VSONIC GR07 Impressions & Impressions Thread - Page 316

I went through the stock tips and in about five minutes found the sony hybrids small to be just right for me. Then I had to play around with adjustment on the nozzle and had a perfect fit. The nozzle adjustment will help with fit and will also sound better once they are pointed in the right direction. 

 

gL!!

This can't be said enough.

I've got another 12 hours of burn in on these and they are impressing the crap out of me. I wouldn't be disappointed at all if they had cost $300. I paid that and more for the ie80 and like the vsonic much better.

Question. The gr07 is somewhat harder to drive and would benefit from amping?

I've tried all the tips supplied with my headphones.but for some reason I can't find a pair that won't fatigued my ears.

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

^^ That is funny. biggrin.gif There is another ebay seller with the same price located on the East coast, but he did not designate whether his product was mkII so I went with the other out of CA. Very good transaction and highly recommended. The speed of shipping was amazing.

Sweet. I live in California so I fully expect the USPS guy to knock on my door right after clicking the confirm order button. biggrin.gif Let's see how this purchase turns out smily_headphones1.gif

Best of luck!! Mine went from CA to GA over 3k miles to my door in three daysbiggrin.gif Holy crap...just checked my ebay history. It was actually two days. Ordered on the 9th and received them on the 11th. eek.gif

 

Gotta love free shipping. What will be funny is if yours end up taking longer than mine did. popcorn.gif

 

Funny to me but not for you of course.

Just realised you can adjust the nozzle, must have a look tonight. So far I'm not liking the fit at all :( don't stay in well at the gym 

post #4738 of 6419

I don't use them for exercise, so I can't say if the nozzle adjustment will help in that regard. It will certainly improve comfort and possibly sound quality. So it's worth doing regardless.

Today I decided to try the gr07 through the e07k/ipod classic and lod. There was a nice improvement. Certainly not day and night but certainly appreciable. They are much easier to drive now and  just seem to have better dynamics. Smoother on the mids and the bass hits a little harder but is still very tight and controlled. Color me happy!! biggrin.gif

Hey guys!   Been awhile, but I was a die hard GR07 fan for a long time.   Just wanted to share what happened to me.    The rt channel went out in the second pair I've had within a year, so when I sent them back under warrantee to Lendmeurears for replacement, I picked up my RE262's once again.    Totally fell in love with their sound, and when I got my new pair of GR07 MKII's I couldn 't listen to them.   The seemed very sibilant(even after 200hrs burnin), and too bright and Vshaped, meaning exaggarated bass.   So back to the RE262's then got the sony mdr 7550's for $170 off ebay and fell in love with their neutral, not bright or Vshaped sound.   If the GR07 are considered a warm neutral IEM, then the 7550s are a huge step up as a more natural, warm, non-V shaped neutral sound, and for $20 to $30 more than the GR07 its a bargain.   Drawbacks of the 7550 include a poorer seal, you can hear whats going on around you, wind noise and they are heavier and bulkier, but SQ wise they are a definate step up, IMHO.
