Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (Update: 1/4/2015: Beyerdynamic T70 Added) - Page 1630

I've had both the GR07 MK2 and GR07 BE... preferred the BE. With that said, these sonys blow them away.

As for tips, I recently bought some ortofons with a wider bore. It opens the soundstage even more, while taming the bass a bit. The Sony tips are too small at the bore and tend to sound slightly congested after switching.

I do enjoy my Bass Editions quite a bit. The thing is, the Sony's are double the price so it would be expected that the GR07s are blown away tongue.gif

I use the Sony hybrid tips mostly on my GR07s. I read through the GR07 tips thread and someone mentioned that flipping the comply tips around (so that the part that would be in your ear is facing the IEM instead) actually helps. I tried it and it actually worked! You can feel the tubing in your ear a bit at first but the muffled and muddy sound goes away and is improved slightly to my ears over the hybrids.

Paid $179 for the BE when I first had it. Paid $240 for the H3 when it was on sale. Not double the price for me... biggrin.gif

Ah... That seems like a pretty great deal. I paid $140 for the BE and the H3 are $300 right now from what I could see. Close enough I guess biggrin.gif

Yea I had the BE around the time it first released (before the color tips)... hence the full price I paid...

I've been waiting for this... but why the flagship price tag?!? The X1 was $399 when it first released. Over $1000 for these? frown.gif

Rumored to be around $1300 right? That's just too much for me so I will probably end up passing at that price. It better as well have removable pads this time around tongue.gif

Edit: Yaaaay! Hundredth post!

We can only hope it's just that... a rumor...

If they don't have removable pads at that price then I doubt they'll sell well. A headphone in the $1000+ range should last a lifetime.

Anyone want to buy watch dogs on the ps4 for $30 plus shipping? If not guess I'll be trading it in for the same price, tomorrow.

Yeah for sure. Philips would be absolutely insane not to add removable pads.

I'm not interested in buying but why are you selling? Did you finish the game already or did it not live up to the expectations as most people are saying?

Beat it and don't play it anymore. I'm not much of a gamer, like I used to be, to justify keeping it. Figured I'd let one of you get it for what I'm being offered as trade in.

Tried to trade it in at amazon for $40 but got rejected since it's a "Wal-Mart exclusive." Arseholes...

I like how the X2 looks exactly the same as the X1, catering to small heads yet again. Those drivers better give out orgasms. And if the pads aren't removable after ALL the complaints...well, shame on Philips.

A headphone I will surely never, EVER try, at that ridiculous price point.

I can't imagine them trying to jump into the $1000+ arena. Too many big boys to compete with. They'd really have to bring something special,
Especially considering its predecessor is in the low to low-mid tier price bracket and looks pretty much the same - That's going to be a hard sell.

I'm feeling productive, so you guys may see the 15G review something soon. I left it half done for a few months. Figured I may as well do it as a potential recommendation for an open, bassy, comfy headphone under $100. Not many open bassy cans, let alone, one as potent as the 15G.
