Me too, very intrigued about RE-400 vs GR07 and also Ortofon E-Q5.
Double post. Damn phone connection.
Hi joker, respect for all these reviews!Here is Mr. Lennon's #9Dream performed by R.E.M. :
please tell me just few words more about sibilance, harshness of Vsonic VC02 listening this song. Compare with Meelec A151 and CC51,. Something between...., ? Thanks!
How long are the housings of the VC02 vs. the ER4? Like half of the ER4 sticks out of my ears, shallow-fit phones work best for me.
Get a VC02 after reading Joker review , Very satisfied with it , very balance Just what I want and My VC02 come with shirt clip lucky me
UE 600 review with measurements up on InnerFidelity: http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/logitech-ue-600-ear-monitor
Very respectable performance, though personally I still prefer the Ety HF5 or MEElec A161P among the $100 armatures.
While it may be warmer than the RE272 or ER4S, I really don't think the RE-400 is a warm earphone in the negative sense of that term. I have to spend more time with it but so far it's a difficult set to find fault with.
I have not heard the IE800 from TDK. The VC02 might be a safer choice than the RE-400 as its bass quantity is somewhere between that and the GR07. It's not bloated at all and it is dirt cheap. I don't think it has the overall refinement of the HiFiMan, especially in the treble region, but then that's still a $40 earphone being compared to one of the best $100 sets. I definitely prefer the VC02 to the MH1C.
In a sentence, less punchy and smoother through the treble.
Answered your PM.
You know, I never found the CC51 to be harsh-sounding. Crisp and with a bit of added sparkle/excitement, yes, but not harsh or sibilant. I would say the VC02 is a little hotter than that, and also than the A151 which, like most SR-based earphones, is pretty laid-back past the upper midrange.
Thanks joker! Useful info.VC02 ordered.
Great review on the VC02! Would love to see one on the GR04 Flagship, I find it extremely underrated, even though those who own one (including me) all seem to love it. Am angling at ordering another pair as a gift, but the choice between GR04 Flagship, VC02 and GR02BE is really tough!
Anyone want me to review the Astrotec AM-800 or 900?
joker have you heard the ATH CKS1000?
I actually saw your post on innerfidelity and I was hoping you could help me out on something. I really need a few headphone recommendations, see I have tried many headphones the hd -650, the v-moda m100's, the he-400's, the m50. And I haven't found anything I like, for me personally the most important thing about music is hearing the singer above everything else. I want to be able to hear the singer up close and personal, instrument separation and soundstage are other things I look for but not as important.
Just a note. The PFEs aren't side firing like the 600 and have a curved rubber horn attached.to a front firing BA. I know because I made the same error and opened them up to check. One of the few (I wish) times I've inserted foot in mouth. Overall, it matters not to another great review but I know you like accuracy.
I'm considering the VC02s, but I've never had a pair of IEMs that have detachable cables before. What are the benefits of them, because unless the seller sells replacement cables, which I don't think VSonic do, then it just seems like something else to potentially lose.
There's also the new R02 Silver, which seems to be better than the GR02BE unless you need the extra bass
I have not.
I'm not that well-versed in full-size headphones but in the world of IEMs you'd probably like something like an ATH-CK100 or Westone UM3X. Those two really put the vocals front and center.
Thanks for the info. I guess I've always assumed they were side-firing even since reading dfkt's 2008 review, which calls them "edge-firing". I'll see if I can make the correction on IF.
Generally speaking, the advantage is that if you wear out the cable, you have to replace only the cable and not the whole earphone. The VC02 is a special case because it's so cheap - a replacement cable would probably cost as much as a new unit. VSonic doesn't sell them yet but it's a standard 2-pin connection so there are a lot of cables that will work. I think the Fiio TF10 cables (~$30) should work, though I don't have a pair here.
