Ah ha! But maybe I did take a picture! :wink_face: However, the heat is simply not welcome at. all.

Look what arrived before 8:30 this morning! Only reason I was awake is because the dog goes nuts when someone knocks on the door.

Alright, mine arrived a few hours ago and I've done a bit of listening. First overall impression: warm and smooth, big stage and powerful bass (no surprises there). Not sure about the detail level yet, and I definitely don't see how they're superior to the H-200, which simply have a different signature (more analytical up top with great tight bass). I'll move about between genres a bit and post more anon. Ironically, the 14 pairs of tips didn't really hit the spot for me and I'm using some Brainwavz R3 singles instead.

First impressions:

 

Low end. 

 

That is all.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ha, just kidding. 

 

The lows are great! Very TF10 esque without a distancing ring. Good texture throughout. It certainly reminds me of the H200 but the soundstage is much improved. I'll keep tip/ring rolling before posting impressions about the mids and top end. I'm a little disappointed with the cable as it seems quite flimsy given the quality of what its attached to. Overall though, I'm already convinced that the 1k will be an excellent complement to my BA200s as they have very contrasting signatures.

I just ordered the Nexus 5 32gb. Can this IEM be a good pair for that source? I don't really want to use external amps unless the SQ difference is >100%.

Congratulations meng! I'm really interested to know how you compare both. I still can't part with any of them as I find both to complement each other very well.

Give the cable some time.  It is pretty tough, very tangle free, and (for me) no microphonics.  The cable tie is fantastic.  I actually wish my SE535 cable was the same as this one.  I love it.

Alright, time for further impressions.

 

From the ground up...

 

Lows:

Handsome. Meaty bass when called for but so far I've yet to hear it bleed into the mids. I appreciate the sub-bass extension even though it's not super deep. For the types of music I enjoy, the bass is just great. Always present but never overpowering. Great blend of hearing and feeling the lows.

 

Mids: 

Nice and full. Definitely not mid-centric but certainly not recessed. Vocals and guitars are very clear and present. My favorite kind of mids: those that don't force themselves into the picture, but you never have to go looking for them. 

 

Highs:

Like baby bear's bed: just right. Better detail and clarity than my old TF10s. A refreshing amount of air and space in the treble region - much improved over the H200. Nice extension and medium sparkle. Never sibilant or overbearing. 

 

Soundstage/Imaging:

Excellent. Best I've heard out of an IEM. Not overly large space, but plenty to get out of my head. Always easy to pinpoint instruments left to right and back to front. 

post #474 of 2490

Gotta say, while I'm enjoying these, I'm not quite feeling the hype. But they're very comfortable after finding the right ring-tip combination.

post #475 of 2490

Anyone that has them can you tell me how they feel worn straight down? I have medium sized ear canals and I can't wear earphones over the ear since my glasses just get in the way.

post #476 of 2490

Anyone having issues like the tips being stuck in your ears due to the nonexistent nozzle lips?

Yep

 

From my review:

Anyway - nice idea - but leads to the one design issue I have with the DN-1000.  By allowing for the change of rings, they can't acccomodate a lip on the nozzle.  Because of this - anyone trying for a really good seal / deep insertion with some of the tips may very well find themselves removing the DN-1000 from your ears, and finding the tips still in your ears.  This doesn't happen for me with the comply foams (they stick on the DN-1000 pretty well), but I found that with the dual flanges, I often had to go fishing (in my ears) for the missing tips.  Didn't happen often - but enough to be annoying.  If I was to have my choice between tip stability and tweakability with the rings, the rings would be discarded.  Others may have different ideas.

 

Try the complys.  I did mention this to Rocky - and I think he was going to take it on board for any future designs.

They feel fine to me, not heavy at all and no vacuum problem.

I don't because the fit is quite shallow.

I suppose the fit depends on what kind of tips and spacers are used right?

post #480 of 2490

Sure, there's a degree of variation, but none of the combinations really give me a deep fit. It's the housing shape and length.
