If I wasn't happy with these, I already had the hybrids in my amazon cart haha. Good to know that they are also good for this. It was just a pleasant surprise. This is a picture from the lendmeurears site. On the right is the VSonic R04's wearing more standard looking tips. On the left are the GR07's with their slightly longer more tapered tips. the holes are reasonably wide though but it doesn't seem to matter. Compared to my previous IEM's tips, its night and day.

Spare filter is always a good thing, but the better thing to do is to keep your ear canal as clean as possible. Earwax is always an issue with IEM and especially worst if you are the type with a lot of earwax.  Keeping the IEM clean is just the basic, then you won't need to use those spare filter.

 


Always lurking on the IEM thread :P

 

I think keeping your ear clean is your best bet too. However, I have a nephew who will ruin a pair of IEM's even if he does clean his ears daily... It's just a personal thing. If your ears produce an ungodly amount of wax, I'd stay way from IEM's in general, or definitely get some with a filter of some sort.

removing seems a easier method, but  of course not all filters are removable Well, quite a few member manage to pull the old filter out by force and stuff a foam pad in as a kind of mod.

does it changes the sound? It will, for good or bad.

yeah, and thanks for the cleaning tips

That's my picture from the GR07 review. The R04 is using a Sony hybrid clone.

Well, there is also the Comply foam tips with the filter built-in.

Good Call! Do you find them to affect the sound much?

Yes, the Comply TX series does affect the sound more than the other Comply. Generally it is better to pair it with more analytical sounding IEM. The new Ts series is probably the least affecting of all the Comply.

hey clieos

may i ask why you consider the "Monster" design a Con for those Dunu's ? is it because what you mentioned that they could have made a more original design?

Because DUNU is a very capable company on manufacturing and doesn't need to make lookalike products to gain recognition. They can do better than that. Do you want your Ferrari to look like a Porsche?

i dont disagree on that, but it just doesnt sound like that when you put it in "Cons". i'd expect things like 'fit' , 'comfort' , 'isolation' , 'price' ,etc to be a Con

when i read that, i thought you meant that even the Monster IEM have a Con with that design

... and hence this is a concise writeup and why you should read the full review for more detail.

post #193 of 1225

hi

i want to get the RE0, but first i want to be sure which version to ask for. i saw already 3 versions!

i prefer the straight plug, but lower microphonics and lower memory cable is better.

any info? thanks

Don't think you can ask for a specific version of RE0. Whatever is the current version in stock, you'll get.

 

post #195 of 1225

well, i did mailed them and they said i can ask for a version, and i can get it if it's in stock
