Hey fellow audiophiles!

I recently discovered that Vibro Labs is back after receiving an email from their subscription list. Instead of releasing IEM's' like the Sera or Maya, they are now manufacturing and machining different types of wood-chambers for the Fostex T50rp! You can choose to purchase three variants of wood cups; Zebrawood, Curly Maple and Curly Cherry. In addition to those cups, it is advisable to purchase the recommended 3d-printed acoustic baffling and pure copper cable for the "Vibro" house sound.

However, they too carry stock for already-modded T50rp's with all the listed parts, readily assembled.

Currently, they are out of stock but there will be a limited release/run on the 11th of June, 11am EST.

Unfortunately, I lack the funds to make a purchase any time soon, but I do hope I can save enough dough to snag one of these beauts.

I decided to take a chance and contact Vibrolabs for a short interview/podcast on my blog. Overall, it was a fun experience and Luke Pighetti, the owner of Vibrolabs was a absolute riot to interview! Had a blast chatting with him about the company's current releases and an open-minded discussion about the audiophile market.


Do offer constructive feedback (go easy, this is my first podcast with zero prior experience or practice ahem).

Anyone who has purchased a pair of Vibro Lab v2's; feel free to sound off in the thread!

I got mine and used lemo connectors that were a bit large but I managed to fit. I used a combination of v1 and v2 damping and the result is very good. Very nice acoustic and vocals, bass seems light but if you EQ it the sub bass slams really hard for electronic. Sound stage is not the widest but sounds tall and airy, so it has sound stage but not in the typical sense. It also feels like some of the sounds emanate from center of head like vocals and the acoustics are off to the side.

They are on par with Ori and Alpha Prime IMO, I might sell them.
