Hmm okay, I'm interested how they will fit into my ears as I'm really used to a fairly deep fit. My comfiest ever IEMs were the Yamaha EPH-100s which are deep insertion IEMs.

I use large tips with shallow insertion...

Lifted Andreas, If you use the longer (red) spacers, you can get a fairly deep insertion, but I find a shallower insertion more comfortable, due to the weight I suppose. I have never had any issues with the tips coming off, even with deep insertion. I have heard of some users using a combination of spacers for an even deeper fit, though I have not tried it. You can use some triple flanges to lengthen the nozzle a bit.

Got mine today.  I did a very quick sampling of the different tips.  Found the large dual-flange sounded and fit best for me.  After a few seconds, it's obvious the bass is huge compared to my HiFiman RE-0's.  I can tell the DN-1000's are going to be fun to listen to.  Should be a great compliment to the HE-0's, if not replace them entirely.  I'll have to listen a lot more to make any conclusive observations.    

 

I'm really curious to hear how the DN-1000's handle poor recordings.  The RE-0's really expose them.  I'm hoping the DN-1000's will be a little more forgiving.

 

Question:  Are the spacers even necessary with the dual-flange or other silicon tips?

TexasBuck, They may not be necessary for fit, but they do give you some options tonally. The thickest spacers (red) tighten up the bass a bit and open up the treble and soundstage somewhat. Using no spacers offers fatter bass and more relaxed treble. Deeper insertion also augments bass. The differences aren't huge, but they are noticeable. Also, tips with a smaller bore tend to accentuate the bass and treble a bit (recessed mids). I prefer medium silicon tips with a big bore and I use the thinnest spacers (silver). The DN1000's do seem to tell it like it is with poor recordings or low quality MP3's. They don't gloss over sibilance in the recording and will expose low bit-rate mp3's. Hope you enjoy the DUNU's!

I've posted the pictures on the appropriate threads, but figured I'd drop a line here as well. The DN1K coming out of my Rockboxed Sansa Clip+ is sublime fellas. Best bass texture I've ever heard and excellent presentations throughout the mids and treble. If you've got one and haven't tried it, get on it!

Because of the 10ohm impedance on DN-1000 there's a decent amount of low end roll-off with Colorfly C3, lower the impedance more roll-off you'll have from the source if it doesn't measure flat. That's why when you listen with your Clip+ you get their true (or closer) frequency response, the bass kicks in due to the Clips famously flat measurements. I noticed the difference straight away, but the mid range isn't as detailed to my ears and the Dunu is capable of a lot more than a Clip offers. It's a decent pairing only I feel the Dunu scale up well with better sources. In the end I enjoy how they sound from C3 as it takes the bass down to near neutral, mid range and clarity can really push through without any clouding. For on the go / outdoors the Clip is a good contender. My Rocco BA suffers more roll-off than C3 but has superior detail and separation to both the other sources mentioned above.

At the moment mine stay paired with my Sony Walkman which has exceeded my expectations, even when I could use either of my Studio V's.

That NWZ-F806 sounds mighty fine.

recently broke my GR07, going replace it, either bought the vsonic again, or try this one, anybody has listen to both of these IEMs? Wanted your opinion especially on the soundstage and the details. thanks :P

GR07 gets a tiny edge on detail. Dunu is still excellent, but the treble rolls off a little sooner than the GR07 which results in better detail up top from the VSonic. 

 

Too me the soundstage presentations aren't comparable. If memory serves, the GR07 had an excellent width to the stage but not a lot of depth, whereas the DN1K has a medium amount of both. 

 

If you're after something more neutral, I'd say go with the GR07, if you're after something that can be VERY fun and can do neutral pretty well, give the DN1K a go.

I'm curious about these, but I've got mixed feelings on dynamic IEMs.  They don't isolate as well as their soundstage advantage over BA IEMs is due to their vented design.

I just got a Clip+ for my DN-1000. It sounds OK, and I still feel like my laptop gives a much better/warmer sound. I am thinking of getting a X3 as I read about its warm sig. However, I am really interested in the X1(mostly for its outlook) but I don't really wanna wait another year. What do you guys think?

Use the Clip+ for a year and get X1 next year, get a X3, or get a cheaper DAP like the C3 and replace it with X1 when its released?

Well if budget is not issue you are good to go with x3. Both x3 and dn 1k are a good sounding pair.plus theres a free offer of bwavz earphone with x3 from mp4 and also free 2 day fedex......check it out and buy it if you like them and before its gone.
