REW Frequency Response
Sound quality description
In this review, I use the standard eartips size L and drive it with the FiiO M15.
The BLON X HBB Z300 has a neutral sound signature.
Please see here for detailed reviews on sound quality.
Lows / Bass
The low end of the BLON X HBB Z300 is quite deep and linear.
The bass drum is quite weighty and deep enough, with a good amount of rumble and enough impact overall.
The electric bass is also black enough, and not bad in depth and breadth.
While it seems to be sufficient in quantity and almost enough in quality to satisfy bass lovers, the sound balance is a bit too strong for the midrange, which may muddy the midrange a bit.
The midrange of the BLON X HBB Z300 is tuned close to neutral and is very accurate in texture.
The center of the midrange is well positioned and bright, but the upper midrange is subdued, so the overall midrange generally sounds a little less colored and a little more gray. This creates a bit of quietness in the midrange, and it sounds elegant and gentle to the ear. The crunch and edge are less pronounced and the center of the music lacks a sense of structure, but the density is reduced and a sense of spatial spaciousness is achieved, making it comfortable to listen to.
On the downside, the guitar edges are muddy and sound a little darker, creating a chic, mature atmosphere, but moving away from the beautiful colors of the rainbow. Female vocals tend to lose some of their vitality and sound more mature than young.
The midrange has been carefully tuned, but it sounds slightly subdued, which may be a point of difference for different tastes.
Resolution and transparency are above the price level.
Highs / Treble
The high frequency range of the BLON X HBB Z300 is also tuned with a high degree of sound image consistency, with an emphasis on definition and the ability to bring out details in fine detail.
In contrast to the somewhat docile upper midrange to mid-highs, the upper highs are relatively full and bring out detail in a slightly more subdued atmosphere. Cymbal crashes are detailed and reasonably expansive, and violins and woodwinds have a slight sense of extension at the top, making one aware of their height.
The overall direction of decay is tuned for speaker-like forward localization, and while the high frequency extension is a bit lacking, it's not bad, and the height is reasonably perceptible.
Sound quality general comment
- Original Sound Fidelity: A+
- Recommendation: S-
- Personal preference: S-
The BLON × HBB Z300 has a resolution and transparency beyond its price level and a very well balanced sound.
Its rival may be the KZ DQ6s, also under HBB supervision. Both sound mostly similar, but the Z300 wins in every respect, including range, sound image consistency, resolution, and transparency. Perhaps the Z300 is a clearer embodiment of HBB's original acoustic philosophy than the KZ DQ6s.
BLON Z300 vs KZ DQ6s
Sound quality features
- Excellent original sound fidelity
- Elegant and chic
- Natural texture
- Good detail
- Deep bass
- Excellent resolution
- Excellent transparency
- Excellent sound image consistency
- Speaker-like forward localization
- Lacks a sense of structure
- Needs a little more high-frequency extension
The BLON × HBB Z300 has a low-frequency oriented sound that is typical of HBB collaboration models, and the fact that it is a little less flashy in the midrange is also an indication of HBB's preference. Overall progress has been made from the KZ × HBB DQ6s, which are thought to be based on similar tuning, and if you are buying as an HBB collaboration in this price range now, the Z300 is the most recommended option.
