Intro

SENFER regularly produces good to very good in-ear hybrids, which are also affordable. The DT8, EN900, XBA 6in1 (Sony replica) are certainly worth mentioning here.
With the DT6 you even get 3 different drivers in one housing (DD, BA & piezo drivers). I haven't seen Priezo drivers in any budget in-ear so far, so I was more than curious about the differences between BA hybrids and Priezo drivers. Equally astonishing is the low price of 20 € for the configuration. You could read in the net that the DT6 is a real insider tip. Let's see what we have.

Handling

There's not much to say or complain about here.
The DT6 are made of metal, have a great feel and are extremely comfortable to wear. If you have foamtips at hand, you can achieve a better hold and even get 1-2 dB out of the bass.

The cable is nothing special, but serves its purpose. What the DT6 does perfectly is the isolation. You don't notice anything at all about your environment, even at a moderate volume (foamtips!). My boss had to make himself physically noticeable, because I had heard absolutely nothing and he said he had almost screamed.

Sound

The SENFER DT6 will not only have to compete with the TIN AUDIO T2 because of the many hymns of praise, but also because of the neutral tuning, even if the T2 is twice as expensive.

The bass is not for bassheads. But that's not what the DT6 is all about; it's the balance between the individual frequency ranges that counts, and that's where it fits in perfectly. It goes extremely low and reflects this cleanly. However, it tends to be more in the mid-bass range. He does that on the point without slipping into the mids. In short, the bass can, if he wants to and has to, also power up, but rather loves the harmonic coexistence with the mids and trebles. He is very well textured and simply harmonious. Thumbs up! Here the comparison to the T2 concerning the impact is not quite clear, the two don't take anything from the quality, only the modded T2 has more pressure, unmodded however the bass of the T2 is more neutral and more reserved. With the DT6 you get exactly the middle. Every genre is sufficiently covered here.

In the mid-range, the difference becomes a bit clearer. I'm still enthusiastic about the mid-range of the T2 and haven't heard anything comparable in the price range yet.
The middles of the DT6 are a little bit reduced. But this is only really clear in a direct comparison with the T2. They are very detailed and do an excellent job, especially when it comes to the separation of the individual instruments. This is partly really incredible good, especially for 20 €. But what makes the T2 better is the presence of voices, especially with males. There's just more crisp in it and they get better forward without getting pushy. Nevertheless, the middles of the DT6 play in their own league in the price category. Also here you have to say again: thumbs up!

The trebles are not to be reproached either. Here and there the sibilants come a bit forward, but usually with weaker sources or music material, but this is more noticeable with the T2. Otherwise they are very detailed with a lot of micro details. They are from the brighter side, but without becoming unpleasant. Even over a long hearing period they do not tend to fatigue. There seems to be no upper limit for the audible range. You can hear the T2 with the DT6 quite well in A/B comparison. It is also noticeable that the T2's sound is slightly clearer and slightly louder. However, the T2's treble is a bit brighter, which makes the DT6 a bit more relaxed. The piezo driver really gets the treble through very well, because it gives them presence without simulating details by exaggerated increase (keyword: KZ) and lets them oscillate lightly and airily in the room. I hope we'll see this type of driver more often now.

Where the DT6 also plays a big role is the stage, not only in width, but also in depth. Sometimes you get lost in the music and pay attention to what happens musically. Since I only have two thumbs, there is a high-four here.

Outro

What you can get here for 20 € is amazing. Not only that 3 different drivers are used where each one of them is doing his job consistently and with full conviction, but the DT6 is also far ahead in the workmanship. The comparison with the T2 is quite appropriate and the DT6 lands only scarcely under my reference. What distinguishes the DT6 is its natural sound, the balance between bass, mids and trebles, as well as the fantastic stage and separation. In contrast to the T2, the DT6 also forgives weaker music material and can convince in every genre. It's your own fault if you don't get them!

Legend

Haptic:

Here the processing plays a role and the usability of the scope of supply. Additionally the appearance, wearing comfort and robustness.


Value:
Here I evaluate for me subjectively the price/performance ratio - does not flow into the evaluation!

Z: No Brainer

A: money well spent

B: all right, you can do

C: gives better for less money

D: overpriced

E: collector's price

Daily life:
Here, I focus on the long-term audibility and whether I can hear it well out of the box. This is of course very subjective and therefore only a minimal deduction or bonus.
