Their midrange and treble is spot on for me and bass tight and accurate. Its $60 iem you should give them a try. Although they are not technically able as dn1k in terms of separation and soundstage, they do sound musical and magical lol.
For the tips have you tried JVC spiral dotz? Wait you have the fx850 right? You've probably tried them. Compare to these tips (you've recommended) which is better?
Whats you favourite portable source for dn1k?
Hope to get a chance to try the Ostry KC06, thanks for the recommendation!
You should also try the Narmoo S1, very2 balance sound from bass to treble, highly recommended for sub $100 IEM. Still not the DN1K or DN2K class, but very2 good sound.
Didn't try Spiral Dot on DN1K or DN2K, and already returned the FX850 to my brother. But most probably Spiral Dot won't be compatible with the odd size of DN1K and DN2K nozzle.
For DN1K, the JVC tip from FXD series still the best sound so far.
For DN2K, I prefer the stock grey tip. DN2K doesn't sound very good with the JVC tips.
As for portable source, all my players, Fiio X3, Fiio X5, and iBasso DX90 sound good with DN1K. But the best match probably Fiio X5, the warmest sound of the 3. But also depending on the recordings. Both DX90 and X5 are very good with DN1K.
