Joker, I just wanted to say that I got a box from a fellow head-fier with some Aurisonics ASG-2s as well as V-Sonic GR07 Bass Editions, and I have to say the GR07 BEs are just about the ideal tonality for me, maybe I'd want something with slightly more forward vocals and a touch more air, but other than that, these are excellent. I kind of fixed the isolation issues I had when I had my GR07 MK2 by putting the stems of some Klipsch tips I cut up onto the stem of the GR07, and then attaching Meelec tri-flange tips I cut down to bi-flanges for comfort. They still don't isolate very well for me though. Any suggestions for something like the GR07 that also isolates better? Maybe the Fidue A81?
Honestly I'm not convinced the A81 is as good as the GR07 quite yet. Jury's still out on it though. I would say Phonak 232 with Comply tips but that costs quite a lot more and doesn't have more forward vocals. The Alclair Reference would be even better but its bass is more in line with the GR07 than the GR07BE.
Whoa, even though the A81 is almost twice as much as the GR07, you don't think it sounds quite as good?
Does the Phonak 232 isolate very well though? Those ports on the back make it seem otherwise... And I know I've asked this before (against the GR07 and UE900), but how would you say the bass and upper midrange (female vocal area?) compares on the 1964 V3 to the GR07 BE?
