(Chi-fi IEM Review) KZ × HBB DQ6S: Warm neutral sound like Mele. The Mele has a better sound balance, but if you like a cleaner sound, this one is for you.

REW Frequency Response

KZ × HBB DQ6S

* This measurement is based on the HATS measurement, and the resonance peak is set at around 9 kHz.

 

Sound quality description

In this review, I use the standard eartips size L and drive it with the FiiO M15.

 

The sound signature of the KZ DQ6S is a warm neutral sound with a full midrange, and since Tripowin x HBB Mele had a similar warm neutral sound, I guess this is the sound that HBB likes.

Sound quality general comment
  • Original Sound Fidelity: A-
  • Recommendation: B+
  • Personal preference: B

 

The KZ DQ6S sounds like a warm neutral sound similar to the Mele, but reconfigured with more emphasis on the high frequencies.

 

There is an improvement in dynamism, but it is still generally a bit lacking, and it depends on what you think of the considerable deterioration in midrange expressiveness. In general, audiophiles tend to be more concerned with the midrange, so the Mele is more audiophile-friendly, while the DQ6S is more fun than the Mele, with deeper and more refined lows and improved highs.

General comment

The KZ x HBB DQ6S has a low-frequency sound that is typical of the HBB collaboration model, and when it comes to low-frequency quality, it is superior to the Mele, another collaboration model. However, the breathtakingly accurate midrange textures of the Mele have receded here, sounding a bit thin. The dynamism has been improved, so if you don't like the gentle sound of the Mele, the DQ6S will appeal to you more.
