Multi-IEM Review - 352 IEMs compared (Pump Audio Earphones added 04/03/16 p. 1106) - Page 518

post #7756 of 16803

Does anyone here think it's worth spending that extra 8 dollars to upgrade from a vsonic gr99 to the vsonic gr02? From the looks of things, it doesn't seem like the gr02 is a major improvement over the gr99 but rather a nice and small upgrade. Please take into consideration only the sound itself and less on the other aspects as they are not of as much importance to me. Oh and how do these IEMs fare when playing alternative rock as that is what my library is mainly composed of.

 

Thanks in advance. :D

Well, it depends. For me the GR02 Bass is worth the upgrade as its mids are cleaner and the treble is a lot more to my liking for just 8 bucks difference. About your last question - the GR02 is great with any kind of metal or rock and just makes me get up and do air drums and guitar solos.

I have the 02 BE and a friend the 99. The 99 is larger, and harder to fit as well. The accessories also aren't as nice. If you don't care about the accessories, then you can get the 02 from lendmeurears for even less without all of the tips.

Ok, guys I need some help.. 

 

I'm selling/sold my Pro 900's and I'm looking for some high quality I.E.M's... Now lets not get to crazy but I am willing to spend in the $350 range so I do it right the first time (lets hope) I tend to learn towards the bass heavier cans... Who am I kidding I'm a bass head!! If it don't wobble I dont like it!! basshead.gif All kidding aside I already know that if it doesn't have the right sound I won't like it so out of the choices I have here (and others of course if you can think of something) which would you say is going to make me the happiest. Now please understand I'm sort of a sophisticated bass head (if there is such a think) so I understand that these aren't going to shake my skull but I would like the pair that has the cleanest, punchiest, and fastest bass to keep up with the music and movies I watch. So what do you guys think!! I have a e11 and that will also be upgraded soon once I find the right portable amp. If you have suggestions on that too that would be awesome!!

 

 

Here's what I'm considering..

 

GR07 - $179

SM3 V2 - $349

RE 262 - $149 (maybe) 

Velodyne vPulse - $89

Fischer Eterna - ?? (very hard to find a place that will ship to the US and is trustworthy.. 

Ultimate Ears TripleFi 10 - $169

 

Thanks again guys, 

 

Cleanest, punchiest, and fastest bass will probably mean less bass quantity and vice versa. The GR07 is clean and punchy but not 'bassy'. The Eterna and vPulse are bassy but not as clean. For heavy but high quality bass the best earphone I've heard is still the JVC FX700, but you probably won't find a new one in your budget. Still, I think the GR07 might not have quite enough midbass for a self-proclaimed basshead - I feel like the Yamaha EPH-100 or JVC FX500 would be a better choice in that price range.

Something less expensive? How about Brainwavz M2 or a balanced armature like Astrotec AM-90/Meelec A151, I've been reading about them, never heard a balanced armature before, do they share something with M1?

 

Nice but definitely a sidegrade from the M1 more so than an upgrade.

My PFEs just broke and I've loved everything about them from first listen, but sadly their  price has been raised and I'm a broke college student so those extra $30 puts them out of my range frown.gif

 

I would definitely try the B2 instead of paying $170+ for another PFE.

I've never said the Miracle can't be improved on, only that it's the best IEM I've heard to date by a margin.

That's driver flex - the Monster Turbine IEMs are quite notorious for it.

For $8 I would do it just for the comfort. Both would be too bassy for me for rock but if you want heavy bass/v-shaped sound they are among the best in the <$100 range.

thats the only reason i was stressing on cc51 , m4 is a hit and miss .
 

post #7761 of 16803

never mind man .

post #7762 of 16803
I'm gonna order the comply tips for the Turbines. I'm sure I'll have to EQ the hell out of them with the tips, but I need comfort. The Hybrids are starting to bother me. I almost feel like getting the JVC Marshmallows just so I can nab the tips, but I'd like to try the Comply first.

hey  joker , you think ue350 is not water resistant ?

comply are good , but they dont last more then 3-6 months unless you clean them every month , whats wrong with monster faom tips ? i love that , cuz they dont catch dirt and easy to clean . or even the soundmagic foam tips ? monster are equally priced but the soundmagic are really cheap .

post #7765 of 16803
I dunno, I just heard of Comply's awesome comfort, which is why I went for them.
post #7766 of 16803

didnt your turbine came with foam tips ? all the foam tips are nearly same n comly are hyped heavily . the only thing over monster is comly are squeeze able .

post #7767 of 16803
No, it's all silicone.
post #7768 of 16803

thats bad , my friends pro gold came with those foam tips . then try the comply .
 

post #7769 of 16803
I got the basic Turbines, so I'm sure it doesn't have all the bells and whistles as the Pros. And lol, I already ordered them. So i basically wasted $12 on the Sony Hybrids ($4 to ship next day)... rolleyes.gif

There are foam tips beyond Complys - Complys are simply the most well-known but Monster's own Foam Supertips and generic foam tips from ebay are closer to marshmallow tips and generally last longer.

I didn't test them. The UE site says they are, I'm just surprised it wasn't stressed on the packaging.
