I have owned jvc fx850, dunu 2k, ortofone eq5, and ma750. All are good in their own rights, most of these were purhase above $200 with the exception of the ma750. I have heard that CIEM will give me superior sound. I love the DN2K so much. I hope this HYBRID 3 WAY CIEM (10mm dynamic + 2 BA) will meet my expectations. If Anyone have any experience this this set, please elaborate. At the current massdrop pricing of $250.00 with a variety of color and face option, I don't this value could be beat.
