Often times when I buy a pair of in ears that I pay over 100 for I am quick to try and point out flaws rather than appreciate what's good. I'll share both.
Negatives: For my personal taste these are a little bright. At times it seems that the armature drivers are in front of the dynamic.
Positives: Let me start by saying these are awesome and the only reason I would point out any negative aspect is because I paid a lot of money for them in search of audio nirvana. Unfortunately these don't yet exist (at least I haven't bought them or been able to afford them or experience them yet) but these are pretty epic. The build is fantastic. It has good bass that's not to punchy and has a nice low end. These are extremely detailed and the separation of different sounds is excellent. I don't own a set of in ears that makes rock music sound as good, or as detailed as these do. The instruments sound like they should. Guitars sound great, and drums sound like, well, drums.
The DN1000 responds well to amplification and eq adjustment, so if anything bothers you with their signature they are easily adjustable to achieve the sound you desire. I really enjoy mine with my fiio e18 amp/dac, as it is gives them a warmer sound and, mellows out the highs while giving the low end a nice bump.
I am not an audiophile by any means. I'm just a guy that likes to hear his music sound good. I really enjoy them and definitely don't regret my purchase.
Thanks for reading, I hope this helps in your search of audio bliss.
