DOBOLY Q2
Ø6mm Dynamic Driver

One of the least known models by the ultra-budget brand DOBOLY is the Q2. This model is much better built than most DOBOLY products, and also offers a better sound overall. The bass is punchy and precise, you can actually feel it. The mids and highs sound very nice, even if slightly darkened and not very bright. The level of detail is about avarage.

Pros
Cons
  • Exceptional bass quality. The sub-bass adds excitment to the sound.
  • An overall satisfying sound quality.
  • Very high volume levels without any amplification required.
  • A dedicated volume slider on the inline remote.
  • The remote has support for both legacy and modern mobile phones.
  • The mids and highs aren't the clearest and brightest that I've heard. They are somewhat darkened, but not too much.
  • The splitter and the remote are the same thing here, which means the mic is too far from your mouth.
  • No strain reliefs between the earphones and the cable, instead you have thin metallic tubes. Not very clever durability-wise.

Comfort & Fit

The pre-applied generic black tips are fine, they suit these earphones well and hold in place even in long listening sessions, but may occasionally slide out slightly.

Lows / Bass

Powerful bass response with plenty of sub-bass that will tickle your ear canals. Amazing earphones for bass-heavy music.

Mids / Vocals

The mids and vocals are very lively and exciting, but sound darkened. Still, I'd rate them much higher than the average earphones.

Highs / Treble

The highs are loud and clear, but also pretty darkened. For a lot of music styles, this kind of sound is actually quite suitable.
