How are sub bass and bass compared to blon-03? I wanted a flat sound like tin t2, but not anemic in the bass.
I don't have the t2 to compare but I do have the t3 and I'd describe the DT6 Pro as being a similar signature in the mids and highs but much warmer bass.

Nice write up! It's great to see that you and Danfish98 had similar impressions of the DT6 Pro as my initial impressions I shared the other day. Now that I've had time to really listen to them and do some tip rolling I can definitely say that I like them better than the regular DT6. I settled on using Sony hybrid tips on the Pro (just as I've been using on the regular DT6), since with the stock wide bore tips the treble was a little too sibilant for me at times. It sounds very smooth, though, with the Sony hybrids. Having the same tips on both models also allowed me to compare them like for like more accurately. Overall they sound somewhat more warm, natural and inviting. I prefer their sound and fit over the original model. In fact, I think these are now my favorite IEMs in the under $50 price range.
I'm glad you liked it, and I totally agree with you on tip rolling. I wanted to test them out only with stock setup and hence avoided tip rolling. Do Sony hybrids affect the mids and mid-bass as usual? The Pro version is indeed a step up from the standard version. Bass, mids and that soundstage are truly premium in nature. I might sell my DT6 as they're completely redundant

Nice confirmation bias going on with the dt6pro here. I'm extremely skeptical of senfer being competent at tuning anything right but if ppl are happy with crap so be it vOv

I don't like the DT6. I doubt I would like the Pro.

C12 is "better" by almost every conceivable metric. It is technically a really good IEM and the timbre (which has been a bone of contention for me with KZ and TRN hybrid stuff in the past) is very good.

However, the thing with the Blon is that it is just so musical. The soundstage is OK at best, the separation well below par. It totally skips detail and nuance that the CCA picks up. But it's got that je ne sais quoi that reminds me of listening to vinyl.

I honestly couldn't say buy one over the other. They're both top notch (these two, the Blon BL-01 and the Tin T2 are my four "special" ChiFi IEMs) in their own way. Technical brilliance Vs utter musical bliss. The only thing I will add is that the BL03 is fussy about tips and source (it needs a few more mW than a phone provides to grip hold of the bass and poor fit makes the mid bass quite inconsistent) whereas the C12 is more a plug and play experience. Tips and source make a difference but it is maybe 5% not 50.

To think when I first joined my list of IEMs was IE60, Kz ZS10, TRN V80, Tin T2...

Existe alguma chance de algum dt6 ficar com defeito? As opiniões são muito divergentes

I'm not even sure what I have on the way. Dunu Titan 1ES, couple of lucky bags, a balanced cable for between BL03 and ES100. Think that's it but I forget...

I don't speak Portuguese but based on what I remember of Spanish and with a little bit of context-reading I think the answer is - no, I am pretty sure my DT6 are working fine. I don't like the timbre at all and they sound quite imbalanced across the frequency range.

I know it has been said many times some time ago, but as this thread is over 20.000 posts and people still ask about Tin T2, I think it's good idea to remember that not only bass quantity, but sound quality globally considered, depends largely on fit/seal. "Stock" fitting (cable down, each earpiece in the "correct" ear) could be a nightmare to get good seal, bass most probably will be non existent, distant mids, and thin and crappy sound in general. Switching earpieces (right earpiece in left ear, and so on) and using cable over the ear the magic appears, and the sound becomes full across all frequencies. It's a completely different earphone, and a very pleasant one: balanced, detailed, airy, good timbre, well textured bass notes.

Be sure to run your bl03 high voltage balanced via the es100, you’ll be in for a treat, it really grabs hold and controls that excellent carbon driver

same goes with "negative confirmation", negative suggestions and nocebo :jecklinsmile:

glad that senfer was capable to improve upon the dt6 - so it's not just a one trick pony or out of sheer luck - lol (love them as well)

People seem to like the MT100 quite a lot as well. A couple of their other IEMs were also generally well received. But we all hear things somewhat differently and have different tastes. For that same reason I'm not going to say that the Pro is objectively an improvement over the DT6. Some people may prefer the standard DT6. Even I went back and forth on the question. I just ended up last night feeling that I preferred the DT6 Pro. I still haven't listened to them a whole lot and my opinion could change. I'm not trying to hype anything and I honestly don't care what other people prefer. To each their own.
