Connection quality

I tested it by connecting it to a Cayin N6II/E02 with AAC.

 

I don't know, I haven't been in crowded places, but it is stable in my home. Distance tolerance is excellent, and the connection is seamless and intact even at a distance of about 5 meters. The sound was uninterrupted and music could be heard consistently, even across obstructions.

 

There may be a small amount of white noise, but most people probably won't notice it.

Sound quality description

The QCY T18 offers a balanced sound signature with an emphasis on low frequencies, similar to the Herman Target 2017.

 

The following review was tested on a FiiO M15 with an AAC connection.

Sound quality general comment
  • Original sound fidelity: A+
  • Recommendation: B+
  • Personal preference: C

 

If you want to listen to well-balanced sound in a low-resolution, fuzzy way, the QCY T18 is a good choice. However, it will sound quite lacking for audiophiles who listen to music voraciously. In this respect, the QCY T17 is far superior in terms of sound quality.

Sound quality features
Pros
  • Natural texture
  • Heavy
  • Deep low frequency range
  • Proper focus on the midrange
  • Tireless sound
  • Good sound balance

 

Cons
  • Lacks a bit of high frequency extension
  • Insufficient resolution
  • Cortical and lacking depth of expression

 

General comment

The QCY T18 offers a very balanced studio-tuned style sound. The low resolution and the fact that listening for long periods of time does not tire the listener is a virtue, but audiophiles will find it a mediocre model with an indistinct listening style and a lack of three-dimensionality.
