The SM2 won't really give you the tighter bass or the depth you're looking for compared to the EPH-100. The CTM-200 is much flatter in response and definitely isn't what you want.
To Joker and generally everyone:
Regarding the highs of an IEM.. the only thing that i am not satisfied from gr07 is the highs.. When i tried the hje900 i noticed that the highs had a nice micro detailed and crispy type but not particular sibilance. It wasnt that much and i guess some of the best iems in the highs might have this thing and even more developed.. On the gr07 this is totally missing in my opinion.
What do you thing?
P.S Joker do you have in mind to audition any of the AT CKM500, Meelec A161 and jvc fxd80?
The GR07 is hot in the treble for my taste as well - personally I think the GR01 does highs better. It all depends on what you're willing to spend and what you're willing to sacrifice in comparison to the GR07.
I should be able to audition the CKM500 and A161 in the near future but I already know what the A161 sounds like from the Fischer version I've reviewed.
Joker this past weekend I purchased the GR06 and RE262 thanks to your recommendations. In the past, I purchased the XE200Pro as well based on your recommendation, and absolutely love them. Thank you, |joker|.
Quick question: Have you ever tried the GR06 with a 70 ohm resistor cable? I hear that driving them after applying the adapter helps balance them out. I'm just wondering if you've ever tried that.
I have a 64ohm adapter somewhere but I haven't tried it with the GR06.
