The bass edition is only a little bassier than the regular GR07 so not really competition for the EPH-100 in the bass quantity department. My review of the GR06 covers the differences between that and the GR07 in more detail than I can recall now.
Thanks for the recommendation joker! Anything else possibly in the $30-$60 range or not really worth spending more then what the m6 costs unless I went much higher?
I was considering just buying some ear hooks/guides and buying something different like the astrotec am80 or sound magic e30, any comment on those vs the meelectronic m6? I like the over the ear style on the m6's but I definitly don't mind spending slightly more and v-moda offers ear hooks for iems for $8 and i need a reason to buy something from them to get my xl pads for my m100's anyway.
The problem is that it's hard to say how higher-end units will fare during workouts, especially if they weren't designed for active use. For example, I know that BA drivers don't fare particularly well with moisture so I really wouldn't recommend the AM90 from Astrotec or A151 from MEElec for active use. I tend to think that cheaper is better for something that might fail due to sweat or an accidental cable yank.
The E30 might not be what you're looking for due to its more polite bass and poorer isolation (compared to the M6, at least) but it does sound great. The Astrotec AM-800 and VSonic GR06 sound even better, though again not as bassy as the M6, but I don't know how well they will hold up to gym use.
I use MEElec earhooks on a lot of my earphones (all of my GR07s and my GR06, for example). I think they were $5 for 3 pairs or something like that. I like them better than most other hooks since they are soft silicone and don't have any annoying seams or ridges. Thinksound earhooks are nice but pricy at $10 or so. Sennheiser and my old V-Moda ones hurt my ears.
You just weren't sure which Christmas
