Dunu DN-2000 - Hybrid Impressions Thread (It's Here!) - Page 30

Never, ever, ever use price as an indicator of sound quality. If that was the case, head-fi would not exist, and we would all own Beats headphones not knowing any better, like most of the rest of the people I see every day.

I cannot stand seeing those things on everyone while I'm walking around in the city. At least it isn't just white earpods now. I kinda pity every person I see with a beats, Bose, or earpod.

I don't, sometimes ignorance is bliss haha

Earpods don't even sound that bad tbh!

So I haven't looked at IEMs in quite a few years, and never did end up getting a quality pair. I have a new job and a birthday, so I figured why not see how the old T.F. 10s are priced these days, and I'm excited to see that it doesn't seem to be at the forefront anymore and there are new choices.

It would be more rational for me to wait for more opinions on these, but they just seem like the perfect fit for what I am looking for, with the treble/sibilance issues scaring me away from the H-300s.

Idk how useful my impressions will be as all I've really got to go on in comparison are full size headphones, the best being my Audiotechnica ATH-AD2000's. Still I'll weigh in on how my first high end IEM purchase goes.

Thanks to all the contributors on this forum for the info and reviews. I was reading for hours today, makes me want to drop a grand

Dunu DN-1000 is a clear upgrade from TF10, not just from my opinion but a few members. How Dunu DN-2000 fairs (especially in bass quantity ) only time will tell for me though it will clearly be an upgrade from TF10. The problem with this hobby is you can't really upgrade from any given IEM and retain the same signature - very rarely is it possible to upgrade withholding the same bass quantity mid position treble response etc..... so changes must be determined or evaluated before purchase with a site of in some forms black and white varying impressions.  H-300 is a good IEM providing you have the correct source, though she's not for the faint hearted. H-300 is like that wild girl you met who had a bit too much to drink. Excellent for somethings dangerous for others.

Yeah I plan on hooking these to a variety of sources, typically unamped and not eq'd, which was the main reason the H-300 lost out (for now). As much as the wild girl may provide some extra thump and unexpected details, I don't want her to puke all over my new shoes. I might end up grabbing a used pair eventually if someone else can't handle them, but I'm not trying to turn her into a housewife tongue.gif

Personifying headphones always gets weird...

H-300 are the best iems I own IMHO and I own plenty of highly regarded iems. If you can get them used or cheaper in sort of way, jump on them.

Anybody out in DN2k land heard the ASG2s for comparisons?

Sounds like a plan! ;)

For people who do want to use H-300 they're best paired with warmer sources, (preferably with rolled off highs), what you want is tone down the colder mids and highs. They're simply tuned to be overly lean and transparent, (probably just a fraction too much), as a compromise the highs can get hot, only I must stress, if you have several sources and use trial and error they can perform very well as an allrounder, for example I like them quite a bit more than Sony H3. The problem is unless you have several sources to try you're running a gamble going in blind, I assume this is why we get different opinions on them as they're terribly source dependent how they display themselves.

Hopefully DN-2000 will be with me in the next week thereabouts.

To add to H20s post, a good eq can also provide the tweaks to get the most out of the H300. A bit of eq and a well mastered track, and the H300 can sound amazing ;-)

Is this the dunu dn-2k or the h-300 thread? :P

But yea, eq helps h-300 tremendously.
