Dunu DN-1000 - Dunu's hybrid IEM - Impressions thread - Page 55

post #811 of 1472

You guys weren't kidding about the tips. I went through all the stockies and couldn't really find anything quite satisfying. Just dug out my old unknown Shure single flanges from my RE0 days and immediately found a smile across my face. 1 hour and counting from BNIB..

 

Edit: On second thought, I'm wearing the DN-1000s over-ear now and I'm on red rings with the stock clear black spiral tips. Very nice!! Still not sure if these will be tame enough in the treble for me though.

More comparing with the GR99, it's pretty insane the difference, It's like with the GR99s you're looking out of a window smeared in vaseline and with a diffuser film on it, you can make out general shapes and colors, then going to the DN-1000 it's like the entire window has been removed, not just the vaseline but the diffuser and the glass, all gone. Seriously impressed, however I would hope that would be the case comparing a >$200 IEM with a $35 IEM.

treal512, try the silver (thinnest) spacers and definitely try out all the tips you can get your hands on. Leaving out the spacers completely yields the smoothest treble, but the bass gets a little loose for my taste. The widest bore tips seem to have the most open and smooth treble to my ears. Shallow insertion helps as well. Many have had good luck with the foam tips to tame the highs a bit. You also might want to try dMarco's trick of putting the foam pad from some ear buds over the nozzle before installing the tips. Don't give up on them, once you find the sweet spot, they are amazing!

 

Good luck!

If you are sensitive on the treble, make sure use the wide bore tips, do not use the stock small bore tips, the nozzle size is 'universal' so finding tips won't be hard, try Heir/Philips tips,  or Meelec's single and dual flange, Brainwavz silicones are also wide enough

Not even in the same league IMHO, though I am eagerly waiting for the showdown

I've only paired it with the Studio so far. One of my weak spots is a big soundstage, so I couldn't resist reaching directly for the Studio first :smile:

Thanks guys. I'll definitely be playing with the different possible combinations and your basic burn-in. I don't give up that easy!

The Dunu wins in my opinion, they sound clearer, cleaner there's more clarity, treble has further extension.  The Coppers do sound more natural, but veiled at the same time. Even though they underperform against the hybrid they still have quite an addictive sound signature and presentation, they do enough. Also not lets forget the look of the Coppers which I completely love. The Turbines are my new 'on the go' IEM to try and blend in with the outside mainstream crowd while being a little different. :)

As you said Turbine series are decent sounding IEM's though not up to Dunu standard, DN-1000 takes prizes in a price to performance ratio easily. I think the Coppers could compete with TF10 and GR07, and pushing it's limits at that.

I still think the Dunu looks pretty good, even next to the Turbines.

I think the coppers are direct competitor to Silver Bullet, their signature are somewhat similar, though SB's driver flex can be annoying at times

 Let the sun rays catch the Turbines glistening housing while strolling along Manly Beach front.

Yup, that's right, these. are. Monster Turbine, keep your sunglasses on people. :wink_face:

^ (five minute walk from my house btw) ^

The Dunu are quite capable of blinding people as well imo. That chrome sure knows how to put on a show. *pulls up at stop lights riding BMX bike wearing DN-1000*
