That $46.......I may do the vsd3s now lol. I really just want the best sound for my buck and I am willing to pay for the gr07BEs to get it, but who doesn't like saving money. The struggles of choosing what to buy.

Lulz. Tune in next week for another episode of FOTM! While the VSD3 may very well be a great phone, this is why people need to actually sit on their thoughts and let them develop over time instead of jumping the gun in a rush to get out the first set of impressions. Auditory memory is highly susceptible to fallacy, and everything new is always subjected to increased scrutiny, ergo - we are prone to thinking that the latest is in fact the greatest, or perceive "increased detail" that's already present on other sets. I'm waiting it out for a set of impressions wherein the VSD3 is actually A/Bed against something else so that there's a point of reference.

Careful, some of the impressions here might be a tad... exaggerated. I'd wait a bit for more impressions to roll in
However $46 is pretty cheap so not like you are losing a lot if this IEM doesn't suit you

Well put! I'm going to sit it out for a while and let the impressions roll in too :cool:

Agreed about auditory memory too, there's too much psychological phenomena colouring our perception of what we hear... especially new stuff we purchase, there's always an underlying need to justify it was money well spent. Which of course leads to inaccurate impressions. Some users here are definitely more prone to that thinking than others...

Was using dn2000 while waiting for vsd3s and when it arrived I tore through the box and plugged it in only to be blow away by the HD sound versus the dn2000 which sounds polite in comparison 😁

True, was hoping someone will turnup with both IEMs to do a side by side. Someone said the VSD3 sound a bit artificial which could be a big red flag for their actual sound quality.

But ^ that might be true but I got a deal on the dunu dn2000 so not bad I say but the vsd3 is easily up there with it😊

Not artificial at all to my ears , very much linear and natural 😋

I'm someone who is generally very skeptical of hyped products and even I've fallen prey to it. I can't tell you how many times someone's asked for my take on some piece of gear or phone that's come my way and I'll go type up a lengthy set of impressions only to take pause and think - does it REALLY sound like that? When you spend time with something new, your ears and mind acclimatize to that signature fairly quickly, and it eventually becomes your standard. Switching to another set afterwards usually yields some polarizing results. Stuff winds up sounding too thick/thin, smooth/etched, recessed/forward as a result, but when your ears equalize again, stuff just seems to click - until closer listening yields potential shortcomings anyhow. 

 

I guess it's then prudent to evaluate whether something is tonally accurate, has good dynamic breadth, isn't harsh/fatiguing, doesn't have problematic peaks or valleys, and presents music in a cohesive fashion (i.e. does the presentation change in accordance with the recording, or does the phone exert its coloration on it?). Like where do the faults lie? That's stuff that crops up over time. I think a lot of us are prone to excitement (which is natural) during that honeymoon period, and it's only after some time elapses that we come to have a more levelheaded take on something. Now, as I said, the VDS3 may very well be an excellent phone - sometimes you can recognize that right off the bat, but no phone currently in existence is unassailable, they've all got flaws. Question is, how glaring?

Curious Peter123, why do you own like 50 low-priced IEM's? I would be getting a nice high-end IEM instead...(tbh I just want to know how the VSD3's stack up to the big boys :tongue:)

post #1017 of 4288

Does anyone have both Audio Technica IM50 and VSD3 and compare them as they are similar priced? :rolleyes:

You're making me take whatever you say with a grain of salt, making these sound like they are so incredible that they can match up to a 300 dollar IEM that just came out as well. I dont mean to discredit what you are saying, but I agree these need more reviews

@nechrow

Good question wink.gif

I'm actually more of an full size open headphone guy and have some highly rated ones there that's in the 2-400$ range and I love them all and wouldn't want to part with either of them.

This makes me to believe that even if I got a couple of $500 IEM's I still wouldn't be completely happy with them, don't know if it makes sense but that's the way I see it.

Also it's a lot of fun with all this budget gem IEM's smily_headphones1.gif

That's definitely an excellent way to approach proper evaluation of audio gear mate! :) I agree with everything you said. A/Bing with your reference earphones is the best way to judge differences in sound and get a grasp on what you hearing, instant credibility +100000
Also yeah, I can't take impressions seriously without stating flaws, flaws are inherent to every audio gear I've heard so far... can't imagine a $45 IEM being perfect
