post #1186 of 1920

Oh wow, I feel like an assclown. I tried mashing the double dome tip deeper into my ear without improvement (almost causing pain)... when I swapped over the slightly larger than default tip, I could hear it form a "seal" and they sound magical now (only been listening for 10-15 mins, but probably on par or better than my AD700s). Thanks for the advice :)

Well, it's good that you found an answer to your issues so fast. When you have problem with the bass most of the time it's because of fit issues, so you have to get the proper seal. The vsonics also give you superior option to get the fit just right because of the moving nozzles, so once you get the right tips and the right nozzle position you should get all of the great sound and I doubt many people will be disappointed with it.

That just means that you feel like part of the family now - plenty of assclowns around here lol

 

Glad you got the seal worked out :smile:

 Estimated delivery Monday, Nov 18, 2013 - Thursday, Dec 12, 2013

... since I apparently live on the other side of the solar system ;)

 

Well, wonders never cease... the delivery man showed up with them a few minutes ago. Awesome!

 

I'm glad they came with larger black silicone tips instead of just the small pair that came with the VSD1's. I wasn't sure which tips I would end up using, but offhand these large black tips seem to fit well and sound good.

 

Very initial impressions are not disappointing at all - quite the contrary actually. I didn't think that they would sound this good without any burn in, so this is very encouraging.

 

How long should they be cooked for? Any tip suggestions?

^ How do they sound on open box??? On par with your regular VSD1??? Or better and mochill stated. LoL

 

My set didn't change for the better until like 4 days straight of continuous burn-in, or something like that. haha :triportsad:

 

or was it on my 4th/ 5th listen???:rolleyes: I forget.

 

Best is to listen to them once a day after continuous burn-in is my advice, then you can hear gradually how they change/ progress from day to day.

Congrats WAYNE on those lovely new gems of your!!!

 

Let us know how you hear/like them. :)

 

From all that you have stated i can already tell their sound is your ideal signature as well. Never fatiguing yet so bold/ full and engaging.

Odd, but that's exactly what I was just thinking. I was wondering if I was just hallucinating or something. But you just typed it, so it must be the truth lol.

 

Oh, and the instrument separation/imaging, and size of the soundstage is pretty impressive. Pretty good depth/headstage as well. Hmm!

 

 

Offhand I think it's safe to say that I'm liking these more than my classics. But we'll confirm later...

Ehhh.... 70 bucks... I dunno about that.
post #1199 of 1920

Mine arrived.Here are some first hand physical impressions from mine for others to have an idea of what is VSONIC including in this current batch of LE to compare against other LE's, VSD1 and VSD1S.One user mentioned that he didn't receive the foam tips at all but just 3 silicon tips.......so thought this might be useful for some.

 

Mine has the same serial # embossed on the left earpiece, like they intimated me before shipping(yes upon request)! burn-in process kicked off.I got 2 set of foam tips(black and purple),pair of flexible ear-hooks,a shirt clip,1 bi-flange and 3 pairs(SML) single flange tips and a nice velvet drawstring pouch. Right now "Am I Evil-Metallica" flagged off for burn-in, with flat settings on my SGP5". Mids are bit forward,bass muddy and pretty decent highs, which you get on the mid-tier IEMs(DD) right out of the box. but yeah I never had a sound-stage,instrument separations like this when I had my Klipsch S5i's first audition. One thing little odd is, the bi-flange diameter, it's so small(may be 1mm smaller) compared to the other silicon tips.not sure whether this is a standard stock bi-flange tips to the VSD family that everybody gets or what I got mine is prod fault. that doesn't matter to me either...just..................as I have MEElec's M6/M9P tips to swap and try.

 

edit> the cable is thin from the Y-split to earpieces and a dual barrell from 3.5mm jack till Y-split, not a conventional single wire jacket,giving a flat cable look.Fit is excellent both wearing it straight down or over the ear....perfect w/o ear-hooks even. A small VSONIC leaflet with tech-spec in Chinese on the left inside and think, yes I think for sure, very useful information on the other side of it......:wink:

My first VSONIC addi(c)tion to my collections.:beerchug:

^ Congrats you got the regular VSD1 or the Limited Editon??? :blink:

 

Serial # means LEs no??? And that it the right side with the number fyi. The left side is unlabeled same goes for the regular VSD1.
