Don't worry mate. It doesn't really beat the h200 all the way. As a matter of fact it may have a minor flaw too... The SSSSs can be too sibilant for some people. In my case it's tolerable but sibilant in some songs if I listen at higher volumes. Good news is the timbre is really good making all kinds of cymbals and percussion sound awesome. Note that I'm still at the stage of tip rolling. Tips do make a lot of difference in the DN 1000's case so I may find a fix. The bi flanges don't sound as sibilant for one.
As for h200 owners, it's not really an upgrade if soundstage isn't the priority. Did I tell you that my pair now sounds perfect to me after figuring out the filter mod to fix kimvictor's issue with that song of his? My H200 now sounds more controlled in treble vs the DN 1000! (Disclaimer: still in the process of finding the right tips for the DN 1k)
That's all rather interesting indeed! I should look into that filter mod of which you speak. Also, your cable probably factors in. And which tips are you using on your H200's? (sorry.. OT!)
