No one will know until Dunu sends us some samples :P

I just had a quick session with DN-1000, listening to Cosmic Gate's Wake Your Mind, feels like I am in the middle of the dance floor, hope that answers your question :wink_face:

 

 

Whoa, you are disappointed with AX-60?

 

That sounds like good news to me, thanks! xD

So I now have over 50 hrs of burn in on these along with many hours of pleasurable listening despite some fit issues with my small ear canals.  I can say that that if your recording has some sibilance (ssssssss) on the vocals that the DNK will not mask it, it will be present.  This is using the red spacers and the smallest RE-400 silicon tips.  Unfortunately because of my fit issues it's very difficult to find alternate tips, even the smallest supplied comply or silicon tips are painful, does anyone have any suggestions. Anything larger than VERY thin material will most likely be too painful, any suggestions?

true......wide bore tips are better than any tips imo for better clarity, spacious etc.

Yeah I'd choose wider bore as well, unless you want to add bass and congest the sound in which case you'd use smaller bore tips.

Thanks, looks like I have some experimenting to do,

Alright you guys convinced me. Pulled the trigger on the DN1000 from MP4nation. Priority shipping plus the 10% coupon means they should be here before 2014 for $190. Not bad.

So how heavy are these exactly when wearing them straight down? Was looking at these as a potential upgrade from my Carbo Bassos. For what it's worth I use the standard medium sized silicone tips.

Heavy enough, at least for me. wearing them up helps a lot, but still their weight is felt

Yeah, it's just a bit fiddly for me to wear IEMs by running the cable around the ear because of my glasses. I desperately want to upgrade from my Carbo Bassos but the IEMs I look at always have issues with comfort / fit / weight.

I ordered some of these mate as an upgrade to my Tenores. Probably won't get them till next week sometime.

They are indeed heavier than most IEMs... I personally wear a clip to relieve those ear pieces from the weight of the cable and it works wonders for me.

I hope you'll find a solution that'll work for you because the DN-1000 is such an amazing IEM. Fortunately for me, I don't use them when I'm mobile.

I still stick with my good old MH1 for mobile use; the j-cord is perfect for such scenario.
