let me guess, they're Vsonic VC1000?

I am not familiar with the SM64. Between the rest of those, the UE 900 is the most accurate. Both the 232 and IQ have more bass and more v-shaped signatures overall.
Aren't they more expensive than the R-50? I'm curious as to why VSonic decided to do another dual BA. The GR01 is decent and is tuned slightly differently from the other ones on the market already.
Anyway, both the VC1000 and Astrotec AX-7 seem to be very well built and priced right so we'll see which one comes out on top.
The IQ has slightly fuller and more impactful bass but also less recessed mids so it really depends on what you're willing to sacrifice. The Ultrasone also has smoother treble with the right tips but of course the issue is that it takes a lot of playing around with the fit to get at its full potential. I actually found even better tips for it than the Ety triples I used in my review - the Westone True-Fit Foams. They are deep-insertion foam tips. Comply doesn't work on the IQ for me but these do.
Well, giving out too many 10/10s makes it less meaningful. But of course the cards will fall where they may.
Yeah good point...I prefer clean, impactful bass, forward, intimate mids, and non-fatiguing treble with low sibilance. Good separation and imaging. A wide soundstage. A warmish sound signature.
