post #9691 of 14821
I am a noob here, I just joined about a month ago and I want to say thank you for the reviews on all of the headphones. This will help me a lot in making some informed decisions. I never knew this place existed until recently and it is top notch!!! I look forward to talking to you guys and once my probationary period is over I will update my profile to include my gear. Although it is very,very modest compared to what you guys are sporting!!! Take care All and jam on!

Well, I guess mostly I would like a more open soundstage and probably just a different sound signature.  I don't want something super analytical, something with a good sound that makes music interesting, kind of like the UM3X does, but a different flavor, if that makes sense.  This is for enjoying music, not for picking it apart.  I'll use my studio monitors for that.

I would go with the 1964-V3, then. It's quite solid for an entry-level custom with a colored but not downright unbalanced sound signature. I think most would qualify it is a fun-sounding set and not at all a reference monitor.

I really want to read your review on another high-end CIEM that can totally surpasses Miracles! 

:)

Hope you will do it in the near future.

After reading your review I'm still deciding between VSonic VC02, VSonic GR06 and Astrotec AM90.
Due to the price of these IEMs and my growing curiosity towards this hobby, I'm thinking about buying two of them to have a chance to try different sound signatures.
I'd like one of the IEM to be a neutral one, so that I can start appreciating a more natural sound, but the other one could be a little more "fun".
What do you think I should go with?

Go for the VC02 as the neutral one - I think it is noticeably better than the AM-90 and other SR-based single-armature earphones. For the more fun one I would get something v-shaped, maybe a GR02BE or Audio-Technica CKM500.

I will carry the VC02 and GR02 BE on a plane and they are a great compliment.

VC02 vs RE0? etysmile.gif

 

My way old RE0 (a replacement for a pair that died) are failing. I have better IEMs in general now, but since ordering the VC02 I haven't bought anything as straight up analytical

I haven't been able to find the B2's anywhere. Are they still in production?

They are still available in mp4nation

I don't think they will be out of production anytime soon

Any plans on reviewing the EarSonics SM64 V2? :)

I have the RE-ZERO but not the RE0. I thought the ZERO was slightly more spacious than the VC02, the midrange was a bit more natural-sounding compared to the thinner VC02, and the treble was smoother and more refined. Definitely not a big difference overall, however, and much smaller than it should be considering the price difference.

There are 3 competitors for the top spot that I've heard so far. No additional info at this time tongue.gif

I think so. I wouldn't panic if they are not on listed on Mp4nation - they have been known to remove products that are out of stock from their site and then add them again later.

Nope, couldn't get hold of Earsonics.
