Nah, you got it all wrong. The VSD1 is the one marketed as giving 80% of gr07's sound. All we know about the VSD3 is that it's supposed to be tuned to sound like shure se535, which means it will have a different sound signature than VSD1. As far as its sq - vsonic always delivers, so I wouldn't worry but no one has said that VSD3 actually will sound better. It will have a fancier and more expensive housing though, so supposedly better build quality.
i don't know. I've never owned them, and not gonna take my chances either.
The 535's are triple armature drivers, like the Westone 3, UE TF10, and Sony XBA-30, so that's quite a bold statement to make by VSonic,
^ Doesn't matter what tech is used tbh, just how they really sound. So VSonic is basically saying that that sound of theirs is only worth about $60-$80 something to them. VSONIC IS DA' ULTIMATE TROLL JOB!!! LMAO <333s
I'm currently auditioning the Audio Technica EP1, and so far, out of the box, they remind me very much of a combo of my old HiFiMan RE-0 and RE-ZERO. They are very HiFiMan in sound signature, with high degree of transparency, ruler flat FR, with bass that's there, but not anything colored at all, with beautiful natural timbre and very clear and energetic treble. This without much burn in time at all. I'll have a proper impression review after 50 hours of burn in. Those who don't appreciate the HiFiMan sound need stay away.
Nah, the number of drivers has nothing to do with performance. There are single driver iems that are better than a lot of the multi-driver ones. And honestly the shures have always been very overpriced for what they are. I'm a fan of the shure sound and I understand shure's idea that they are making boutique products, so the price should be premium but when sub-$200 perform better or on-par with your $500+ flagship it's time to reconsider your marketing strategy. And yeah, I'm pretty sure vsonic can get close to shure's performance for a fraction of the price even though they are making a bit too many new products and should have probably focused on making only one or two new ones, so they can make them as best as possible instead of releasing few versions of everything.
I'm reading a lot of different things on this thread, therefore this question:
Would you recommend the VSD1S over other IEMS (Steelseries Flux i.e.) for Indie/alternative music?
Would you please listen to these songs and share your opinion?
I own the Xears XPA2pro (far to much bass, coloured ups) and the Sony MH1C (small soundstage) at the moment and I'm not completely satisfied with them.
The best portable sound I own comes from my Creative aurvana Live Headphones.
Radiohead - Paranoid Android
Arctic Monkeys - From the Ritz to the Rubble
White Lies - Farewell to the Fairground.
Muse - Bliss
Thanks! Much appreciated.
