- KZ DQ6S
The build quality of the exterior is above the standard for the price range. The build quality of the recent KZs has improved to a much higher level than before.
The housing fits relatively well and is comfortable to wear.

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.
Please see here for detailed reviews on sound quality.
Sound quality general comment
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.
Sound quality features
- Relatively high original sound fidelity
- Clean midrange
- Deep low frequencies
- Lacks a sense of construction
- Lacks a sense of freshness.
- Lacks a sense of definition
- Lack of high frequency extension
- Lack of micro detail
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.
