It really depends on what you're after. The VC02 is brighter, clearer, and more balanced while the VSD1S has more bass and a more v-shaped sound signature. The MH1C is bassier, warmer, and smoother than both these. They are all about on-par with each other in sound quality, just different signatures. Keep in mind also that the MH1C remote only fully works with certain Sony Xperia devices.

To me it has pretty big with regard to (mid)bass...while the mids and treble was rather harsh. While the Qjays sounded more balanced and smoother.

The thump was quite surprising for a BA iem tbh.

Quite opposite to your views. Can Ia sk which tips you listened too? And how you connected it?

 

I don't understand, are you saying the BA100 is better than the q-JAYS? I did note that the BA100 was harsh/edgy at the top and I really don't think it's nearly as good as a q-JAYS.

 

I used the BA100 with generic single-flanges on the outer notch with several sources including the HM-901 with IEM card and Minibox card (my favorite).

I dont really understand those sound sinagtures,sorry for being so noob. Within that price range, can you just tell me which IEM is best for classical music,(symphony, violin, and especially piano, i love Chopin), anime songs, frank sinatra (songs that focus more on the voice of the singer, without heavy background music)

Thank you for the remainder, as I look up about it, Mh1c remote does not suit with my nexus 4.

Thanks!!

Hi IjokerI!

Have you heard Sennheiser CX 300 II ? Can you give me a brief comparison between that and Yamaha eph-50?

 

Thanks

both are bad options ., if you are after bass you can go for ha-fx1x for as cheap as $10 or you can opt for ha-fx40 for $25 .

joker , i wonder how much will you give the xba-1 for its sound quality .

post #13162 of 14595
Need to ask you all an important question. Nowadays technology wise, everything is evolving rapidly. Computers at least double their speed each year, get upgraded with better more efficient chips, as well as high resolution screens along with improved battery life. In 5 years from now they will be at least 32 times as fast as they are today (2*2*2*2*2=32) and there are likely to be even more advanced technological breakthroughs, maybe even holographic displays, who knows.

As for speakers, have we (as in manufacturers) yet to scratch the surface in terms of innovation and advancement i.e will audio equipment have improved in 5 years the same way computers will or have the concepts of acoustics in producing sound already been firmly grasped and there is only room left for minor improvement. Are advancements in sound dynamics incremental (i.e JH Freqphase) or is the relatively new Freqphase addition revolutionary? Plus, maybe IEMs or headphones are outperforming the other?

To summarise, are speakers constantly improving with time or have the limits of reproducing sound quality already been reached?

     may be we dont have much space and may be we dont know how to set a better target , it will improve but not like computer's processing power ( is it multiplying like that ? ) ?

It's quite difficult to recommend an IEM going only my the music genres you listen to - even among listeners of a single genre there are different preferences. Example: some love the Etymotic ER4 for classical while others claim that it can't possibly reproduce the sound of a contrabass with sufficient authority.

 

I think the VSonic VC02 would be a very good introduction to balanced sound, if you can deal with its somewhat annoying cables.

I haven't tried the mkII CX300. From what I understand it should be very similar to the old CX400, but I haven't tried that either.

I only had a short audition with it and brought just my Meelec A161P and VSonic GR07 for comparisons, nothing in the $50 price range. I thought it sounded pretty good but not as good as either of those.

I recommend buying Audio Technica IM70 which focuses more on the vocals and has a special timbre on accoustic instruments.
