Polarity of drivers are already reversed out of box. When you reverse them once it is like you re-reverse.

To connect them right see if small holes on the housing are facing up when worn straight down.

Interesting. VC02 is great value, and I hope fixing the polarity makes it even better. As it is, EX600>=VC02>SE215>S4i from my auditions. For a 40 buck earphone with great usability, thats brilliant value. I thought the GR06 was more romantic, mid-centric and grainier. Grainier though, more intimate and slightly deeper. But VC02s are a tad more revealing.

Im quite sure you'll like the sound better by fixing the polarity. smily_headphones1.gif You'll also like it better after 100hours. This one is a gr06 beater even out of the box.

Burn in does improve the sound.

post #322 of 758
No It doesn't, data indicates its a myth at least for this iem.what's going to help is insertion depth. With time you'll be able to get it deeper if not accustomed and it will sound better

^^^ LIES
post #324 of 758
Inks is correct. There are no changes at all, but deeep insertion gives you a moderately smooth and revealing sound. Stock biflanges work very well in this regard.

BTW, how does one clean the filter and housings of the VC02 - by the normal way? Can the stock tips be washed?
post #325 of 758
I guess so^ but I highly believe in burn in so that's my opinion and I really noticed that burn in does work in reality. Just my .02¢ biggrin.gif
post #326 of 758
Touchy topic, this burn-in. Let's agree to disagree :P...

Nevertheless, this does not detract from the fact that the VC02 is an impressive IEM both in SQ alone and as a package. Let's hope prominent reviewers like Joker and ClieOS pick this up soon... The microdriver worries me though, regarding longevity, but my worries may yet be unfounded.

Believing in it won't change the reality. Goint by memory of what you though it sounded like before is simply not credible. When an IEM is placed in a controlled environment, change is not there, human error and bias changes sound.

I agree with Inks, but let's agree to disagree. If your preconditioned bias (positively) enhances your enjoyment of the IEM, that's great for you! And let's not forget how well-engineered the VC02 is.

^^^^^ Why do you think Vsonic placed that 100hour burn-in notice tag there if it does not serve any purpose? :) anyways haha I'm loving VC02's from day1, it made me forget about all my other budget to mid tier iems :) I do believe that dynamic drivers really improve in time, unlike armature based iems that doesn't need much burn-in. A myth or not there's no denying that VC02's are absolute beast for the price.

Sadly, that note just makes them loose credibility, they have no proof for the claim and it has in fact been refuted. Maybe they fell for the IEMs high acoustic output impedance and though it was a burn-in phenomenon. Or they're really clever and know the bias that occurs once a person is led to believe this.
