    You guys should try the mee double flange tips... just saying.

    Hopefully mine will arrive this week I am curious to hear them. First the Dita Audio Dream review.

    Anything double or triple hurts my ears, I literally have a sore spot at the moment from using double so I will not recommend them. There is a magical solution out there that everybody seems to love to bits, Mandarin tips, which I will be testing very soon! If they offer the perfect sound and comfort, my other reviews will be coming much faster as well!

    Looking forward to your thoughts! I hope that you love them as much as I do!

    Everyone comments are echoing my experience so far.

    Beautifully smooth and detailed sound with that dynamic bass impact. Ergonomically things aren't so great. That sharp edge causes hot-spots and memory wire...well it's pretty good as far as memory wire goes but I just don't see the need for it. Sure you can change the cable but...MMCX scares me ever since the female connector on my TFZ B2M crapped out. I removed the cables on the 3001 for some photos and I was terrified that something would go wrong. Fortunately they went back in without any issues but I won't be changing the cable again at least until my review is finished. :grin:

    This is a IEM that will surely place a smile on everyone's faces!

    About comfort, I have had zero problems using spinfits and I'll test it with Mandarins as well, which I hope will make things even better!

    The connectors are quite rigid, but that goes both ways, they don't disconnect easily, best is to leave them connected.

    Initial impressions from an on and off evening of listening:

    They have a very nice tone and deliver an enjoyable listening experience. The DD bass experience is alive and kicking. I have not heard any shrill treble, thank God as I am not a big fan of treble unless it is done well as in the case of Zeus. I have tested the usual music test tracks and all sounded detailed.

    Well built, solid. Prefer a 2-pin connection. Prefer no memory wire but for a memory wire this is not the worst I have used. Angle and nozzle length affect seal. I echo everyone's sentiments regarding the "ridge" and sharp edges on the shell, really the biggest gripe in my short time with them.

    Eartips... I always reach for Spiral Dots however after leaving the tips in my ear twice I gave up on them. The large SpinFit are the most comfortable, so far. They provide enough clearance the shell isn't digging into your ear. I will try my favorite narrow bore tips tomorrow, Final Audio.

    Spent the night using the Kann as the source as it appears the DK_3001 enjoys power. Will try Opus #2 tomorrow.

    I must say I certainly didn't expect this good of sound out of these. This is one of the most pleasant surprises I've had in a while regarding an IEM, not even taking in consideration the price to performance ratio. Maybe Brooko can chime in but if my memory serves me these would best the most overall similar package, the Fidue Sirius A91.

    Yep - if you take value into account. From my review:

    I just wish they'd put the DK-3001 into a better more ergonomic shell. Its the one let-down which could have had a lot of improvement. Sonically though - esp for the price - DK-3001 punches way above its cost.
  10. subguy812
    Me too, the "ridge" is very uncomfortable. Sonically, it is only me remembering or at least trying to remember the A91. I do think Dunu is heading in the right direction. Even the size of the shell is great just the ergonomics arrgh! I use tips that only allow the shell minimum contact with my skin.
  11. Dobrescu George
    the next step in achieving an even better sound is to bring more treble to the mix!
  12. subguy812
    Ugh! No more treble.
  13. crabdog
    Personally I feel the treble is spot on.
    I was thinking the same. I feel it's pretty spot on where it is.

    Everyone has their own tastes after all, so no worries about it! :darthsmile:

    I do need more treble to feel happy, I will probably EQ them and add a bit more treble to satisfy my treble-hunger, but even so, the detail is all there and they are good at what they do.
  15. Brooko Contributor
    Any more treble would ruin their balance IMO George. It already has great extension.
