Comply Foam T-500s worked pretty well for me, but in the end I preferred the stock tips.
I can relate to everything you have to say. I had the K3003 for well over a year and as I mentioned in my previous post I definitely preferred it with the "High boost" filters, so the step to the DN-2000J wasn't a big one. From memory and in the fields of detail, resolution and sound stage I even feel the DN-2000J surpasses (to some small extent) the K3003 with High Boost filters. When I first heard the DN-2000J I too found its treble somewhat too strident, but over time -...
Thanks for your reply Subhakar. Over time I've learnt it's wise to humble. I know very little about balanced mode. All I know is that it was conceived and successfully implemented as an idea to neutralize interference from strong electrical currents and powerful radio signals running in parallel with long audio cable equipment on a stage. As interference isn't usually a problem in our hobby I simply fail to see the reason to why we should consider it at all, and so far...
I had the K3003 well over a year and most of the time I used it and preferred it with the "High boost" filters. I really don't see the point in trying to turn the DN-2000J into a K3003 with reference filters (except maybe for financial reasons), if that is indeed what you're trying to accomplish? Why not simply keep your K3003 and use the classifieds for the DN-2000J? Or, do you prefer the DN-2000J over the K3003 (with reference filters) except for the treble? Yes, the...
Just out of curiosity; why do you want to go balanced? Does it really improve SQ, or do you expect interference from powerful radio signals and/or strong electrical currents running in parallel with the audio cable? My own small attempts in this field has led me absolutely nowhere. I'm not saying there's nothing to be gained and my hearing isn't perfect so... Anyway, if you care to elaborate I'd be an interested reader!
Try james444's blu-tack mod. Decrease the volume. Yes, even more! Go as low as you possibly can without loosing detail. Allow yourself to get used to low volume. Take your time. Relax. Try 100 hours of burn in (brain and hardware) Try different tips (for example these T-500 comply foam tips) Check the output impedance of your source. Preferably below 1 Ohm or so. Make sure your recordings have a decent master/mix and not too much dynamic range compression. Good luck, and...
I'm sort of doubtful whether your more than benign interpretation of H20Fidelity's urin metafor is shared by the author, hm... Anyway, it's one of many statements that I feel rather excessively rejects the treble (or treble related) of the the DN-2000J, and that's OK with me. I'm just trying to be a voice on the other end to hopefully balance things up to make sure (or at least try to make sure) people aren't too put off to give this absolutely marvelous IEM a fair chance,...
FWIW to those reading this thread trying to figure out whether the DN-2000J is for them or not, I still find H20Fidelity’s statement (among some other statements) to be an unwarranted excess; unbalanced and unfair to the DN-2000J.I never made it a secret I was initially ambivalent about the treble and I'm still careful to point out that it may not be to everyone's liking. Personally and most of the time I think it’s absolutely brilliant. Being ambivalent about something...
Yes, unfortunately reading some of the posts in this thread could lead you to the impression that the DN-2000J is a treble monster when it's far, far from. For example, just take a look at these quotes: shotgunshane"The treble. What the bloody hell?""(---) the overall brightness level is (---) unrealistically high" Idsynchrono_24"it's pretty damned bright" H20Fidelity"What good is the grand size swimming pool if the water has been contaminated with urine?" I find such...
Thanks and you're welcome!  I started to play the violin at the age of 9. I aspired to become a professional until the age of about 22 when serious back pain - caused by practicing the violin in the wrong way - put an end to it. I didn't play for 30 years but when my then eight year old daughter (now nine) started to take lessons I felt the urge to play again. There's nothing more satisfying that playing or at least trying to play the violin and I guess that goes for any...
