The hard part of designing headphones are precisely making a good sound out of so many reflective surfaces in a tiny closed enclosure.

 

As far as I know I've never seen or heard an open backed IEMs before. The vent or vents on IEMs are there for a purpose as in bass response but the little tiny vent will make very little if not any difference at all in sound isolation.

I thought about getting a pair, but I don't need them to be honest :-) Does anybody knows where to buy an original pair shipped to Canada?

 

EDIT: I also prefer IEMs in general. 

I live in Canada and I ordered from penonaudio. They're currently out of stock but lend me ur ears is also another company that can ship to Canada and they should be receiving another small batch really soon

I'm moving soon and the only thing I'm sure I'm gonna need is money... no time for big expenses. The worst posts nowadays for me are the sales threads...

Wouldn't really think to use the term "Open backed" with headphones, at least not in the sense that they are have uncovered backs. But after having owned the IEM monoprice 8320's, I tell everyone they're open backed :)

I got my VSD3s yesterday, it took 3 weeks for delivery (because of Canada Day, total up 14 busines day). I bought it from ebay store as I missed the pre-order and clearly there was not many choice out there. Good side: I got the legit one and Happy with the purhase. :D

 

First impression: 

The box is smaller and I am not used to the foam tip (it is good for isolation though), amazed by the detachable cable, rotatable, the quality of sound is above the price.

 

Going on:

The sounds is pretty great, and if you are not too picky, you don't need amp for this one. It is like VSD3s has its own amp inside. The bass is strong, sound is well-balanced. Satisfied with this purchase, Love it.

 

Follow up: Soon

 

 

 

Here is the question, have heard that Vsonic prepared an upgrade cable for VSD3s, well, is the replaceable cable the same as Shure's replacement cable.

 

Put it straight, have anyone tried to switch the cable with Shure's cable?  

 

In case I may need a new/upgraded cable, can I go with Shure's replacement?

And which cable replacement from Shure is a match for VSD3s?

.

 

FYI, I asked the seller, he/she told me the upgrade cable from Vsonic end is not on sell yet, while the price will be around 35 CAD once available.

Nope :-( One of the head fier tried his SE215 cable and it didnt fit.........think same goes to other removables incl. 535........ Lets see from other's input as well.

I expected this coz I remember Vsonic's CEO saying they are working on a mmcx kinda connectors, which implies that it will be different and most likely proprietary. The upgraded cable is supposed to be out at the end of this month and hopefully LMUE will pick it up and offer some sort of return customer discount like in China.

Yeah.....the Vsonic way.wink.gif first of its kind, the proprietory touch. As the vc02 model 's removable cable fits TF10 and vice versa.

A little update from LMUE - apparently they might get some stock from the elusive red/blue vsd3s

Hello everyone,

Sorry to keep all of you waiting! We will be listing the vsd3s for sale again on Saturday 8pm. Again, there is only 20 units for sale. I am sorry we only have small amount of stocks trickling in at the moment due to shortages in components at the moment. So do mark down your calandar 

 

Update: We should be getting the Blue/Red color VSD3S next week too! Exact numbers is still unknown

The Blue/Red looks amazing, but it should be more expensive, I don't think it would be worth since it's to near from VSD5 price.

But looks amazing :evil:
