I dunno but I never find GR07 sibilant at all. I actually kinda wanting more from it. Maybe I'm used to the MX980/HE-400 treble which is extended very well and nicely detailed.

Don't get me wrong, I REALLY like these IEMs, but I've probably been spoiled by the forward, silky mids of SE530's and SM3's. (But those are $400 range IEMs.) That said, I would not call the GR07 mids "recessed" by any means. I find that overall sound sig to be pretty close to flat. But the mids just aren't quite as forward as I'm used to. But I will say, dollar for dollar, I've never heard a better IEM than GR07!
I think the mids would have been more ideal if the bass was less dominant. I love its characteristics that is fast while being able to extend low at the same time. But it gives a hint of overpowering other frequencies. I think their highs that lack air is also a factor that makes the bass sound dominant to me. But hey, we're very wrong to compare them to much pricier gears out there!

Bass guitars and kick drums are ever so slightly forward from neutral but i think its a good trade off to have awesome mids. The treble appears that it could be the same as mk2's, where they extend very well, but lack some air and with some sibilance. Out of the box the sibilance is terrible, so i let it burn in for 3 days at a considerable volume before i took another listen and it has made a big improvement already. These IEM's really do require burn in guys.
If the bass edition really has more bass, then it's not for me as i find the regular ones (mk.1) to have slightly overpowering bass.

Edit: I only get one pair of the bi-flange tips, which seems to be medium sized. Some states that it contains 2 pairs.
It really depends on the size of you ear canal. I use the included fake sony hybrids blue what I believe to be medium-sized. Mine also contains one pair of bi-flange and it sounds horrible to my ears.Edited by autoexec - 2/5/13 at 5:09am
