Size wise the complys are the same as the vsonic ones, but the foam of the comply is softer, and doesn't expand as quick making them easier to put in. Sound wise I thought the vsonics were really bassy, but not so much the comply. Could be because of the softer foam. Or maybe I'm just imagining it:o. Now I just need to find the sweet spot for the left nozzle.

Cheers

 

   no , complys do suppresses bass , it works really nice on my H1's bass , it was still slightly boomy even after 150hrs of burning , but with complies , now its tamed and has better decay .

the T130s are specifically for the phonak line of phones (at least I haven't seen any others that use them). They are only available in the 1 style too, which is fine for me. I'm gonna have to stock up now that I got 2 phones that can use them (and before they get discontinued too). Also cheaper to buy directly from comply, than from 3rd parties (comply $20 for 5 pairs, others $20 for 3 pairs).

If I could only find out why I never got any hybrids all questions will be answered.

Cheers

That's what I figured, except I really didn't notice a big difference between the comply and the silicone on the pfe. Plus to me the vsonic foamie seem to be even bassier than the vsonic silicones. Not actually muffled so I dont think the ends are getting closed off, just that the bass sounded more forward.

Now with the complys the sound is more along the line of the pfe, but with some more bass impact/authority that I would expect from a dynamic driver. I had no real complaints bout the bass on the pfe, just wanted a little mo punch while still staying clean and tight.

Cheers

    exactly !!

Joker, since you've heard the VSD1/VSD1S, BA200 and Fidelio S1/S2, do you plan on putting them on your comparison table?

post #12786 of 14181

Hey joker, I've seen your impression on the VSD1(S) and you seem to be quite fond of them. I would just like to know if there are any other earphones that are either better or worth considering in the $50 and under category. I know the VC02 is quite nice - do you have a preference between the 2?

post #12787 of 14181

Please forgive me if you have already addressed this topic (I couldn't find anything by you on this), but what is your impression of:

 

MEElectronics M-Duo ...

 

 

Thank you.

Unfortunately the EPH-100 I reviewed was a loan and I don't have it anymore but I provided the best comparison I could from memory here: http://theheadphonelist.com/headphone_review/rha-ma750-ma750i/#comment-2521

I am currently using klipsch image s4 and i am willing to upgrade to something with more bass
I listen to hip hop (eminem) most of the time
i am using fiio e10 as my amp and listen to music throught it most of the time
After reading your reviews i came down to three iems


Velodyne vPulse
Nuforce NE-700X / NE-700M 
HiSoundAudio Wooduo 2


From what i read HiSoundAudio Wooduo 2 looks good for me

 

 

I just wanted to know your recommendation for me at a $110 budget

my main focus is bass like klipsch 4 but much better

 

The Wooduo 2 has mostly deep bass (subbass) and I haven't heard anything with more deep bass than that. You can currently get it for <$80 on ebay and amazon - I haven't heard anything that can beat that for bass.

Yeah, definitely. The problem/delay is not putting them in the table - it's writing up the full reviews to go with the ratings.

I don't think there are any I would say are outright better than the VSD1S (unless they match your signature preferences better of course) but there are a lot that are similarly-priced that can at least compete with the VSonics - Sony MH1C, SteelSeries Flux, VC02, MOE-SS01, and the yet-to-be-reviewed Fidue A63. I prefer the VSD1(S) to the VC02 - it has a warmer and more full-bodied sound. Its bass has more impact but is a little softer of note. It's also more sensitive than the VC02. The VC02 on the other hand is thinner and brighter, with bass that is less impactful but a touch more detailed/textured. I find it to be a bit more balanced overall but also more "analytical" compared to the VSD1(S).

I haven't heard them. They had them on display at CES this year but they didn't have a pair out to try.

Thanks for the response. I am purchasing these for a friend who typically listens to things along the lines of mainstream "rockish" and pop music such as one direction (sigh) and one republic. They also enjoy the occasional alternative rock such as coldplay or muse so I am on the fence about whether I should be getting the VSD1 or VSD1S. This is admittedly their first venture into decent earphones so they really don't know best but they do say they enjoy a fair bit of bass.

Hey |joker|,

I'm happy you're still keeping up here. I remember referencing your threads when I first joined head-fi. You were sort of a north star for me, and it's great to see that your passion still hasn't died out.

I'm intrigued by the Custom Art Music Two, but as you haven't reviewed them obviously, I'll frame this inquiry in terms of the Music One.

Right now I'm commuting with a pair of HD 25 Amperiors, and wanted something that didn't skin my ears by the end of the night. I know it's difficult to compare CIEMs to On-ears in general, but do you think, in a general sense, the Music One would be an upgrade? I find myself desiring a detailed yet warmish signature with a natural treble, so sound signature won't be an issue, I think. I'm just concerned if the small CIEM drivers are as/more capable than the Sennheiser's bigger drivers in terms of resolution and impact.

If you feel more comfortable comparing to another IEM, I currently have a Brainwavz B2 in my possession for reference as well. These are great analytical IEMs, but too thin-bodied and the bass is a bit lean. I hope the Music Ones would retain their detail while providing more richness, body, and impact as well.

 

I'm assuming both comfort and isolation are no-brainers here as well.

 

EDIT: Almost forgot, will these be fine out of my Iphone 5? 

 

Thanks so much.

The differences between them would be too small for a beginner to notice so I don't think you have to worry about that. Keep in mind these aren't basshead earphones - they have good impact but they're not at the level of something like a Beats Tour or Monster Turbine.

Impact - no. The small driver just can't move as much air as a headphone. Resolution - yes. The HD25 might appear to have a small advantage there thanks to its sharper/crisper treble but for a less bright IEM the Music One does very well.

 

The Music One is definitely not as lean/thin/bright/clinical as the B2. It's not very critical of source either, possibly because there's no crossover. Not sure if this holds true for the Music Two because I think it's a dual-driver (can't remember for sure right now).

Why isn't the Etymotic Research ER4S listed beside the chart?

 

Are they better overall than the SE 535?

The ER4S is review number 2A1.

 

I think the Etys are more accurate overall than the SE535 but whether they are “better” will depend on your needs and wants. They differ in both sound signature and form factor by a fair amount.

post #12794 of 14181
Any chance of adding the Shure's SE846's too?

Thanks for the reply!

 

I want accurate transparent sound. Like a studio monitor. Also the SE535 are not as comfy as i would like. I have never gotten used to them even though i've had them for about 3 years now.
