REVIEW : DUNU DN1000 - Immensely Capable Hybrid IEM - Page 2

post #16 of 121

Great Review, thank you!

 

I love the detail of your review and also how you name tracks you listen to for example especially for sound stage.

It's always interesting to hear other peoples critical listening tracks, and what exactly they pay attention to.

For me as a newbie, and a music lover who's always interested in discovering new music, this is very nice to see

Very nice review! Your SQ impressions are just as exactly as I would describe them. Love my DN1000"s! Thanks for the awesome write up!

post #18 of 121

how do these compare to RE262 by Hifiman? I hated the quality on those and it didn't last me long. 

 

How about to vsonic GR07 which i've been eyeing for a while. 

 

Also how's the fit for small ears?

Wonderful review. Extremely well written. Thank you Brooko. Make me want to try the Dunu DN1000 for sure even more now.

Hi Simon - thanks.  I've bought and sold quite a few different headphones during the year - including finally snagging myself an RS1 buttoned classic. But as far as sheer enjoyment factor goes - the Dunu would be right up there - and might even sit up the top of my 2013 list.  Every time I put them on, it's just toe-tapping fun.

 

I really can't recommend them highly enough.  At the price - they're a steal.

That's good to know. I bought the Westone W4R hoping for the same result but it doesn't get my toes tapping enough :(. It's good but still not sure. I'm currently enjoying the Vsonic GR07 MKII much more. 

 

Congratulation on the RS1. I'm currently out of Grado family headphone but sometime I'm missing the MS-Pro. Maybe one day.

 

Happy Holiday to you and your family Paul.

     noktekniq I don't have the RE262 but I do have the RE272. The 272 in probably more neutral and it is much smoother with less treble and definitely far less bass. Not that the DN1000 is overly bassy, I find it's bass pleasingly boosted, and well behaved. The 272 is more even but the DN1000 is much more fun. Someone else said it best when they said that rather than taking a neutral phone and making it more fun, they took a fun IEM and added quality. My 272's have better cables, but other than that I consider them about equal in build quality and accessories. My DN1000's get more playtime than the 272's now.

    As far as comfort, I have no issues, however I also have large ear canals. Hope this was of some help for you.

How are the dn-1000 compared to the yamaha eph-100?

I own the eph-100 (love them!) and listen to trance and hard rock. I find the eph-100 to be really, really good in terms of clarity, details, seperation and sound signature (good bass presence, nice mids and calmed treble-not sibilant or too spiky). So are the dunu's can be considered as an upgrade or a step up from the eph-100 in the parameters I mentioned above!

100% upgrade in every way.

I know one way some manufacturers are allowing users to tweak the sound is with exchangeable nozzles/filters.  Given how solid these are - it might be something to think about for the future?

 

 

And thanks everyone else for the good comments.  if you are looking for another IEM - I really can't think of another in this price bracket that I would recommend over the DN-1000.  they are indeed a winner.

 

So far I didn't get that kind of feedback but I think it's possible to have one. The design idea is to to provide chance for every user to find a more comfortable fitting in a simple way.

 

Some may like the design and some may not. However I think your suggestion is good.  Maybe we can try the exchangeable nozzles next time.

I agree! I tried the Yamaha's before I bought the DN1000's and they were nice, but not in the same league as the Dunu's. The Yamaha's had a peak in the upper mids that I couldn't live with. The Dunu's are much more refined.

Hey Rocky, Could you also make the nozzle a little smaller in diameter?
