A year later, the left side of my VSD2Si has quit. I actually enjoyed these and even used them as stage monitors quite a few times. :(
Lasted two months and the cable split away from the left earbud in the VSD2Si's I got from this. They were cheap. But I'm still not super impressed
I received the GR07 and am enjoying them immensely. Thanks massdrop!
I received the New VSD5S and sounds GREAT! Is my first Drop on MassDrop and I'm really happy :)

What's the weight of your package? 😁
Flurps
Ahahah I don't know :)
Out of 3 IEM Blue Boxes I participated in recently, my Vsonic VSD1si's are the only pair with a balanced frequency response. One pair (Brainwavz) is painfully bright, and another (BlueEverBlue) is very muddy. How difficult is it to make IEMs with a reasonably flat response? I think I'll skip the next Blue Boxes.
Anyone with the VSD1S find that if they move slightly you just get a huge amount of white noise? If I move whatever I have the earphone plugged into it seems to go static until you move it back into a position that it likes.
Seems, almost all got VSD1S a 2. And almost coloured. Goodbye Massdrop.

Not dong anyone a disservice except yourself. Doesn't matter, though, you clearly don't know how odds work.
Can anyone who can read it confirm whether or not the tag on the VSD3 suggests burn in? I may have to extract them from the drawer where I retire all of my shitty audio equipment that isn't worth selling and give them another shot if so.
Heefty
It says something about burning them in for 100 hours and that the sound will be more pleasant after that...
The VSD1S have comic sans on the earphones. Well done VSonic.

is that sarcasm i detect? hehe... i got them too and it's got that "not serious" choice of fonts on it. So, i don't take them seriously.

Yes it is sarcasm
Still waiting here in Australia ( Expected this so I don't mind) any idea what a 0.275 lbs package would be.
It has now been 14 days since the date they were shipped. I have still not recieved mine, and at first it was shipped through Asendia USA, a company I have never heard of before. This company not only stopped tracking my package at the Canadian border, they did not even supply a link which I could use to track it through the new postal company. I am not sure whether this is common practice, but to me it is just bad service.

same, havent recieved mine yet got the notification that said it was shipped two weeks ago
Got the VSD1Si today. Am I the only person who cares about the inline mic? Because it doesn't seem to work with my iPhone 6S. Press the button, nothing. Hold the button, nothing. Other than that, gotta say I'm surprised. Audio sounds clear and balanced, though I haven't done burn-in yet. Fits very comfortably in my ear with the large buds, too. Too bad the cable feels fragile as hell.

Update: I think my inline mic is defective... started working all of a sudden today and then it died soon after. Am I eligible for a replacement? In case people are wondering (because they didn't include a manual): press once for play/pause, press twice for next song, and press thrice for previous song/rewind. Standard stuff.

Could be a bad connection with the headphone jack?
I got the VSD1si, and the inline mic works well with my iPhone 6S
I got the order of the photos wrong but whatever. This roughly translates to: "After about 100hrs of Burn-in, this IEM will reach its highest performance. Thank you for choosing Vsonic." So yeah, burn-in is necessary.

Like the snug fit and the swivel joint of the in-ear thingy. It allows the user to adjust the angle according to his/her ear canal so that it can deliver the music deeper into his/her skull. Yes my ears love to be penetrated.

Beige carry pouch made of cloth. L-shaped 3.5mm jack. In-line control and mic on the right side. Slim cables feel a little too fragile for comfort. A good tug might just yank out the wires if it got caught on something so be careful.

Neat packaging. 0.368 lbs. The box is probably heavier than the IEM itself. Can't feel its weight at all when i put it on.

Burn-in started at 1425HRS. Thanks for reading. ;)

No, some people hope that the sound would become acceptable after burn-in, so they don't return immediately. But I think it's a waste of time.

It could be a clever marketing plot or placebo effect, we will need scientific equipment to know for sure if burn-in has any effect on sound quality at all. I just think that people "get used to it" and the sound quality just feels better after a while. Thus "burn-in" is still being practiced in the audio community.
Got VSD2Si here. Seems pretty good. It's time to run-in :D Package weight 0.18 kg(0.4 lbs), FYI.
Tfw you actually get the GR07... First audiophile drop luck I guess :P
Dystopia
How do you like them?
faithguy19
They're a bit big for my ears so they get sore after prolonged use, but just for use for travelling to and fro from school every day they're fine. I quite like the sound too, not too bassy and can hear the mids-high clearly. But don't take my word for it because I'm not an audiophile like most people in this community, just came here for a new pair of IEMs.
Got vsd1s... Anybody that's happy with these have not listened to any hifi-products. The bass is so extremely exaggerated that it makes heavy records like Black Sabbaths first or sleeps dopesmoker sound like disco records...And they are just about as microphonic as having a sm57 micking your iem cord. I'm i happy...No, but they will suffice as training headphones

Absolutely, rock of the heavier kind mostly: Sabbat, sleep, goatsnake, acid kings, etc As well as more progressive stuff as: Pink Floyd, a perfect circle, Devin Townsend Project.
If one is in to electronic music or hip hop these might be quite alright, but for music with a more balanced soundstage it's just too much low end

exactly the kind of review i needed. I like vocals, jazz and rap. Hope mine will do ok when i finally get it. Thanks!
Just got mine, it's VSD2Si. Pretty happy with that!

Same here! Although the sound is definitely coloured with a really obvious bass boost (even says "Bass Enhanced" on the package), they sound and isolate far better than any other earphones that I've used. I have fairly neutral cans already for use at home and occasionally elsewhere, so these are mainly for portability (school, gym, etc.) and maybe even stage/studio. One (very) minor complaint I have is that "S" sounds are a bit too harsh. Disclaimer: This review was written before a proper burn in.
EDIT: The harsh "S" seems to have gone away when I played a lossless FLAC, so it must have been the lossy audio and not the IEMs themselves. Now they sound buttery smooth with lots of quality bass!
Does anyone else earphones sound a bit staticky
Got the vsd3 in pink. Not worried about the color. It's a clear pink tinted plastic. I replaced the rubber ends with the foam ones. Actually very comfortable and block out a good bit of sound. My daughter was sitting next to me and I didn't know she was talking lol. The cord is silver rubbery material and doesn't tangle that bad. No issues with build quality like others have stated. For the price I'm actually very impressed! The sound I would give them a 7 out of 10. I have the KRK kn-8400's which I love. It took me some time to get to know how they sound, they are pretty flat with a roll off on the low end. Very clear all around. The VSD3's have a noticeable boost in bass by comparison. And do color the sound a bit. But no means is that a bad thing. The VSD3's sound great with electronic or any bass heavy music. I use a different EQ setting for things like YouTube where I cut the lows a bit. Otherwise it will be a little to overpowering, and muddy the vocals. im actually pretty impressed overall. If I had a choice I would of picked a different color, but for $26 shipped to my house. I can't complain. I've never owned anything from VSD. Which is definitely an Asian company, only the warranty information was in English, but come on they are headphones, if you cant figure out how to use them, then you've got bigger issues. So I can't compare them to any of their other products. if you come across a pair of VSD3's, in any color, for less then 30 bucks. Buy them. It's worth it. I'm also a first time massdrop Buyer. So maybe that's why I got the pick of the litter I don't know. overall I'd give them 8 out of 10. The price with delivery and a much better than I expected set of headphones (not iem's, not a flat enough response to be considered monitors) I would buy again in hopes of getting a different color or as a gift.

Just got a .14 kg package. It's the vsd1si. I'll add thoughts later

I like them. The ear tips are oddly long and they sit in my ear real nice. Sound is... average, it's Nothing special good bass voices are good treble isn't too loud. The build is nice, cables thin but nice and flexy, right angle connector, the shape and size fits my ear well. They're a keeper. If not for being special but for just being excessively normal... lame pause button though EDIT: (note on bass quantity, less than brainwavez s5/AT cks1100is/ symphonized nrg. More than mee m6 pro, apple ear pods,). Actually these are similar to the m6 just less soundstage and more/fuller/tighter everything else EDIT: the right ear has a comic sans like text for the model number and it looks ridiculou.
hooplidoopler
nice review. i like bass and vocals more. would be using this while on the go since it fits nicely in ear and is hard to drop out. still looking forward to getting mine.
Already had a VSD1S, now they sent me a VSD1Si. Thanks massdrop, i havent received a phone call in years the mic will come in handy. I wonder how much i can sell these for
Isalgo
To anyone that might be interested in a comparison. The VSD1Si isnt that similar to the vsd1s. The casing itself is noticably smaller (most likely different possibly?) , the cables is worse (and shorter if it matters (its about 1.5 arm lenghts)), the earplug selection is worse, its an all around downgrade. How do they sound compared to the vsd1s? There is less bass albeit it behaves...similarish enough, it has less punch though. It is less V shaped than the vsd1s, has more mids. i might actually prefer it for vocals . The highs are a lot different, harsher and a bit sibilant even maybe. Its bad to the point i cant stop noticing it and it makes some songs unlistenable. There's definitely a spike. But overall seems a bit more flat than the vsd1s. Although i prefer the vsd1s, it feels smoother and wider. And it kind of surprised me its not even the same IEM but with an inline mic, this seems to be different everything. Keep in mind these are my subjective opinions. You might like the other one better. I used the same earplugs on both and listened trough a Sabre DAC and O2 amp for the testing. i was pretty hyped for the vsd3 too, i figured 40% im always unlucky to get some small percentage so maybe this time ill get what i want! But no, this time i had to win a 10% luck with these.
Today a .14kg package is coming. USPS why you have to get my house so late
I ordered for 2, hoping one would be gr07, but hey, i got a pair of VSD1Si and a VSD2S . :-/

We can't all be 1%ers

Sigh! True, true. Guess it's called the blue box cos it gives the blues to folks like me.
vsd3 in green, at least I didn't get pink
coldfists
they look kinda cheap but they do sound pretty decent, kinda bass heavy and the mids feel stressed? I need to learn iem lingo
Got vsd 2 si But I was hoping for something better lol
Red and blue vsd 3 :{
It's fun reading what everyone got while still waiting for my package from frankfurt. keep em' coming yo
0.4 lbs, got the vsd2si. cheapest pair possible hahah, oh blue boxes. at least they're an upgrade to my $10 gas station in ears.
Got the VSD2Si I thought Hifimen Re00 is the crappiest headphone/IEM I'll ever get, turned out I was wrong. Just like others state, any movement would cause sound to flicker. But hey, the box is super nice for the price.
Got the VSD1S, pretty bummed but better than apple earphones, also the 3.5 mm male connector is pretty bad as any movement causes the sound to flicker and sometimes only have sound one ear (straight out of the box). The anticaption was fun and all but I just had some bad luck and got a lower quality pair, I'll probably start stockpiling cash to buy a better pair somewhere else. Either way, at least this is a start to IEMs
