They do get better with burn-in, although they should sound better than anything skullcandy out of the box. Maybe you're not getting a good seal, try wearing some of the many other assorted tips.

If anyone is interested, I'm selling my MKiis in the classifieds.

Great sound that I'm sorry I have to let go of!. The TF10 and W4 don't like to share!

its starting to sound better already after 3 hrs hmmm i guess i gotten used to the sound signature of the skullcandy that was all lively. Any recommendation for amps? I am really new to this stuff.

Ah, don't know why I didn't think of that, thanks!

Does anyone know any reputable places in the UK for recabling?

The 07s are pretty easy to drive so an amp may not make a huge difference but if you'd like a place to start, the JDS cmoy is great bang for your buck!

The cable on mine is green aswell, it hasnt and wont affect sound quality in anyway. So unless you can hear a difference since its turned green why get them recabled..??

There seems to be a bit of an issue with cable failure over time. I had mine for about a year before the channel in the left ear piece started intermittently dropping out when the cable was moved near the jack. Even after having it re-terminated, it eventually started up again. I like these a heck of a lot and I knew BTG had re-cabled these before, so I went with it: copper wire, black sheathing below the split, right-angled Oyaide plug + MEElectronics tips and I'm good to go. It wasn't cheap (about $100 with shipping to Vietnam and the Oyaide plug option), but I am very satisfied with the end result.

Hey guys, so I borrowed my friend's GR07 and just had a chance to really give it a good listen.

I'm thoroughly floored by how good it is especially for the price.The treble is really nice,  but it's the clarity that really does the trick, right up there with the $300+ big boys.

My only issue is the somewhat poor fit which ruins the sound quite alot.

Oh i can understand getting them recabled when a channel starts cutting out. But by the sound of things shpickering only has cable greening which is a different issue. Once my cable plays up i will most probably get them recabled aswell.

How much improvement will there be in sound quality after 150 hrs? 300hrs? how many percent? Should i be expecting a BIG 50% change ?

LOL Are you seriously expecting 50% improvement after burn-in? I personally didn't find it change that much with burn-in - maybe a touch smoother treble, so let's say like a 5% change.

Like 0.005 percent better wink.gif material burn in is almost complete crap, psychological burn in is very real though

I know - I was trying to push BTG a bit. Why wait until your cable fails, though? Just think of a nice, sturdy cable that doesn't tangle at all...I'd say it's worth it based on the improved ergonomics.
