 Ah, sorry... misread his post. Do the Shures sound similar to the Yamahas? So many mixed reviews on them. Hard to know if I'd like them considering you mention the Klipsch X10, and I HATED those things.. my god, I hated them. Way too bright for my ears.
 Ok, but I didn't say SHH. I have the SHE3575 (has mic) and the SHE3590 (no mic). Anyway, these are ok(ish) for electronic music (and maybe hiphop? i dunno, don't listen to it), but they absolutely SUCK for any kind of rock or metal. They exaggerate snare drums and guitars to the point where my ears are begging me to take them out. Kinda disappointing because I like to listen to electronic AND metal while in the gym.. I get sick of just listening to electronic the whole...
So I mistakenly ordered the ones with an inline mic/control, thinking they'd be the same. Model SHE3575. Well, I wasn't all that impressed. A little bit sibilant and upper mids are too forward. Soundstage is also quite small, though sub bass extension was pretty nice.. overall though, not an enjoyable listening experience for me.   Since they were slightly out of balance, the left ear being a little louder, I contacted the seller for a replacement. I asked them to send...
They're the same price as the Yamahas. Nowhere near $40.
Thanks and good luck to you on your search as well. The Yamahas I found improved a lot from burn-in, though I know some people don't believe in it, I listened to them new out of the box, then left music playing for a few days before listening to them again, and the sound was much better after that.   The old version of the Sonys are available on eBay for $20, but I'm not sure if they'll work properly without an adapter? I don't really care about the controls, so if music...
Yeah, that's my problem with treble as well. I prefer smooth/laid back/warm/dark upper mids and highs... anything even remotely forward, I can't stand. Anything that can be described as "sparkly" or "crisp" means I'll hate it.   This is why I loved the sound of my Yamaha EPH100.. but I destroyed mine unfortunately trying to get the freakin driver to stop cutting out. I should have just left them alone and sent them in for warranty replacement... can't afford to replace...
Thank you for the feedback. If you happen to get the VSD1, please post your thoughts on them vs the Sonys.   I'm still searching for a set of the Sonys, as I really think I'll be happy with them.. so far, no luck finding them though.   Are the controls on the Sonys noticeably heavy, do they tend to tug on the earpieces when moving around?
Anyone know if foam tips would round out the treble a bit? I'm finding the upper range just a tad too bright.
My favorite IEMs to date have been the Westone UM3X and Yamaha EPH100.   I love bass, but prefer sub-bass over mid bass. I prefer neutral midrange, I find forward midrange to be 'blaring' and obnoxious, especially when I listen to metal in the gym. I prefer laid back highs. Anything that can be described as sparkly, crisp, etc, I'm sure I'll hate. Although I do appreciate clarity, good instrument separation, airiness, wide sound stage, etc.   I listen to a lot of...
Or is there a new version of these available that sound the same?
