Well, it seems that Vsonic's CEO is kinda keeping things under wraps lately - has has even stopped bashing on other Chinese manufacturers and their products LOL. Honestly I'm more excited about the VSD9 with its hush-hush stuff inside than the VSD7 but I guess will just have to wait and see what they have done coz they are surely taking their sweet time.

Vsonic's CEO probably ruined LMUE's profit with his announcements of the new products 6 months ago and making LMUE sell the gr07s at such a discount expecting the new VSonic line will hit the market sooner. The gr07 classic was delayed 3 months and we have zero information aon what happened with the portable and full-size cans Vsonic said they would release in September and October. They just take their time and don't care at all about the ETA on any of their products and probably Vsonic's CEO realized he should stop teasing or announcing stuff that he can't deliver for months after they were expected to hit the market, so that's why he's been quite lately. 

I do remember that he mentioned something about VSonic opening a new factory soon, so they might pick up their game when this happens.

It has landed!! Let's see what AT giveth to us today.

 

 

 

Okay, I will have to check this when I get home (against the CKS1000), but right off the back I have to say I haven't heard an AT iem with a sound this full! This is FULL!! Wonderful height and weight. And it's fuller than the CKM500, but not as syrupy and muddy as the CKM500 is. Plenty of bass and forward mids. The highs there but don't standout as much as the bass and mids to my ears. But the highs are there and its definitely adding clarity to the sound. These sound fantastic out of the box, but I'm expecting so much more from this BIG sound with burn-in. Strings are very full sound (thus living up to "Symphonic" drivers). I'm listening through the DX50. One minute I'm a JVC fanboy, but AT has really fought hard as of late to make me appreciate its sound in universal IEMs. I couldn't see AT downgrading its sound even if it lowered its prices on some of its new releases. Well, AT doesn't disappoint here. The IM70 shoots above its MSRP.

Added very initial impressions on the original post.

And these sound great with the stock tips. I would say bass is just shy of basshead levels, but might be pushed into basshead levels with the right tips. The earphones surprisingly comes with a a set of Complys too.

What's the driver configuration on the AT?

Are these the tips you're using?

I'm about to sell the RE-400 as well due to lack of bass.  I much prefer the Monster Gratitude and Zero Audio Tenore.

Can you compare the IM70 with M200 and other mid-fi stuff you've heard? would be great to know what it is capable of...

Two 8.8mm dynamic drivers, DannBai.But they're like back to back in some type of cylinder. This is kind of like the R3s (well, I don't know if the drivers are firing toward each other of in a different direction. I need to try to translate that better. But it is a dual-driver earphone. Oh, detachable cables!

Yes they are, but there are also those tips with foam  right under the silicon flaps (and over the nozzle shaft) that adds even more bass. The MA750 silicon tips also adds bass.

It will take awhile before I can get to all of those comparisons. I need a good burn-in on the IM70. I can say, however, that the IM70's sound is almost as full as the M200, but not as refined (although it is a refined sounding IEM). I still haven't heard anything $200 or less beating the M200 (or $300). But I must break the IM70 more. The IM70 might be the clear winner forwhat I've heard for $105 or less, but I need more time with it.
