Just excellent

Posted

Pros: Very well balanced and very precise sound, no major flaws, adjustable nozzle angle

Cons: Slightly springy cable, over-the-ear only, sibilant/presence boosted with certain tips, slightly warm, could have more highest end

VSonic GR07 is a great example of IEM strong because it has few flaws and almost all of these are possible to correct with a good equalizer. Bass is perfectly controlled, excellent texture, very well extended (-6 dB at 30 Hz with perfect seal), perhaps a bit warm due to high-bass boost (~250 Hz). No bass bleed is present. Mids can be slightly forward to slightly laid back depending on tips and depth of fit. Highs... here's the issue. With shallow insertion, there can be a fair amount of lower highs boost, around 6kHz, which combined with some highest end peaks can sound sibilant. Using foam tips helps with this, deep insertion completely removes this issue. GR07 don't have a lot...

Top-tier sound for mid-tier price

Pros: Highly detailed, neutral, goes well with whatever you throw at it

Cons: Can be sibilant (requires 100+ hours of burn in), springy cable, unhelpful strain reliefs.

These are amazing IEMs for the price. It is a balanced IEM and isnt lacking across the spectrum. They can handle pretty much every genre you put through these. The bass on these is excellent, it rumbles down deep, while being very quick and tight. But the main thing which I love about the bass on these is the 'weight'. When the track calls for it these really do move a whole lot of air and slam it against your ear drums. As for the midrage, I would say it is neutral, but on some tracks the mids are somewhat warm. With that said.. I'm not sure if the mids are actually warm, or the IEM is just neutral and reproducing warm mids... The vocals on these are amazing as well. It is very...

Addictive, excellent-value IEMs with an incredibly vibrant, paper-y crisp texture to them.

Pros: Detail retrieval, lush/articulate across the spectrum, crisp, extremely clean and fast/dry, great "open" feel with very responsive dynamic range.

Cons: Perceivable peaks and valleys in the treble region, detail retrieval/articulation almost to a fault with some "smooth" genres like classical.

After owning the Vsonic GR07 Classic Edition for about 2 months or so, all I can say is these are absolutely brilliant.   Very articulate, fast/dry sound. These will extract details almost to a fault, to the point where classical music isn't realistically presented for the most part, due to overly in-your-face presentation. They are quite neutral, however have a full low-mid area and a 6.5kHz peak, a build to a 10K peak, then a dip around 12kHz and then another peak above that (se for example  innerfidelity for a detailed FR graph).   For critical listening, they are probably not as spectrally linear as you'd need.   However, they have a mildly scratchy/papery...

Pros: fit, value

Cons: a little plain sounding

these are nicely made and sound nice. They definitely put their sound signature stamp all over my record collection which is odd because they are fairly neutral in many respects. I feel it's somewhere in the dynamics and/or presentation that they add their unwanted stamp. For their designed purpose, on stage, I say these are spectacular and well made, but for casual and relaxed listening, they did not excite me enough to warrant further listening. But definitely worth a try considering they are reasonable priced, and measure well. give 'em a go and see if the vsonic sound stamp is 'for you'

The Best of Sub-$200 iems world

Posted

Pros: Wonderful bass, super transparent, good and accurate soundstage and detailed, adjustable-angle nozzle, couldnt be better build and p/p

Cons: harsh treble, lack of the hight-mids, a little uncomfortable to long-term wear(angular shape) , a little boring

Update on my 2nd time purchasing the GR07 in March 2013.. ...more about the GR07: warm mids IMHO: Sound: 8/10 (compared to the best iems i have ever had was W4 and Ex1000 10/10) p/p: 10/10

A Great IEM

Posted

Pros: Great overall sound, HUGE bang for the buck, nice looking IEM, works well with most set ups

Cons: can be difficult to get an proper insertion (isolation)

For the price somewhere between $150.00 and $180.00 USD, there really isn't many other competition for the price. They really get the job done well. Can get a little stale in sound sometimes but that's really a rare case. These really are great!   Great sense if air in the treble (one of the best I've heard) with great detail and extension (sibilance was not a problem for me personally).   Fairly flat mid range that is true to the recording.   Very quick impact bass (especially for a dynamic driver) that's slightly north of neutral with great extension and accuracy.   Wide soundstage, lacking a bit in height and depth, but again with pretty accurate imaging. ...

great iems

Posted

Pros: not fatiguing at all, sounds great with just about anything, very very relaxing iems

Cons: dont like how you are supposed to wear the wire up and around the ear, and if you wear it straight down its kind of a weird fit.

just wonderful little iems. wish the isolation was a little better, not bad though, just nitpicking. The microphonics are unacceptable, just a light tap on the cable and i can hear it, annoying as crap, but definitely not a deal breaker.
