Three drivers for all occasions: overview headphones Dunu DM-380

Pages we often talk about headphones from the company Dunu Topsound. It started with the production of OEM models for major brands, therefore, until recently, was known mainly among the advanced music fans. But times change, and now Dunu has its own range of headphones that offer quality sound at an affordable price, not yielding even expensive solutions.

Headphones Dunu DM-380

Dunu often experimenting with drivers: for example, the DN-2000 — hybrid model, which provides the dynamic emitter for low frequencies, and two reinforcing at mid and high frequencies. And Titan 5 has implemented dynamic driver with a titanium diaphragm. Our guest today, Dunu dm-380is a kind of intermediate solution: in one case, they’d put three of the radiator, but dynamic, each of which is responsible for its own frequency range.

The box looks expensive and solid

Dunu has always paid much attention to the packaging and scope of delivery in the case of DM-380 also decided to keep level. Box of cardboard with the logo Hi-Res certification hides neatly folded earphones and pouch underneath.

In case placed replaceable ear pads

In the kit you can also find two sets of ear cushions in different sizes — a trifle, but nice. The nozzle is made of silicone and have quite a wide hole to wear it comfortably.

The case is soft to the touch, smells good

I more fitting for the ear pads that were already worn

Special attention deserves the case. From done of artificial leather, one side logo Dunu, and with another — push-button clasp for a secure fit.

Of course, this is not a complete set, like Titan in 5, where the manufacturer seems to be the only elephant in the box is not put, but everything you need is there. I not only had the foam ear cushions with memory foam; cable clips are also there, but it is not needed in the next section I’ll tell you why.


Design headphones different from what we have seen in earlier models from Dunu. The body is made of metal and plastic, due to the fact that the latter is slightly transparent, you can see all three of the dynamic emitter. Headphones “ending” of the sound channel, where there is a special ledge to the ear pads were kept securely.

The logo resembles an expensive engraving

The duct and the drivers — if you look closely, you can see

In General, to the appearance of headphones no questions: all very nicely done (in gold, but not “expensive-rich”), there are relief etched and the logo of the manufacturer.

The cable is made mostly of silicone, but there are metal inserts on the divider and near the connector. Made of metal and set of three buttons that allows you to adjust the volume, put the track on pause or answer a call.

The buttons are recessed, it is convenient to find by touch

The plug is gold plated

Why no cable clips? As a rule, she fixes the microphone effect; and since dm-380 fit behind the ear, she is almost guaranteed to “kill” such artifacts. Yes, behind-the-Ear mount someone might not appreciate, but headphones specially designed to stay and not fall out. Plus it is safer for megadriver models where you need to keep planting density on the go.

As for landing, do not approach these headphones can, perhaps, only owners of the smallest ears. Weight is evenly distributed along the outer part of the ear, and the comfort and sound can be compared to premium devices. Headphones are very high quality and will last as long as possible.

Behind-the-ear fit might not suit everyone, but very comfortable


To listen used the following equipment:

  • FiiO M7
  • Apple MacBook Pro Retina 2012
  • Apple iPhone XR
  • Recording high-resolution Lossless-formats

We can say that headphones sounds like a classic dynamic. By separating the drivers, there is a clear emphasis on low frequencies and subtle blurring of textures, but with the clarity and sharpness is no problem. Supply is very soft across the entire frequency range.

AFC Dunu DM-380

The bass from the DM-380 pleases speed characteristics, MIDs good unconditionally. Low distortion is allowed to achieve a very clean and neat supply, which is typical of headphones high level. Emotional elaboration of images, transmission of nature of the tools, these headphones are able just fine. The imaginary scene is well designed, pleasing and width, and depth. The upper frequency faultlessly.

Through the use of only dynamic transducers there is no contrast, characteristic of hybrids (if part of the range differs from the other study). The tuning is there, but very neat and uniform, so the headphones can be called a universal genre. Although, in my opinion, they are more suitable for rock or vocal jazz than to electronic music, where often a important study of the smallest details.

Some tracks for example.

The Weeknd — Lost in Fire.

These headphones work well bass, so fans of hip hop will definitely come. Including compositions of this canadian who, despite a love of auto-tune, shows his track deep and rich bass.

Imagine Dragons — Birds.

Tireless “dragons” continue to be at the peak of his career. One of the main punk bands of the new Millennium, not retreat from signature frenzied guitar head, and that combination is very well suited DM-380.

Louis Armstrong — La Vie En Rose.

Jazz musician, influenced the development of jazz, was born in the poor black district of New Orleans. But the love of music and perseverance helped him succeed, and now each of us knows and loves his husky bass, which reveals the other side with these headphones.


Can not but rejoice that Dunu continues to offer different options for a good sound at an affordable price and with excellent quality. So, dm-380 costs around 4 000, and it is a very good price for such a combination of design, features and sound. Perhaps we should use the fact that while the name of this manufacturer is not familiar to the masses, because when it happens, you can add a margin for the brand.
