DZAT DT-05 – Review

DZAT DT-05

DZAT DT-05

| 8 mm Driver | 6.8 mm Driver |



🎧 DZAT may not be a brand with the largest catalog of earphones but with their modest quantity of models manufactured to date they have gained a good amount of followers. One of the keys of DZAT earphones is their premium looks, accessible price and high-class looking packaging.

The DZAT DT-05 (which is also found as Flymemo DT-05 or T-TOPER DT-05) are the top of the line of DZAT earphones to this day, inside the very fancy looking housings there is a double dynamic driver configuration. This means that there are 2 dynamic drivers (specifically an 8 mm DD and a 6.8 mm DD) which will be independently responsible for reproducing specific audio frequencies, the 8 mm dynamic driver will take care of the lower audio frequencies and the 6.8 mm for middle to high audio frequencies.

The housings of the DZAT DT-05 are made of plastic and slightly translucent, there are 2 golden discs on the outer part of the housings that give an aesthetically premium feel to the design and which are trying to represent the location and size of each dynamic driver that is inside. Using plastics as the construction material gives the DZAT a light resulting weight and despite this the quality of the plastics feel sturdy and kind of inline with the plastics of earphones such as the KZ ZS5, KZ ZST, KZ ZST PRO and KZ ED12.

The cable is rounded, very robust and nicely designed with a black and silver pattern and a rubberized transparent shield; at the end of the cable near the earpieces there is a memory cable section. Every detail in the cable such as the cable bifurcation, inline mic/control and stereo plug section are made of metal with a gold and black color to follow the earpieces colors. There is an inline microphone and 1 button control in the cable that allows to answer/reject calls, play/pause music and skip songs.

You can buy the DZAT DT-05 in black with golden details and you can choose to get it with or without the inline mic/control, choosing the mic-less option will cost a bit less.

B
Bass/Sub Bass

The double dynamic drivers of the DZAT DT-05 are able to provide punchy and deep bass, with more mid-bass than sub-bass. Bass is energetic and will cover any song’s bass requisites without lacking punch or depth.

An EQ adds a substantial quantity of mid-bass and sub-bass.

Running the DZAT through our extreme bass tests with a Fiio E12 portable amplifier set to high gain and with it’s bass boost on (a custom basshead EQ was applied), they were able to handle up to 40% of the Fiio’s maximum power. The resulting bass was hugely augmented achieving a mild impact and rumble but still unable to reach the baseline KZ ATE impact (not by far though) as to classify them as basshead.

M
Mids/Vocals

Mids are rolled off on the lower mids end with very warm and recessed sound, lower vocals lack energy and feel distant. Higher mids are also rolled off and remain free of harsh sounding peaks at any given moment.

With an EQ, mids become a bit boxy and overall their sound quality deteriorates. On the positive side, lower vocals remove some recession and sound somewhat less distant. Higher mids start to become harshy at times.

H
Highs/Treble

The highs of the DZAT DT-05 are dark and very recessed, they lack brightness and there is no detail at all. There are no traces of sibilance; piercing highs usually are not present but can show up a bit with very strong high peaks. Overall, their highs are too dark and lack sound quality.

After an EQ, there is a slight increase of brightness and a bit of detail is gained but still they resolve a low quantity of it. Sibilance remains absent while piercing highs become stronger and more frequent.

SL
Sound Leak

The sound that leaks out of these earphones is on par with most average earphones, meaning that their sound will be heard by nearby people in normally noisy situations if moderate high to high levels of volume are set. On more noisy situations or setting lower volumes their sound leaking will blend with environmental sound.

SI
Sound Isolation

The substantially sized earpieces and deep enough fit offers a very effective sound isolation performance even while using low volumes.

C
Comfort

Although they may seem heavy because of its size, the DZAT DT-05 are comfortable and not heavy at all. The robust cable and memory section add to their secure fit.

EQ
Response to Equalization

The response to custom equalization was not great, some improvements were provided but also several issues. Bass gained punch and depth with no cons added; mids slightly removed lower vocals recesssion but sounded boxy and higher mids became harsh; high frequencies added a bit of brightness and detail but piercing highs started to show up more frequently and stronger.
