Premium DMT4 architecture dynamic driver
Tanchjim has equipped its latest ZERO with a 10mm composite diaphragm dynamic driver unit. The driver is designed based on Tanchjim's DMT4 architecture, employing FEA finite element analysis software to simulate and analyze driver data to optimize the waveguide acoustic structure, enhance the magnetic circuit, reduce suspension quality, and stiffen the diaphragm material Adjustments are made, etc. ZERO is designed to deliver high quality performance at a budget price point!
Precisely designed acoustic cavity structure
Tanchjim conducted extensive research and development to develop the ZERO acoustic cavity structure. This cavity structure was analyzed using Acoustic Structural Coupling ASI and Sound Transmission Loss STL techniques. This internal cavity is made with fully calculated filter densities, selected housing materials, and suspension system variables adjusted. This precisely crafted acoustic structure contributes to achieving excellent acoustic performance in the set.
Imported dustproof and waterproof filters
Tanchjim equips the front cavity of the ZERO with an imported SATTI filter. This protects the drivers and internal acoustic structure from dust and water splashes. The shell surface is also coated with a nano-coating for durability. The filter side is equipped with a stainless steel protector.

Sound quality description
In this review, I use the standard eartips size L and drive it with the FiiO M15.
TANCHJIM ZERO has a very well-balanced sound signature that can be described as neutral and flat.

Sound quality general comment
The TANCHJIM ZERO, despite its low price, not only delivers very good audio specs, but also offers excellent range and sound balance that rivals high-end models.
Of course, this does not mean that the ZERO stands alone by far in the same price range.
In terms of overall resolution, the Tripowin Lea remains at the top of its price range, and its crystal-clear midrange, which even surpasses the high-end class, keeps its rivals at bay.
In terms of overall performance, the Moondrop CHU is ahead of the ZERO. And in terms of sound balance, especially in terms of original sound fidelity, the 7Hz Salnotes ZERO outperforms the TANCHJIM ZERO.
However, in terms of range and localization accuracy in the high-frequency direction, the ZERO can outperform these rivals and is the best choice, especially for those who do not like strong low-frequency sounds.
Sound quality features
