| 49mm2 Piezoelectric Driver | Balanced Armature | 12mm Dynamic Driver |
🎧 We are reviewing the SENFER DT6 a super affordable triple driver earphone with unexpectedly advanced tech specs for the price.
The Senfer DT6 features a very special triple hybrid configuration with 1 balanced armature, a very large 12mm dynamic driver and a 49mm2 piezoelectric driver (square 7x7mm) – in the past we have reviewed another budget multi-driver earphone with a piezoelectric driver, the Xiaomi Mi Dual Driver Earphones BRE01JY.
The DT6 conserves the outstanding construction quality and robustness of every previous model from SENFER,. This is thanks to the special Kirksite metal alloy chosen for the housings of the SENFER DT6 – with a housing’s durability similar to the Senfer 4in1 and Senfer DT2 Plus.
In addition to this, the Senfer DT6 has silver metal front housing’s terminations – other earphones with similar construction quality and hefty weight include the:
- Sony MDR-EX650AP
- Yinyoo V2
- BQEYZ BQ3 / KB3
- BQEYZ KC2 and K2
- TRN V80
- Monster Beats iBeats
- MONSTER Beats urBeats
- Swing EC1
- MacaW TX-80
- 1MORE Crystal Piston In-Ear Headphones
- KZ ED15
The cables have MMCX connectors, which provides one of the most secure connections among detachable cable connectors for IEM. The cables are rounded and very rubberized with a dark silver finish while the cable bifurcation section, inline remote/mic and 3.5mm jack are all built in metal.
The eartips placed on the units have a special design with 3 rings that provide a better seal and more secure fit.
The photos of the Senfer DT6 that resellers are using make them look awkward or not very clearly defined regarding their form factor and style but as you can appreciate from our photos, the Senfer DT6 has a conical frustum shape (truncated cone) and very angled nozzles – this is a shape and design style seen previously on earphones such as the:
It is nice seeing that Senfer has opted for a form factor that has proven history in superb comfort and fit.
You can buy the SENFER DT6 in dark metal color.

The SENFER DT6 unboxing results in 3x eartips, 1x red pair with 3 rings, 1x cable clip and the detachable MMCX cable.
Bass & Sub Bass
The SENFER DT6 has full bodied lower frequencies that will not lack depth nor punch.
Their mid-bass and sub-bass will be able to fulfill every music genre requirements but do not expect an overcooked bass nor a bass-only sound out of them.
Instead, the Senfer DT6 provide an evenly distributed response that adds body and energy to the sound signature without overstepping on mids and highs.
Still, important to highlight that their bass personality will not be ideal for users looking for a bass-centered experience nor EDM listeners as there are brands with a bassier profile like KZ, MEIZU, QKZ, Beats, Plextone, AWEI.
Also note, that the 9.25/10 score in this section corresponds to their clean and balanced bass response and not to their impact/strength (remember that a higher score in this section does not necessarily mean a stronger bass response)
An EQ reveals a huge increment of sub-bass and a fair amount of added punch

Mids & Vocals
The SENFER DT6 have warm but not muffled sound with clear lower mids and alive vocals.
Male vocals are not too distant nor laid back yet neither overemphasized. Female vocals and upper mids are clear and crisp but do not become harsh.
Senfer did an excellent job tuning the mids of the DT6 with a nice balance between clarity and warmth without falling into a forward nor muddy sound, represented with a technically impeccable flat midrange.
The mids of the Senfer DT6 will be very enjoyable to listeners looking for a clear but not forward sound that is still warm and inviting.
A custom EQ can help the Senfer DT6 to add a bit more “spiciness” to their mids with a slight bump over male and female vocals while still retaining the non-harsh profile.
Highs & Treble
The SENFER DT6 highs have an excellent amount of detail resolved and a bright profile but that does not sound overdone. Piercing and sibilant highs are mostly absent and do not invade their sound.
Much like with their mids, their higher frequencies follow the tuning style with a nicely balanced sound that does not become annoying.
Expect a pleasant amount of brightness and detail and no fatiguing peaks.
A much more open and bright highs response is revealed with a custom EQ, the Senfer DT6 will provide a less gentle and a bit more aggressive tuning but without getting fatiguing.
With a sort of open/semi-open back design, the Senfer DT6 does not provide the most silent leakage available but neither shows excessively leakage levels.

The sound isolation provided by the SENFER DT6 is stronger than on many average earphones with a noticeable reduction of the surroundings perception and a nearly absolute isolation when dialing up the volume.
