More right?  That's an understatement.  Holy hell if the GR07 isn't one of the best designed IEMs ever.  tongue_smile.gif  If only it sounded more like the new Sonys.  Ironic they are using the old Sony bio-cellulose technology.

Think about it. If you drop the numbers, we would have to actually read the reviews to get worked up. wink.gif

Hello. Someone in the iem help thread suggested I try my luck in this thread.

My Fischer Audio Eternas (v1) are about to die on me. I love these so much that I was initially thinking of buying a new pair for roughly £45. Then I thought maybe I could try something similar but better by stretching my budget to £60-70. What I had in mind was the Sennheiser IE6, Sony EX510 or the Meelec CC51. However I love the eternas' signature (great bass, soundstage, forward vocals, musicality) so much that I'm not sure something else could live up to them.

Any help or suggestions would be more than welcome. Cheers!

Try the Dunu Trident.  IMO they compare well but the Trident is not as thick sounding and slight more sparkle.  They only cost little over $50 and very fun earphone.

Wait.... you mean the RE262 has the same driver material as the E888?

No, the GR07 does.  Pretty sure the RE262 uses some sort of titanium in the driver.

Sigh, I just read the review, the description sounds very similiar to the E888, except less coloured and more balanced, in a sturdy IEM housing, that sounds pretty damn interesting, yet another IEM I have to buy (sigh) haha.

The CC51 is a lot more balanced than the Eterna (less bass, more mids & treble) and I've never heard the EX510. The IE6 should be up your alley, as well as some of the new Xears models (TD-III and Nature N3i especially).

^Actually if I buy the GR07 then I'll just want to hear the liquid crystal in the EX600 after that, it just never ends, Lol, oh well, ER-4P on the way, time to stop reading. Ciao. =)

Buy it over again nothing can replace the Eterna. 

 

It serves as a outstanding back up phone due to build quality ,isolation and comfront.

Oh I think the IE6 has it beat in build quality and comfort. I find its fit more versatile than that of the IE7 and IE8. It's just overpriced here in the states which is why it's rarely mentioned.

post #3313 of 16802

Hmmm,

 

They do look quite comfortable.

 

I really couldn't' imagine getting more comfortable then the Eterna unless I go custom.

 

They just slide ride in.

I didn't see the Beyerdynamic DTX 71 iE on Amazon but the DTX 100, 80, and 60 did come up instead and all of them are going for under $60 right now. I take it these are the older models, but not sure/clear if these are any good, because your review of the DTX71 did catch my eye, and I may be what I am looking for.
