You mean "prizes" lol. I feel like dsnuts has been around, manipulating my brain and sending my buying impulses into ridiculous overdrive!

But yes, I have high hopes for those VSD1's! I have a feeling that they will punch way above their weight (like the Basso's), and it will be interesting to compare them all.

Tell me about it. I've been lurking this thread for the past 4 months trying to resist the temptation to login because I knew I would buy something, and what happened? The second I login I decide to buy the 385's and be a test dummy. It's not only headphones either. I ordered a pair of Supra Vaider's that arrived today. So it seems my shopping spree has just begun. Most-likely buying the VSD1 tomorrow after I get the 385s.

Impressions on Supra's. Very thick with great appeal. The build quality is top notch. You can definitely feel how sturdy this pair is. The sole is very thick and luscious. The material is well stitched . The tongue is enveloping. The pair has great width and depth. On the negative they are a bit heavy footed--probably due to the thick construction--and a bit rigid. However, I have high expectations after the burn-in process is complete.

They are great and the build quality is admirable. From what I recall, I really love the bass on those, very tight! BUT I can't listen to it for longer sessions. Quite fatiguing after an hour or two. That's why I don't think it comes close to the DX210. I can listen to them Bassos for hours and hours...

It's awesome though that you are taking one for the team with the 385's. At this point in my spree, I don't know if I would prefer that you love them or that you hate them lol!

Not only are they easy to listen to, they are enjoyable to listen to. They seem well balanced to me, with a nice, full and engaging sound. The bass is wonderful and controlled, the mids seem to be a bit more forward than neutral (ie engaging), and the treble also seems sparkly and detailed but without being fatiguing. Very enjoyable!

That's exactly my experience. Well said, Wayne!

I cannot emphasize enough how excellent they sound now. The harshness is completely absent. The mids and highs are clear, airy and beautiful. At slightly above medium volume the bass was not painful and the whole sound signature was exceptional.

 

I particularly enjoyed some Vangelis tracks from Blade Runner as well as many other genres from classical to Hendrix. I'm not as skilled at describing sound characteristics as some other headfiers. The phrase "depth of field" kept coming to mind. All the instruments and vocals were beautifully clear and airy.

 

These tips transform the CKN70 IEMs into a shockingly improved listening experience. If the comply tips didn't tame them for you I would strongly suggest giving the Philips tips a try. The IEM itself is under $10 and comes with S,M and L tips. I found that the medium size fit me best.  ...will look forward to impressions from other folks.

Thanks digirato and everyone else who have chipped with their respective finding in regards to the tip choices. Will try all the tips suggested here.

Oh look what the postman brought me, 4 weeks after ordering!



Better late then never I guess, still doesn't set a very good experience ordering anything from the US.
post #10048 of 32858

Blame customs... they seem to have upped their interference over here too, as anything from the US takes longer than it used to (2-3 weeks instead of 1-2).

On another note, my Zero Audio Carbo Tenore has been shipped today by Tenso. biggrin.gif

Great work! I've posted my initial thoughts on the thread...

Looking forward to more reviews on the Bassos and initial impressions on the Tenore's.
