My foam tips do not stay when I pinch them and on one side some of the sponge is almost coming off the plastic tubing. The other tips don't fit me as well as the foams

I think that's a sign that you have to get a new pair lol.

Have the best fit with medium and small narrow-bored eartips like hybrids.

See also how I moded VSD3S with MMCX sockets, can use now Westone, Shure, UE, FiiO aftermarket cables!!!

It was really hard, I think the mmcx socket must be modified to fit the place of vsonic connector, because I destroyed original plastic seal of socket on earpice and needed to fix mmcx soket with epoxy.

While I solved driver flex by making a vent hole, this also changed signature and quality of sond, and I do not know in what way, bad or good...

Treble now is more extended but leaner, bass also got leaner, earphone now sounds noisy...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is what I were expecting from Vsonic when heard about their detachable cable earphone model.

I think that only the central contact of vsonic socket prevents universal usage of cables, coz diameter is the same...

Got my non-detachable VSD3 in yesterday.  Sounds fine. One complaint, Severe hotspot on 2 of the angled points on the shell, on the left one only.  Anyone else have issue with the angled spots on the shells?  Ideas on correcting?  Also they are labeled as grey...More like lightly smoked.  Besides that, they sound fine, no flex bass is punchy without being overbearing, as for cable, seems fine.  At least Vsonic didnt ruin the sound by changing the cable like they did on the GR02 BE, was so disappointed when they "upgraded" its cable to that crap snakeskin style.

Wonderful job! So when you say the best fit with these, you meant to say the male socket catches firmly in place and not freely twist like the stock vsonic's,correct? So did you re-cable with matching male connector pins by using the stock cable or you retained it and did a fresh one to go with this generic(shure mmcx)?.......

Those 2 angled corners are what are causing the "hotspots" They hit slightly on the outer contour of my ear.  Also the color on LMUE states grey, but in reality, they are more clear with a hint of smoke to them.

I understand. I have two pairs of VSD3S (detachable and non-detachable) which cause no problems. I had a VSD3 which did have some "sore spots" - returned it due to major driver flex. The replacement pair is fine. So for me, it's been 25% with "sore spots" vs. 75% that are fine.

Yes agreed,my left ear had the bit of pain then I realized due to the diamond cuts hurting both the tragus when I side slept but then normal listening too(but less).....yeah the shells are so transparent enough to say they are clear ones........

How is the non-detachable version holding up? Is there a difference in quality due to the cable as LMUE mentions on its site? Did your detachable version have any issues?

Sorry but I haven't done any critical listening since receiving non-detachable VSD3S, so I can't comment on any differences due to SPC cable. I haven't had any problems with sound cutting out, though. The strain reliefs are still sub-par, though. I was hoping they'd do better with the non-detachable version.

If I were purchasing these again, I'd get non-detachable VSD3 smily_headphones1.gif
