Hey guys i really want to know from the hardcore fans of GR07, what other IEM do you graduate to? Given the fact that GR07 is a great IEM.. you gotta graduate to something that brings identical or better music to ears. Although i have ordered the GR07 Bass Edition as well yesterday... that's cos of all the great reviews in here plus cos of the good deal. I can spend a few more dollars on another set if IEM.. maybe 300 (plus/minus).. but i am still debating and reading around.
Few months back when i was researching on upgrading from the GR07 a lot of members pointed me out to Sony MDR-EX1000, but that was pretty expensive then.. but then a debate started that instead of going the Sony MDR-EX1000, it was better to go the Sony MDR-EX 7550 way, has anyone tried out any of these? are they worth getting? Its just that i do want something new, love my gr07 and want another love of my life. :)
i personally am a huge fan of the gr07 be edition, to be honest i don't want to "upgrade" even messaging to joker i will paste our conversation hope thats okay. he didn't seem to think there was much "upgrade" from the gr07, and the re400 i own, more like side grades and like different tuning and preferences but in terms of clarity, and technical performance, not really. customs although are a whole other league i don't want to get into that, far to expensive for my wallet to handle.
heres my question
wow they are phenomenal (GR07 BE) i was expecting a huge bass boost from the re400s.
the sheer speed in is jaw dropping
the treble is actually not that siblant as i thought too but the in your opinion how do they compare?
the re400s and the be edition at least? both sound great but i'm just surprised that their $179 compare to the re400s which is $99.
even though now its on discount at $139. thats quite a bit of price jump.
heres jokers response
Nothing shocking there, I think the RE-400 is about on-par with the GR07 and many other higher-end sets, such as the Shure SE535 ($400) and Westone UM3X ($350). At that level differences are primarily sound signature and tuning, not technical performance. HiFiMan has always been able to do an excellent job with the latter.
back to me now,
i'm a student on a tight budget (clearly not as tight as i first thought since i'm buying all these iems turbines(50$) re400 ($130) gr07 be (100$)
so if i'm getting much detail and i dun think i'm gonna bother, but it'd be nice to trade or to do some listening tests/sessions with other iems though, always nice to see how the same song is depicted from a different perspective
