Thanks for your reply, joker. I should clarify, I am NOT looking for something that necessarily resembles the VSD3S, at all. I was just using it as my most familiar/recent IEM reference point, sonically. Essentially, the main thing I didn't like about the VSD3S was the midrange recession/V-shaped profile, and also the slightly overbearing low-end, from time to time. Do you have any more recommendations now? I'll look at the IM02, thanks.
