VSONIC VC1000 - new dual BA IEM - Info & expectations thread - Page 11

post #151 of 275

Yellow tips for me! I have to say that I really enjoy these stock tips.

 

I am so unbelievably impressed with the VC1000.  I can't ever imagine these IEMs not being a staple in my set to listen with.  I am just so pleased at their overall performance, build quality, and price.  The pinkish color could just use a bit of an overhaul though blink.gif

 

Avicii - X You: Is an awesome example of a song that I think really does well with the VC1000.  EDM'ish but the bass performs exactly like how I would want it to.

Well... this thread is like a desert, but I am loving my VC1000's.  I can't imagine anyone not liking the quality of sound, build quality, and accessories for $120.  They are simply wonderful.

Yep, definitely one of the best, if not the best, at that price range.

Just received my VC1000 in the mailbox today & had enjoying it for the past 6 hours. Finally manage to find an IEM that really suits to my listening, Enjoying every bit of it. Worth every penny. :)

Does anyone have isolation measurements (i.e., broadband isolation like those from Innerfidelity) of VC1000s? Do they isolate well enough for plane/train? Do they isolate as well as ER4s with foam? Thanks!

I don't have exact measurements, but they isolate VERY well.

^ Thanks! Do you think that VC1000s isolate more or less than your R-50s or X10s? Have you tried VC1000s on airplane/train?

Definitely more isolation for me than R-50.

VC1000 have a rather deep insertion. Using Vsonics single flange silicon I was getting impressive isolation.

Thank you! That means VC1000s isolate more than -29 db broadband, which is the isolation level of R50s (per Innerfidelity).

Would VC1000s isolate as well as ER4s (-40 db) then? For airplane, even -40 db isolation is not overkill. I just don't like ER4s' brightness. My custom aceylic IEMs sound good but can only isolate around -30 db, which is barely enough.

Any body know if Comply T-130 as the one use in Phonak audeo can fit VC1000?

I haven't used ER4s.

VC1000 is actually very similar to wearing Klipsch x10, however the VSonic tips go deep into your ear canal and rather thick/oval shapped.

It certainly plugs up my hole pretty well. tongue.gif

These IEMs truly continue to astound me for the price.  Honestly, if you are on the fence about buying them, don't be.  Funny thing is, I almost like the sound of these straight from the source without the B&H attached.  For some reason it seems a bit airier to me (if that is such a thing).

post #163 of 275

Just used these bad boys on my first flight and the isolation was amazing.  As good or better than the X10.

post #164 of 275

I'm glad you found the isolation on these to be amazing. I'm really looking forward to getting an IEM that isolates well for my flights.

Got mine today, listened to them for the past hour and I just wanted to share my first impressions because I loved these guys dt880smile.png

 

Just to make clear, I'm not an audiophile. I'm just a noob which listen to mostly mainstream/pop/rock/r&b music tongue_smile.gif

 

So, I'll just make some comparisons to the R-50.

 

Starting with the bass, they have a little more quantity than the R-50, they're punchier with better impact. I liked much more the bass guitar on these too, it has more presence, along with the eletric guitar that have more weight in comparison to the R-50, which makes them excellent with rock/metalcore/post-hardcore. With the R-50 I had to pair them with E6 (EQ 2).

 

Another thing that I really liked about the VC1000 is that they don't have the same (sometimes) fatiguing trebble as the R-50, it seems that they "roll-off" (I don't know if it's the right term) right before it happens.

 

And now I can also discern with more clarity the sound of the piano and the violin on the background of some songs, which is awesome.

 

Overall they seems quite balanced to me, I guess that their frequency graph should be like a slightly "U" shapped curve. I also think they have a bit more micro detail than the R-50, but maybe it's just my imagination, as I didn't A/B'd both.

 

Soundstage-wise it seems they're a little smaller than R-50, but I'm not sure.

 

For acoustic songs I think I'd still prefer the R-50 over the VC1000 because of bit more forward mids and trebble.

 

 

Editing just to complement that they isolate more and fit waaaay better than the R-50 too (I hate their memory wire), I couldn't wear them while walking.

*I tested the VC1000 only with the double flange tips btw

 

So... I'm pretty happy with them now, I think I won't be looking for another pair for a long time L3000.gif

 

 

Cheers
