Anyways... S-EM6's sound is a continuation of the Ear Sonics' sound signature. It has all the best futures of SM3 v2 and SM64 combined. What really impressed me was bass, which is really "big" but in a good way it goes really really low and has that fine deep texture. Next thing was soundstage - simply wow - one of the best from Universal IEMs. It has spaciousness and airness of a regular custom IEM. And the resolution - also wow - there are layers and layers of sound. Very impressive.

Highs remind a lot of SM64 - they can sound a bit harsh but overall are quite extended and detailed. Mids are typical for Ear Sonics - close, slightly intimate and a bit thick on the low note and bright and light on higher notes.

These are almost all very positive impressions.

 

What was possibly 'faulty' about the unit you had?  Was it something that was revealed by measurements as opposed to listening or did it correspond with the not-as-perfect highs?

The channel imbalance on measurement was kinda scary. I redid my measurements like 10time to insure it's not my mistake. And also measured some different IEMs to be sure I did everything ok.

This imbalance was not audible at the first listen (I don't know ...excitement etc.) but once measured I knew what to look for and it became pretty obvious what was wrong.

Thanks for these impressions!

How many dB is the imbalance, and at what region?

I don't have access to one at this time.

I'm looking to buy straight barrel armature IEMs so I'm currently looking at VSonic GR01 and VC1000. Its hard to decide - I have AT CK10 which I like but form-factor of theirs is not always handy. I've had RE400, but they re too boring for my taste. How GR01 and VC1000 compare to AT CK10? Thanks in advance.

I wonder why people love or hate Sony MH1C. Maybe member borrego has the answer.

 

Quote from his post (Sony MH1 forum):

..

"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."

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/

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.

post #11503 of 16803

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 #11504 of 16803

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
