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. ;)

Also, the vsonic website (which is all in chinese) says that this headphone can be burned-in with: 20hrs of white noise with short intervals. (recommended www.rainymood.com and www.calm.com) 10hrs of pink noise with short intervals. Finally burn in with soft songs until the optimum sound is achieved. Don't know what that means but there ya go.

Does that mean that there's still hope for the VSD3 that I got?

I have plenty of hope, just not for the pink vsd3 that I got. Unless burning them in results in a magical transformation in their sound that is.

I'm skeptical about the benefit of burn-in. I think the manufacturers say this just because if you take that much time to burn them in, you'll probably just forget about returning them later.

If you have decided to return it, why spend the time to burn it in at all?

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.
