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.

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.

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.

Cheap but good.
  • It’s a thick, rich and warm sound. The detail isn’t going to wow and amaze but for the money it’s a good as you can really ask for. Most importantly I think, these get nothing wrong.

Best Warm signature IEM for its price
  • Dunu Trident DN 12 needs burn in period to get the actual SQ.

    here is my impression of DUNU Trident

    * Bass is heavy and punchy.
    * Mid is Focused and clear.
    * Sound Stage and Separation wise enough


    Earphone is somewhat heavy which will not fix securely in my ears.
