I've had RE400, but they re too boring for my taste. How GR01 and VC1000 compare to AT CK10? Thanks in advance.

 

The GR01 is a little smoother and more forgiving than the VC1000 but they are quite similar overall. The VC1000 is more similar to the CK10 IMO. I honestly find it hard to justify the extra $$ for the GR01 (and I didn't much like the removable nozzles) so I would go for the more basic VC1000.

There is a ranking at the bottom of the first page of this thread and also an interactive one you can sort and drill down here: http://theheadphonelist.com/headphone-list/

"Bad:

1. Cables, like everyone has mentioned

2. Cannot take high volume: I think my pair of MH1a hasn't burnt in but it seems that the micro drivers in it cannot take high volume. If I listen at low volume (in mid-night quiet living room), it is an absolutely wonderful earphones. But if I turn up the volume a bit to the similar sound level I would normally listened to outdoor, it sounds "bloat". I suppose this might be why some other people think they have got a bad pair of MH1

3. Proper insertion is a must for good sound: The tips definitely play a big part of the MH1a sound tuning."

 

Inks also mentioned earlier in the thread that one of the units he tested had more bass than the other. Manufacturing differences between units can definitely be an issue for lower-end models.

i don't need to see the list (the list give the vsonic are the best of the best  in my budget -50$

 

for ex : vsonic vc02

 

i had seeing them !

 

 

i ask you what do you mean about this 

 

vsonic are the best for you ? are you sure ?

 

xears ? visang ? brainwavz? soundmagic  e10 ?

post #11508 of 13454

According to the sound scores, the VC02 are technically superior. However they are pretty neutral and sound signature preference may result in that perhaps E10 will be better for you. If you don't need boosted bass but instead like accurate bass (by no means lacking bass) and you can take deep inserted iems, VC02 are great price/performance.

ljokerl, i would really like to see where vsd1 stack up in the beautifully constructed "Multi-IEM Review Table"

If you can, can you give me a rough estimate of its score on "Sound"? thanks

your a bit too worried man , easy , dont stress , you can take the s1 , vc02 or vsd1/s , they are the best sounding phones to me , but you can pick any , and the most important question is , what you want from your phone ? bass , mids , treble , isolation ? definition , and so on . everything has its con and pro .

post #11512 of 13454

i don't stress (maybe a little )

 

just i don't like  a most models existing 

its complicated  for the client 

 

 

its for my macbook , and my smartphone, 

 

i search a good sound  a models outsider 

 

i'm doing a choice, finally  i think :

 

soundmagic e10  

The es18 are not recent )

 

or brainwavz m5

(i don't like the look of m1 and pro alpha)

 

or vsonic gr04, vsd1 , vsd1s

 

hat do you mean of ''redgiant a00 and a04"

 

thank you very much for your help 

post #11513 of 13454

post #11515 of 13454

Earlier I had narrowed it down to MH1C, GR02 and E30

Well now I have decided to increase the budget a little and include AM-90 and C-12 in the mix. Also have excluded MH1C solely due to its design and E30 main due to low isolation (and that I have increased my budget).

 

Now I have some queries

Does AM-90 needs an amp ( as its impedance is quite high compared to others I have looked at) ?

Does AM-90 lacks in bass ? How is it compared to GR02 ? Idk why but got such impression after reading this -

 

"The sound signature of the AM-90, while slightly warm, is not unbalanced. Bass depth is decent enough – no match for dynamic-driver sets such as the id America Spark or VSonic GR99 but good for a single armature. Mid-bass impact is a hair lower than that of the A151 but control and detail are similarly good. The low end can be classified as punchy, but also not lacking in body and fullness for a BA-based earphone – seemingly a hallmark of the SR armature."

Should be at least at a level of ES18/E10

 

Also how is VSD1 compared to VC02 ? Just in case I decide to buy from lendmeurears

I guess to date I haven't really heard anything in the price range that would not be a downgrade from the B2 and ticks all of those boxes as far as sound signature goes. 

 

I just want to say that the RE-400 are very prone to equalizing. Besides I don't get how someone can call it boring, the RE-400 sounds really natural and musical - if it's boring then maybe the problem is a source or previous coloured/inaccurate IEM, not the RE-400 itself (?).

BTW |joker| thanks for your review which, after seeing this, finally encouraged me to buy the RE-400. :beerchug:

I only wish it has a mic/remote version, but it's really great to listen to any music.

look at the strain relieves of these :

http://www.amazon.com/JBL-J33-Premium-In-Ear-Headphones/dp/B009IKCFP6/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

i wonder how effective it really is at reducing microphonics.

by the way it appears, it should block all noise, just like a cable clip.

i wonder why is it such a rare thing to see then, and why something like the 1000$ Sennheiser IE800

doesn't incorporate *at least* something like this solution.

interesting!

I normally quietly follow this thread and I think Joker and Suman has helped you. I was going to suggest VSD1 also since I have that and think it's an amazing price-to-performance IEM. But you still want help. I see from your posts from other threads that it seems you're not liking what is being suggested since you don't like VSonic.
So why not go with what you really want and get the Soundmagic e10?
