I need to get intimate before I can write up a real review...wink_face.gif

 

...though I short, I can say this, it is AWESOME!! - signature is 'fun' instead of 'monitor' (basically different signature to it's GR range...), slightly mid centric, bass impact is big for BA and extends well (up to just before sub-bass territory), treble is slightly laid back, though pretty bright, and I can sense a little sibilance on some tunes...

 

the most accurate way to describe how it sounds (after 12 hours) is...

  • an improved version of Klipsch X10
  • how will UE700 sounds if it has forward mid

 

more detailed review coming up...

I haven't heard GR01...direct comparison with GR07, I like GR07 more as it has better extension top to bottom, but I can see some people prefer VC1000 due to its fun signature...

 

FYI - microphonics is pretty bad if worn cable down...

That is interesting as this was a problem that a decent amount of people complained about with the R-50s (same Knowles dual ba drivers I believe).  Many people, myself included, were able to help rectify this issue with different tips.  If you get a chance, try out the VC1000 with sure olives, of sony hybrids, or comply tips... those seemed to be commonly agreed upon improvements for the R-50 sibilance.

The size of the nozzle limits what tips will fit to it, none of the comply fits (too big for 100, too small for 200, Comply had 150 in the past but I believe they don't make it anymore) - the sibilance is really not that bad, so it's never been an issue for me...

If the nozzle is like the one in the VC02, you can use Comply 400 series tips with the rubber core mod, just like with the VC02/GR07...

I can fit the olives with a bit of push and shove, won't bother with the mod (cos I don't know how haha...tongue_smile.gif), just trying to spend as much time with her as possible...

It's a rather easy mod.

Just get a pair of Vsonic tips you'll never use, say ... super small, cut the stem off and place it on VC1000 then your preferred tip over that.

You don't need to cut the tip off at all. Just put on the tip in reverse, then peel back the flange like you would a banana skin. The core will be exposed, allowing you to use the other tips.

You don't neeeed too, but it's much neater cosmetically if you do, plus it's very important not to have any of the stem pass the nozzel effecting the sound, so you cut the stem to size first.

The end result is much neater than having a backwards peeled banana condom placed over your earpiece visually and also can be made to size.

Lol!

 

Yeah, mine's the budget option if you don't have dispensable tips.
