OK, I see he did say that. I'm only covering one of the vents, though (under the nozzle). If it makes the difference between me using it and not, I think it's worth trying.

As long as one is open is fine. So block the front vent, it's ok, also try to black and do a needle hole, rules out the need for a BE version

Front = outside, back = under nozzle? And how does it help to block the vent, then put a needle hole in the tape?

Is there any update to the new models coming up for vsonic?

I was more interested in the upcoming models. I can not find anything on the vsonic site regarding this. 

 

thanks...

Finally got around to taking a few pics of the GR07s as recabled by BTG-Audio. Brian's work is first-rate.

Very nice!

I noticed that the silver housing that holds the ear buds on my GR07's was bent downward toward the smaller angle made between the plastic housing.  I promptly bent it back with a bit of force.  Has this happened to anyone and do I risk the silver part shearing off if I have to bend it again the future?  I'm worried about this and I don't know what kind of warranty VSonic has in regards to this issue.  I have never stepped on them so it's quite baffling why this happened.

 they ARE supposed to move. there's a joint there. the reason for that is to achieve better fit via matching the angle of your ear canal

:D

Yeah... they are supposed to bend there so you can achieve the right insertion angle. :p

Yea, pretty neat feature. I'm really digging these things. I thought I met my match with the RE400, but I'm thinking I like the GR07 more. Definitely a more spacious presentation, but still impactful. And the frequency range is right up my alley.

I think they are on a relatively level playing field, each doing many things well and some things better than the other.  I moved from the GR07 to the RE-400 but I definitely miss the Vsonics from time to time...so tempting but it's not in the budget at the moment.  Glad you're enjoying them!

I've gone through a bunch of IEMs including EX-1000, RE-600, W4, Shure 5xx, UE 900,  and I'll grant that some may even be technically superior to the GR07.  I still always come back to the VSonics.  Nothing seems to satisfy me like GR07 mk1

This makes sense as it definitely feels smooth when moving the housing.  For the longest time, my comply tips kept falling off because the angle was small enough to not let the tip fit over one half of the housing.  Now it's been fixed and I have no worries about breaking them.  Awesome!
