DUNU DN-2000 - Nozzle


First of all I would like to thank DUNU for sending me the DN-2000 for review. After having reviewed the DUNU Titan 1 and being mind-blown by the value for money they offered I was very much interested to see how the DN-2000 compared. I saw them being compared tot he likes of the AKG K3003’s and I was even more interested to see how they would compare with my personal favourite universal earphones, the Phonak Audeo PFE232.
The DN-2000 can be bought on AmazonUK for £250 and on AmazonUSA for $265. Yet again the UK/EU get horrible price conversions – the difference between UK and USA is near £100 – which is massively different.
As I live in the UK, these will be reviewed at £250.

The specifications of the earphones can be found on DUNU’s website.

To complement the written review, here’s a video review of the earphones:

AKG Y50 - Pouch and headphones

I was very much intrigued when AKG released their latest headphones, the Y50 range. This for me was an interesting leap into portability by AKG – often you see audiophile brands such as AKG, sky away from these types of models, as they tend to be cheaper and therefore have quite shoddy sound quality.
I was thus looking forward to reviewing the Y50 and hoping this wasn’t the case with this particular line – I was also intrigued to see how it fairs against its more expensive brothers the AKG K551’s and the AKG K545’s which I’ve previously reviewed. The AKG Y50s can be bought for around £80 on AmazonUK & AmazonUSA for $100.

Here’s my video review:
