Absolutely, it will...VC1000 is so small and so comfortable for prolonged use, and the use of foam tips will smooth out the treble, and slightly enhance the bass.

I assume Sure Olives will work well?

you need to stretch the stem first, or give it a push and shove, but yes you can fit it

Sup' guys. New head-fier here. I am on a very tight 150$ budget. I have an Mh1c for bass sessions, a gr06 for Mids listening and a sunrise xcited (my faves) for more critical listening. I am looking to upgrade my from xcited monitors and I need help choosing between the r-50 and the vc1000. I listen to every genre out there, and my fav sound sig is what the xcited has. (A good compromise between slight balance and neutral). Thanks in advance.

The vc1000 is for you or maybe the astrotec ax-7 that no one have smily_headphones1.gif

Received my pair of VC1000 this afternoon so time for some initial thoughts.

 

Previous IEM: S4, X10, R-50, M6, and now VC1000

 

They are very well rounded IEMs, they sound very nice to a large range of genres (including my favorite EDM).  While not bass heavy by any stretch, there is enough to be at my liking.  They soundstage is not the largest I've heard, but definitely not the smallest.  Sibilance is not an issue.  Pretty quick response but definitely slower than the R-50.  Could listen to them forever without fatigue.

 

Compared to R-50: Technically less superior sounding (remember, these are a fun sig) but not terribly far behind.  Package and accessories are a huge plus over R-50.  About twice the amount of bass, but still very tight a quick.  I think as a whole package the VC1000 are better.  I  think they are MUCH more durable, better for the average user, and SUPER comfortable.  Color is really a bit strange of the pieces though.  Definitely a keeper.

 

EDIT: I'd like to add that cord noise is quite a lot with cords straight down if moving, but over the ear seems to work quite well and completely eliminates cord noise.

Good to see that you enjoyed it mate, they are definitely a keeper, and I do also much prefer them over R-50

I think I'll be buying a pair as I've sold the R-50.

@~ Cloudycloud, I'm not sure what your source is but they also pair very well with Colorfly C3 for $100.

So far I have tried them with a MBP Early 2011, new iPad, and iPod Nano (old square one).  Not really a need at all for an amp, but it is noticeably fuller when I use my C&C BH etysmile.gif

 

EDIT: I'm using Out 1, GC Low, LF off, SF off.

Yep same here, fantastic straight out of my 2012 MBA, but even better out of C&C...

Seriously loving these VC1000's.  Officially my favorite IEM yet.  Only knock on them is the cable noise when wearing straight down with movement.

post #148 of 287
Told you they were worthy, I find them very relaxing for laying down at night with Rocco BA or C3.

Mine are only a loan though, for the price they punch well above that.

Enjoy.

Just curious what tips people are using out of the ones provided with the VC1000?
