Senfer DT6 Unboxing

A blind dive into the sub-$50 chifi world recommended by Discord user “moarbass” and sponsored by one of my Patrons, Ken. Special thanks to him for biting the bullet for all of us.

The DT6 is interesting on paper, it’s a piezo/dynamic/BA hybrid all for the low low price of $25. Of course, paper specifications can only get you so far.

The DT6 comes with a standard, 3-sized set of tips and a cable clip. That’s about it as far as accessories go, though not unexpected for $25.

Initial impressions

Overwhelming bass was the first thing that came to mind. Not particularly bad quality bass, mind you, just really had to ignore and takes the centre of attention.

Tone accuracy ranges from “slightly off” to “completely out of whack”. Vocals seem to be relatively okay on the DT6 but I almost recoiled with disgust when saxophones kicked in.

Not going to be a recommendation for me. Interesting tech for sure but subpar implementation.

And of course, the measurements:

Full review in the coming days (mini-review in this case though, not much to talk about), which of course includes the final ranks. Patrons of my Patreon (all tiers) will get early access whenever it comes out.

  1. Hey Crinacle,
    Did you try a different cable?
    I also heard the exact same things you described from your review but I tried my Tin audio T2’s cable and noticed a significant change in sound.
    I’m not sure if I’m having placebo or anything but let me know if you experience the same thing.

  2. Something strange I noticed is that Senfer has now changed all the DT6 names so that it was 1 BA + 1DD, but in the diagrams they advertise they all still show a piezo drivers for whatever reason. Which makes me question is they ever had a Piezo in them in the first place although the shells do say 3+3 on them. Senfer also now has a newer model called the DT6 Pro with 1DD + 2BA + Piezo.

    1. I opened my pair for shits-and-giggles, my unit has a Piezo driver connected to the DD. Apparently Senfer removed the Piezo driver sometime in 2020/21 judging by the current IEM description on Aliexpress.

      Bought mine in Nov 2019.

      Timbre is definitely not great on these but you can do far worse for $20. Tuning is pretty decent minus the somewhat bloated bass.
