DN-2000 (£239)

New Dunu Earphones Coming Soon to AMP3

With the Dunu range of in-ear headphones proving popular at AMP3, we are soon to be stocking a range of new Dunu products. Check out the new arrivals below.



Dunu DN-Titan 1 Dynamic IEM Earphones with Top of the Line Dynamic Transducer & Nano Class Titanium Diaphragm


DN-Titan 1 (£79)

DN-Titan 1 (£79)


The most affordable of the new additions to the Dunu range, the DN-Titan 1s are definitely not to be sniffed at. Utilizing a titanium diaphragm these in ear monitors produce a thick bass and clear trebles that belies their price and can handle high power without causing distortion.


With a sleek, minimalist body crafted in metal designed to reduce extra resonance, these earphones are tough and durable.


See the link below for more details:

Dunu DN-Titan 1


Dunu DN-Alpha 1 Dynamic Balanced Armature Earphones – The World’s First Hybrid Earbud

DN-Alpha 1 (£129)

DN-Alpha 1 (£129)

Being touted as the ‘World’s first hybrid earbud’, the new DN-Alpha 1s certainly will pique music enthusiasts’ interest.


When looking for earphones to use on the move, people tend to look for in-canal earphones as they create a seal with the ear and isolate the listener from outside noise; not so with the humble earbud.


This may put some potential buyers off, but the DN-Alpha 1s are actually very comfortable and have been graced with a ‘hybrid’ system of dynamic and balanced armature drivers. With the dynamic driver providing quality bass and the balanced armature taking care of the mids and highs, the Alpha 1s prove to be well-balanced and smooth whilst maintaining comfort for the listener.


If this wasn’t enough, the Alpha 1s come supplied with a treasure trove of accessories to make sure you get the most from your new earphones.

Dunu DN-Alpha 1


Dunu DN-2000 Audiophile Dynamic Balanced Armature Hybrid IEM Earphones with Pioneering Hybrid Technology

DN-2000 (£239)

DN-2000 (£239)

Last but certainly not least, the DN-2000s again feature the combination of dynamic drivers and dual balanced armature drivers to create a ‘hybrid’ flagship earphone.


With a dynamic driver to produce strong bass outputs, and a single driver for both the mids and highs, the DN-2000s provide the listener with a full soundstage which is suitable for all genres of music.


The DN-2000s are as a result balanced and transparent but not lacking in bass, meaning they are the perfect earphones for those looking for a quality output for their high-resolution player.

DACs for your ‘phones?


Zorloo Z:ero


With greater demand for higher sound quality whilst on the move some manufacturers have come up with a novel way of getting you the quality you demand – earphones with integrated DACs.

The earphone manufacturer Zorloo has designed the ‘World’s First’ digital earphone, the bizarrely named Z:ero, which plugs directly into the Micro-USB port on your smartphone to provide you with digital audio output. With a Wolfson DAC and a headphone amplifier crammed into the in-line control, the Zorloo Z:ero is definitely more portable than carrying around a separate DAC and amp.


FiiO E18

Previously audiophiles on the move would have to carry around amplifier/DAC combos such as the FiiO E18

But Zorloo aren’t the only people to offer headphones with built-in DACs. Sony has already released the MDR-1ADAC, a set of over-ear headphones with a built-in DAC, and Philips demoed their new NC1L noise cancelling headphones at CES 2015, which has an integrated 24-bit DAC designed to give Apple users superior audio via the Lightning port on their device.


Zorloo may not have gotten there first, but incorporating DACs into earphones and headphones may be the start of a new trend as manufacturers look to target the more discerning smartphone audio enthusiasts.

Headphone Maintenance Tips From ThinkSound – A helpful guide for all In-Ear Users!


Headphone Care and Maintenance
*Thanks To thinksound.com for information*

Here at Advanced MP3 Players we love to provide you with great information that lets you keep your headphones sounding as good as new! Its an annoyance when your premium buds dont sound premium. By taking care of them you can have that awesome sound you want delivered everytime! Check out the following information supplied by thinksound.com on headphone Maintenance!

Headphones should be treated gently. Improper use and abuse may void warranty.

  • Do not remove your headphones by pulling on the cord. Remove your heaphones by firmly gasping the plug.
  • Do not wrap around your phone or mp3 player. When not in use wrap the cable or store in the supplied pouch.
  • Please periodically clean your headphones to avoid earwax buildup in the earpiece. Not cleaning them can result in no sound, low sound or unbalanced sound.

How to wrap your headphone cord:

Aaron shows you a quick and easy way to properly wrap your headphones to prevent any damage in this video…

How to clean your thinksound headphones:

  • Remove your silicon fittings. If you lose them they can be purchased at http://store.thinksound.com
  • Put about two caps full of hydrogen peroxide into a small dish.
  • Place the earphones screen-side-down into the dish.
  • Remove the earphones after about 10 seconds then dry with a towel and remove any debris that was loosened by the peroxide. You may also lightly blow into the earpiece (without touching your lips to the earpiece) into the screen to help dry.
  • Repeat this same cleaning process again; this time using two caps full of rubbing alcohol.
  • Once dry, place the silicon fittings back on the earphones.

You are done!

One side of my headphones sounds quiet and it wasn’t when I purchased it. What can I do?

Headphones have very small and delicate speaker drivers inside them. Sometimes the speaker driver may get moved slightly out of alignment because of air pressure when you insert them.

  • Remove the silicone fitting from the earpiece.
  • Put your mouth near the opening (not around the opening) and blow air into the quiet ear piece.
  • Listen to your headphones to see if the problem has been resolved.
  • Try these steps a few times and if it does not work contact thinksound.

Try the above steps a couple times before calling support or returning your headset. It has been found that many customers who think they have a defect actually just need to clean or blow out their earpieces.

Important headphone instructions:

  • Please try all size fittings before deciding which ones you will use as your primary fittings. Using the incorrect size can greatly affect the sound quality of your thinksound headphones.
  • Please use the supplied cable clip when doing rigorous activities to limit cable noise and possible tangling of the cables.
  • Enjoy your music at a comfortable volume for a reasonable period of time to prevent hearing damage or loss. Observe local laws while wearing headphones. thinksound is not responsible for hearing loss or damage due to use of our product.
