KZ DQ6 Unboxing and First Impressions

KZ DQ6 Unboxing and First Impressions

Hi everyone,

Today, I got the KZ DQ6. This IEM contains 3 dynamic drivers per side, which is a bit different than the usual BA and dynamic drivers combination they usually make. It is made of a single 10mm “Xun” unit that handles the bass and 2x 6mm drivers that handles the mids and treble. KZ is well known to experiment with different driver configurations and this is no exception. We’ll see how they perform below.

Unboxing

The box is the usual we get with KZ IEMs. It’s small and practical.

In the inside, we can see both units. The form factor is similar to their previous KZ ZSX “Terminator”.

KZ DQ6 3

We get the usual offering with these IEMs: A silver 0.75mm 2-pin cable, which is what KZ is now packaging, the tips, and the usual instruction manual.

The headphone tips are no longer the “star” tips. Rather, they decided to change them to a soft white tip. Unfortunately, these tips are way too soft and they make the DQ6 not fit the ear properly. This is no problem, as most would use third-party tip, but there is actually another problem: The nozzle diameter is smaller than the previous KZ IEMs, making some of the tips not compatible with them.

I tried the SednaEarFit Light to replace the stock tips, but the nozzle diameter of them are bigger than the KZ DQ6 and therefore, they would get out and not seal properly. Fortunately, the SednaEatFit Xelastec fits as well as the Spinfit CP100:

First Impressions

This IEM has a great tuning and I consider it an improvement over their latest hybrid IEMs. In the bass region, there is more presence without being overblown or being too fast. The mids are less recessed. Vocals are clearer, not metallic and warmer. The treble sounds extended without being sharp and fatiguing, something I had issues with their hybrids. The instruments are very well separated and well coordinated. None of the frequencies dominate the audio and seem to work together to produce a beautiful, musical, detailed, warmer sound.

I also own the KZ ZS7, ZS10 Pro, AS16, ZSX and ZAX, and I feel these DQ6, while being cheaper and having less drivers, do sound better than all of the previous mentioned models. I can also listen to these for more time without having ear fatigue. For me, these are the most balanced KZ IEMs I have ever tried.

Conclusion

It’s interesting to see KZ try something different than their usual hybrids. They nailed it with the tuning on these, really! Just be sure to change those stock tips to something better like the SpinFit CP100 or the SednaEarFit Xelastec. You’ll note how comfortable they will be and the sound will not disappoint you.

Re-releasing PAQCompress v0.5.9

Re-releasing PAQCompress v0.5.9

Hi everyone,

Yesterday, I released PAQCompress v0.5.9:

PAQCompress v0.5.9

This release added paq8pxd v102. Unfortunately, the executables included in that release were built as a shared executable, rather than a static one. This meant that for some people, it failed to run, with messages saying it needed the following DLL files: zlib1.dll, libwinthread-1.dll, and libbz2-1.dll. Today’s release fixes this.

The ALKOO Case for the Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. Edition

The ALKOO Case for the Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. Edition

Hi everyone,

Since I got the Super Mario Bros. Edition Game & Watch, I’ve been playing with it occasionally, since it’s a good time spender. I must say that I’m kind of addicted to playing Super Mario Bros. The Lost Levels. The game is so hard that I can’t even pass the 3rd level.

I’ve also been playing Ball, but I don’t like when the game starts as it’s very slow. However, as it progresses, I’m enjoying that challenge. The other thing I like is how the Game & Watch saves the progress so I can continue playing where I stopped last time.

Because of how I like this product, I decided to get a case to keep it safely stored. You can find a bunch of cases on Amazon, but I went with the ALKOO Case:

ALKOO Game&Watch Super Mario Edition 1

The case seem to be of good quality and it’s sure to keep our Game & Watch safe.

The interior is soft and allows us to store the Game & Watch as well as a charging cable:

ALKOO Game&Watch Super Mario Edition 4

The Game & Watch fits perfectly inside and is easy to take out too.

ALKOO Game&Watch Super Mario Edition 5

This way, it is not gathering dust, especially on the screen, since it is not protected by anything.

This case comes in 2 colors: Black and Blue. You can get them on Amazon at the following links:

Hidizs adds support for MQA on their AP80 and AP80 Pro DAPs

Hidizs adds support for MQA on their AP80 and AP80 Pro DAPs

Hi everyone,

It seems Hidizs released today a firmware for the Hidizs AP80 and AP80 Pro Digital Audio Players (DAP). The only improvement here seems to be the addition of MQA support.

Hidizs AP80 and AP80 Pro MQA update

The new firmware version is 1.5 for the AP80 Pro and 2.3 for the AP80

The official changelog for both firmware states the same:

Update Content:

1. Add MQA support.

You can download the firmware for these players at the following links:

This update comes as Hidizs will start to sell their DH80/DH80S DAC and Amp which can render MQA files.

The AP80/AP80 Pro is the first MQA DAP from Hidizs, joining the Hiby products of family, which also use the same Operating System, Hiby OS.

The Verbatim CD-RW 25pk

The Verbatim CD-RW 25pk

Hi everyone,

A few days ago, I wrote I was trying to burn a Verbatim CD-RW on some old IDE drives. Today, I’m showing you the pack of these discs I got last year, which is what I’m still using to this date.

These discs can be burned up to 12x. However, my drives can only burn them up to 10x. I don’t remember owning a drive that actually allowed me to burn at 12x. For some reason, they all can burn these at 10x.

The discs are top logo branded:

On the data side, it has a dark grey color:

Verbatim CD-RW 6

Once burned, it is a bit darker. Notice in the inner ring the light color and then it turns darker.

Verbatim CD-RW 7

The burned shade will depend on the burner used. In this particular case, the burned area is a bit lighter. Note that, however, the disc had previous data before, which is why the rest of it looks darker.

The discs are perfectly compatible on my Oakcastle Portable CD Player and this is how I’m testing them before finally moving the disc to a CD-R.

Verbatim CD-RW 8

Overall, I’m pleased with these discs.

You can get them on Amazon at the following link:
