Thanks for the response. However, I'm not talking about problems with the nozzles, I'm referring to discoloration on the cable.

Firstly, sorry if this has already been mentioned but this is a veeeeeeeerrrrrry long thread!

 

I'm looking at buy some GR07s and with so many owners in this thread I thought that this would be a good place to ask for some advice.

 

Basically I'm a music producer and my main reason for considering IEMs at all is isolation. I share my studio space with someone else (non producer) and I want to work without having to worry about them being annoyed by sound leakage.

 

I've heard that the GR07s are vented and so their isolation is not as good as others, so my worry is that there would still be some sound leakage from them. Can anyone who owns them offer any opinions on this from their experience?

 

Thanks, I appreciate your help!

His main concern seems to be the sound leakage annoying others in his studio space so to that.

1. Isolation is the term used for how well the headphones block out noise from your surroundings providing you with a very... well Isolated listening experience, IEM's and most closed back headphones will accomplish this! Open headphones are the only headphones you really have to worry about "Leaking sound"

2. The small vent holes don't actually leak any sound, they are just "Ports" (think bookshelf speakers) allowing some of the air produced by the IEM's to escape to produce the sound they were looking for when making them.

3. If you are using them for mastering recordings you are gonna want the GR07 MKII's not the Bass Edition, also with what I previously said that opens up A LOT more options for closed back headphones with good isolation, I myself have never produced music although I think if you are planning on buying the MKII's SOLELY for the purpose of producing there is most likely better choices, don't get me wrong the MKII's are AMAZING but the sound is of a slightly dark but neutral flavor that is well rounded, this more relaxed and lushness is GREAT for listening to tracks that have already been mastered, but this is accomplished by reducing the DB level between 1k and 10k by varying amounts to tame the higher frequencies as seen here
S
o there is the possibility that tracks you produce while using headphones with this pattern may sound a little too bright in the higher frequencies for headphones that have a brighter neutral sound without as much 1k-10k suckout, so if using the GR07 for mastering you would have to make sure the final recording sounded a little dark when using the GR07's to reference them to ensure the recording itself was neutral.

but for amateur producing they would probably work fine, and they'd be bitchin to listen to when your done making the sound and just wanna hear it!

also you may want to check out the Soundmagic HP100 it seems to be quite amazing for its 200 dollar price tag, they will need to be amped though.

Thanks for your help, that's everything I needed to know and more! I also have some studio monitors and a set of sennheiser hd 650s so I'd only be using the iems when I'm sharing the room. I'm not too worried about them sounding brighter, can easily iron out with a bit of eq work if necessary.

I'll check out the soundmagics as well though, they sound interesting.

I am selling my beloved MK2... check it here...

Reason for selling is because I need the funds and I barely use them, now. These babies deserve a good home.

You should keep them until you get your GR07 BE so you can compare them for us. cool.gif

I somehow didn't find the the Gr07s very impressive even after listening to them for awhile. Maybe it's just that it's too 'flawless' in it's presentation :/

That's why personal preferences are soooooooooo important. I completely agree with you that the GR07 may not be "impressive" (in the sense that it does not try to impress with unnatural bass or treble, such as so many other phones where you have a WOW effect when you put them on first but can't stand them anymore after 10 minutes getting headaches), but that's exactly why I (according to my preferences) like it so much. It allows me to listen to the music (as I believe it was supposed to sound) for very long time without getting any kind of fatigue.  For me, that's the great quality of the GR07s. bigsmile_face.gif
