[REVIEW] VSONIC GR07 – Labor of Love - Page 32

post #466 of 578

Finally heard a pair of these yesterday. These are very very impressive. This is what happens if you take the UM3x and make it a dynamic IEM

 

Very Neutral with good bass depth, great soundstage and it carries the dynamic driver liveliness with them.

 

Might be a good purchase for me soon

thanks!
 



From what I read about the turbines, you won't be getting more bass quantity from the GR07's.

Agreed the MT's have more bass quantity. Now if your looking for more bass quality and balanced sound then the GR07 are for you. But not quantity.

About the tips: T-200 somewhat fit, however putting them on and removing them is hard. You need to push the whole tip beyond the lowest block on the nozzle. Since then the nozzle length is limited, the deep insertion will be made problematic due to the large housing.

T-140 should fit far better. T-130 might also fit. (Will tell you once my pair returns from repair.)

T-100, T-500 and S don't fit at all.

P might fit too, since the core is slightly more elastic, but I wouldn't count on it.

The T200 I have can fit fairly securely w/o pushing them over the lowest block. T140 actually fits much tighter and require some push to get it in and out.

In my case, I could barely use these T200 on GR07 because some tips often stuck into my ear when taking GR07 out... The small ones were ok, but the medium ones were great on my RE0's , not GR07

I guess there are small variation between T200 that makes it a bit difficult to use on GR07.

post #473 of 578

Anyway, GR07 sound better on Sony Hybrids / Stock Biflages... Foam changes the sound sig, kills treble extension... 

post #474 of 578
Oh, Hybrids are compatible?
post #475 of 578

Yes. 

post #476 of 578

I've got big earchannels (L) and i'm using Sony Hybrids with R-07. They are very comfortable to me.

I'm loving their sound in all kind of rock music, they are greatsounding earphones + comfortable + durable.

I prefer them more than IE8, Monster Turbine, SE215 (more natural, similar soundstage with IE8 and i prefer more instrumental and rock music, also speed is good).

They are both fairly neutral, overall, with different treble characteristics. The GR07 has more sub bass, while the CK10 has more prominent and forward treble. The CK10 is "quicker" than the GR07, though some think the GR07's speed is a bit more "natural." Neither over emphasize bass, especially the mid-bass which many IEMs push way too hard, IMHO. The treble is not at all lacking on the GR07 (after burn in), but it's just not quite as forward as the CK10.

The build of the CK10 far surpasses the GR07, though the GR07 is probably easier to fit for most people. The CK10 is significantly smaller than the GR07. The CK10 has a metal housing while the GR07 is supposedly a hard aeronautic plastic. Both fit me great and tend to disappear from my awareness after a few minutes. The cable for the CK10 is better - no memory and less micro-phonic for everyday usage.

At twice the price, the CK10 is less of a price performer than the GR07 (which really is a steal for the price), but it is an excellent IEM for anyone who appreciates brutally honest and unforgiving treble and isn't as worried about losing a bit of lowest bass frequencies.

thanks for the quick reply angrybacongod.

i think i have made my choice: Vsonic GR07  

 

post #480 of 578
Very subjectively, another difference I personally find is that the GR07 is calming to listen to, while I find the CK10 to be energetic and exciting. They both draw me into the music, though in a different way and with different music for each.

Congrats on the decision. You will no doubt love them!
