Do 600 and 600vi sound same ?

50$! Nice

The cheapest most balanced IEM acoording to ljokerl review's I guess is the Vsonic VC02, althought it's more than US$30.

ljokerl, I'm planning in jumping in the "near US$100 IEM" category soon.

My warm choice will probably be the RE-400, and in the future I may probably get the VSD7, since I liked a lot my VSD3S.

 

But nowadays what do you think would be a better choice for a more balanced sound, the VC1000 or the GR07 Classic (the classic is priced almost the same as the VC1000 so it would be a fair comparison)?

People seen to love a lot the GR07 and don't give a attention to the VC1000, but after reading all the comparisons between the VC1000 and others then I started to think that I would probably like the VC1000 more. You were even able to compare VC1000 with the Noble 4S, what I think is impressive....

 

And why do you think the GR07 got almost all the attention?

 " as you like vsd3s you like bass , you sure you can do with smaller amount of bass ? if yes , vc1000 or say B2 are awesome options , and let me tell you , these phones are really flat , people like gr07 cuz its fun , more engaging with its highs and bass too . these got highs but will fall flat on bass front , these are made like that and if you want bass intact , lose these , re-400 has a bit bigger bass but not big enough . If you too want an engaging sound , i recommend gr07  "

 this is why gr07 got more attention .

I think this answer my question. Maybe I would like the GR07 with more genres of music, althought I really want to get the VSD5 and VSD7 after Vsonic release them, so I would probably have two IEMs with almost the same sound (GR07 and VSD7). So VC1000 would be a better option.

 

RE-400, VC1000, and in the future the VSD7 (VSD5 will do the job for now, since Vsonic should release it soon), I guess this three will cover all the music I like to listen for a reasonable price and good value.

 

Thx everybody :D

Good call, totally forgot about these.

If you get the chance, try out the FX850s with aftermarket cables. My only experience is with TWag and my own 93spec so far.

With the TWag is becomes more quick and edgy whereas 93spec makes it sounds more lush with wider headroom and treble sparkle.

Those who I lent the combo to audition says that its the first time any DD Universals offers such a 'total package' which is similar or even bests any universal BA with the exception of those which tuning were too 'unique' to be compared to.

My JH13FPs is yet to be back from repair but it seems these are the only ones I heard which still bests the FX850+93SPEC in terms of midrange and vocal definitions - A tremendous feat for the pair which costs a lot lesser than the former.

Wow....surprised you found the NarMoo S1 to be a basshead IEM. I have both it and the R1M and find the R1M stomps all over them in the bass department (regardless of which tuning button is installed). Nice review though :D Thanks!

The VC1000 IMO. I really like it for balanced/neutral sound. Not sure why it never got much attention - maybe because it was quite late in the game. There were at least a dozen similar-sounding earphones released before it, from the Audio-Technica CK10 and UE700 to the Brainwavz B2 and Rock-It R-50 (and even VSonic's own GR01). Hard to get excited about yet another, oh-so-slightly different option in the realm of sub-$200 dual BAs.

Ah, so JVC added detachable cables to their flagship. Good stuff.

Probably production differences between units. My S1 has more bass than my R1M on the silver setting:

With the black ports the R1M has tons of bass, though.

Hello, after buying the Etymotic hf5, I am looking for a completely different sound signature. I am looking for the widest soundstahe poossible iem that is bass oriented, but won't completely over power the mids and highs. An audiophile bass iem with the with the widest soundstage basically. My budget is under 150. Thank you for your help in advanced.

Reading your post, I immediately thought GR07 BE for bassy, but still a balanced, controlled, and detailed signature. Has the neutral and crisp tone of the GR07 with enough bass to satisfy EDM, metal, and Hip-hop fans. Not a true basshead IEM, but next to your Ety it will sound like one. This would be my recommendation as it's one I've spent a lot of time with. Soundstage is very wide and out of head for an IEM. You can get it from Amazon for $120.

 

RHA MA750 ($120) and EPH-100 ($130) sound like they'd be something up your alley too, based on other peoples' accounts, but you'd have to let some others chime in on them since I haven't heard them.

Can anyone recommend some cheap IEM that have a really good cable. Since my Vsonic VSD1's broke.

These will just be used when riding, so want something under $20. How are the Meelec Sport-Fi M6?

KZ EDSE one of the best builds and cable I've ever seen on a IEM. Should not cost more than $15 and they sound really good as well.

 

Edit: Actually less that $10 right now :)

120 is not the strongest but its supple , 3900 is stronger but not like R3 , and peter123 has suggested a nice looking phone , cable looks good too , but if you can do with bigger phones , try finding a memorex ie400 , these guys a have externally braided cable .

comes with a pair of comply too , for $12 a comply is like , use it with something else . and the sound is not bad too , but isolation is not the best for sure .
