oh wow at their new price point i think think to be quite honest if i knew this a few months back i wouldn't have gotten the re400s and opt for the gr07

 

love the re400 to death but the constant worries on the cable is just frustrating

 

gr07 is definitely built better

 

i was going to recable my be editions if they one day bite the dust but recabling costs about the same as buying a new gr07 (not be edition but mk2 but i think thats still good, new journey all over)

 

plus it comes in silver!!!

It's important that we share our OWN experiences, not base our knowledge on the experiences of others. Everyone hears differently. 


i believed the same.

but going from brainwavz m3 to gr07 mk2 was a shock to my ears,,,the treble was unbearable.

i burned them for 100 hours without hearing at all.now they sound awesome.

 

but i get u,i am not 100% sure on burn in and would like to compare mine with a fresh pair to be sure,,,till then its a myth only.

Well, it seems that Comply has changed their tips (for the worse). They look far cheaper than a year ago and slip off my GR07 MK2's. I ordered the Ts-500's. I had a pair from last year that fit fine, but the new ones...not so good. :(

 

So I went ahead and ordered the Sony Hybrids from Sony directly (they were 25% off).

Ok, I just read about the issues with Sony and Vsonic, and am now not so sure anymore that the Vsonic Classic Color Edition will have the bio-cellulose driver the previous ones had. Did I just buy a completely different sounding Vsonic? 

 

Since I didn't own one before, I have no idea how these are supposed to sound. Let's at least hope I like them when they arrive, bio-cellulose or not...

+1 on the sony hybrids! whatever they use on the eartips is good (seals so well) but i just wish they come with more sizes

 

the mediums fit me on the turbines allowing for deeper insertiong

 

but the gr07 inserts more shallowly so i need to modd my second pair of hybrids to fit now its great

Oh thats interesting, I wonder if there is any way to verify the driver type on this model? Is there a Vsonic rep on this forum?

I bought the mkii classic based on the glowing reviews of the mkii and would feel disapointed if it sounds different.

Has anyone had a chance to test both?

Bummer. I was afraid of that. What did you mod? How, rather?

i'm not sure how much of a mod it really is but all i did was put a slightly bigger eartip inside the sony hybrids

 

the eartip has to have a bigger apeture ( i put the one of the ones included in the re400)

 

it gives the eartip more ridgity so it seals a little better, the extra eartip also puts more pressure on the sony hybrids to grab onto the nozzle better heres some pics

Hello everyone!

 

I am looking to buy one of the GR07 versions as well but I am not sure which one to buy atm. Since I like listening to trance music the most, I guess that the BE version will suit me the most? Also, I am very curious about the differences between the new classic version and BE. I am surprised why the prices of the classic versions are so much lower(40-50 dollars cheaper depending on outlets). BTW, where would you guys recommend on buying these IEMs in terms of reliability of the service in case it dies overtime and the pricing. Thank you!

post #6027 of 6309

Is there anybody know the difference between GR07 classic and the GR07. Are they pretty similar build like mk2 and the base edition or completely different? Cuz from the Chinese sites people are saying they are pretty much the same. But here in head-fi I noticed someone metioned they are going to use complete different drive than the previous version.

i wish i tried both but based on my knowledge and personal experience i would take the be edition and comparing to the hifiman re400s made electronic and trance more enjoyable

 

but if your looking for bass explosion no not even the be edition will help you there

post #6030 of 6309

i think even mk2 are excellent as far as bass goes,,,excellent.

i wouldn't want more really
