Well, that's a tough one. As I said, by the time we get the VSD1LE and review it you probably won't be able to get one anymore coz it will be out of stock. It's one of this occasions that you have to make a tough decision quickly without much feedback. I was checking Chinese posts and opinions but you can't get anything meaningful from them. Most of them just consider it decent for the money and they've bought it a lot cheaper. The thing is that even though vsonic has been selling the VSD1 well in China, the bulk of Chinese consumers have an inherently low opinion on domestic iems like VSD1 and mostly just consider them decent for the money at best (and the VSD1 is like 33 bucks there). And it seems most of the Chinese "audiophiles" are only interested in brands like Sennheiser, AKG, Audio Technica, Sony etc. This is funny coz Vsonic has been focused entirely on their domestic market but they get the praise and appreciation they deserve mostly from the international consumers, who are relying on ebay to get hold of the vsonic products at a premium price.
Hell, when I first wrote my initial impressions on the VSD1 here I remember they were quoted in a Chinese thread and the users there were pretty much making fun of me wearing it in reverse (the pic with me wearing it over-the-ear) and were wondering why Western people are buying Chinese iems and on top of that gladly pay more.
