Dunu DK-3001 – Full Stack Hybrid Energy

Build Quality

These earphones are mostly built using high precision engineering and use S316 stainless steel housing to decrease harmonic resonance.

The connectors are precise and fit with a secure snap fit. The shells are able to rotate 360 degrees so should help with all manner of fit preferences and ear shapes.

Cable jacks have re-enforced rubber to help with any excessive cable flex. They are made of a strong metal and have the models serial number printed on them.

Shells have mesh covered nozzles to protect from earwax and debris.

I am happy with the build quality and manufacturing quality of the Dunu DK-3001 hybrid earphones.

 Digital Audio Player Pairings

Pairing with the Astell and Kern AK380 Copper player

Energetic and articulate pairing with the elegant Astell and Kern AK380CU flagship  player – dynamic with decent synergy.

Pairing with the newly released Sony NW-WM1Z digital audio high end player

Warmer more natural signature, wider staging presence attained.

Driving the DK-3001 was quite easy and I suspect even a phone would be able to give a good experience with this  earphone due to its low impedance of 13 ohms.

As the AK380 had a more energetic presence than the warmer presence of the Sony NW-WM1Z player I felt the synergy with the DK-3001 earphone was more suited to the Astell and Kern player.

The rest of the review is based on the A380 pairing.

  • Nice looking little beasts.
    Be interesting to hear how they match against Sony Z5/MDR1000, and others in that price range.
    Assume the build quality is top notch?
