gorsun C6
Ø9mm Dynamic Driver

The C6 model by gorsun offers a balanced and flat sound experience. Some might appreciate it, but I personally find it lacking and unimpressive. I prefer sound with more vibe, emphasis and excitement.

Pros
Cons
  • Decent flat sound signature with no noticable peaks. Some might appreciate it.
  • Robust build quality and a quite attractive design.
  • The highs are quite darkish and colored, quiet and not so crisp. This has a negative effect on the mids as well, especially vocals, as they lack significant detail.
  • A flat cable is always a bad idea. They are usually less durable than normal cables.
  • The inline remote is a generic and cheap one, which can be found on many cheap earphones. A bad choice by the designers.

Comfort & Fit

I had some issues keeping these earphones inside with a good seal for an extended time with the included tips, so I had to use tips from other earphones instead.

Lows / Bass

The lows are present, but are quite unimpressive. They are moderate and even flat and balanced, and no sub-bass at all.

Mids / Vocals

The mids are quite balanced, not too warm and not overly bright. However, they have some darkish tone to them. The mids sound very similar to gorsun C7, only with less excitement because of the lack of lows and highs.

Highs / Treble

The highs are darkened and relatively muffled, in a sense where they lack brightness and detail, and aren't vivid in the overall sound. The sound focuses on the mids and high-mids basically.
