Dunu DN-2000: An Earphone Forged by Heaven.

Posted

Pros: Balanced sound with wow factors, spacious soundstage, and excellent transparency. The supple cable, the included tips, and the housing material.

Cons: Heaviest earphone I've ever own. Prone to smudges, oil, scratches, and dent. Mid bass could have little more presence or "oomph".

Introduction Hello head-fiers! Now, you’re going to read a review of a spectacular earphone named Dunu DN-2000! It’s a hybridized earphone consisting of two Balanced Armature (BA) drivers and a 10 mm dynamic driver; although the driver configuration isn’t specifically described in their main website, I assume it has one TWFK (or two-in-one BA) driver that covers the treble and mid-range and a dynamic driver as the woofer. Hybrid earphone was considered a breakthrough in earphone technology back in 2012 and the famous one I know was the AKG K3003 which was my main coveted hybrid earphone but sadly its price was bloody expensive, costing at $1300, for such little piece. As I waited in...

DN-2000 : Silky SQ, slightly rough fit

Posted

Pros: Build quality, SQ, balance, soundstage and imaging, clarity, accessory range, design innovation (for the most part)

Cons: Long term comfort, microphonics, no lip on nozzle

For larger views of any of the photos (1200 x 800) - please click on the individual images INTRODUCTION   Because I’ve been involved with some review samples with my Australian brethren in the last couple of years, I’ve had the chance to hear some IEMs I’ve been curious about in the last year or so, but haven’t been able to (or inclined to) purchase for myself. One of these has been the DUNU DN-2000 – and I’d like to take the opportunity to thank my Ozzie mate Vic for the loaner over the last 5 weeks.  I’ve enjoyed the opportunity immensely.   For this review – I have abridged it slightly (compared to my normal reviews) mainly because the DN-2000 arrived just as an...

[Poor Man Reviews] Dunu's DN-2000

Posted

Pros: Soundstage, Bass and Treble Performance,

Cons: Quirky Design, Some Build Quality Questions, and Lack of Grain

DUNU'S DN-2000 Quick Link To Review Thread Here.   INTRODUCTION It has been a little while since my last earphone review, so I am quite excited to be presenting a new review on Dunu's DN-2000 IEM.  Before I continue any further, I would like to offer a big thank you to Fred at Dunu for responding to my request and sending me a sample unit to review.  Once again, here are the usual disclaimers about this review.  I am neither an employee nor an affiliate of Dunu, and all photos are taken and owned by me.     Dunu is a comparatively new player in the audio field, but that hasn’t stopped it from making waves in the audio community. ...

DUNU DN-2000: A great Three Way IEM

Posted

Pros: Sound Quality, Build Quality, Comfort, Value.

Cons: Cable could have been braided.

Me: I am a 21 year old Engineering student living in a small town in India. I would like to call myself a music enthusiast, rather than an audiophile. I was inspired by music since childhood, and as the time passed, the passion of music grew in me, and that subsequently led me to join Head-Fi. Eventually, I found the pleasure of listening to music mainly by the HD600 and recently, by the seductive LCD2 headphones, and realized the true components of recorded music. I usually like to listen to Indian Classical Music along with Bollywood songs. My main listening genres include classical, vocal, instrumental, jazz and sometimes pop.     Intro:  Dunu-Topsound,...

Perfection At This Price Point

Posted

Pros: Sound, Build, Accessories, Design

Cons: Case

First I’d like to thank Rocky from Dunu for sending me a DN-2000 to review. Those who have been following the mid-range IEM market might have heard of Dunu and their previous flagship, the DN-1000. I have to admit, not long ago, I had never heard of Dunu, but after I heard the DN-1000, I began to read some reviews on their other products, and all their IEMs seemed to look very impressive and have a somewhat boosted bass. Dunu has recently come out with a new model, the DN-2000, which is what I will be reviewing today.   Some of you may have seen my Dunu DN-1000 review that I wrote a while back. I really enjoyed the DN-1000 a lot, and I found them to be a rather special and unique...

Looking for Mr Perfect? Please meet Mr DUNU DN-2000

Posted

Pros: Incredibly addictive midrange and vocals, superb bass and treble, and excellent everything else

Cons: Non-rounded rear edges could be slightly uncomfortable depending on your ear size and shape

    First of all, a big THANK YOU to @rockywu for providing the review unit. It is much appreciated, and my humble ears are feeling so incredibly honoured to be included as one of the first reviewers   This is the second triple hybrid IEM from Dunu (DN2k), and the third hybrid overall; the first one being the well-regarded, the legendary DN-1000 triple-hybrid (DN1k), and there’s also the mid-centric DN-900 dual-hybrid.   When I first heard about DN-2000, @rockywu boasted that this will be an improvement over the DN1k, and overall will be a better sounding unit. I was rather sceptical to be perfectly honest as I was not sure how to improve something that is...

great for rock music, mids, treble and a nice punch....varies pending on recording quality

Posted

Pros: makes rock music come alive-- great bass, isolation, and a nice short attack of punch

Cons: could use more of a wider soundstage...

I just got these bad boys yesterday- so far am really happy-- the mids and trebles really are great. these sound way better than the triple fi 10, shure 535s i used to have, and the westone (um3x i think) that i had.. these give a lot of unique feeling to each album i've listened too- and made it feel like i was listening to each album again for the first time. the isolation is so good that i don't have to turn the volume loud up at all when listening.i haven't been to active with these yet, and i worry about fit, but haven't put on the over the ear holders. presentation of the box was really nice; but i wish the metal case was smaller-- who can fit that in their pockets when out and...

Dunu DN-2000 ( So Close )

Posted

Pros: Clarity, Transparency, Surprisingly detailed bass

Cons: Treble which lacks extension

As there already four reviews I shall keep this one short and sweet.   Initial impressions: Holy cow! Accessories galore, beautiful balanced sound and more accessories.   The sound has grown on me over the months and actually changed my sound preferences. Overall these are what I would call neutral but not necessarily natural. The flavor consists of dry, clean, transparency with a bite of lemon.   Treble: In a nutshell basically the treble is very detailed but doesn't quite have the extension to reach its ambitions. It can be very sharp at times with a bad recording and prone to sibilance with the wrong tips and spacers. I find it a little brittle and forced but...

High-End natural sounding IEM with exotic midrange.

Posted

Pros: Natural sounding, very smooth tonality, with very good detail.

Cons: A bit mid centric for my sonic preferences.

Hybrid 3 ways: 2x Balance Armature + 1x 10mm Dynamic driver http://www.dunu-topsound.com/DN-2000.html       I've let around 6 of my friends (non head-fier's) to try DN-2000, without first telling them how much it cost, or what technology behind it, simply just ask them to try it, and to see their initial honest impression. All impressions were an honest "WOW". They simply amazed by how beautiful DN-2000 sounds. DN-2000 does have that initial ‘Wow’ factor. But frankly, after using them regularly for about a month now, that wow factor does fade a little on me. I guess it is simply because the bass is a bit lacking to my liking.    'Highly refined sonic...
