Apologies first that I don't know all the audiophile lingo but here's my personal take:

 

I prefer Pistons over my VSD1 because I found it had better clarity in the mids and highs.  The clarity was comparable to my Monster Gratitude.  However Gratitude had harsh highs and Pistons did not. 

 

As for lows, I like to have bass when the song calls for it.  Does that make me a basshead?  I'm not really sure.  I found Piston's bass had more depth than the other two, but lacked the punch/tightness.  But all changed after I pulled out the foam from the nozzle.  I'm still in the process of burn-in (16 hours and counting) but to me after the mod the Pistons have already surpassed both VSD1 and Gratitude as my go-to iem's.

 

I will probably give the Grats to my wife, and keep the VSD1 for going out/exercise.  I don't really see Pistons as being practical for running around.

 

For iem's, the most I've ever spent was the $60 for Gratitude on Amazon, which was a price I was pretty happy with considering the original price was $220.  But with Pistons being just $25, I'm not sure (without increasing my budget significantly) I'll be able to find better value. 

 

As for budget -- my wife and I have this agreement that applies both ways:  Anything under $50 I can get no questions asked.  $50-100, I have to let her know.  $100+ she has veto power.

Grey is the old version, without beryllium drivers. It probably sounds much worse, so it's not recommended to get them.

VSonic VSD1 is a solid performer. Another one to check out is the Brianwavz Delta. Both of those can be purchased at mp4nation.com
