“Some "Provenance" to the Brand Name: Ocharaku is a "tea themed" company based in Japan.

“ Introduction Hello head-fiers! Now, you’re going to read a review of a spectacular earphone named Dunu DN-2000!

“Hybrid 3 ways: 2x Balance Armature + 1x 10mm Dynamic driver http://www.dunu-topsound.com/DN-1000.html I was a bit disappointed with DN-1000 when I tried it out of the box.

DUNU is a fairly new company and was started as a brand of the Top Sound OEM making IEMs that utilize very high quality housings that have a similar look and feel, but better build quality to the Monster IEMs. I have had a chance to hear some DUNU products briefly, but as I now stick to custom IEMs and higher priced universals I didn’t perform a full evaluation. I was a little surprised...
