VSonic VSD1/VSD1S Reviews/Impression Thread - Page 127

post #1891 of 1920

ha ha, yes amazing how the Brit expression "jack plug" has lasted this long.  Even the whole concept of these connectors derived from 19th century telegraph and telephone technology is crazy.

 

I'll keep on my horse trying to use plug and jack as the male and female parts respectively, although I do understand how twisted the etymology of "jack" has been.

Just ordered a set of these (VSD1S) from lendmeurears, are there any precautions to take to prevent the failures mentioned here?

Has anyone warrantied anything through this shop successfully?

If I can get 12 months out of them I'd be happy, but it sounds like people have had failures much sooner.

I ended up packing up my broken earphones in a <1 oz envelope and returning them to HK for $6 (first class international, USPS). When (if?) I get my replacement, I was thinking about going to town with some heat shrink tubing, but I'd also like to hear if anyone has other recommendations.

 

As far as warranty, I would guess lendmeurears would be more reputable than my ebay seller.

I was seriously considering doing the same from day one, but I wonder if that would void my warranty...

My thoughts were,take a good flexible electrical wire/mouse cable/usb cable, pull the inner cables out keep the jacket. Now cut the jacket end to end to groove,just like we see it with the ear guides to fit in the vsonic cable.....the jacket shd be more flexible than stiff. I even thought of heat shrink but then thats not reversible,if needs be for some reasons,in future.....

Edit=>>> I have the vsd1LE....btw how do you plan on applying the heat,only at the ends?or throughout?

You can only really do the plug end, to do the drivers you'd have to disconnect them first (I wouldn't bother, sounds risky).

From what I've read here, the failures at the plug are more common anyway. I might just heatshrink that, should be easy enough to carefully cut it off later without damaging anything if a warranty claim is needed. Can anyone recommend any heatshrink that is fairly flexible when dry? Most of my normal heatshrink gets quite rigid once shrunk.

Ideally I'd rather not have to claim warranty (long shipping times) hence this question.

But you can use a pair of scissors to cut the shrink and insert the cable into it? Yet possible? Im just asking as I never did any DIYs w/heat shrink. Coz I feel the cable throughtout is so slim/thin and im afraid of its life though its good enough....for now so far. :-(

You can't do that unfortunately, heatshrink needs to be kept intact (i.e. not cut along its horizontal axis) for it to shrink and tighten around the cable. It looks neat when done.

If you slice any wire or tubing horizontally it will look quite messy when attached. What you could do instead is use some self-fusing or self-amalgamating tape from 3M and wrap areas of the cable with it. I forget the exact number but it's something like this:

It sticks only to itself. Might be expensive too.

You think that is true? Jkerl saidn: Overall, the VSD1S offers 90% of the performance of VSonic’s highly-regarded GR07 Bass Edition model at 1/4 the price. Enough said.
post #1900 of 1920

The VSD3S is better in just about every aspect than the VSD1S, so if that's true, the VSD3S is 95% of the GR07 according to that logic... It's a very subjective thing and that's a hard claim to quantify with any objective measurement. I'd put it to you this way. If you want to spend $100 and want a neutral signature with tight bass, get the GR07. If you want to spend 50 and like a more warm and fun signature get the VSD3S. That's the way I'd look at it.

I think VSD1-LE is better than 1/1S....and would be close enough to compare with GR07s than 1/1S.....and may be joker's impressions might have changed and given more weightage to LE if he would've given a shot? than 1S.....

No serial unless you had the vsd1 limited edition. Otherwise, these aren't common iems and if someone bought them he most likely did a research and will remember everything about it, so ask him where he got them and if he says he doesn't remember or that they were a gift, then just clock the mofo and take them back.
