Ya, I was prostelatizing not too long ago when I got my hands on the GR04, they really sound great. In the GR04/GR06 threads, it was established that the GR04 is a significant step above the GR06. I'm quite happy with the GR04, and the price is so good right now (~$50) that it's really quite mindblowing. There is one major problem, the GR04 makes me really curious about the GR07, but I think I'd rather try something different all together. Anyway, you can't go wrong with the Vsonic line up, I've heard the GR99-GR04 and each represents a fantastic value at their respective price points. The only thing to consider is the soon-to-be-released VSonics, like the GR08, GR09, and VC02... The first two will be a bit more expensive, but the GR08 is going to have the same driver set up as the $1000 AKG K3003...

Yes, now that they are $400. They were $500 until a month or so ago. There is also the new 1964-V3. which is a sizable improvement over the 1964-T and nearly on-par with the Alclair Reference.

Did you have or are there any reports about cable fatigue with the GR07? I Just need to make sure because the IEM costs alot.. Thanks.. I like its moving tip for extra comfort and over the ear design for eliminating the microphonics.. I believe the sound would be great based on the reviews from other sites..
If in case it has cable issues.. I'll still have the etymotic ER4S in mind.. I don't think I'll get much out of the W2's sound quality.. Again thanks for the reply.. By the way if ever I'll choose GR07, where can I find a great deal about those earphones? I'll keep posted..

 

I haven't seen any complaints about GR07 cables. You want to find something explicitly labeled "GR07 MK2", like on the lendmeurears page. I don't know what all of these other editions are. VSonic nomenclature is confusing even before you bring in the different editions because GR01 > GR07 > GR04 > GR06 > GR02 > GR99. The numbers seem to be pretty much random.

Thanks anyways..

 

To Joker, are there different versions of the GR07? I think I am seeing 3 different versions..

The flagship version http://www.ebay.com/itm/VSONIC-GR07-R07-Flagship-Version-Inner-Ear-Earphones-/290567696399

 

This one with the hard shell which says new version case http://www.ebay.com/itm/VSonic-GR07-Pro-Dynamic-Noise-Isolation-Earbuds-Innovic-Hard-Shell-Case-/200828144549?forcev4exp=true&forceRpt=true

 

And the last one as GR07 Bass edition http://www.ebay.com/itm/VSONIC-GR07-BASS-Edition-High-Fidelity-Professional-Stereo-Inner-Ear-Earphones-/380504885821?pt=US_Headphones&hash=item5897dbca3d

 

I'm getting confused out here.. Please help.. Advance thanks for the replies..

the Vsonic GR01 is more "flagshippy" than the GR07?

how different does it sound?

and why isn't it on their official website ?

Yeah the GR01 is technically the current flagship for Vsonic, although didn't gain as much interest as the GR07 since there are already excellent TWFKs out there. As for the sound, I like to sum it up to be somewhat similar to the GR07, but with less bass quantity although quality is top notch, and with a much better treble. Detail wise, the GR01 edges out the GR07. smile.gif

Microphonics are just how much static and noise is produced in the earphones if the cable is moved, tangled, played with, etc. Less microphonics is better.

Would playing music loud make it unnoticable even on high microphonic iems
