can the vc1000 be comfortably worn over the ear or does too much of the IEM housing stick out?

 

I'd say keep both cos they have different signature...and they complement each other well...

I don't normally brag too much about anything...but damn I am loving this thing more and more as the days go by...with COMPLY foam tips, the sibilance is no more, and it adds to the smoothness and lushness of the mid...Jason Mraz, Lorde, Ed Sheeran sound so blissfully awesome with VC1000

 

Mochill, have a listen to this...and crank it up brother...make sure you listen to the high res one...fell THAT!!!

Update: about 5hr of use bass became less and treble was enhanced, so now I just put them on the burner and won't use them till the 300 mark.

???

 

They're armature mate...and beside, burning-in while using is better as you will notice the changes, therefore you will appreciate it more...

Not using them is silly. If you don't like the way they sound now, why did you buy them?

post #96 of 275
I bought them because I'm a vsonic fan boy, and I know they are BA , so I'm burning them in because I have high hooe for them and I know they will be awesome after the burn in period biggrin.gif

does the VC1000 have that "slider" thingy that keeps the wires going to each shell in place for tight over-the-ear-use?

you mean ear guide? no they don't because these are meant to be worn cable down, but in saying that, ear guides aren't hard to find...

I think he's asking if the cable has a chin slider

post #100 of 275
No chin slider.

chin slider, that's th term. sorry, didn't know.

so the VC1000 doesn't have this a chin slider, ok.

Outside of the cable the armatures won't burn in much. 50 hours for the cable and you are pretty much done. The change sounds like the cable and they are going towards the bass clearing tightening a bit which shifts the balance towards the treble end. Maybe a slight more of that to come but that should be it. Enough TWFK phones out there to know the general vicinity where the VC1000 sound will end up. Since they don't have tunable filters like the AX-7 or Phonak, etc. and they lost the removable cable of the VC-02, they aren't as versatile as I thought they would be.

thanks.

 

cutting the memory wire improves the fit a lot, and ety tri-flanges (i cut them down to double) improves the iso a lot.

but nothing you can do about the bass except different tips, and that wont affect it too much

post #104 of 275
They improved with only 60hrs on them and now I'm enjoying them alot .bass response is deep tight fast, mids are foward with great micro detail, and the treble is finally settled in to a very nice crisp sound smily_headphones1.gif.
post #105 of 275

thanks. I will probably do that as soon as I've decided whether I want to keep them or not - in order not to hurt resell value.

however, even with bi- or triple flanges, I doubt the R50 will have better isoation than the shure se-215.
