From a resurging DUNU, also known as TopSound, is the DN-12 "Trident" IEM earphones. The DN-12 "Trident" is one of DUNU's new lineup, featuring a dynamic driver design and impressive build quality to pair with a warm and balanced sound signature. The DN-12 "Trident" has a pronounced treble making it easy to hear detail as well as lush mids that are well separated. The overall balance of the Trident is one of its main selling points, with no range overpowering the overall sound.

  • For a start I bought these just as some throw in the gym bag and not worry about,as I have some very expensive iem's and over ears,first thoughts were,not bad for the money,nothing special,after about 50 hours use they have settled down into very good phones,dare I say they are nearly equal to my other iem's at nearly 8 times the price,yes I would,there are certain frequencies that you notice are missing,but for the money I would have no hesitation in recommending them,even if they were 3 times the price I think they would be worth it

After 5 months of using the DN-12...
  • It still works after 5 months of normal use, I don't baby them, but I don't abuse them. I've used them everyday for about 2 months while commuting by foot, recently switched to cheaper pairs because I REALLY LIKE THESE, and I want them to last longer.

    They sound more interesting than the Brainwavz M4 and M5 IEMs, making them the best sounding pair that I own. They have a strange sound signature, and it gets very addicting to use them just to get that strange sound. It makes deep female vocals sound real nice. If you listen to artists like Leona Lewis or Utada Hikaru, you'll love these.

    They definitely aren't neutral, so if you are looking for neutral sound, stay away from these! I also think they may be too bass heavy for rock or metal music. For hip-hop, rnb, or electronic music, these are great.

    A downside is the construction does not seem very tough. I mean the metal housing seems strong, but I don't really trust the cord. If I wore these almost every day for a year, I wouldn't expect it to last more than a year.

It has been over a year.
  • It has been over a year since I got these earphones. They still sound pretty good if not better.

    I was impressed by the build quality of the product. The details on the aliminium casings are really good. And they have a unique design which I like everytime I put them on. On the other hand, they are very heavy. These tend to hang down and fall out of my ears sometimes especially if I have one of them on.

    Particularly when I am running with these on for example, I realise that they are falling out when sound quality and isolation goes down :) Then I push them in my ears again.

    The rubbery cable material catches dust and fibers around, such as my sweater. Also the rubber makes the entanglements harder to unfold. This could be improved.

    Again, on the minus side, they have a very loud stethoscope effect. Even if you touch the cable you hear it like someone is trying to break down your door. A little annoying.

    On the plus side, the earbuds fit perfectly and isolate the noise very well. Also they gave me the perfect sound right out of the box. Punchy bass, clear mids.

    Very durable. For over a year I haven't really been gentle with my Trident as much as I wanted to. They got smashed here and there, fell on the ground, got yanked a lot of times and they still work.

    Funny story, these pair of Dunu Tridents also went in the washing machine for one cycle. I was worried and they sounded really bad right after. But I gave them about a week to dry and settle. After that they were almost as good as I first got them. Couldn't tell if there was a difference.

    At this point I realised this review appears too long. So to conclude, I am really happy with my purchase and I recommend these earphones to anyone. I even got one for my friend a bit later.

    Which reminds me, I bought quite a few Brainwavz products around Christmas so I gotta go on to review them as well.

    Hope this helps, thanks for reading.

Great quality earphone
  • Great quality earphone, excellent sound, deep bass.
    Отличные наушники, очень хорошее качество звучания, басы присутсвуют в полной мере. Богатая комплектация, но реально не хватает пенных насадок. В дополнение были докуплены пеннве насадки и силиконовые заушные крепления.

Nice sound, nice look, nice price
  • 3 days ago i receive this earphones.
    Its very good and beautiful box.

    About sound:
    I like deep-deep bass, and this earphones give it to me. Im very happy. DnB, Trance, Progressive etc. sounds good. Guitar in rock-based styles little whorse, but not bad. Overall sound quality is 7/10, but for this price is 10/10!!!

    Cons for me is simmetrycal cable. I more like unsymmetrical.

    Overall 9/10

Great Quality Budget Minded IEMs
  • Pros: Build Quality, Accessories, Crystal Clear Sound
    Cons: Weight, Shape

    First off, the build quality for this price is AMAZING. The DUNU DN-12 Trident is a TANK. Nothing is stopping these things. They are solid.

    Even opening them up out of the box makes you feel like you spent at least 10x more than you did. The packaging is top notch. So is all that is included.

    Sound quality after burn in is magical. Highs roll of perfectly with only hint of needed sparkle. Mids are forward and oh so clear (my favorite part). Lows stay where they belong. They to not push themselves into the mids at all. Thus I would call these "Bass Neutral" instead of Bass Light.

    The sound out of these IEMs is "Monitor" quality. You get a great representation of what the artist actually recorded.

    My only issue with the Trident is the fit. Or more the weight and shape of the IEM. They look and feel like a heavy "trumpets". So even with the correct tip, the weight of the DUNU can make the IEM sag to the bottom of your ear tips.

    Value is top notch. There is nothing in this price range that can touch the DN-12 for overall sound and build quality.
