    Thank you! That was very helpful. It's hard to find comparisons between the LCD-X and something I have actually heard.

    Your comparison of the soundstage of the two is interesting. I actually feel that the DUNU have a wide soundstage for IEMs, definitely the widest out of those I own, and fantastic separation and layering. I was unsure if that was just because it was among the brightest 'phones I own or if that was because they were really good at it.

    Not many vendors have these in the US but there is a store in NYC that has them and via an ebay storefront - audio46. Ordered my set today, should be here Tuesday. I have a feeling I'll keep both these and the 2000J's but can't wait to hear the 3001's!!!!!!!!

    If you can manage to get a comfortable fit I'm sure you will love the sound.

    I tried out the 2002's awhile back but preferred the 2000J's, but got an easy fit with the 2002's. The 3001's look easier to fit so I hope it will be another easy go at it!

    They are - well, at least for me. While I have to rotate the 2002's shells a bit forward so that the connectors are not in the way, the DK-3001 fits very comfortably and great in my ears (however due to its design, I can definitely understand that some people are having comfort issues).

    Turns out the 3001's fit perfectly in my ears as well. Initial impressions are the sound is more spacious and 3 dimensional vs the 2000J's. Only been listening to them for 30 minutes but sound so good so far. Still feel super comfy too. I think this investment is gonna pay off :)

    Interested in your comparison between the 3001 and the 2000j

    Anyone else get the feeling that the DK-3001 are the hybrid IEM's that Sony has been trying to make for the last five years?

    Definitely. Gonna stick with the 3001's for a couple days before I throw on the 2000J's and start making comparisons. I think Brooko always says to do that. I think it's Brooko - keep the new pair on a couple days before starting comparisons.

    Have had the 3001's on since 1:30 and they are indeed pretty amazing. My gut tells me these are without a doubt superior to the 2000J's and will become part of my EDC. Trying the spinfit tips and the include grey silicone tips. One other impression I have is that the spinfits slightly muddy the presentation by dulling the highs and emphasizing bass. I like the gray silicone tips better so far.

    Overall balance is a lot better with the 3001 - and I’d regard them as sonically superior as well -so you are not alone here.

    Yeah totally. I have barely taken these off in the last almost 6 hours. Well recorded songs just blow me away more so than I remember on the 2000J's, which I was listening to a couple days ago. The Riot's Gone by Santigold is just epic on these things. I ordered some Auvio and Spiral dot tips to play around with the sound and seal a bit. I'm pleased with where my $500 has gone.

    I also love the build quality feel of these things. They feel like little audio producing tanks. The 2000J's feel tough but the wire attachment, look-wise, does not inspire confidence.

    I just wish they fit me better. If it wasn't a review sample - I'd be modifying mine.
  13. Dobrescu George
    Fun thing is, they actually fit me extremely well, but I'd be modifying them if they weren't, then add it as a part of the review, simply because it might help some people if they wanted to apply similar changes. I can totally understand how they could be uncomfortable to some, but they work really well for me, but only with Spinfit tips. With the other tips, I can feel the edge being a bit too much :smile_phones:

    yeah i took a look in the mirror and they fit my ears like a glove. I just wish there was an ML sized tip. I'm like right in between Medium and Large on the silicones. The spinfits fit me fine but I don't like them quite as much. So I'll see if the spiral dot ML works out for me.

    oh and why is this thread so damn short lol
