Anyways on topic, can anyone say something about the claims vsonic made regarding the audio signature ? Do they sound like the westone/shure Iems ?

What amp did you try them with?

as u have already bought these for rs 2800 approx its a hefty amount to pay.

 

i just hope hifinage.com(indian dealer) gets hold of these,atleast warranty woes will be over

If a retailer near you will carry them in the next year, it would almost be cheaper to hold on to the defective ones and return to the retailer when they have stock - buy another pair in the meantime.... give the warranty exchange pair to a friend or sell them.... but to pay 1/3rd of the price to send back a DOA unit is a tough decision....

That's a good point. Dealing with a retailer out of the country for a warranty issue sounds....unpleasant.

problem is there is no guarantee that the said retailer will have vsd3!!

 

this is the only problem with imports,,,during warranty claim u tend to loose a lot of money

O2 combo & C&C BH2.

 

I guess you meant with "driving them to full potenial" something along the lines of "color the sound to your liking". :p

That's only if you were sure they were getting them - otherwise you have to bite the bullet and send them back

even i sent my gr07 mk2 back a week ago for rs 800(15$ approx) but then i got them for 130$ and did not mind as i had already used them for 6 months

LMUE shipped out my VSD3S earlier yest. Looking forward to having some IEMs again after I lost my E30s early last year.

Ya ya, can't think about using normal post. Speed post will cose 900 bucks! damn... I know Hifinage man, got my GR02 BE and VSD1 from there only... Yes, warranty will not be an issue with them, they are pretty good with customer support. But the price can't be compared. The VSD1 for example, is 3,000 on Hifinage, and it's 39$ on LMUE (~INR 2340)...

Yes I mailed them about this already... Haven't figured out whether to send it back or not...

BTW: Too bad it was you, there are always a few defective units...  

Well, sorry to sound noobish, but I don't know how to remove the cable. Tried rotating it (like a screw), that didn't work. Did not want to just pull it out (like a headphone jack) for the fear of damaging it, since it's pretty tight. I hope cleaning them helps.

:-(

 

As an afternote, since I tried twisting the cable to remove it, the frequency of sound cutoffs has reduced drastically. But it's still there, and I still did receive a faulty product... So thanks, your idea DID work a bit.

:-D

I read LMUE's policy for international returns.  They won't give a refund for a faulty product, but they will send a replacement upon receipt of the product (RMA is required first).  The customer has to pay shipping back to Singapore.  LMUE will cover shipping on the replacement item.  

 

Assuming a person lives in the states, a small flat rate box (up to 4 lbs.) via USPS to Singapore is about $25.  Six to ten days delivery time.

 

Edit: @HeadHoncho - just noticed you're in India.  Not sure about shipping from there.  Do you have any online resources for calculating shipping estimates? 

 

Yes, my cheapest (and most time consuming) option will be around 15$

VSonic are not known for build quality, especially with cables. I wouldn't touch this thing with a ten-foot pole, but when their higher-end stuff comes out, they may be worth re-cabling for the sake of longevity.

I found the sound from an iphone 4s to be more melodic and agreable than many amps and other phones (YMMV)

so is using an iphone 4s for playing music a decent device? I've been using iPhone4s + Yuin pk3 until I receive my vsd3s

No technical knowledge needed but little patience.

Do this first, just press the cable to catch in the female mmcx connector and you shd hear an audible tick sound which means thay are correctly in contact(grip/intact)). Now check the sound.

And if you could'nt succeed,Its a removable cable, so try pulling out the cable gently with one hand and hold firmy the shell on the other.....its not that hard,be little relaxed.I know what ur going thru now. But you gotta try it self to confirm its really a defective one.

Also the nozzle is part of half shell than vsonic's swivable/rotating one so it shd be ok to try on your side.

These mmcx are better than 2 pins(UE,Westones) so spin ur wheel.

Thanks for the heads up. I had a near-orgasm looking at the style of the IEM and the removable cable, plus the sound impressions. Build quality is a serious subject to me since I'm known for being clumsy and in a rush all the time.

But still... the price is tempting.
