VSonic VSD1/VSD1S Reviews/Impression Thread - Page 40

post #586 of 1920

I received my pair of VSD1S yesterday and did a quick listen and comparison with my pair of gr07 mk ii. The VSD1S is a real winner, at just $45 and free shipping from lendmeurears. Source used was my peachtree dacit -> uha-6s mkii OPA209.

 

On first listen, I felt that the VSD1S is a very balanced sounding IEM. Its mids were a little recessed and the treble was slightly higher than neutral though, compared to the my UERMs. Its soundstage and instrument seperation isn't anything to rave about, but that is typical of low-end entry IEMs. It sounded kind of closed in compared to the gr07, and especially the UERMs. Bass and treble extension was pretty good, and smooth throughout. I felt that the bass was just about right, similar to the gr07's bass but not as detailed or controlled. The treble was pretty even throughout unlike the gr07, with no serious treble spikes and very little sibilance, unless it was already in the track. 

 

I found that the stock default tips fit me very well, but I do wish that they could be worn over the ears rather than just hanging down. 

 

Overall, I think vsonic is pretty accurate when they say that the VSD1/1S retains 80% of the gr07's sound at only 1/3 the price.

Nah, they got it wrong. It's actually 1/4 of the price and in China it's even like 1/6, so the price to performance ration is even more impressive

Haha I think you're right about that. The price to performance is even more impressive than the re-400's imo.

Just got my VS1 today!!! yay yayy. Coincidentally, it was shipped from my hometown in Illinois too. Was really surprised.

 

Problem though... Can't tell if this is a defect to worry about or if you guys have the same issue. The left one seems to be poorly mounted. I tried nudging the tip but it doesn't move, so it's definitely adhered how it sits now. If you don't see it... the left nozzle is protruding out more and is angled to the right more. I can still get a perfect seal, the sound doesn't seem to be affected (listening right now). It's noticeable with the vsonic tips, but with my complys, it goes over that edge and hides the gap; so it's no big deal. 

 

What do you think I should do? What would YOU do? Just live it? Or contact lendmeurears for an exchange?

Hmm.. Now the question is which of the two is a better fit for my music? Either way chances are I'll be $46 down in the immediate future wink.gif

Honestly, from the pics it looks like the issue is with the right nozzle, not the left. The nozzles are supposed to be protruding as they need space to rotate. Does the right nozzle move? You can try applying more pressure to the left one to move it. I remember joker mentioned he used pliers to start moving the nozzles.

So both nozzles move now coz form the pics kinda looks like the right one won't move?

post #594 of 1920

yeah they both move now. Obviously the right one has a much smaller gap then the left as originally mentioned. But it moves just the same

Well, then I guess you can contact LMUE only if it bothers you.

After 24 hrs of burn.  Both 1 and 1S sound quite similar.  Vocals seem a little thicker on the 1.  Treble sounds more prominent on the 1 also.  More mid-bass punch on the 1.  Everything I hear is minimal in differences.  More burn is needed I think.

100hrs minimum is needed smily_headphones1.gif

So has anyone listened to both iems enough to be able to say which would be better for the stuff I listen to (ex: Yes, Metallica, Led Zeppelin, Beatles, Queen, Journey, Dream Theater, Megadeth, Queensryche, King Crimson, Rush, Nine Inch Nails, Primus, Soundgarden, Jane's Addiction, Alice in Chains)?
