Have no idea at the moment what to expect.

Just got news from DUNU that the international version of the DN-1000 is about ready to hit the market. It has been slightly retuned from the original Chinese version so the two are not totally identical sounding.

Hmmm? I wonder what version I'm getting? It should be here today.

Were they more specific in how the tuning may differ from each other?

All of those found on eBay, which are from the Chinese market, belongs to the 'group buy' batch when the DN-1000 was first released in China and offered as a group buy for gathering feedback (for which they have made the final tuning with). It seems many took the offer to order but instead resell it on eBay / Taobao for profit. The international version, which should be the final version, is just launched, so there is a good chance you are getting the Chinese group buy version.

No specific, but I believe they have made it a little less sharp /  bright then the original. It is kind of vague on the message I received so take this with a grain of salt.

Hmm? Well I bought mine from ebay, but through the Dunu website. It listed the ebay merchant I bought it from as Dunu's official distributor. It also took about two and half weeks for it to get here from the day that I ordered it. Oh well, regardless, we'll see how it performs.

Well did manage to get the DN-1000 in my ears for a few second. Definitely more bass than the H-200, but doesn't sound as airy (but no burn-in so don't assume my thoughts will stay that way). The sound signature is fuller and more forward than the H-200. I can't get my head around the sound quite yet, but not bad out of the box. I need to try these sound rings that came with it to see how that shapes the sound (right now I have no rings on it).

Okay, three sets of rings (red, blue, and silver). The red is the thickest (giving the greatest distance between the tips and nozzle grill), then blue, and finally the silver being the thinnest. No ring = huge bass lack of airiness. I went directly to the red rings. Cuts down on bass but it's still powerful. A more neutral sound and airier sound (kind of reminding me of the H-200 but fuller sounding). I like this! I will check out the blue and silver when I get home. I read in one review that one of these rings gives it a K3003 sound, but I have to find that review and figure out which color ring. I would say with the red ring the bass is around S2 level (maybe a little more bass, but not as bassy as the MA750i, but stopping just short of the M200's bass). And I definitely don't hear that awful spike in the highs that irritated me with the otherwise superb H-200.

Just ordered! :bigsmile_face:

I requested for one of the latest batch they have.

Fingers-crossed I get one of the international version.

These sound interesting, but will wait for the latest version to appear before biting. Thanks for the info.

I think mine is the Chinese version - all Chinese writing on the box and information sheet inside
