Dunu DN-1000 or Ultimate Ears Super.fi 5EB , which better ?
 

I've had the 5s and the TF10s, and the Dunu is better, to my ears.

I had 5EB not yet found a replacement for the bass, would be the dn-1000?
you heard that bass 5EB, as can compare with dn-1000?

post #1294 of 1741

No, I had a 5.  Not an EB.  I'm not a basshead, so saw no reason.  The Dunu's have good bass, especially with the right tip/spacer combo.  But they aren't basshead iems by any means.  Good bass, yes.  Overwhelming, no.  Plenty of oomph and timber.  But they aren't the equivalent of the jerk in traffic behind you with his bass up so loud that your mirror shakes and you can't hear your own music, even with the window rolled up.  :L3000:

I like Overwhelming bass.

Exactly what I'm looking for. Overwhelming bass with soundstage, mid and high quality like {dn-1000} 
which EMI would that be?

Maybe you can look into T-peos H300.

If you honestly crave big bass (from any said IEM) probably an easier solution is to use an amp with bass-boost. Strong impactful bass comes from driving power and punch so the extra power along with a helping hand of bass-boosting gets the job done. Although not my favourite amp something like E11 offers two bass-boost settings or JDS C5 bass-boost is very capable as well.

post #1298 of 1741

I don't use the bass boost on my C5 but it certainly works.  Nice amp, too.

I agree, despite DN-1000's low 10ohm impedance I certainly hear benefits adding Tralucent T1 into the equation. That amp has specific timbre which sounds to my ear 'high endish' and the Dunu do a great job marrying with it. Soundstage with that amp from DX50 line out (not headphone out) is almost approaching widths of a full-size headphone. The whole kit (DX50 > T1 > DN-1000) is a really capable little sound system. Some of my other IEM's have more detail but as all rounders this combo is just overly fun to use.  I expect you'd be rather happy with DX50 > C5 > DN-1000 yourself?

Are the TF10 still getting any air time or is all about DN-1000 now?

Dunu's only.  TF10's are hanging on the wall.  But if I ever need them I've got 'em.  :normal_smile :

Anyone tried the dunu dn1000 with tiny dac Stoner Acoustics  ud110 and could tell me how the sound?

I use it with JDSlabs C5 and the UD110 brings forth more clarity. Very similar to how the DN-1000 performs straight out of the Colorfly C3 but with the linear/visceral bass end from the C5.

Very good performance overall.

post #1303 of 1741

thanks very much

with galaxy s3 It would be good?

Is there a better dac (only tiny) in price between  50\100$?

 

I want dac which give to galaxy s3+dunu dnk quality sound at least the level of the dx50 give with dunu dnk (dx50 i mean without amplifier\line out).

I haven't tried it with the S3. Better ask the people at the StonerAcoustics dedicated thread.

Better dac? No, not in that price range.

BTW, you must know that the UD100/110 is not designed to drive headphones directly. You must pair it with a decent amp to drive your headphones.
