AudioSense DT600 Review

Audiosense DT600

Sound performance

For this review, my main sources were: Astell&Kern SE180 / Shanling M6 Pro 21 / EarMen Sparrow. Trusted sources from trusted brands that I used extensively for the past months.

All files were played from Amazon Music HD, Apple Music, Spotify, or my own music library. Some tracks will be highlighted, just so you can try them too!

Overall signature

Seeing how good the DT200 was, I expected a lot from the AudioSense DT600. And thankfully, I was not disappointed: those are excellent in-ears. 

Bass is full, deep, and engaging. The DT200 was already impressive in that regard, but the DT600 raises the bar by quite a few levels. You’d be surprised to see how low those IEM can go, even with a small DAC like the Sparrow, or the ddHiFi TC35i. Going for 6 drivers instead of 2 gives much more power to improvements, on paper. And AudioSense made a good decision simply polishing the DT200, to reach new peaks of performances.


Resolution and clarity follow the same trend and paired with my Astell&Kern SE180 the end result is mind-blowing. Every detail, every nuance can be heard straight from the first try. It still lacks the definition of real high-end IEMs like my UM Maestro, but for less than $250, the DT600 is almost unmatched.

Of course, it’s not as powerful as the FiiO FD5 or Meze Rai Penta for example which enjoy a massive DD just for the lows. But, balanced drivers offer a level of definition and delicacy that you cannot reach with dynamic drivers. At least for the moment. And that’s especially true for transients, which are lightning-fast whatever the source I chose. 

Compared to the DT200, the AudioSense DT600 are more sensitive to the source. Every upgrade makes a massive difference while listening, especially with Sabre Chips and their massive dynamic. When I tried them with the TC35i, I found the IEM good, but a bit too v-shaped. Once I switched to the Sparrow, helped by an LC-2.5C from FiiO, the signature considerably flattened and the soundstage deeply expanded. So be careful with what you pair with your DT600.


There were no sibilants nor harshness in the sound, even with hard tracks like Impact from Manuel di Martino or techno like Nairobi from Rodriguez Jr. Everything sounded full, even, and every layer of sound was perfectly distinct from the other, never overtaking. Again, this is much more palpable on a DAP like the Shanling M6 Pro 21, where the dual Sabre DAC favors dynamic and gives the DT600 an opportunity to flex.

Once again, if your main focus is realism and accuracy – on a moderate budget – the DT600 kills it. It delivers crisp details and small notes without overloading your ears, with thick lows this time. The richness in the upper range blends perfectly into the bass and that extra glow makes the in-ear vibrant and lively, making them perfect for a daily commute.

Good impact, natural voices, powerful bass, the AudioSense DT600 played all in and won my heart. Add to that a pitch-black background, giving excellent contrast between the deep, organic bass and the mellow voices on the front ground and you have it, the perfect middle-end IEM… at least for me.

A nerdy guy with a passion for audio and gadgets, he likes to combine his DAC and his swiss knife. Even after more than 10 years of experience, Nanotechnos still collects all gear he gets, even his first MPMAN MP3 player. He likes spreadsheets, technical specs and all this amazing(ly boring) numbers. But most of all, he loves music: electro, classical, dubstep, Debussy : the daily playlist.

    Hello NanoTechnos,
    many thanks for your review!

    I’m torn between these (which are still hard to buy) and the BGVP DM8. It seems the DT600 would have a better bass extension, and maybe a more lively character. Right?

    I’m looking something with a neutral (but not liveless, boring) character which could accompany my ME500 (which I find too shouty sometimes).

    The DM8 should fit, but maybe the DT600 would be more satisfying (I’m not a basshead).

    Source would be a M5s (on a balanced cable) which I find excellent.

    Many thanks for your advice! (in case you’ve tested the DM8)

    Really enjoyed this, and decided to give it a try!
    Refreshing to see someone write about sound isolation. I use my IEMs for commuting and don’t get it when a reviewer doesn’t consider isolation.
