The highs on these dm2 sound great now (with approximately 100 hours of burn in). What was once the worst aspect of these things when I first bought them, they are now one of the best. Bass is still prominent. Midrange and vocals are in your face and aggressive. I get a little sibilance from time to time but it's more the track revealing itself than the phones, almost like it belongs where it's present.

If sidy is a DIY version, does anyone know what driver is in these things? I'm curious of what other companies use this style of driver.

generally, they are very forward, fun, in your face sounding. boosted across the frequencies. bass quantity will please anyone except bassheads.

I'm looking to sell mine for financial reasons. everytime I put it for sale, i get sentimental because they are such a faithful travel companion, and take the ad down, only to have to put it up again. if anyone is interested in my pair, drop me a PM

The dm2 uses a 10.1 custom built driver 😃

I thought I was enjoying my DM2 and SS01, until last night I spent almost an hour listening to Indila "mini world" album on HM700 with RE400B (that combo is INSANE, better than X5 + RE400 'unbalanced').  Now DM2 sounds too bassy with a narrow soundstage, while SS01 high frequency peaks (just too much brightness) starting to annoy me lol!!!

 

At this point, HM700+RE400B and X5+IM03 are my two favorite combos.

Looks like they missed the boat and they put them in a bottle.

X5 w/FW2.0 or FW1.2? :p 

 

2.0 change really brightened up the "color" of X5.  I'm still on a fence if I like it or not, but because of all these new custom modded 2.0 theme (http://www.head-fi.org/t/717947/fiio-x5-custom-modded-firmwares) - I can't go back to 1.2...

Hey all, I ordered the Im02 not too long ago however still waiting on them and after reading from this thread I just wanted to know if the B3 compete with them. I know there is a $100 price difference but knowing this would still be nice. Thanks!

Don't have B3, but for those who do and want to compare, IM02 has a bright analytical sound with low bass quantity (on a level of Etys).

So where does KZ R3 Linear Edition stand among the giants (Havi B3 Pro MK1, Ostry KC06 etc) ?

Probably the best cable but the sound is not up to the others. A good value at $20-ish shipped but the others like the Tenore/Ostry/Havi are worth the extra $$.

 

If you have faith in Tingo, maybe take a chance on the IE-60 or 80 which are both priced in between the R3 and the $60 models.
