sorry guys but your all wrong, the gr07 sounds good on basically everything 

=)!

 

absolutely still in love with my gr07be after almost 8 months with it. (i feel like i will get another one if my current pair shorts out). so glad they still make the be versions. its too bad i never had a chance to try the mkII =( you win some you lose some! (big win for me anyway)

Honestly I wouldn't sweat the MK2 opportunity lost. I have 3 Classics, and they have more differences between them frequency response-wise than I've seen indicated from GR07 MK1 to MK2. Not sure how much stock one should put into the MK1 vs MK2 differences that were reported, particularly the part about sibilance being slightly reduced, when I've got a pair of Classic GR07 that are extremely sibilant, and one pair which sounds much closer to flat and much more polite in the 6K area.

 

It's obviously not often someone buys more than 1 of a headphone at the same time, but the times I've done and been able to do direct comparisons, the differences in FR have often been quite dramatic (ie several dBs relative over the entire spectrum). Which can be the difference between a sibilant cold sound and a non-sibilant more warm bassy sound (I believe 6dB is considered the difference in volume that humans perceive as double or half the energy).

I had the same experience with an MKI and MKII. The MKII was clearly much bright and borderline sibilant in comparison to the duller MKI.

Damn, again with the lottery, I ordered a classic two days ago... I just hope this time I will be luckier, my mkii was not borderline sibilant, it was sibilant and then some.

Hope it works out for you Skies. Also hopefully you can find some narrower tips to soften them somewhat if necessary.

Thanks mate! I will find a way to make the treble smoother or it will die trying ;).
