Energy, Intimacy, Detail, Imaging = Good.
Too Airy/Clinical = Not so good.
DN-1000 all the way for this one. They offer a little more intimacy than the H-200 while maintaining detail, energy and imaging. Additionally, the H-200 quite a bit more airy/clinical compared to the DN-1000. I feel the 1000s are a warmer H-200. The treble is also less peaky XD
If anyone is interested, I did do some measurements with the different rings that are available, was curious to see if there was too much difference between them. This essentially becomes a test of insertion depth as well (adding distance vs removing). So it'll offer information on that front.
If you hear any difference between the rings, then it most likely is related to seal which can't be tested unfortunately with a rig like this XD Overall, it does measure as a v-shape, but doesn't sound like that to my ears. That 9 kHz spike is audible though (H-200 has one too).
