Out of Ath ckr9 , Ath im02 and dn2k. Which is recommended? I read that ath im02 can get very picky with sources and mayb be too revealing. Dn2k was my choice before reading on ckr9 and fx850 were said that the bass were too strong for some. Even some have claimed them to be dark others said otherwise. If they are dark they wouldnt pair well with fioo x5 would it?
What is your music?
For me, although CKR9 has better dynamic than DUNU DN-1000, my best choice of all the earphones I've ever heard and owned, still DUNU DN-1000 with JVC HA-FXD silicon tips. Better overall sound signature. But ONLY with JVC HA-FXD80 tips, DUNU DN-1000 excels everything I've ever tried. Placing the DN1000 in the class of Fitear 334 and 335. I prefer natural sound, realistic detail, realistic bass, natural midrange, airy and transparent treble. So FX850 sound signature not really fitting my sonic preference. Only for some recordings that sounds good with warm and thick sounding IEM. But again, that's for me, not necessary apply to other.
JVC HA-FXD tips can be purchased from Amazon Japan. Item code:
Please note, this JVC tip is 1 mm larger than normal tip. I usually use Large tips, but with JVC tip, I use Medium size.
Well, I'm still waiting for my DN-2000, so haven't compared with DN-2K. Maybe it will sounds better than DN-1000 :)
