So, when reviews of the EX1000 first came pouring in, I thought, "Wow, this is exactly what I'm looking for in a dynamic driver IEM!"
But, alas, the price was too much for my wallet to bear...
Then, when reviews of the GR07 first came pouring in, I thought, "Wow, this is exactly what I'm looking for in a dynamic driver IEM!"
I then looked at the price, and thought, "This looks like a winner!"
It looks like both, regardless of price, are excellent IEMs --- and both take a similar approach to their technology, employing large, multi-layer, specialty polymer (biocellulose for the GR07, liquid crystal for the EX1000) diaphragms.
The difference is that the EX1000 is positioned a bit more upmarket with its shell materials and replaceable cable, while the GR07 is, while also well-built and well-appointed, a bit more value-priced.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think anyone has as of yet listened to both IEMs, but I'm dying to know how they compare sonically.
Right now, I'm inclined to buy the GR07, but can only listen to the EX1000 and FX700 as top-tier reference points.
