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?
Does anyone know where I can still order these (for a decent price too)?
I've tried the 8320. Had a few pairs actually... kept getting imbalanced drivers. The sound was ok for some music, but wasn't versatile enough, and the fit was terrible no matter what tips I tried, I couldn't get a proper seal with them.
Thank you, appreciate it.
