Yes there has. Search my posts in this thread. Sorry, in a nutshell I stated that the M200 is much more refined and detailed than the DN-1000, but the Dunu too has a wonderful full detailed sound (actually the Dunu sound I think is a bit fuller, but the KEF wins in refinement and details). And let me make it clear that the rich sounding M200 does have a full sound. 

I wouldn't want to have to choose between the two, but if I had too I would go with the KEF M200 (especially now that I've found some tips that give me a great fit). The M200 has an airier sound too.

Cheers!

Okay, yes the DN-1000 black silicon tips will fit the M200, but you have a very small amount of space between the inner-bore of the tips and the head on the nozzle of the earphone. What you get is a very neutral sound with the M200. The bass is there, but not in the beautiful masses that it is with the stock tips. Instead, the mids really shine (especially vocals). You get deep bass when the track calls for it. Some head-fiers will love this sound with the M200. I found it okay, but I'm use to a more robust, deeper, richer bass coming out of the M200. You'll get that bass with the Comply tips. The sound is nice, but I always feel like the Complys cut something in the sound (on every earphone I've ever used the tips on). I can't quite put my finer on it, but that foam does something minute to the sound. I can't say it bothers me, but my ears notice it.

 

So I kept experimenting and finally found what is seemingly the perfect tips for me on the M200. It's the large blue silicon tips that came with the Audiofly AF56. This is a wide bore tip, and it's deeper too (more so than the DN-1000 tip. So now I'm getting that deep bass I love from the M200 (not as much as with the M200's stock tips, but more than enough). And I still hear tons of refined details from the mids and highs of the M200. The fit is perfect. I'm shaking my head back and forth and the M200 is not moving at all within my ear canals. I think my search may be over for the perfect tip for the M200.

So tempted to be the guinea pig on this since the KEF didn't disappoint at all.

It's all good. Had to give you crap. Plus the stock tips are still working fine and having some complys will be good too. Too bad I can't get the Audiofly tips without ordering the earphones. Not gonna risk $56 for a pair of tips if the earphones don't sound good.

Let's hope the gratitudes sound like $50 bucks.

Thanks ericp. In that case there's a good chance that the M200 will fit my ears fine. Might choose the KEFs over the H1 for Xmas!

BTW I do agree with you in regard to the comply tips. The most affected are guitar sounds, muffled and unnatural.

Wow 12 units gone within 2.5 hours since announcement. How many people are reading this thread at any moment!

Still, $50 is really good deal. Too bad it's for US only, my wallet's safe for one more day! :p
