yea the design is somewhat intimidating, but who cares if it works. the r1 were nice but not mind blowing like these hopefully are. the cks1000 for example are very impressive, they manage to have a great 3d effect with just one driver. highs are still harsh compared to the fx700, which have a similar sound. fx700 tend to have more midbass and not as forward a presentation.

 

danny, how many hours do you propose for the cks1000 sweet spot?

Nice! Mine should be arriving any day now :cool:

Thanks again.

No problem!

Day 5 with the DN-1000

Bass seems to have tightened up. Since it’s hard to distinguish the changes with burn-in when listening to the earphones alone, I often compare them as time progresses with other references. It is then that I realize just how resolving these earphones can be.

Today I got a chance to listen to the Klipsch X11, the successor to my past love, the X10: They didn’t leave a good impression. The treble lacked air, the mids had sub-par resolution, and the bass was warm. It’s your fault, DN-1000.

If a blind test were conducted between the X11 and DN-1000, and the price were around the same for both, 8 or 9 participants out of 10 would likely choose the Dunu.
The DN-1000 just makes other earphones sound too warm.

Yesterday’s demo of Sony’s XBA-H3 left a lasting impression [Translator’s note: where he referred to the H3 as a “bass machine”], but the DN-1000s equipped with the SuperDarts tips seem to dig just as deep.
Today I also listened to the K3003 and again noticed how similar the mids are to the Dunus. It’s as if the DN-1000s are trying to imitate the AKGs in this region. But the larger dynamic drivers contribute to other sound differences, including that deep bass.

Also worthy of note is how the quality of the source material affects the sound. Sony earphones aren’t too picky, but that’s not the case with the DN-1000. This is especially the case with female vocals, where certain recordings can bring out the BA-ness. [Translator’s note: I think he’s referring to the brittleness in the lower treble that comes out in some (badly tuned) BAs, but I’m not entirely sure. I just translated what he said almost literally (which is more along the lines of ‘BA stench’).]



As you can see in the frequency response graph I uploaded, I’m thinking that what I’m hearing correlates to that peak at around 7kHz. The graph also shows how the response changes with the different tuning rings. The 3 types of rings have different thicknesses; the thicker the ring the further the ear tip sits from the housing, allowing for deeper insertion. The deepest insertion brings out the most bass and a peak at 20kHz. The SuperDarts tips have a long tube, so the affect on sound is similar to what the red tuning ring provides.

The white tips, as explained above, are very soft, providing a delicate fit in the ear. They’re useful when you want to thin out the bass region a bit.

The only negative point is that the deepest bass is just a touch too slow. It goes deep, but there are times I’d like more impact at the beginning of each note.

But the cost-to-performance ratio is excellent! These are brilliant with male vocals and orchestral music, but female vocals are recording-dependent.

That’s all for today folks.

In my experience, Tenso service and shipping fees come out to about $15-20, so even with that tacked on, it's still quite a bit cheaper than buying from a reseller on eBay ($138 at the time of this posting).

 

At the moment, they say that it will ship "within 1 to 3 months", but I've found that their estimates aren't very accurate and oftentimes they'll get stock in much sooner. YMMV, of course.

 

EDIT: The white/gold version is currently in stock for ¥ 8,955 (around $89 USD) if you don't want to wait or want that color scheme instead.

 

Amazon Japan and Tenso have been working flawlessly for myself and others for a long time, so nobody should worry about using them. And that sure is a great price!

Does anyone have a FR graph of the m200?

post #14076 of 32896

Man that DUNU sounds almost too interesting not to try.  I really want those Sony's though.

DX50 delivery tomorrow. : p

 

Can't wait to read your thoughts on the DX50, DannyBai.

Is that one ebay store the only place to buy the Dunu DN-1K

That's the only one I've seen so far after doing some searches.  I wish the price was just a bit cheaper.  I wonder if it sounds any better than the H200's.  I have my doubts but still very curious because of the tuning feature and I've liked some of the previous DUNU products.

Yeah, the packaging doesn't seem to make it clear if it is one or dual BAs working with the dynamic driver.

The DUNU page says 10mm dynamic and balanced armature.  I think it's one and one.  Seems to make sense at that price.
