Because all of my experience is with full sized hp's, I find myself wanted to compare the gr07 to a pair of full sized cans. The closest that I've come up with so far for comparative sound signature is interestingly the hd650. Just an observation. 

 

Looks like that I got in the game too late as this thread seems to be inactive now. Oh well, there is lots of material to read through. biggrin.gif

 

The older MKI(-2?) comes closer to the (darker) HD650 sound than the MKII I believe most who've heard both will agree.

That would depend on the version of the 650 though, right? I don't hear the dark, laid back sound on the newer silver screened drivers.

 

Also, stupid question but I need to mark these so that they are easier to distinguish left from right. Any suggestions? I thought about a small piece of red tape. I don't want to do anything permanent.

Well, you don't really need to mark the housings - its pretty easy to distinguish left from right just give it a few days to get used to them. If you hold the right housing in your right hand before inserting it (with the cable facing down) you'll notice that the nozzle is pointing left and your fingers are comfortably holding the right side of the housing and if you held the left piece with the same hand you have to grab the housing at the side with the nozzle and that's not comfortable to hold.

 

edit: Actually, here are same bad quality pics to try to show you better. I'm using gr04 as I sold my gr07 recently. The first pic shows the right hand holding the right piece properly> You can see on the second pic how I'm being barely able to hold the left housing in the right hand the same way and the third is the left housing held comfortably in the right hand bu facing towards your body. 

 

 

 

I have no idea why the pics are rotated this way when I upload them

Haha...thanks. Still getting used to iem's. You're probably right though. In a few days it will seem like second nature. 

post #4715 of 6493

It's actually much simpler than even holding them.  The right one's driver and cable both point TOWARDS you when the cable is oriented down.  Then once you flip it and the cable over your ear it points away and thus into your ear canal.

A thanks goes out to you wonderful folks, as I have made my first venture into better quality in ears. I received my gr07 mkii's yesterday. I noticed that they are a bit finicky when it comes to how they sit in your ear. I guess I need to get used to that. Overall fantastic sounding IEM's and I'm anxiously waiting to pass a significant amount of burn in time to get a chance to really listen to these. Thanks again :)

^^ Hey cool...welcome to headfi!! Nice first purchase. biggrin.gif If you haven't found out yet, the nozzels are adjustable. This is what has given me the perfect fit. Takes some patience to get the angle just right.

Yep, not much happened to mine for the first 50 - 100 hours I honestly thought I was wasting my time, and as MattTCG will discover burning in GR07 becomes a choir you're their slave for day's of endless burn ceremony's. But some where inbetween 150 - 250 hours magic happens. wink.gif

I never have luck like that with shipping. I couldn't be happier. I know that the sound signature is "evolving" but I can tell that they are very good and will fall well within the type of signature that I enjoy. 

I appreciate that the bass is just as present as the ie80 but just not as loose. It reminds me of going from my d2k to my he400 on the change in the bass. The fit is supreme. I haven't even changed the angle of the nozzle or even the stock tips!! Amazing. I already enjoy these more than the ie80 at less than half the cost.

No wonder this thread is so long. biggrin.gif

I remember telling you to try these in the IE80 thread. Look what happened. tongue.gif I 'may' buy them again when the next revised model comes out.

^^ By revised do you mean gr08? If those, it looks like those will be expensive.

I'm considering V7007 (GR08), Though there's a revised GR07 model apparently coming out with a metal housing? Pretty sure that's right. Two earphones I'm interested in this year, one being GR08 the other T-Peos H-200. (hybrids) Unfortunately both will be in excess of $250 each

What is v7007? That is the gr08? I was hearing like $500+ on that. Way out of my league. redface.gif

I think the last word on these is low $300 area?

Never heard the dark screened drivers.  I owned the silver screened ones.  I thought they were dark.  To each his own.  Actually, I wouldn't compare the VSonics to the Sennheiser sound at all.  They really have a unique sound.  I fall asleep more nights than not listening to these gems.

Yes GR08 = V7007. Vsonic changed the name.

The current price atm we have officially from Vsonic is 1999 Renminbi/Chinese Yuan. Which converts in US dollars to $320 (roughly)

That is also a decent amount of money for me to outlay, especially with T-Peos H-200 possibly coming at the beginning of February too.

The GR07 mkII has been my first dive into the world of IEMs, and so far I'm loving them. It's amazing to hear little intricacies in music that I didn't realize were even there. They're built well, and the cord seems very strong, and looks nice too.

 

Anyway, I have very small ear canals, and the smallest tips seem to fit me the best out of the stock selection. However, I find them to be uncomfortable for long periods of use. Any suggestions on tips of similar size that might be more comfortable?

 

Thanks much.
