^^So the sony hybrids actually sound and fit better than the sony look alike's that come with the gr07? I've already used the look alike's.

I think that would be a preference thing, I preferred GR07 hybrid (left) Then again I had no fit problems with, TF10, EX600 for example, same with GR07. Actually the only IEM to cause me some minor problems with fit has been Rockit R-50, (left side only)

Really tip rolling is about trial and error, what suits the user. imo.

I'm going to give the real sony tips a try. Not really having issues but I've always heard good things about the sony's. Does anyone have the smallest sony tips that they're not using?

See....Click to zoom in and have a look.

Left: GR07 Hybrid

Right: Sony Hybrid





Although they look very similar, the smallest alteration in tip shape, bore, size, length adjusts the sound of an earphone. smile.gif

Remember though the changes are rather subtle in many cases.

 

I find them both satisfactory and can use them interchangeably, but I'm sure this is a YMMV thing

what tips do u guys usually prefer on the gr07?

post #4776 of 6691

I currently use the genuine sony hybrid greens, as those fit me the best.  Comparing them to the stock hybrids, they are a slightly different shape (as you can see re-posted in BobJS's reply above) but they are also a bit softer, and seem to form to my ear canal slightly better.  I did use the stock hybrids before, but found the tips that come pre-installed fit me best before switching to the green sony hybrids.  I've not noticed a change in sound as long as I get a good seal.

Hello, 

 

Im considering of buying the Gr07, but before buying I have a question: does it play well on iTouch? or does it required an amp?

 

thanks!

I just wanted to say that these GR07s (I have 3 pairs --- 2 MKIs (which I think are slightly better), and 1 MKII ..... are THE single most expensive purchase I have ever made.  Why, you might ask?  Because these are all I ever need in the IEM world --- I don't even look for another IEM.  So I've been spending money like crazy on full size headphones and headphone amps.

 

If the d**n GR07s weren't so good, I might still be exploring "down here" in the IEM world.   Thanks a lot, VSONIC.

Remember the burn-in. They can sound a bit harsh straight out of the box.

 

Manufacturers recommend 200-300 hours burn-in for those bio-cellulose drivers to sound their best. I didn't find they changed any further after 100 hours or so, but YMMV.

 

They are without doubt one of the best IEM's I have ever had in my ears at their price, and compete well with IEM's at twice their price.

I thought that I'd read the mkI had the bio-cellulose drivers, but that the mkII didn't, no?

They're both using biocellulose. The only confirmed difference in the mkII is that it has more silver in the cable.
