    ThieAudio Signature Series Tribrid IEMs

    Basshead here - not sure how to read Crin’s chart comparing my Sony MH755 to the OG Monarch, the subbass frequency response for the latter is lower so does that imply inferior performance?

    DUNU DM-480, DM-380 impressions thread

    If this IEM doesn’t satisfy bassheads, I want to know what you’re listening to! Tracks I’ve really enjoyed listening to are “2Pac - Ambitionz Az a Ridah” and “The Lox - Hard Life“. Can really feel the bass kick - @baskingshark visceral is right!

    DUNU DM-480, DM-380 impressions thread

    Received my DM-480 this evening. I’ve got a headcold so will reserve judgement but initial impressions are positive. Went straight to a copper cable (KBEAR 16 core pure) and driven by FiiO BTR3K (3.5mm). Subbass is definitely clear, detailed and punchy; well suited to rap/hiphop genre. *EDIT*...

    Head-Fi Basshead IEM thread (lists page 1)

    Keen for this group’s opinions on the DUNU DM-480. I’m surprised it’s not already been mentioned given some of the positive comments in the impressions thread, particularly regarding its subbass performance compared with the KBear Diamond to name one.

    DUNU DM-480, DM-380 impressions thread

    You've summed it up right there, thanks! :) I'm more inclined towards the visceral; what attracted me to the DM-480 in the first place was the woofer comparisons.

    DUNU DM-480, DM-380 impressions thread

    Having done some more reading, reviewers have been peering the DM-480 and the KBear Diamond, with the latter edging out(?). My question is, does swapping the chord on the DM-480 to pure copper (thus improving the mids) address those shortcomings vs the Diamond, namely timbre/tonality? I'm...

    Can you explain to me the different plugs/connectors? I’m not familiar with the selections (2-pin/MMCX) on DUNU’s site.

    DUNU DM-480, DM-380 impressions thread

    I’m trying to convince myself that USD80 - more than the price of the IEM - is good value for a cable. I’m not succeeding, pls help :)

    IEM with super bass (+ BT Amp/DAC?)

    Ok, so I've been looking into this, presume you're both referring to the difference in output power between the BTR5 and 3K? From FiiO's website: Model BTR5 BTR3K 3.5mm Headphone Output@32Ω 80mW 25mW Using my MH755 as a reference, it's maximum input power is 70 mW, so the BTR5 would be...

    IEM with super bass (+ BT Amp/DAC?)

    Long time listener, first time poster :) I'm a casual audiophile interested in any suggestions for enjoying hiphop/rap with serious bass, preferably within the AU$200 range. A pair of Marshall Mode EQ IEMs had served me well these past few years but recently frayed. I took a chance on a pair of...
