Can I use instrumental/classical music to burn in? Or is there something about vocals that make vocals essential for burn in?
What about this "pink noise" stuff?
I just read this in the sound science forum...this is the best music to us for burn in:
Well, there's a marked improvement after just ~24 hours of burn in with my normal music at the highest volume that I would consider listening to.
Sounds come through clearer. Highs are not as scratchy, though they do get suppressed by the mids. I hope the highs improve as I continue burning this in for the rest of the week. The headphones now sound a bit better than my S4i's, with more bass, but less pronounced highs.
i agreee i had the same experience (had the s4, listened to the gr07be) sold my s4 immediately there was no contest.
the s4 is way over hyped
the treble is lacking control and is a lot more siblant> gr07 which is mildly so, i don't even notice it now that i'm accustomed to the sound.
the mids are more natural
the bass is leagues leagues ahead, its not overwhelming while still punchy but very clean and superb sub bass depth
the soundstage is amazing its soo wide for an iem i feel like i'm listening to a large closed back headphone
plus its higher impedence so its you theres less variation in volume (theres smaller gaps in volume) and also that means its less variable between devices
the only thing the s4 is better is isolation because its a completely sealed design
comfort i think both are great (s4 maybe a bit better because of the oval tips and the angled nozzle) but the gr07 has a adjustable nozzle
I think my bass edition is dying. It makes a crackling/windy sound in the right ear and loses sound a little bit. From what I've read, it's called "driver flex." Weird thing is... since this started happening over the past couple days, it seems like I can hear the instrument separation better (maybe it's in my head). I'm in the warranty period, so I am exchanging them, but I was wondering if anyone has any opinions on them separating the instruments better since they began "breaking."
Good morning (Dutch time) music friends,
Allthough in a thread in which probably everything worth mentioning about VSonic's GR07 has been in the spotlight,
I still feel the urge of adding something in my first post in this great forum.
Hoping you will forgive me but it's kind of my way of dealing with a very big personal disappointment.....
Here I find myself sitting, my last week received VSonic GR07 Classic's in my ears, their first 50 hours past.
They present my preferred music in about every aspect the way I anticipated after reading many posts about them.
Bass: very well controlled, not overwhelming
Mids: very present, not prominent, easy to absorb
Highs: everything there, not sibillant, relaxing
Speed: nice attack, very to the point, very precise
3D: not so great so far (may become better with more hours)
Overall: neutral, everything is there, exeptional for their price
I was secretly hoping that these baby's would help me to end my journey in finding my optimum earphones and
actually they almost do, so what more could I possibly whish for?
They don't move me.
I don't feel like dancing, humming, not even tap a foot.
They present everything in a very well controlled, polite way, but to me no soul......
Well, of course one can't judge all aspects before actually hearing new purchases (if any) but when it appears
to be just that last touch which is missing personally for me, it's kind of disappointing
Ah well, back to the GR10's and apparently the game is still on
Economies of scale? They mght have streamlined their production process and able to do the same thing for cheaper. Regardless of it, LMUE has confirmed that the classics used the same bio-cellulose drivers so there is nothing to argue about here.
As for the Bass edition, it is a slightly different signature compared to the original and apparently there are a lot of people in China asking for the BE to be put back into production, so there they are. A lot of the drama behind the GR07 exist on Weibo (China's twitter) and Vsonic's CEO responds to them via Weibo too.
There are not so many tips in the box of classic version, it is one of the points why it is cheaper.
When we are talking about earphones they are always cheap to produce (just in the aspect of production, not the whole cycle including research, etc). So when you earn enough money to cover the cost of reseach you can reduce the price, sorry for some economic truisms. I don't think Vsonic is doing something extraordinary, it is just a question of pricing.
