My girlfriend's been using the XBA-1 and Quadbeats lately, but today she listened to my VSD3S and... well, I guess it isn't my VSD3S anymore. She listened to it when I first got it and liked it, but I guess after comparing it to the Sony she was pretty stunned by it. She has good taste in IEMs, lol.

Soon, you will join Wokei.  He was happy with his FiiO X3 until his gf decided to borrow it.  Long story short, his main "DAP" now is pink Clip+ :eek:

Me neither wink.gif

I plan to use it as DAC only paired with the Cayin C5. We'll see how it performs.

Hmm, the Creative C5 does indeed look nice.

You also joined to LH Labs Geek Out 720 campaign @peter123 ? That's great! I am very excited to hear its sound. I think missing it at the lowest price could be definately a sad thing for me... Fingers crossed wink.gif

Yeah, I couldn't resist. I've had the AQ Dragonfly for to long, need a change wink.gif It's lowest price or nothing for me though.

Looks as I need to stay sober on my US trip later this month frown.gif

Well, I've had my vivo xe800 for a couple of days so here are my impressions. I don't have much to compare it to (only have the vsd1s and pistons) but playing guitar and drums gives me something else to compare.

 

I was pretty worried at first because the xe800s sounded really veiled when I put them on. I didn't think I'd have to do any tip rolling considering that the vsd1s with the stock tips was perfect for me, but I tried anyway and noticed that the sound was getting clearer regardless of the tip. After a few hours I was back on the stock tips and the xe800s were much more transparent. Not the best first impression, but I'm now willing to believe in burn-in much more now.

 

Even when they were veiled, I was impressed by the imaging and the separation; instruments were more distinct from each other than on the vsd1s and pistons and I could tell when sounds were a few degrees clockwise/counterclockwise over. The soundstage is nice and wide, but the depth doesn't seem like much of a upgrade from the vsd1s/pistons.

 

The detail and texture on these is amazing. Cymbals extend nicely with excellent shimmer/sparkle/sizzle and drums have an addictive cripsness to them. Guitars are accurate and it makes the jazzmaster fan in me unbelievably happy to hear the xe800s reproduce it's bright treble, warm, mellow mids, and ringing behind the bridge so well.

 

 

 

Bass is of good quality and the sub bass can be clean and impactful, textured and rumbly, and everything in between. Speed is good enough for metal, and I'd be comfortable trying to determine if something was played with a p-bass or a j-bass in these.

 

 

 

Treble can still get peaky but its smoother than on the vsd1s. Vocals don't seem much more sibilant than they would be in real life, but then again, i don't really mind if vocals are sibilant anyway.

 

 

The only bad thing I can say about these is that the cable had a few kinks, and the twist tie left some dents. Other than that, its a complete upgrade for me that cost me slightly less than the vsd1s, so thanks for posting about these bhazard.:D

A mate messages me last night and asked for recommendation on an IEM for daily use. I gave him options: GR07s, KC06a, Havi B3 Pro 1, TTPOD T1E, VSD3s. He only needs one so I told him to wait and have a listen to mine and pick. He's lucky I wish I got a choice to listen then choose

Sounds pretty much in line with GR07 family. Really an insane value at the $50 price. Also, I know what you mean about the guitars. There are some tracks that you can almost tell what gauge the strings are.
