If not worn over the ear while walking microphonics is too bothersome. I wouldn't recommend.

Damn it, alright thanks. Back to the drawing board. Every good IEM around this price range seems to be over-the-ear.

You can use the shirt clip to lessen the microphonics.

Just bought these earphones out of whim. Problem though is the driver easily separates from the cable like when trying to remove them from my ears. Any suggestion on to keep them intact or lock them maybe?

I did have same problem when I had vc02. You can glue them, but you must be very careful not to cover gold-plated connectors with glue. Separate detachable cables are more expensive than vc02. So when you have cable problem you can buy a new unit instead of a new cable.

post #471 of 760

Gluing them seems a bit drastic though.Anyone tried tf10s cable on these? (Haven't back read yet)

post #472 of 760

You'll probably have the same problem. I believe the pins on the TF10 cable are the same size as the stock cable.

+1. After market cables would cost more or just as much as buying a new set of VC02's.

I straight up can't wear over the ear headphones so it rules out a lot of the stand out IEMs at the 30-60 price range. I'm used to wearing a J-Corded set so I get almost no microphonics at the moment.

 
They'll be used to commute so I'll be walking around a reasonable amount in them (transfers between tubes) and microphonics would drive me up the wall.

They're not that bad. At least for me. If you're familiar with the Monoprice 8320, it has less than that.

The Sony MH1C has s a J-Vord, so you may want to try that.

I have the exact same problem. My left one isn't too bad but the right one is a complete joke. I went from having a pair of Ultimate Ears MetroFi 220 to these. The sound quality on the VC02s is significantly better but the design is laughable. Every single time I take the right ear out, the driver detaches from the cable. It's so bad that if I just hold the cable and shake it a little, the driver falls off. It's really annoying and I'm not sure why they don't have a better mechanism for securing them together. I'd hate to be using these outside anywhere as  I'm positive I'd have lost a driver already. Luckily I just use these in work so I only have to rummage around or under my desk every time the bloody things fall apart.

 

Another gripe I had is that one of the black silicone buds was defective - it basically looked like a dog had chewed it but I couldn't be bothered with the hassle of sending it back to Singapore.

 

Again, really good sound quality for the money but the design to attach the driver to the cable leaves a lot to be desired.

So whilst I wait for my Gr07 MK2s to get back from repair I need something to hold me over. So do I get the Gr06s which are just £10 more or do I get these vc02 that you guys seem to love so much ?

post #478 of 760

Well, it depends on what signature you're looking for. GR06 have more forward mids, which are very nice. The VC02's are more balanced with a tad more bass and more treble detail. Both are very good for the price.

post #479 of 760

i want these! seems like greatvearphonws, and so far i am very impressed with vsonic, now a proud owner of gr02be. feel like an upgrade - anyway more detail, vocals especially.

 

whising for gr07be but budget does not allow - so gr04fe, 06 or these... everyday i decide differently. now im leaning towards 04le or these - but are worried that vc02 lacks to much varmth compared to my 02be,s...however i feel the 02s today lack in clarity...but have exellent bass.

 

plz help me decide.....

post #480 of 760

I think the VC02 will fit the bill perfectly for you. The bass isn't as boomy as the GR02 BE's, mids and the details in the highs are very nice.
