The Dunu treble is only sibilant when the recording has sibilance at higher volumes.

Agreed

You guy's really should be checking out the Stoner Acoustics UD110 DAC for your Dunu. I'm running them at the moment from the little USB DAC into Tralucent T1 amp with mighty impressive results. You can check it out in the link below.

+1 about the sibilance, I don't hear it personally.

Do I need to burn these in a bit more? This is the only dealbreaker as I still have time to return them for a full refund.

 

It's probably in the recording. 

My DN1000s show a hint of sibilance if I listen to a track which I know is sibilant.

3X is more energetic and has more sparkle, though the downside is that slight spike in lower treble/upper mids, despite that, it's not the fatiguing sparkle if you know what I mean

 

The mids are about as good as each other IMHO, DN-1000 is smoother and fuller, whereas 3X is more forward, and in a way similar mids to the R-50, so depends on signature preference.

 

The bass is also about as good as each other, DN-1000 has bigger impact and fuller, 3X's has somewhat less impact, though more refined and quicker, so yeah again, depends on signature preference of the listener, it's pretty much quantity vs quality

 

Soundstage, DN-1000 is bigger and 3D, 3X's is wide, but vocal is pretty much in the head

 

Transparency, detail, imaging, and separation, 3X has the upper hand...rightly so as they cost double the DN-1000's

 

You'll see what I mean in about a week and a half mate...:wink_face:

Yeah, I was expecting them to be somewhat better as the price suggests. 

 

Can't wait to hear them! :)

Try playing the same tracks on different source(s) and see. Looks like you just purchased it as you have ample time to return them? If so how long it'd been into burnin process? Looks like it still needs some serious burnin.

Pretty sure the BAs don't burn in.

The sibilance was indeed part of the recording. Tested it with a few of my IEMS (XBA-40s, HF5s)

 

*Any burn-in changes with the dynamic driver?

 

Currently my rig consists of an film-cap modded Ipod 5g(Rockbox), and a JDS Labs C5 amp. The only other DAP i've tried was the Sansa Clip Zip and while the sound is great, the soundstage is severely compressed. Would it be worth it to get a better DAP/AMP or this is as good as it gets? (And yep, it is very good :L3000:)

I'm so jelly of everyone who has a pair of these. All this time I'm spending saving up to get them is agonising.

I can't imagine that it gets a ton better without spending big time coin. The 1000s aren't very power hungry after all so amping isn't going to impact hem as noticeably as something like an ER4.

I thoroughly enjoy mine with my ipod 5.5 and Fiio E17.

Has anybody compared these to the AKG K3003?  I'm sure that's been asked before and probably done but couldn't find anything through search.
