Can you share some info why did you selected dx50 over x5? the hottest dap in this community recently.

I, too, just got (today) both a DX50 and a Dunu 1000 in the mail (happy day), and am very pleased with both.  They replace a Colorfly C3 and UE TF10's.  Using my JDS Labs C5 amp with them, sounds good, though I am still dialing in the iems with spacers (using Comply's, as I have been for years).  More bass and mids, voices more forward, soundstage certainly different but enjoyable.  I've only ever used UE iems, going from 5's to 700's to TF10's.  The Dunu's are certainly different, in a pleasant way.  

 

As to why the DX50, several people in the forums whom I trust suggested and/or use it.  I got the C3 for the same reason, and was very happy with it.  Wanted to move up a bit, so I've been reading up here and asking some questions (thanks, guys!).  Granted, the early firmware versions seemed really hinkey, but the most current one seems very stable and certainly sounds good (to my ears).  The price was right, I paid $239.99 to an Amazon dealer (ProStudio Sound & Music.) and got it in two days w/free shipping, fully charged and with the current firmware.  Setup was simple, I loaded in a mini card and turned it on.  Fiddled with settings for a moment, and was listening to music.

i use a red spacer for my right ear, blue for the left, with complys.  Colors are very visible - makes it easy to get them in the proper ear.  i don't think the spacers make any difference in sound..

Personally I use red spacers and clear silicon fin tips, the ones with reinforcement inside them. (large) Be sure to try DN-1000 with your C3 alone some time, I find theirs a unique timbre and impressive soundstage.

Because it is much cheaper than x5 and I heard the fiio have sound signature that not all people connect to.also I do not know how the combo of x5 and dunu.



Olddude? you like the dunu + dx50 also without amp or dac?

Spacers are different widths, and when I use different ones I can see that the tip is farther forward or back.  Also, I can hear a sound difference.  Oh, and I use the "L" and "R" to figure out which is which.  :o2smile:

Underneath the left housing there's a little 'lib' on the strain relief you can feel with your finger. 

You should be using the same spacers....... (both sides) Otherwise you risk walking lopsided to the music. :tongue_smile:

Just wanted to follow up on the below.

 

I ordered a multi-pack of Comply T-400s (was using small Comply T-500s on my other sets to date) and funny thing is...I've gone from a small tip with my other headphones to a Large tip to get the right seal on my left ear, and a medium to get the right seal on my right ear.

 

I've also found that tighter Comply's produce more impact when the spacers are taken off with these tips, counter to what I assumed.

 

So now they're much more in line with what I was hoping to get when I bought them.  Going to need a few more days to make a sound conclusion, but I'm in a much better place with these now.

The DNKs (using red spacers and comply tips) have amazing separation and very crisp highs (dancing on the sibilant line), and the bass quality is great. Even the mid-bass impact is great. What's lacking for me is the impact of the sub-bass. I've seen these referred to as an amazing set of V-shaped IEMs and I'd say that their V-shape is much more subtle on the bass end of the spectrum, at least in terms of impact.

Ultimately these end up making my instrumented music sound very good. The bass is distinct from the guitars, each drum hit clearly distinguishable, the guitars sounding beautifully bright. Everything feels like a perfect balance here.

Problem is that my tastes these days put me firmly in the EDM, Party, Dance music genres where that bass impact is very important to fuel the energy of the song. Where there is mid-bass driven songs, the DNKs do wonderfully. You can feel it and the bass response feels fast enough to keep up with even my fastest songs. When sub-bass is leaned on for the backbone of a song, the DNKs sadly (for me) don't bring enough to the table.

I still like these, I actually find their simplicity quite pleasing visually. I find the isolation is good enough for my daily train ride.

Unfortunately for me at least, I'm now in the hard position of what to do. I got the DNKs to replace my Miles Davis Trumpets that accidentally got run through the washing machine. They actually still sound the same to me, but I'm convinced that there's no way I ran them through a washing/drying cycle and some kind of damage wasn't done. I'm not about to try and return these as they were purchased through ebay and shipped from Korea.

I like them, but don't love them. If I could get that sub-bass impact I'm looking for, I'd be a happy camper.

Songs used to test:

Sub Bass: Childish Gambino - Sunrise
Bass Response: Quartus Saul - Los Angeles (Time Ismag Remix)
Mid Bass: Iggy Azalea - Fancy
Extremes (High and Low): Hadkouken! - Declaration of War (Hadouken vs. Kissy Sellout Remix)
Separation: Shiny Toy Guns - Rainy Monday

I

 

I meant that when I use two MATCHED width spacers, not as the previous poster said using two different widths at the same time.  I've been changing pairs, just went from greens to silvers.  

 

You really think I want to walk lopsided?

I always walk lopsided.  Doesn't everyone?

Took my new setup out for a spin.  Using the Red spacers it seems to lessen bass.  Sounds good, but slightly thinner than using the Greens.  So I've gone back to the Greens.  Silvers and no spacers seem to increase bass.  I live in the higher frequencies so don't want too much bass.  And I've noticed no sibilance in higher frequencies, which is a good thing.  

 

Soundstage using the Dunus seems nice and wide, separation is good, vocals are nice and prominent.  I can hear individual instruments just fine.  Soundstage is not as high (top to bottom as opposed to left to right) as with the same amp using the C3 and TF10's.  I'll need more listening to figure out just what is going on, but so far like what I'm hearing.

After receiving the DX50 I want to say that this very amazing combo with dunu dn1000 especially to electronic music
now I feel the music is thick naturally And amazing soundstage compared to s3 .
Now I understand how the bass more fully and better compared to se215.

i Testing yet for delicate music,Yet not what I like,i work at it with equalizer...
But all the other style of music sounds amazing....
