post #106 of 758

Nice to read yet another user impression on these. I still haven't received a item shipped email or any reply regarding my inquiry from Lend Me Ur Ears as of yet. frown.gif Hopefully I get some answers soon.

post #107 of 758
going thru those impressions posted by fellow head fiers, i`m sort of sold to try these tiny fellows. i have a feeling it may share a similar SQ with my first entry level iem - M1.

on the side note, while i was surfing the chinese websites abt VC02, i came across some interesting news. it was mentioned in one of the webpage, by this month, vsonic will release a new model/tweak of GR02 called GR02 Vintage, limited to 3333 pieces. Price not known yet. furthermore, they will release another tweak of GR02 known as GR02 limited edition. Only 99 pieces worldwide, might price at 2399 RMB.

Oy. They're doing it again, with the world's most confusing names. Having a $400, $40 and god knows what else GR02, a $50 and $100 GR04, which are vastly different, the GR01 at the top, GR02 at the bottom. They really, really need a naming convention, because they create so much confusion that products which should fly off the shelves barely sell (GR04 Flagship) because of the confusion with an inferior product (GR04 Classic).

Yes, their naming convention needs improvement confused.gif! In any case, I wonder what are the tweaks like and how would the GR02 Vintage / GR02 Limited Edition sounds like. The latter is too costly to even consider! 2399 RMB! blink.gif Wonder if there are any brave and deep pockets head-fiers who are willing to dive in and try when they are released!  

 

For those who can read Chinese, here is the Chinese version of the news released by Vsonic CEO that was lifted from one of the webpages:-

 

201212月份,VSONIC声学将推出两款 GR02的衍生产品,一款为GR02 Vintage即复古版,在5年前R02的声音基础上进行修改调音,限量3333条。目前售价暂未确定,上市后3个月左右将由新款GR02替代。另一款为特别订制的GR02 Limited Edition 即限量版,限量99条,售价为2399。"

 

Enough of side tracking, are there any more impressions about VC02?

Google translate turns that into "In December 2012, VSONIC acoustics will launch two GR02 derivatives, a retro version for GR02 Vintage sound based on 5 years ago R02 modify tuning Limited 3333. Currently priced yet determinedabout three months after the listing will be new GR02 substitute another special custom GR02 Limited Edition limited edition, limited edition of 99, priced at 2399 yuan"

Do you have problems with logging in at LendMeUrEars site, as well? Or it's just my particular not-as-expected actions?

For overr a week I can't log in my account, to order a pair of VC02...

Just got the bass edition and it looks so sexy....sound wise amazing bass response for sure espesially the sub bass with the organic bass texture i like,mids kinda sound a little veil now and the treble is nice, not so extended as the original gr07.
post #115 of 758

Just received my pair yesterday, still burning them in but they are sounding pretty sweet thus far. Female vocals are very clear and detailed, there does seem to be a bit of a hiss on certain songs but I'm hoping that goes away after the burn in. Highes and mid's are very clear and precise. Still not able to make a call on the sound stage but currently it seems small than my Silver Bullets but that may change with more burn in.

 

The bass on these babies are pretty unreal, for such a small dinky IEM, they are able to produce quite a bit of bass, not the deep bass from a Senn IE8 but its pretty darn good. I dont think a bass head would find them sufficient though. Its a very good all rounder and punches well beyond its price point.

 

More thoughts to come after burning them in over the weekend.

Thanks for your out of the box impression. I'm still waiting for a reply from Lend Me Ur Ears asking if mine have been shipped out yet or not.. My order status still says "processing" and I haven't received a shipped email so I assume they haven't shipped yet. It's been 5 days now and I still haven't received a reply to my email inquiry.

As the MH1-C (which I own) is a bass heavy IEM with great sub-bass response, I'd say they should be almost the opposite, as the VC02 is tuned for better midrange and treble response, with a much more balanced sound signature than the MH1-C...

It wasn't the exact same thing, as the words and phrasing were different. What I said is no lie, but my apologies for trying to answer your question...
