DOBOLY Q6
Dynamic Driver

One of the most popular models made by the ultra-budget brand DOBOLY is the Q6. I was expecting these cheap earphones to sound repulsive and distorted, but they actually managed to surprised me. Although the mids and highs aren't the most precise in terms of clarity and detail, the bass performed very impressively, with absolutely no distortions. For such a small price, this one is a must-have.

Pros
Cons
  • The bass response is really impressive for such basic earphones. Even the mids and highs sound better than a bunch of much pricier earphones.
  • Quite comfortable to wear.
  • Extremely cheap.
  • The mids and highs sound harsh and colored.
  • The build quality is very basic (which is fair for the price).
  • There's only a M-size pair of ear tips included, which may be problematic if the pre-applied tips don't fit you.

Comfort & Fit

These earphones were designed to lean against the ears in order to stay firmly inside the ear canals. They are usually comfortable, but their sharp edges could cause discomfort.

Lows / Bass

Very deep and capable. Massive sub-bass response, even though sometimes seem to be unstable and about to distort.

Mids / Vocals

The mids sound colored, darkened and slightly sibilant at the same time, because of the excess highs. They are usually overpowered by the sharp highs.

Highs / Treble

The highs are sharp and very loud, but also quite dark and harsh. They are overemphasized but not overly detailed, and could get unpleasant, depending on the source.
