I don't think it lacks soundstage depth at all..where it actually falls short is in the height. This is the cause of the dynamics problem and more closed in sound stage.

 

It's almost like trying to stand up, but you find yourself hitting your head on the ceiling.

 

Of course, the other aspects of the sound compensate for this, but I just found it interesting enough to share.

 

Interesting I'll check this out.

 

Edit: I can see what you're saying but I don't have anything with a big sound stage to compare! I tend to prefer an intimate presentation.

Were you refering to Jays Foams or silicone tips? Jays Foams are one of my favourite foam tips for the GR07, but they were discontinued some time ago and are almost impossible to find nowadays... frown.gif

You're talking about this, right: http://zound.co.kr/shop/shopdetail.html?branduid=164&search=jays&sort=

 

That's a great price! I'm still supplied for some time, as a while back I was able to source a retail pack with 5 pairs but it was a lot more that $2 a pair for me...

It is the jays silicone. I've never tried their foams. I'm not usually a fan of foams anyway.

That being said, I think I'll need to stick with the stock GR07 tips (not hybrid clones). The jays silicone have a wider bore and treble can get a little to splashy for me at times. The stock tips treble stays under control but the tip is not quite as wide, so I get a little less isolation and deep bass. Oh the compromises we must make.

Edit: Turns out there is an 8k peak that causes ringing for me. Foam tips seem to resolve this issue, so I've ordered some jays foams. Since then I've discovered the MH1c tips are golden on them. Very rare ringing instances.

You know, I'm definitely feeling the treble on the gr07 getting better with more run-time. My current EQ setting on the treble section is boosted by an average of 3 dB. Perhaps it's just brain burn-in, although I want to believe that my gr07 is improving.

Hows the sound with foams vs silicones?

For me, indistinguishable. Foamies don't fit my ears too well (my ear canals are too small perhaps), so they hurt.

My package only came with one pair of foamies, unless I lost a pair.

When I first got my GR07s, I took a look at them, and they went straight into the round file :P

I actually got like, 10 pairs of them with mine and they all decored after using them just once or twice.
