Could resist buying some wooden Xears, plus LMUE still haven't replied to my email.
These are significantly more capable than anything I've heard from Xears (which is most of them).

And as I said before I like it more than the mh1c - the bass is less boomy and a touch more controlled, the mids are more neutral and the the highs are more pronounced as the mh1c's treble is a bit too smooth for my liking and sounds dull on some occasions.
I don't find the MH1Cs bass at all boomy, though it is more enhanced / boosted than my preference, as well as a little loose. I agree with your signature comparison against the VSD1, as well VSD1s relative smoothness up top, compared to the GR07.
My experience of all three phones (GR07, VSD1 and MH1C) is no doubt affected significantly by use of a descent amp, which tightens up the bottom end, so take my impressions with a pinch of salt. I do agree that the MH1C can sound overly smooth, or dull, if not fed adequate juice.

I found no use for any of the stock tips, opting instead for Jays Silicon single flange - a tip which works perfectly for me on almost all mid-range dynamics. That's just me. I'd encourage others to use other popular favorites such as Sony Hybrids, Meelec double flange, UE single flange, reversed or modded Comply TS-400, Addiem etc. It might also be worth trimming or reversing the stock foams.
The VSD1 have good soundstage proportions and excellent separation. I'm liking these much more than the GR06. I they appear to perform at at a similar level whilst having a more versatile / likable signature.
