lol, i pretty much ordered these based on your rankings in your sig. Have you mentioned any impressions vs the W4, which would have been what I bought.  The w4 has been one of my favorites for a while.

Cool! I'm holding out for that Space version! Although I'm sure the when I order it, there will then be confusion about whether it's really the Space version or the rumoured Intergalactic Hyper-Space version!

The biggest difference is that this an audiophile-basshead  earphone as compared to the W4. Oh, you can get a balanced sound out of it with the rings, but the bass is there and let's you know it. The DN-1K has a fuller and 3-D sound compared to the W4, and the Westone has quite a bit more mid-bass. The W4 probably has a better fit though, and is lighter than then DN-1K. More treble extension too in the DN-1k. In the end it's about your sound preference. I prefer the DN-1K.

 

 

Whatever version I have sounds very good (as you see I've already ranked it). And it amps very well.

UPDATE: Ranking various tips in terms of sound quality ONLY.

 

1. Dunu translucent black stock tips

2. Meelec M9 Bi-Flanges

3. Dunu bi-flanges stock tips

4. Stock "comply"/foam tips

NOTE: The DN-1000 pairs very well with wide bore tips. Tips with narrow bores result into a peak (sibilance) around 6.5 Khz.

+1 on amping. JDSlabs C5 pairs really well with the DN-1000. 

 

As for people concerned about the DN-1000 being too bassy... It's definitely above the H200 in bass quantity but the gap isn't that much if you configure the DN-1000 to sound less bassy (ex. Bi-flange tips + Red rings + shallow insertion).

It's a good notch and half above the H-200 to my ears d marc0 in overall sound. There's is so much punch, power, and detail coming out of this earphone, and especially with it amped (the fiio E10 right now). 

 

Now, I'm using the black silicon but with the silver then the blue rings. So I have a much more balanced sound, but still powerful sub-bass. This has, however, pushed the vocals forward in an amazing way. And the highs are emitting remarkable micro details.  Lovely earphone, and again one that punch above its going MSRP.

DN-1000 also sounds overwhelming with live music!

 

It can make your hair stand as well!

That's it. The DN-1k give many studio tracks a live sound and feeling.

post #114 of 2481

Forgot to mention that fantastic wide soundstage that really beats the H-200 - significantly. 

post #115 of 2481

How would you compare the Dunu to the CKS1000? Powerful bass and soundstage bring them to mind.

Not sure where to post this...

What is the top one? And how many version will Dunu release after they release the initial versions? lol

I cannot get mad at Dunu, however, over the sound of the DN-1000.

I think the top one could be that dual-BA IEM Rocky was talking about earlier...which I will definitely buy when it is released...

Yeah, That 900 looks to be a large and small armature set-up and not the TWFK. Might be the best looking DUNU, IMO, as far as housings go. An intriguing model there. Look forward to the impressions on that one.
