Plus when you pair it with Dunu they both together create a nice timbre that sounds 'kind of' high end, well for the price. Never tried the Dunu with DX50 but I can tell you C3 / Dunu = good. Nice clear and detailed.

Now that you have the dx50 can you tell me please what better combo with dunu? dx50 or c3?
I like a lot of bass,but I want quality bass naturally and not bloated.

And I love your recommendations

To be honest I think if you have extra money there get DX50 for this application. It seems to have the upper hand in detail (slightly) and how clear the mid range sounds. It seems to have slightly better bass texture, low end extension and sounds a little more digital over C3. A little more energetic too. The Colorfly still wins for soundstage width and smoothness in the mids, and has that unique timbre.

The UI is much easier to use on DX50, makes life pretty easy choosing albums now its close to stable. I think for you friend get DX50 you will have more fun and safer choice.

What volume level do you listen with Dunu DN -1000 and DX50? I'm hovering around the 200-215 mark. (215) being the loudest I'd go.

 

Yeah I was the same, I hovered around 195-200 with DN-1000 and UM 3X, with LSX5/Merlin it was around 220

You can also try rockboxing the dx50, reports so far are that it's improving sound quality

What about the Dunu and C3 combo H20? How loud do you usually go?

Yeah low gain, around those areas on the Dunu.

 

I'm with lin.. I hover around the 155-185 (low gain) range. Anything higher and my ears start to feel the fatigue. Of course, around the 150s is only possible in a very quiet environment. And I'm typically studying and or relaxing. DX50 v1.2.8 and the DN-1000s are a very nice low-fatiguing combo.

As compensation I was listening last night rather late and could live with 175-185, that was normal. But in the day my original figures are more appropriate.

I'm usually around 215 -220 but my ears aren't young. Most times I'm out with the doggie on the road so not so quiet environs.

H20, have you had your hearing checked at all in recent years?

No I haven't, although it's reassuring to hear djvkool and AladdinSane are both listening at similar levels to myself. :)

Got my DN-1000s yesterday. Enjoying them highly, using red spacer + foam

Sound great out of my x3

After 2 months of use the clear coating is chipping off. I always put it inside the provided crush-proof case after use so I don't know how this happened.
