This is a terrific headphone that gets very little "love" on this site. I know it's pricey, and somewhat hard to get in the US, so I wondered -- how many Head-fiers are there out there who own and love this can? I sure do. Has probably the best bass I have ever heard from a headphone. Its very open and transparent sounding, with airy, extended treble and a crystal-clear midrange. The midrange can be just a little dry, and I like the DX1000 best with my Singlepower PPX3. But its a terrific can! Gratuitous glamor shot of mine: DX1000 owners unite!
