Premium Knowles Balanced Armature Unit
DUNU has been opting premium balanced armature drivers from Knowles in its hybrid IEMs for a long time now. Knowles is actually one of the well-renowned brands for BA units worldwide. The BA unit here in the EST112 presents the users with refined mid-high frequency responses. It produces lovely vocals with natural tonality and texture.
High-Performance Sonion EST Drivers
Long gone are the days when EST drivers were only being used in high-end headphones. The technology is advancing at a rapid speed with its implementation in many flagship IEMs. DUNU has implemented two high-performance EST drivers from Sonion (a highly renowned audio driver manufacturing brand). They present a smooth, elegant, and well-detailed high and ultra-high frequency response with the EST112.

DUNU has designed an all-new shell package that encapsulates the re-engineered driver circuitry. The ear cavities are made with a high-precision machining process using lightweight and durable aluminum alloy material. They are finished with scratch-resistant gunmetal anodizing and feature polished stainless steel faceplates for a simple yet timeless design.
