequencies. The songs I tested these with are
> In the Court of the Dragon by Trivium
> Creatures X: To The Grave by Motionless in White
> Props & Mayhem by PTV
> It Never Ends by BMTH
My testing was all hardcore, post-hardcore, and metalcore and there was no burn-in period (I personally do not believe in burn-in as a practice. I've tried it and it will change the sound minimally by mellowing out highs and smoothing out bass response by a barely noticeable amount to discerning ears, but for a beginner audiophile, this will not be noticed).
- These earphones are fitted with three dynamic drivers, so the reproduction of the bass and and middle frequencies is superb.
-The sound signature of KZ earphones is a little bright and these are no exception, but the highs here are tastefully done and did not at all cause issues for my ears even during passages with pinch harmonics and screechy vocals.
- Being earphones with multiple drivers, these have very good detail retrieval and I found myself hearing little quirks in the music I was listening to that I had not noticed before.
- These have a remarkably open soundstage for a pair of IEMs. Yes, they do feel a little boxed in because that is the nature of IEMs, but it's not at all a bother.
- They have a very balanced sound signature with no frequency feeling too overpowering, but the mids are ever so slightly recessed, but it's not to prominently lacking.

Overall, I'd say these are def...

Exquisite

I always wanted the best sound and wanted a bang for buck earphones/IEMS which can provide a good and clear audio quality. Well i have to say the Audio quality will blow you away if you are coming from the earphones of brands like xiaomi, Oppo, OnePlus,Noise,Boat or others then my friend you don't really know what real audio sounds like. The bass is very different and clear not overpowering like other earphones I have used. Transitioning from MI Dual driver and Mi Superbass to Kz IEMs is a whole different experience the time you put these earphones in you will feel the audio you used to hear on other earphones is just too much manipulated by brands.

You also should remember to use good device to play music on these IEMs most laptops above 50K Inr and Phones above 15K are good enough to handle these also if you are like me then install Dolby or DTS via magisk then the quality really starts to jump.
Also a humble request to the Company Please Give better eartips as the one's in the box are crap.

HI Vshrupt,
We thank you for this lovely review & we are glad you are enjoying it! Keep the music playing.
