Page 6 – DM010 & Final Thoughts

At 16,800 South Korean Won you might not think these are that cheap but with the current exchange rate that is just £10. I am not used to reviewing anything this cheap and when I have been asked for advice on certain earphones in the price range before I say just get the Sony MH1c. After hearing these I stick with that response. These sound like a £10 earphone, weak bass and lots of splashy treble distinguish the vibe these put out. I actually gave a pair to my mate and he was quite put off by the quantity and quality of the treble so that is something to keep in mind. Beyond sound they are still a £10 earphone, thin flat cables, plastic housing and just the really cool DM tips as an accessory. Maybe their last positive is the inline remote and mic.

Here are their measurements.

Doesn’t look that bad for price, especially channel matching.

Here is all the measurements plotted together.

Blue is DM008, Pink DM010, Red DM200, Purple DM100 and Green DM100E!

A Last Word

I am still a little unsure of where Dynamic Motion sit as a company. Are they just another consumer brand that are upping the prices to fit the market, or are they a truly audiophile company striving to be the best. The looks of the DM008, existence of the DM010 and sound signature of the DM200H all support the former argument. On the other hand the BDD tech and DM100s more analytical sound is something that seems to suit the more discerning enthusiast. Of what I tried none of these earphones made a stand to blow me away or get me talking madly about them. That being said the DM200H shows potential and the DM100 lets me know their advanced use of dynamic drivers can begin to achieve desired effects!

    After reading your review of the Dynamic Motion DM200H, you left me wondering if you have received a faulty unit because what I’m hearing is a direct opposite of your review. If that’s the case you should get another proper set and have another listen because at the asking price of the Dynamic Motion DM200H I couldn’t find anything that sounds better. I actually spent 2 days at E-Earphone Akihabara Tokyo and was prepared to shell out top dollars for a top of the line universal fit IEM. I of course did the usual and started testing all those high end reputable brand multi-drivers IEMs (some up to 12 a side….lol) that cost no less than $1500. After spending time testing all these “high end” IEMs, I was not particularly impressed with any of them as I’ve also owned several good IEMs like FitEar TG334, Etymotic ER4PT, Phonak PFE022 (with grey filter), Phonak PFE232 and headphones like Audeze LCD-X, Sennheiser HD600 amongst others.

    I took a break and then stumbled upon the DM200H and I thought I’d just amuse myself and see how bad a $250 IEM from an obscure brand can sound. In fact I’ve never even heard of a company named Dynamic Motion before so I was merely trying to have a good laugh at it and boy….was I in for a big surprise. The DM200H left me speechless the moment I put the IEM in my ears. I couldn’t even believe what I hear and I have to check with the sales guy if the listed price is correct. In short, it totally blew me away with it’s end to end frequency extension, it’s transient dynamics especially on drums and percussive instruments, it’s wide sound staging, it’s tight and fast bass response, it’s superbly detailed high frequencies that reveal all the micro details that’s been missing from even far more expensive IEMs. I of course bought the DM200H on the spot and the rest is history. Moral of my personal experience is never to judge an IEM based on the obscurity of the company or price. Listen and judge the IEM based solely on the sound quality that it reproduces and put all your other prejudices on brands and price aside.

    • Hi Francis,

      Thanks for piping in with your experience of Dynamic Motion. Firstly I am glad that you found the IEM for you, it seems like it does the trick for you just amazingly and thats the most important thing.

      However as you have already mentioned the way you describe it is certainly very different to what I am hearing, for me there are so many cheaper options that do a lot of things better and I would not want to recommend it. Josh also had the same thoughts so it isn’t just me going mad. Things certainly don’t add up but I don’t think mine were faulty mind you. If one of the channels had a driver failure I would have seen in the measurements and they didn’t sound broken or unlistenable just not up to scratch with the current best in the price range. My pair may have been before the release of the model so maybe they changed a few things based on my feedback, thats the best thing I can think off! I will have to inquire to see if anything did happen.

        Hi Inearspace, it would be good if you can double check with Dynamic Motion if there’s any retuning of the DM200H drivers of the pre-production unit that you received because the description of your pre-production unit is too far off from what me and many of my experienced friends have concluded with. A little bit of changes here and there on the pre-production unit is acceptable but the difference described on your review unit is like North pole and South pole difference from our conclusion of our retail units. I swear me and my friends are not crazy too because some of us are actually professional musicians who does music for a living and one of them is a studio engineer. I hope you can get the confirmation from Dynamic Motion regarding your pre-production unit soon.

    I would appreciate if you could check that they didn’t sell v2 in stores instead of your pre-production unit.
