VSonic VSD1/VSD1S Reviews/Impression Thread - Page 88

post #1306 of 1968

I got VSD1S on order. Can't wait to see how they stack up against my JVC HA-FXT90's and TDK IE800's??? Hell...even against my ALTEC LANSING MZX606 (which sing like a bird with comply olive tips and that out of this world tuning-these are single ba drivers tuned to sound like dynamic drivers. it's insane!)??

+1, This is my first sight on praising Muzx 606 ultra from a fellow head-fi'er......This is an over-looked IEM by many imo. The mids and highs are a way to heaven and just add foam tip,Boom, it's true heaven.

Oh you bet! These were the first single BA IEM's I ever bought. I was actually quite excited when I received them in the mail. The packaging was quite impressive as well. I've owned many single BA IEM's (Mee A151. 161/UE 600/XBA-1/ect..) and none have sounded as dynamic and with that weighty bass tuning as the 606. I agree with you on all counts. Just reminds me of a high quality dynamic driver instead of a BA. I tossed it in a box unfortunately, when the right side started to short. Then recently I found them in that box, proxy'd and wrapped that short, created a homemade strain relief, and slapped olives on them and HOLY ****!! My latest favorite IEM for listening with my Sony unamped. Glad you recognize how great these under looked IEMs are, Shawn.

Infact I was keen on getting another pair of 606 and MeeM6/M9 to re-shell as budget hybrids.....606 for mid/hi's and Mee for bass as it's dynamic. Those crystal highs and instruments on 606 is amazing.

That sounds like an awesome idea, and you'd have one hell of a hybrid custom.

Would these sound "bad" on a smartphone (Nexus 4). I also have Fiio e17. 

post #1312 of 1968

no way.they are gonna sound great on your smartphone as long as your sound card on your phone is high quality. Most IEM's nowadays are tuned with smartphones and iphones in mind.

thanks for the reply, how's the build quality on this? Does these ear buds tangle very easily? I have the iBeats and they tangle so easily because the wires r somewhat thin and the wires are sticky/rubberly.

Nope. They have that high quality Vsonic cable. Can't compare Beats cable with professional VSonic cable. Different leagues. VSonic 1.30m TPU cable, 4 X20 silver core wires +/-3%. thick metal cable, like pro monitors.

last question (hopefully), Which is better in terms of sound quality, build, and the ability to resit tangling: Vsonic GR02 or VSD1/VSD1s? The Gr02 is around 10$ cheaper on ebay.

The VSD1/S has better sound quality. GR02 has the same cable and as far as the build quality of the housing it's a bit more solid given it's bigger and the front part is metal while on  the VSD1/S only the nozzles are metal. On the other hand, the GR02's housing sticks out of the ear while the VSD1/S' is flush with the ear and has the cool rotating nozzles.

I have the GR02 bass edition and the VSD1. The GR02be has colder and clearer sound; while the VSD1 has darker and warmer, therefore muddier sound. What I don't like about the VSD1 is the extra midbass, I consider it a bit bassy for my personal taste, I should have gone with the VSD1S instead. My music preference is rock/metal.

I have 2 friends (own cheap $10 in-ears) try on the GR02be and VSD1, and they prefer the GR02be. Their music preference is main stream pop, k-pop.

 

If you don't want to spend an extra $10 I believe the GR02be will be good enough, or get the VSD1S. You won't go wrong with either. Also, check out lendmeurears.com, they're having a sale on Vsonic models.

what exactly is the earclip for? is it to make the earbuds behave more like these so they fall out less easily? I'm leaning towards the VSD1s cuz of the earclip, this thread, and seems lighter than the GR02

Do you mean the cable guides that vsonic include with the accessories? They are used if you wear the iem in over-the-ear fashion and you have issues with the cable sitting behind your ears without moving. The GR02 has a bit too long strain reliefs for over-the-ear wear but it's possible. The VSD1/S is a lot better for over-the-ear use but you have to swap the channels (use the left earpiece in the right ear and vice versa).

The Vsonics are all pretty neat. What a great company.
