Nope, mine's still really flexible.

Mine are still pretty good - but it does remain the one 'concern' I have with the Dunus.  I don't want a replaceable cable for an aftermarket option.  I simply wnat a replacement cable so that if the worst happens (cable breakage), the fix is easy and inexpensive .....

I want an aftermarket cable, :) But of course the long life span as detachable cables give the buyer a feeling of good investment, something H-200 had. We might be pushing it at Dunu's asking price (which is already excellent value for money) though I would pay a little more for that option. Plus I think those chrome housings would like pretty special with a fancy eye catching cable on them.  

I've been meaning to ask you Brooko, how did the DN-1000 pair with X5? Was it a good match?

Cable's still supple on my DN-1000. I hope it stays that way... it'll be such a loss if it is in fact its weak point.

They are currently available at certain group buy web site.

I was expecting the worst when I read Fiio's recommendation of 30-150ohm as preferred range - but was very pleasantly surprised.  I think it's the extremely low headphone out impedance that is the secret.  it just lets the Dunu 'do it's thing', and stays out of it's way.  I thought they matched extremely well.

I'm only talking about a very small bit of stiffness - still supple, just a bit firmer near the housings.

And the BE had better micro details but the DN1k has deeper bass and better soundstage.

 

Your U2 the async version?

 

Is it a big upgrade from an integrated soundcard? Or from a Fuze/Clip/iPhone 4/5? (these are on similar level)

I saw you have Clip, could you compare (or with iPhone)?

thanks, its a great help.

it is to some degree, but compared to aftermarket pure coppers, the Dunu's is as soft as silk... :tongue_smile:

Just bought these for my portable setup. You guys think that the iPod classic latest gen would be a decent source for it? Or should I carry around my e07k?

Also has anybody heard the eph-100, gr07be and se215 that could compare em to the dn-1000?

If it matters to you, the iPod will have a pretty audible hiss with the DN 1000. I use my E 17 to eliminate hiss and deepen the soundstage.

Read a couple pages prior to this one for comparisons to the GR 07BE and EPH100.

Yes it is. I haven't sat down and compared to any of those side-by-side. I can this coming week, but realize it's sort of like apples to oranges. I'll be comparing a laptop with USB DAC to a budget DAP and cell phone.

it would probably be just as helpful to you to read up on the sound quality opinions of the iPhone and the clip separately.
post #914 of 1741

Thanks!

 

I have clip and iPhone (they are similar in quality), and I just would like to know if that invesment would worth the price :)

If you could compare them, it would be awesome.

It is.
