Strange they don't have M size.....guess S fits both S and M. not sure though.Also there's no combo color button option.

edit> only the XS has the wide bores?

Hi everyone. I am new to the site. I was thinking to buy Rha MA-350 or Vsonic VSDS1S. Earphones in this budget of money. I was reading reviews of earphones in head.fi and I admired a lot your reviews and opinions. So I wanted to hear a comparison between these two earphones. Thanks a lot!

what kind of music do you listen to? If it's metal/rock/punk/alternative/dupstep/electronica, then the RHA's are more your type of IEM, and if it's classical music/jazz/soft rock/blues or r&b, then the VSD1S is right up your alley. Just a matter of what you like and prefer.

What you guys describe for foam tips the opposite of what I want out of the VSD1. But I need to stick with them for a couple of days since my right ear is really tender from trying the different tips, and other reasons for taking them on and off.

 

But I know that foamies are an option for me now. I didn't use to like them, but a tip that helped me was letting them warm up a bit while getting them squeezed down. And for some reason, maybe just lucky today I didn't have any problem with the tip closing when I moved my jaw or head. That was one of the reasons I didn't give foam much of a try out before.

 

But trying the Auvio tips is in my future. Just didn't make it radio shack today.

I listen to jazz, electronica. Basically jazz!

Then the VSD1S will be your best bet, as they are designed for jazz. I'm sure you can get away with electronica, while having a nice jazz centered IEM around?

Thanks a lot for the help! I will give a try to VSD1S. But in one moment I would like to see a side by side comparison in depth (a review) between the RHA MA-350 and the VSD1S. I think that they are among the very good earphones in this price.

I've said it before - both the VSD1 and VSD1S are great for rock and metal.

No. As someone who listens to metal predominantly, the VSD1S is most certainly NOT good for metal or hard rock. The VSD1 is, because it provides a slightly different sound signature than the VSD1S. It has slightly more forward highs and bass, and slightly better instrument separation and spatial ability, which helps it deal with the THICKNESS inherent in metal music. The VSD1S is meant for quieter, more intimate musical passages like jazz and classical. Metal on the VSD1S sounds claustrophobic, and at higher volumes distorted. It struggles mightily with metal and hard rock. VSD1 is a much wiser choice for heavy music.,

Well, "struggles mightily" with metal and rock is quite the statement given that the the difference between the two is not that big. VSD1 has slightly more mid-bass and the lower mids are a touch more laid back and that gives the impression of a tad higher soundstage. It's not like they have different note thickness or that one has actually better separation. The other difference is in the treble but the VSD1S is actually better in this area coz while it's a touch less pronounced in certain areas it is a bit smoother and sweeter while the VSD1 is a bit grainy and a tad more prone to sibilance. 

I've said it many times, the difference is not that big to be able to say that the VSD1 is good for this or that type of music while the VSD1S is good for completely different genres.

You obviously either haven't heard both, or don't listen to metal or hard rock, because if you did, you wouldn't make such a glaringly erroneous comment as this?
