Dunu ZEN: Immerse Yourself

Greetings! Today we’re checking out the ZEN, Dunu’s entry into what has become a very competitive, upper mid-range market. Like Dunu’s flagship Luna, the ZEN moves away from the hybrid and armature-only configurations that have become quite popular in recent years. This doesn’t mean it’s a simple product. The 13.5mm dynamic used in the ZEN utilizes technology derived from the Luna. The wide, cone-shaped dome … Continue reading Dunu ZEN: Immerse Yourself

Dunu Luna: World’s First

Greetings! Today we’re checking out the Luna, a new flagship single dynamic-based earphone with some “world’s first” technology running the show. Beryllium is a pretty sweet material to use for speakers. Dangerous to collect and manufacture, but the resultant qualities are worth it. It’s extremely light and stiff resulting in breakup/distortion later, and at higher frequencies than other more common materials, such as titanium. Whereas … Continue reading Dunu Luna: World’s First

Dunu studio SA3: A New Beginning

Greetings! Today we’re checking out the first of Dunu’s entries into the all-armature market, the SA3. Dunu was a pioneering brand when it came to affordable hybrids competing directly with the high-end market, and also produced their fair share of above average single dynamics. When they announced they were going to try their hand at an armature-only lineup, my ears perked up and I took … Continue reading Dunu studio SA3: A New Beginning

Dunu DK-3001 Pro: Finesse

Greetings! Today we’re checking out something special; Dunu’s DK-3001 Pro. Back in 2017 Dunu released the original DK-3001 to positive fanfare. While I never had the chance to try out that model, looking back on old reviews it seems much of the original’s DNA remains, although with the Pro Dunu has reworked the concept. Along with the addition of an extra armature bringing the total … Continue reading Dunu DK-3001 Pro: Finesse

Dunu DM-480: Twins Basil!

Greetings! Today we’re checking out one of Dunu’s most recent releases, the DM-480. Dunu is far from new to the audio world, having been an OEM/ODM prior to firing up their own earphone brand in 2006. Around the time I was jumping feet first into the hobby, they were delivering some pretty groundbreaking products like the Titan 1, 3, 5, and the DN-2000. The Titan … Continue reading Dunu DM-480: Twins Basil!

Dunu DM-480 Unboxing

Greetings, Just a little picture dump to show you what you get with the new Dunu DM-480. Case is really nice with a grippy, textured fabric and contrasting stitching. Inside there is plenty of room for the iems, cable, and spare tips, and it’s slender enough to comfortably fit in the average pocket. The included tips are excellent, especially the blue cored set. They remind … Continue reading Dunu DM-480 Unboxing
