Yeah, they are the same IEM with one having a mic function for Apple (HF3) and the other for for anything else (HF2).

so what is the point of 28 ohm impedance here?

I think that they measure impedance in 1.1 khz.

Look at the GR07 MK2. According to VSONIC, the sibilance issue on the original GR07 has been reduced on the new version... rolleyes.gif

I am not able to see MK2 version of GR07 on their official website.

 Their website isn't really updated - they wrote the note regarding to the sibilance in a Chinese social-web.

I have a question, I got the 8320s at your suggestion, and I really love them. But, I really wish they were smoother on the back, those jagged edges hurt like hell! Is there anything in the ~$20 range (a little bit more is okay) that sounds just as sweet but has a smoother back side with fewer jagged edges? I've got about 15 hrs of transit coming up and could use something to block out the world.

 

Thanks!

Look in the GR07 topic. I recently posted a link there to an eBay seller who's selling that new version...

The 8320s are an enormous steal, most IEMs under $100 don't sound that good. If you want that level of sound quality, a similar sound signature, with more comfortable fit and REALLY good noise isolation, Shure SE215 is worth looking at, but they are tough to find for less than $100, usually $90-$100, $150 for the one with apple/android/blackberry. Maybe look for a used pair on the FS forum. I use them for commuting on the train every day, better isolation than my SM3 v2, I think they actually sound very similar to the 8320 but have better defined bass and a less grainy sound.

 

Overall though you are going to have to work a miracle to find something that sounds as good as the 8320 for under $50, let alone $20. Fischer Audio Eterna has more bass but similar all-around sound quality with more extended treble, it has good but not stellar isolation, and will cost around $60-$70.

I just thought I'd post it. I emailed monoprice and asked that if they work closely with their manufacturers, and it was possible, that they perhaps redesign the 8320 very slightly. First, a smooth back to the case. It can be the same shape internally, but remove the sharp edges, and replace the microphonic cable with something slightly nicer. They said they would compile user feedback and consider a redesign!

I mean, I wouldn't expect them to be out tomorrow, but they said they would like customer feedback and want to work on designs.
