    Sorry for the delayed reply. Essentially, the idea is to prevent each eartip from being pushed all the way to the housing of the earphone, thus enabling a deeper fit in the ear. I would post a pic, but my guerilla solution is hideous and I’m ashamed to show it.

    I never really noticed until today how well the 3001 stacks up against the HiFiMan HE-560 with bass boost.

    The 560 still has the advantages I would expect from a full-sized planar in comparison to an IEM: deeper bass extension, better bass texture, better soundstage, and a little less bite in the treble. But, the 3001 really is at least as good on separation, imaging, and mids, plus it has that tight punchy bass that only a dynamic driver can really deliver.

    I try not to compare IEMs and headphones, but I am really impressed with the results here.

    I love the 3001. Not only is it technically brilliant but its sound is fun as hell.

    I use SE846 and I love them, but I want to try something new. I love the shure compact form fit, and the mid clarity, and low end ummph. I would not mind a tad bit more sparkly up top, if possible. So out of the DK3001 vs JVC FW01, what do folks recommend? or should I step up to the Campfire series?

    im looking to update my flc8s.. poor bastards died..
    do you recommend these over flc?
    its this/jvc hafw01.brainwavz b400 and im divided
    also, what was your tuning for flc8s?

    how do the dk3001 respond to equalizer?
    and how's the the timbre?

    The DK-3001 is in an entirely different league from the B400, if you'll pardon the cliche. There simply is no technical aspect that the 3001 doesn't do better, and I really admire the B400 for its price point. The problem is, as great a value the B400 is for $200, the 3001 is for $500.

    If you can handle the iffy fit and the elevated treble (which is well done), then 3001 is killer.

    I have the 846 also. The 3001 is less lush and less warm, but it has tight, detailed, and hard-hitting bass. The treble is significantly more pronounced than on the Shures, even with the white filters, so the overall tone is comparatively bright and clear. If you really are looking for only a "tad" more treble, the Andros would be a better fit, more of a middle ground between the 3001 and 846, IMO. All three have tremendous sound quality, so it may just come down to a tuning preference. For me, the Andros would be a replacement for the 846, while the 3001 is a nice complement.

    A necessary complement for the Dunus (from my point of view) is an aftermarket cable. For mines, I purchased this one and comfort wise, it's night and day folks.


    The DK3001s are though being canibalized (at least in my home country) by a huge hype with aa rather new iem. The IMR-R1 that can be purchased directly from the manufacturer at 220£ (B- Stock). Cable replacement id also strongly recommended.

    Hmm I wasn't aware of that DUNU cable. It looks really nice.

    Anyone using the 3001 with a cable the doesn't have the bend at the MMCX? If so, how does a straight connector affect the over-ear comfort?
  11. crabdog
    Works fine for me and in most cases, I find straight connectors more comfortable than anything with memory wire. I really love DUNU cables though, even the stock DK-3001 one because the memory wire is so malleable. If you want to try a straight connector cable I know a good one for under $20 that you can test without putting yourself out of pocket too much. PM me if you want to know more.

    Good to know. Thanks! I like the stock cable, but the overly long memory wire part bugs me. I find it either sticks out funny or it pokes into my neck, and when I store it in my IEM case, it tends to make the cable have to take a hard turn to fit.

    I recently got a Penon CS819 that I really love, so I may go with that. And, as you said, DUNU makes some great cables themselves. I may also try to find a better color match. Which cable were you going to suggest?

    I can vouch for the Dunu aftermarket cable. It is absolutely fantastic with the straight connectors. The fact the right side is orange and the left side is black makes these a breeze to use. I was worried at first but using these for a few days instantly made me a convert about straight connectors.

    I also have my DK3001s with the Dunu's aftermarket cable. It's a no brainer for me and a significant step ahead comfort wise speaking. Paired with a couple of Spinfit Biflanges to get a deeper sealing -> awesome sounding.

    I'd like to know though, how do they pair with the IT04s...

    This thread hasn't even hit 30 pages yet for such an awesome-sounding IEM. What happened?

    Did everyone get scared off my possible fit issues? What's the deal?
