DUNU, the high-end ear­phone brand from China, has been renowned in the hy­brid field for a long time.

Now it has launched a flag­ship hy­brid ear­phone, the DK-4001. Its chief de­signer Andy tells us more:

‘The DK-4001 was first in­tro­duced to the Chi­nese mar­ket in the au­tumn of 2015 and since then we’ve con­tin­ued to ‘arm’ this flag­ship ear­phone with up-to-date tech­nol­ogy and ma­te­ri­als. Now, the DK-4001 re­launches as a 5-driver hy­brid, with one dy­namic driver and four bal­anced ar­ma­ture driv­ers.’

Ex­plain­ing why the sound is so pure, Andy says, ‘The bass range is han­dled by a 13mm beryl­lium di­aphragm dy­namic driver – some­thing that has been newly de­vel­oped by DUNU. It fea­tures dou­ble-sided beryl­lium plat­ing tech­nol­ogy to de­liver ac­cu­rate low-fre­quency re­duc­tion and rich mid-fre­quency de­tails. Four Knowles high/ex­treme fre­quency bal­anced ar­ma­ture driv­ers en­sure an ex­tended fre­quency range without dis­tor­tion.’

The ear­phones, which went on sale in China last Septem­ber, are fast be­com­ing one of DUNU’S best sellers. This flag­ship prod­uct is ex­pected to launch in the UK soon.
