You're my last stance Masa' WAYNE

If you fall i fall. tongue_smile.gif

Don't worry Sf, I'm staying strong here as well. As a matter of fact, I did order the pistons but cancelled and ordered the B3 instead... As tempting as $20 can be, I got your back mate!

Yeah, you do that. It seems like nothing - 20 bucks here, 30 there but in the end you'll have spent the money for that Noble 4.

$800 for the Noble 4?? That's as bad as when I spend $600 for the UE 7 Pro and the $660 I paid for the Sennheiser IE800. Neither was worth the money IMHO, so both got sold off. The Piston are worth their weight in 2.0 Gold, and the DUNU DN-1000 are for real, and only $200. I'm pretty sure the B3 will be worth their price and some? Feel the THUNDER for the IEM's $200 and UNDER!!!

I don't listen to Kpop, but I really enjoyed listening to the samples you sent, and to be honest, I really liked that Girl's Day - Female President song and the sub bass really was fun and deep, and the details were just crystal clear! Plus I've never seen so many ridiculously HOT Korean chicks all in one place ever lol The DUNU DN-1000 is FOR REAL!!

I did try and pick songs that would be bearable, on the eyes as well as the ears :D

 

These DN-1000s sound like the real deal indeed!

I'm talking about the universal version, which is $450 and totally worth its price. And I only mentioned it coz I remember d marc0 said he's saving for the Noble 4.

^ LMAO thanks for the back up. Yeah i am sure the hype on these Pistons are warranted but don't really need them and is just curious is all. Plus i seem to have comfort issues with bullet shaped iem as those nuforces showed me. 

 

Makes me sad that ALL the Dunus has that bullet shape housing. haha Welp not really cuz it's good on the wallet. : P

Yeppp good point but i wouldn't go THAT far. LoL

 

D'YAM those Noble 4s are $800???

 

Not ideal they cost that much.

 

Congrats on them btw.

:beerchug:

drbluenewmexico I didn't forget about you. I just got home. IEM I guess you've answered your own question regarding comparing Pistons with DN1000. Different level the Dunus are. So, just as I started loving the BA200 again someone has bought my pair. That person is in for a treat. Now to burn those Doppios in.

Very true mate. Nowadays I make it a point there's a strong reason for purchasing an iem as my funds are limited.

Problem is, massa' Wayne brought something to my attention: http://www.head-fi.org/t/696804/nuforce-primo-8-an-audiophile-phase-coherent-quad-balanced-armature-driver-iem-impressions

So now I'm thinking about waiting for more impressions on the Primo 8 before I pull the trigger.

As a wise man once said - it comes a time when one has to stop getting on every hype train even if it's full of happy passengers and save some money for the plane, which while costlier, can get one faster to that destination that all are trying to reach.

 

I other words, yeah, there are a lot of great sub-$100 iems and the Pistons are probably one of them. Yeah, there are a lot of very expensive iems that while great for some people can be awful to others and diminishing returns can hit hard. But once you get that higher-end iem that sounds like what you were looking for, it shows you that those cheapos have a long road ahead of them to get to that level even though they are advancing fast.

Well, I guess there is always something new - I took quite the leap of faith with these Noble 4 universals only based on joker's review of the 4S coz even though they have the exact same internals and cable, the housings can affect the sound too and a silicone ciem will always have better isolation and fit and seal. Luckily the Noble 4 sounds great too.

Well said Kova4a.
post #19407 of 32875
Reading about the Nuforce Primo 8 just about gave me a Viagra moment. I know the 770x is a darn good value for an el cheapo, so I can only fathom to imagine what the sound coming from these quad driver superstars sounds like? The list price of $499? *sigh*

Great to know! Thanks mate!

The DUNU DN-1000 will be great for a good while. They are very high class audio, miles above all my dynamics, and above my UE 700 because of the bass, and above the OM Audio because of refinement in the treble area. Now the X3 is starting to feel like a DAP I'm going to sell. Nothing ses to sound right in the lows with the X3. I might sell and get a Sony?

No problem. Just read the Primo 8 impressions and most likely I also would have been interested in it if it wasn't for the Noble 4. It's just already what I was looking for. Now, just because I like how the N4 sounds that doesn't mean that I automatically assume that Nuforce can't pull off some magical stuff like Wizard has.
