I just recieved my GR02 Bass edition, very nice but I still prefer Brainwavz M1, they soud more natural, the GR02 offers better seal, more bass, that is ok, it has more treble, a little sibilant though, so in my opinion it's not better but the real difference are the mids I think, when I listen to the M1 everything sounds more natural, fuller, it's like when the sound is coming from a larger speaker, the GR02 sounds a little laid back, it doesn't have the body of the M1, I hope someone who heard both understands what I'm saying. The thing is I'm looking for an upgrade over the M1, the GR02 is not what I'm looking for, I want something with a similar sound signature. I also had Soundmagic PL30, really liked those too, except too much mids, not too much bass, not as natural sounding, poor seal, but still the right sound signature, what should I look for? What sounds similar but better? I listen mostly to rock/pop on sansa clip+ rockboxed, flac/mp3 320k.
I would like an M1 with more bass and bass extension but not too much, better treble and treble extension but not sibilant, I don't like the tendancy towards sibilance on GR02, better everything else, a very natural sound, if I close my eyes while I listen to music on these earphones, I want to find myself in the studio where the recording has been made, with the band singing in front of me, that is the ideea right? Am I looking for a balanced or analytical earphone?
