Dunu DN-1000 - Dunu's hybrid IEM - Impressions thread - Page 84

Rather than play with eq, try using the spacers included with the Dunu.  The skinnier they are, the more bass.  As they get thicker, less bass.  Also try a variety of type.  I'm using the Comply's, but your milage may vary.

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....


Colorfly C3 will do that delicate music nicely. ;)

That's the problem with this place, doesn't matter which piece of gear you eventually purchase because the other options will continue eating away at you inside. Curiosty in this place is insanely overwhelming.

Straight from headphone out on both C3 and DX50, which player do you think takes the crown? :)

*puts olddude on the spot* :D

Apples and oranges, but so far I like the DX50.  And the UI is soooo much better, as are the physical controls.  For my use, walking, I like the DX50.  Remember that I changed out the player and the iems at the same time. The C3 is wonderful, but I lean towards the DX50.  With my C5 amp, it's no contest.  DX50 all the way.  Using the spacers and tips to fine tune the Dunus, they certainly are proving more enjoyable than were the TF10's.

Yar, TF10 are good, but I'm glad you went for Dunu. While I find  TF10 really really enjoyable, they're becoming a little dated now, technology has moved forward, DN-1000 is a pure example of that, as you can hear the Dunu just sound much clearer, like someone opened a door and allowed more light inside the window. They get praise for good reason. 

I agree DX50 is much easier to use, changing tracks with those tactile buttons would make life much easier for you. I will however keep the C3 around, it's just one of thos items I won't sell being a semi collector of DAP's. I use my DX50 for full-size headphones as I find it a little aggressive with some IEM.

I just a/b'd The Beatles "Here Comes The Sun" on both.  MUCH more timber from the DX50.  The upper freq. stuff is very clear on the C3, but the bass is just bass.  It's not all the way across all of the music.  On the DX50, the upper freq is very "there," but the lower stuff is also there as well, not just in the bass guitar and the bass drums.  It's thicker.  The bass sound is in the width of the soundstage, if that makes sense.  This is with Comply's and Green spacers.  I may go back to the silvers.  :)

 

I, too, love the TF10's, and also agree that they have been around for a long time and may have become a bit dated.  They are very enjoyable, but sound a bit thinner than the Dunu's.  

 

Edit-  This is from Headphone Out on both.  When I use the C5 amp, the DX50 really pulls away from the C3.

Hi H20Fidelity,

 

Can you help me decide.. Im planning to buy my first dedicated DAP, been using xperia ray since 2011 when i started audiiophile world. Already used sansa clip+ but i gave it right away to my brother because i dont like user exp. Well now i decide to uprade my player and im torn between the two option. First DX50 for $180 (2nd hand, my friend is selling his player me just only a month old, he decide to upgrade to ak120) and the newly release X5. My IEM collection is mh1c, vsd1, gr07, dunu1000 and planning to buy dunu2000 before june....

 

Please need advice what do you think worth to buy the nice price dx50 or just go straight to X5 (ill just close my eyes and my mind when paying for this dap), i listen all music, i like all around... What do you think best combo out of the two player?...

From a price to performance ratio (especially at the price you can get DX50) I would say iBasso would be a better option, as you can see above the two members who took my recommendation on DX50 for their DN-1000 are rather happy with the outcome. If money isn't a problem and you want a slightly smoother less fatiguing  more open sound, then X5 is worth considering. Personally while I think X5 is a good player I've decided not to buy one, purely from a preference stance. It's a tough choice you're facing between the two players. Keep in mind iBasso are launching DX90  in just a few more days to my understanding. 

I guess if I was in your situation, I would of course try the cheaper option first, it's local from your friend, you can test DX50 first, then if  not for you move onto looking at X5.

Hello :) How much bass do we get from the couple: x5 and Dunu DN-1000? I just got my X5 and it's making my Audeo phonaks PFE 112 sound rather flat and lifeless..I mean, they are pretty analytical IEMs to me and even with black filters they are without bass. I'm no basshead but i'll appreciate a good amount of it! Thanks :)

Is the fx850 on a complete different level then the DN-1000? I know its like 2 times the price, can you elaborate on how is it better in every aspect? I am convinced that the bass is certainly better but I want to know how is it compared to the DNK other than the bass. I have had the DNK for a while and I love it but you know you always want to upgrade when your on Head-fi ...I was considering the DN-2000 but read that they have lessen the bass, so I am really interested in the fx850. (plus the wood housing just looks amazing..)

 

Thanks in advance.

Rather hard to give a bass quantity percentage when an individuals preference vary so much.

I'll say it was an average amount of bass, X5 does measure flat and has low output impedance, it should give you the true frequency response of DN-1000.

Maybe you can pump up the low end and put X5's EQ to good use.

Thanks so much fro your reply! What do you think i should get for the X5? I listen to mainly Rock (Muse, Beatles, Pink Floyd..) and Jazz (Pat Metheny, EST), i just need some good bass (not too much), good mids and clear trebles :) Thanks again!

post #1259 of 1590

I would wait and see how much better the DN-2000 is first. 

post #1260 of 1590
Good move, I'm also waiting for the DN-2000's review before making a decision
