It is only from my experience, i found the braided cable of the R-50 to be prone to a bit of wind noise and the odd thud while with my brief time with the Vsonics, i found the cables so soft and never made a noise. both 8.5 and 10 are very highs scores so this shows neither have problems and i found the Vsonics to be better than r50 in a direct comparison. We are of course going to find differences.
It is also worth noting on the latest version of the graph i do not have the Vsonics at 10.
