QDC Dmagic Flagship IEM Review: 3 DD Performer
QDC, a familiar name among the audiophiles released its latest pair of flagship in-ear monitors, the QDC DMagic-C. It belongs to the brand new Dmagic circle series from the brand. This is the first pair from the brand that doesn't use a BA unit, and instead, it is one of the world's first IEM with three different DD units on each side. This is really interesting and is supposed to be tried out as soon as possible. I just couldn't control my excitement and grabbed a pair for my self. Today I am going to share my initial impressions and unboxing of this flagship pair with you all.
This gem of an IEM is priced at 1399.99$. It is available in a single multicolor variant that has a unique multicolored wooden texture, you can check more details here.

The cable itself is a hybrid cable that looks to be made up of pure single crystal copper and SPC wires.

The QDC Dmagic-C excels brilliantly in the sound quality output. It is the first IEM that has 3DD units on each side. It has a brilliantly detailed sound clarity with deep impactful bass that will soothe your soul for powerful sound. It is not overpowering that might get leaked to the other frequencies. The mids feel a bit recessed but the detailing is superb with good airiness around on the stage. Instrument details are quite crisp, there is no harshness of any kind even at louder volumes. The QDC Dmagic sounds fuller and energetic. The pair surely performs like a true flagship with a U-Shaped smooth sound profile.
The lower end on the QDC Dmagic is quite powerful. It shows deep, soul-soothing, impactful thumps that compliment really well with vocals and other frequencies making the music more enjoyable. The lower end is so clean that drum thumps leave a good impact, and is represented in clean separate layers. The pair shows good, clean rumble in the sub-bass.
The mids portion seems to be recessed a bit in the pair. It has a beautiful airiness all around the stage and carries a natural tonality for vocals and instruments. There seems to be a slight bump in the upper mids that brings vocals forward. Vocals actually are pretty crisp and carry natural weight and tonality. Listening to vocal-based artists like Damien Rice, unplugged songs is a pretty blissful experience with the pair.
The QDC Dmagic-C has a detailed treble portion. It is well-extended and transparent. The pair has an energetic sound signature, the higher end is quite lively and extensive. Instrument details are precise and perfect.
The pair has an adequately wide soundstage. It sounds intimate sometimes while listening to Vocal based artists. But overall it has an adequate soundstage for many kinds of music that I tested the pair with. I listened to Rock, Pop, Metal, Vocals, Jazz, and more. I feel the pair is very fun and makes all genres enjoyable.
The QDC Dmagic-C is a very beautiful looking pair of in-ear monitors. Surely it has a flagship price but it delivers a crisp and unmatched sound output with its unique 3-Dynamic driver configuration. The output is very crisp, detailed, and energetic. It pairs well with all the genres of music that I listen to and is going to be a part of my day to day routine now.
