Anyone hearing anything about the DK-4001?
I know there was a slight delay in their latest flagship...I think until March...please dont quote me on that
Did you guys burn in your 3001 for sometime ? How long did you guys burn in ? Did any sound improvement make?
They don't need burn in. Just use them.
Not really, I think that most difference would be at bass levels if there are any, but I haven't noticed DK-3001's sound changing over time.
I remember DK-3001 sounding quite awesome from the start, and staying quite awesome throughout my experience
yes, especially with the right and good tips. I used to just use a regular tips and not know how much difference they can make. but now I love the sounds and its awesome.
I had the opportunity of a brief audition for DK-3001, thanks to @Dobrescu George and I've got an idea why these are so praised for the sound.
However, I found the lower/mid treble being a little too much for me, tending to EQ (down) those frequencies.
The source was a Sony ZX2 and various tips were used.
Does anybody else felt the same, or should I think I am too sensitive to that region?
Nope, you're not alone. Noted that in my (German) review as well. Midrange timbre is definitely on the brighter, leaner side, which is done to have a greater focus on air and female vocals (and something that you find rather often (but not always) in hybrid Asian in-ears). Imo they could and should have gone for a more neutral, flatter midrange timbre and slightly lesser middle treble bump, which are the two things that I see as the DK-3001's only imperfections, however there isn't really any added sharpness or peakiness despite the increased brightness.
Different strokes, different folks I guess. If I could get the DK-3001 tuning in an ergonomic shell, it would be pretty close to end game for me personally.
I agree...to my ears it was difficult to find sound flaws
I agree, although a longer nozzle wouldn't be unwelcome either. If the DK-4001 does have a beryllium DD (I can't remember if that was speculation or official spec), that should mean even more controlled and impactful bass. And, hopefully, the additional BA helps lift the mids just a touch. Then, they absolutely would be end game for me.
A longer nozzle falls under ergonomics. And most will agree, there's a lot they could do to make these fit nicer.
Any idea if this will be the case for 4001?
