I was leaning towards the standard MTs but have read a lot lately about the VBs. Two things scare me about the VBs however: harsh highs and a lack of isolation. I imagine that since the MTs are sealed, they'd have better isolation, and have heard their upper end is not harsh. It looks like strain relief and wire quality might not be so good on the MT on the other hand.
Has anyone heard both of these? When it comes down to it, the one with more bass will be the winner for me.
I appreciate any advice and apologize for yet another "bass" thread on this forum. Please try to keep the discussion to these two IEMs unless you have physically compared something else to these and can say they are better. I'm trying to stay under $100 which would mean finding the MTs on sale if I go that route.
