Well, I'm using mine completely flat. It's pretty balanced and close enough to neutral sounding to not feel the need to temper with the eq. I actually like the slight hotness in the lower treble, especially with female vocals but I know some more sensitive people may find it harsh. I also really enjoy the gr04 flagship - it has more upfront mids compared to the gr07 and while it lacks the extension of the gr07, it is still amazingly good for its price (or no price if you got it for free with your gr07), so overall I'm really impressed with Vsonic and I'll be awaiting eagerly their new products -let's just hope the world won't come to an end this December.
If I were playing are low volume, flat would be okay. However, the sibilance and warmth would be too distracting at moderate volume. This is true for both male and female vocals.
Mostly vocal. The deep, soulful type. Every now and then, I also enjoy a nice instrumental "new age" song. I don't often listen to "fun" music, but I do gravitate to some melodic trance/techno songs. For everything I listen to, I use the EQ above. It allows me to blast the volume pretty high, if I so choose, without making any part of the frequency spectrum glaring. I dislike most types of aggressive, raucous, carnal sounding music... As a rule of thumb, if you wouldn't let your 5-year-old child listen to it, I likely would also avoid it.
Some artists I admire: Quang Le, Jia Peng Feng, Rimi Natsukawa, Jake Shimabukuro, DJ Satomi.
