Dunu DN-1000 Reviews


Very musical and well balanced tonality when paired with eartips from the JVC FXD series IEM


Pros: Musical and well balanced tonality. One of the best IEM with the most balanced and realistic tonality, for my sonic preferences.

Cons: Requires 3rd party silicone eartips (JVC EP-FX8) to sound best.

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. The treble was a bit metallic with the stock silicone eartips. The first few weeks with DN-1000, I used foam eartips, Comply T-500, that smoothen the treble, made the DN-1000 sounds very open and airy, but a bit lacking in bass. Until I did some experiments with more eartips, and found the silicone eartips from my JVC HA-FXD80 give the best sound and tonal balance for my DN-1000. Treble from the foam eartips & bass from the silicone eartips. Best of both worlds. It was a very happy moment, and I...

Dunu First Hybrid!


Pros: Amazing Well Balanced Sound, Great Build Quality, Nice Accesories Pack

Cons: Large and heavy housings

Full review here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/699630/review-dunu-dn-1000-3-way-hybrid       Sound: This is the main part of the review, and the most important for every audio gear. Dunu's house sound usually leans towards to either the warm and smooth, or bassy signatures. Even their single balanced armature based IEMs were more mid-centered with rolled-off highs and lows. Knowing this, I had my worries about the result of the DN-1000 tuning. Why? It's simple. For their first hybrid earphone, Dunu chose one of the best (and of my favorites) Dual BA driver on the market, the TWFK, which is known by its extreme brightness with amazing hyper detail and ultra high speed,...

My first chinese earphones: Sounds better than earphones and headphones twice its price


Pros: Fun V-shaped sound, bass transients/impact, detailed highs, clear midrange, pinpoint details in wide soundstage

Cons: No removable cable, high sensitivity=noise when plugged into laptop, Cable quality, Midrange is thin sounding

Excellent sound quality. I can't find any fault with these except for the fact they have no removable cables. The DN-1000's put to shame any IEM under $300 currently in the market right now. Highly recommended.   Note: If there are really two versions of the Dunu's, I think I got the "China" version of the DN-1000's instead of the international version as the treble is very extended.

Wonderful Sounding Hybrid


Pros: Bass, Separation, Soundstage, Overall Sound, Accessories

Cons: Cheap Inside Box, Non-detachable Cable

Dunu has been in the audio industry for a while now as an OEM/ODM supplier but only recently have they started making earphones for themselves. A lot of their IEM models are metal and they have quite a reputation on Head-Fi, many reviewers praising their lower end models for their awesome build and their value for money. Anyway, recently Dunu introduced a new model into their product line, the DN-1000, and that is what I will be reviewing today. The DN-1000 is their new flagship and costs just over $200 and is the model above their previous flagship, the DN-19 (Tai-Chi).       It all started when Dunu generously arranged a giveaway on Head-Fi which I entered and...

Great sound, great value, strange omissions


Pros: Great clarity, soundstage, bass presence, build quality and looks. Can be worn cable up or down.

Cons: Non-detachable cables, single flange tips quality, highs can be a touch sibilant

Update after about 100 hours with the DN1K.   Build quality and fit: The housings and 45deg plug are pretty solid. Cans are a bit heavy but no problem staying in my ears, even without the spacers. Wearing them cable down can become fatiguing on the ear canal after a couple of hours. Cable is thinner than I expected, especially the part below the Ysplit. One thing I find annoying is the rubber wrap that I can't hide anywhere so it dangles around when I walk.I appreciate the attention to detail but I find it utterly useless.   Tips: The clear single flanges (no spacers) give me the best fit and seal out of the silicone tips, while offering great sound at lower volumes....

An excellent sounding IEM that punches above its price in terms of sound quality


Pros: Overall sound quality, Massive selection of accessories

Cons: Upper midrange is a bit recessed, tip rolling limited

First of all, I would like to thank DUNU for choosing me as the winner of a contest to receive a free pair of DN-1000s.    The DUNU DN-1000 is a part of a relatively new and evolving class of IEMs, known as “hybrid” IEMs because they have not only balanced armatures but also dynamic drivers inside. In most cases, the dynamic driver is assigned to the bass, and the balanced armatures to the mids and treble. The DN-1000s are no different. It’s hard enough to make a good sounding IEM using just a dynamic driver or one balanced armature; adding more drivers (especially dynamics and BAs mixed together) has more of a risk of ruining the sound quality, but has bigger rewards such as...

DUNU DN1000 - Immensely Capable Hybrid IEM


Pros: Sonics, soundstage, bass!, build quality, overall design, value, accessories

Cons: Weight, nozzle design (no lip), cable hardens over time

Introducing Dunu's DN1000 Hybrid (dual BA + single dynamic) IEM   I've been lucky enough recently to start reviewing for a few IEM and ear-bud manufacturers.  After reading other comments and reviews on Dunu's latest flagship (the DN-1000 triple driver hybrid), and communicating with Rocky from Dunu, I got my chance to listen to this wonderful product recently. They arrived a little over three weeks ago – and in that time I’ve logged a lot of hours with them (in fact they've been my IEM of choice).  I’ve listed price at  USD $215 (current Amazon price at time of writing) – however this is not what I paid for them (they are a review sample). ...
